I’m Stan Morris. I was born in Linwood, California, and was raised in Norwalk and Concord, California. In 1972, I moved to New Mexico. I met a girl at college in 1975, set out to score, and have been married to her since 1977. We lived in Texas for five years and then moved to Maui. We have two grown boys, both gainfully employed, thank goodness. My wife had the career and I had the job, so I worked at a variety of those before developing a computer business in the late 1980’s. Now we are both retired and living on a farm. I garden, watch sports, listen to music, read, and write. I don’t make much money at it, so occasionally I have to ask my wife for my allowance. I like science fiction (Heinlein, Asimov, Weber, Flint), romance (Krentz, Roberts, Morisi, Chesney), mystery (JD Robb, MC Beaton), historical fiction (Lindsey, Stewart), and history books (Shelby Foote, David McCullough, William J. Bernstein.)

She is teamed up with Nicholas Bennette, an agent who has been promoted to the directorship of a Southwestern Ohio field office. At first, they find it difficult to work with one another, but eventually a passionate romance blooms.

Lauren has a special secret. She’s an empath and to solve the crime, she must not only rely on her training and education, but also her supernatural abilities to see through the eyes of the victims. She hopes to give a voice to the dead, peace to the families, and ultimately stop the killings. However, making sense of the visions proves to be one of her greatest challenges.

As time passes and the body count rises, Lauren fits the puzzle pieces together and discovers the identity of the killer. She soon learns she too has been targeted by The Phantom and comes face to face with him. When Lauren Harris finds herself at his mercy, she realizes she’s left much undone in her own life.

3 copies of Shadow Pack by Marc Daniel (paranormal fiction).

Blurb for SHADOW PACK:

Being a top predator is of little use when you are your own worst nightmare. Michael Biörn has known this for a thousand years, and he has been running from the ghosts of his past ever since.
After answering Lieutenant Harrington’s call for help, Michael quickly finds himself in Houston staring at a peculiar crime scene. An expert in preternatural wildlife, Michael immediately identifies the killer as a werewolf. The beast’s motivation for the killing remains unclear; but one thing is sure, Michael has no desire to stick his nose in wolf business. After all, the werewolves have hunted down his kin to the brink of extinction, and as the sole survivor of his kind, he strives to keep a low profile.
Michael’s resolve instantly vanishes when he finds Harrington and his wife savagely murdered in their home. As he sets to unearth the true motivations behind his friends’ assassination, the body count rises, and Michael soon becomes a suspect in the eyes of the law. But the police are the least of his concerns; the werewolves have uncovered his true nature, and they are coming for him.
