As the new editor-in-chief for LA Chronicle, Traci Johnson is determined to change the California paper’s narrative. She’s tired of stories about police brutality, gang violence and drugs, and wants to focus on positive African-American stories. But when rapper Tupac Shakur gets shot it’s breaking news that must be covered, even though the incident epitomizes the type of topic she’s trying to avoid, and the type of man she despises.

Marcus Moore is a product of South Central Los Angeles. He could have easily been one of its statistics but he stays out of trouble and becomes an undercover agent for the LAPD. When Tupac gets shot he knows it’s not random. In fact he believes the trail of blood will lead back to a group of men he’s investigating, the reason he’s in Vegas. Meeting sexy journalist Traci Johnson is a tempting distraction, but her assumptions based on his appearance and the culture he embraces are a huge turn-off.

Tupac dies, and Marcus surprisingly finds comfort in Traci’s arms. Will what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas, or can the two get past stark societal differences and turn one night’s passion into a lifetime of love?

What if the friendship that made you was based on a lie?

Wherever he went, Claire had got there first. Parties, protests, benefit gigs. He would never have joined the group if it hadn’t been for Claire. And if he hadn’t joined the group, maybe no one would have died.

Journalist Paolo Bennett gets a call from Mark, a friend and activist from his student days in the 80s. Mark has been exposed as a former undercover cop. And his police handler is lying dead in his garden.

Paolo isn’t sure if Mark’s a suspect or the intended victim. He walked away from the police to live among the people he once spied on. Who doesn’t want him dead?

Mark asks for his help but he isn’t making it easy, disappearing just as everyone wants answers. As Paolo investigates his own past, he has to ask himself some tough questions.

Why does he want to believe Mark, despite all his lies? Was their group linked to an unexplained death on campus?

And why does Paolo suspect, even now, that Claire knows more than he does?

#Excerpt2 “Curse of the Sea: Book One of The Admiralty Archives” by Joni Parker



Curse of the Sea 3DTitle: Curse of the Sea

Author: Joni Parker

Genre: Urban Fantasy

A NATO training exercise goes terribly wrong when five warships from different countries are mysteriously transported to Eledon, the Realm of the Elves. The warrior, Lady Alexin, is charged to escort the troops back home to London in the year 2031 with the aid of the Wizard Ecstasy and a magic shrinking potion. Yet, when the authorities question her story, Alex is detained and imprisoned under suspicion of terrorism. Caught in a web of politics, betrayal and bungling bureaucracy, the confusing world of the future will push her magical gifts to their limit, and her own future will hang in the balance, caught between “justice” and the place she calls home.



Chapter 4:

Alex continued with the introductions. “This is Captain Jonas. He’s the captain of one of those gray ships, the HMS Camelot. This is Ecstasy. He’s the wizard who came from the mortal world in this ship.”

Captain Jonas stared at him suspiciously. “How is that possible? How did you come here on this ship? It’s made of wood.”

“Yes, she’s my pride and joy—isn’t she lovely?” Ecstasy clutched his hands together. “If I’m not mistaken, you’re wearing the uniform of the British Royal Navy, am I correct, Captain, sir?” He snapped to attention and saluted like a Brit.

“Yes, do I detect a London accent?” The Captain returned his salute.

“Yes, Captain, sir, I’ve lived in London for many years. I still have a flat in Piccadilly.”

“How did you get here? What route did you take?”

“I flew up to the moon and took a left. There’s this round thingie in the sky and my ship flew through it.” Ecstasy made a circle with his hands.


“It’s like a ring of white light.”

“A portal?”

“Yes, that’s it.”

“How many passengers can you take?”

“Ten. More than that, she doesn’t fly right. I once had a party with fifteen–”

“We have over seven hundred. It’ll take forever, but it’s a start. You can take us back to London. How long does it take?”

“About twenty-four hours. But I haven’t said I’d do it.”

“You will do it by order of His Majesty’s Royal Navy, Wizard or I’ll cut you down myself!” Captain Jonas glared at him. “Do I make myself perfectly clear?”

“Aye, aye, sir!” Ecstasy saluted again and stomped his right foot.

Captain Jonas nodded. “Very well. That settles that.” The Captain turned to Lord Odin. “Once our men have been returned, Ecstasy can continue to shuttle others back to Earth.”

“May I recommend the use of a shrinking potion so more people can be taken on each trip?” Lord Odin raised his eyebrows.

“How many people can we get on this ship if we used this shrinking potion?”

Lord Odin pursed his lips. “I’d estimate a hundred passengers could safely travel in that manner. I can send Alex to administer the counter-potion. It’s very safe, but we don’t have any here. I can have some delivered in a few days.”

Chapter 5:

After more greetings and introductions, Lord Odin took a white ceramic bottle from Canfis. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is the shrinking potion. I’ll administer it to Colonel Jeffrey so you can see it’s completely safe.” He took a glass tube from Canfis. “All you need is one drop in a glass of water. This phase will take about five minutes. Colonel Jeffrey?”

Jeffrey stepped forward and drank the water. Then he lay down on the floor on a blanket. Within seconds, his eyes were closed and he was sleeping soundly.

One of the sailors stretched out a tape measure. “He’s six-foot-two. That’s one hundred and eighty-eight centimeters for our metric friends.” Then he gasped as Jeffrey’s body shrank and checked the tape measure again. “Twelve inches? No shit! Thirty point five centimeters, folks.” He picked up the little body. “He’s light, around ten pounds, maybe five kilos.”

Captain Jonas knelt next to Jeffrey and put his head down close to his face. He touched his neck lightly. “He’s breathing and has a heartbeat.”

The crowd fell silent for a few moments before a nervous buzz arose.

After thirty minutes, Lord Odin stepped forward. “Alex, it’s time to give the counter-potion.”

Alex took the blue bottle and a glass tube from Canfis. Kneeling next to Jeffrey, she removed the stopper and slid the glass tube inside. She covered the end with her finger and carefully opened his mouth to place a drop on his teeth. She backed away, waiting and watching, as Colonel Jeffrey returned to full size.

The crowd gasped and covered their mouths.

The sailor measured him again. “Six-foot-two, back to normal.” He pushed a button on the case, retracting the metal tape with a snap.

Captain Jonas came over and extended his hand to Colonel Jeffrey, helping him up. “How do you feel, Colonel?”

“Fine, like I took a nap. Did I really shrink down?”

“Yes, you were about a foot long. We measured you.” He held his hands a foot apart to show him. “Do you feel dizzy or nauseated?”

“No, I’m fine.” Jeffrey shrugged. “It really does work.”

“Walk around.”

Jeffrey took a short stroll around the room.

Lord Odin rose from his chair. “As you can see, there are no ill effects from this potion; you’ll be completely safe. It’s the best and fastest way to get you home.”

The Gift Of Friendship Is Invaluable.

There is an opinion that when you tell your friends about your joy, then the joy becomes more and more. Take care of your friends, this is very important. Everyone makes mistakes, but if we love our friends we will find in ourselves mercy in order to forgive the mistake of a friend.

Talk to the child, what is friendship? Why do people make friends? Is it important to have friends? Why do people sometimes act differently from what we want? What is the charity?
