“When the sun goes down on my life, you’ll all come apart like ripped balloons.” When stingy self-made millionaire and widower Leon Farrell dies, he leaves behind a legacy of family dysfunction—and a missing will. It’s soon clear that his three grown children, Edgar, Gunther, and Shirley, don’t handle loss well—the possible loss of a fortune, that is. And when Edgar hires a private investigator to track down the will, it’s just the beginning of a search that will lead the siblings to re-visit their childhoods, uncover buried secrets, and ultimately learn for themselves what it means to be a family… Praise for the Novels of Gwynne Forster “Wise and wonderful as it points out, once again, the importance of honesty and appreciating what you have while you have it.” —Publishers Weekly on A Different Kind of Blues
"Beware the Boar who is slow to anger." So declares the Teaching. And now the War Pigs, a race of half-human half-pigs, are ready to march. After decades of internment in the Mojave, they have a mission: to arm themselves and blow up Los Angeles. Thus begin the adventures of Overlord, Wart Hog, Xerxes, Sergeant Snout, Socko, McPork, Tusker, Brunhilde and the Swine Maidens, and the entire War Pig army, as well as the bus-full of Las-Vegas-bound tourists that they capture on their way to I-95. Their first destination: Wild Bill Snopes' Mojave Military Academy, the U.S. government's main storage depot for retired weapons. Next, the desert town of Nitro, where the law requires all citizens to carry guns, followed by an assault on the Doom Valley Airport. And then on to Los Angeles itself, the San Cochino nuclear facility, and a climactic pitched battle with Valley shoppers and the U.S. Army at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. At the action's core is the unrequited love of Wart Hog for Astrid, one of the human captives. When she escapes, his pursuit leads him through the streets of Hollywood to a personal Armageddon on the nighttime Fourth-of-July beach at Santa Monica.

"That place is evil. Fernwood has always been a house of death." More than a century of secrets have been locked away in a house abandoned decades ago. Now the McCaslin family comes to the seaside Northern California hamlet of Golden Bay with the promise of a fresh start in a home some say is haunted. "The people that used to live there are all dead." "That house puts a lot of people on edge. Some people believe Fernwood is cursed." " Every member of the Fernwood family fell victim to the curse. Even people who were close to them died freakish deaths. You see, the curse is like a contagious disease, spreading to anyone who has ever had dealings with the family or comes in contact with that house." But tragedy extends beyond the overgrown grounds of the stately manor. A body found in the swollen waters of a nearby creek triggers a major murder investigation-the first in over 50 years. Confounding police and shocking locals, the widening probe affects the lives of some of Golden Bay's most prominent citizens-both living and dead. "I know some secrets, some I shouldn't tell."
