An Alec Winters Series:
Read an Interview with Diane Rapp about why I wrote this series: Interview
This series is dark fiction which means that it deals with raw, dark emotions, such as death, murder, sexual assault, incest, pedophilia, and other very dark topics. If you can’t handle such reading material, please do not read. The Alec Winters Series begins with Prelude and it’s a prequel to Crescent City (An Alec Winters Series, Book 2). It all began when young Alec Winters discovered his father was a pedophile, he walked in on Buck Winters sexually molesting his younger sister, Catalina. Alec’s ensuing rage and desire for vengeance propelled his supernatural transformation to angel-demon. Once the change had begun, there wasn’t anything anyone could do, especially Alec.
In Prelude, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at sixteen-year-old Alec Winters, a New Orleans teen-jock, before his strange, supernatural transformation. Discover little-known facts about the cultural differences of the deep-south and a good-ole-boy society where ‘right’ is often seen as ‘wrong’ and the prevailing attitudes might surprise you. Was the Winters’ secret family conflict instrumental in changing Alec’s life or was it his destiny? From that moment on, Alec punishes the wicked men and women responsible while he saves their innocent victims in this dark, urban-fantasy thriller. Then, continue the series to read Alec’s controversial story when he returns to the gritty streets of New Orleans in Crescent City, to Mobile Alabama in Port City, and to Melbourne Florida in Harbor City, the last installment in this emotionally-charged series. Not for the faint of heart, not recommended for those under the age of 17.
Serena McKay Crime Novels:
Serena McKay, P.I., won’t be your mother’s favorite female sleuth. She’s certainly not of the Jessica Fletcher ilk and this is not a cozy mystery. This is a dark, dystopian crime novel which deals with all aspects of the darker emotions and aspects of life. If you cannot handle such reading material, please do not read. Serena McKay has been abused, used, and battered. She has suffered through devastating emotional and physical abuse, and yet, she still has the heart to help her clients. She lives in a post-apocalyptic time where existence is nightmarish at best and disastrously chilling at worst. As a strong, albeit dysfunctionally-flawed private investigator, Serena uses every weapon in her arsenal to solve bloodcurdling crimes in this hard-boiled, dark-fiction, dystopian thriller series and she does it all while a notorious serial killer is after her emerald green eyes…
Serena McKay has been abused, humiliated, tormented, and degraded, first as a child, then when training to be a police officer, and even again after making the grade as a law enforcement officer. She takes on lost causes and hopeless cases which inevitably force her to confront head-on the callous establishment and its misogynist operatives. She knows exactly what it’s like to suffer abduction and rape, because she’s survived multiple episodes of each. She’s battered and bruised, angry and broken – yet somehow still in touch with her humanity and possesses an overwhelming imperative to see justice done. Enjoy the gritty story of a feisty private investigator that gets down and dirty solving crimes. Her A-List specialty – abduction, abuse, adultery, and any asshole that gets in her way… all while a serial killer is after her green eyes. Enjoy the conclusion to this story. Does Serena win or does the serial killer escape once more?
Tookie, now fifteen-years-old, shares her nightmarish memories as a survivor of unspeakable and depraved atrocities committed by the very system in charge of her protection in this dark-fiction, tell-all novella. Lost in a corrupt ‘system,’ Tookie suffered mind-blowing sexual and emotional abuse that would cripple any child. Although it’s devastating to read about these horrific crimes, Tookie’s inspiring hard-won recovery, and the devotion of her loving grandmother are breathtaking in this “based-in-part-on-a-true-story” novella.
