It’s been a long time coming, and to all my faithful fans, I do apologize. Life always gets in the way of my writing plans. It makes me remember a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” During the last quarter, I had planned to drop several books, including V4. My expectations, however, did not include my husband nearly dying in sleep, kids with insane homework assignments and several family trips, outings and visits. Not to mention, RiverHouse opened a new office dead smack in the middle of the financial district of Manhattan (NYC). I have been buuusssyyy.
The good news is that Adam is doing much better. You don’t realize how special they are until they are nearly taken from you , right beside you. For that, I am so thankful to my dear sweet savior, Jesus Christ. The office is working out great in New York and will offer even more opportunities for readers and authors alike who follow RiverHouse and the family visits were awesome. I saw my cousin for the first time in ten years and it was amazing. We are even moving to the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area next summer.
But with everything going on, my writing slowed to a pitiful crawl. Now, I’m back. And as normal after being pulled away from my work, I am on fire.
I have a lot in front of me. Saving Anya and The World In Reverse are due out both on Christmas Day. It will be out no later than December 31st. Please be patient with me. If I pull this off, this will be the biggest project that I’ve ever taken on.
Now on to Volume 4 and Book One of the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov.
The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 4
Now a widower, Dmitry Medlov’s life has completely changed. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, his aspirations quickly move from more money to more power. Only the power he seeks is held by the commanding and elusive Czar of the underworld, Boss Smirnov.
When Dmitry successfully talks the underboss and the all-knowing eye of the underworld, Khalid, into arranging a meeting between he and Boss Smirnov, he has no idea what troubles he is about to face. There are secrets that will be exposed in Prague that will forever change his young life again, leading to a decision that will rock the underworld for good.
Meanwhile, back in London, the city is buzzing about the deaths of the entire board of directors of Dmitry’s newly acquired business, Hutton Industries, minus the company’s former front man, who was involved in a gruesome home invasion that left him blind, deaf, mute and paralyzed.
With no witnesses, leads or proof combined with the botched attempt on his own life during the horrid chain of events, Dmitry is looked over as a person of interest by Scotland Yard and is given carde blache to turn his new private company into his personal money laundering hub right under the public’s nose with the help of his Africa girlfriend, Oxford University senior and business genius, Elsa. And it’s just in time for his new secret alliance with the leaders of a powerful paramilitary sect led by Elsa’s father in Angola, Africa.
Dmitry’s new found power creates a checkmate for his ambitions to be boss but puts a target squarely on his back by not only organized crime heads around the world but also by his own brother, Ivan. Secret alliances are formed. Money is exchanged, and a definite war is looming. Only no one is willing to give up as much as Dmitry is to be king.

Dmitry Medlov wasn’t always a billionaire crime boss. His rise to the top was a painstaking process that took many years and many trials and tribulations. From breaking out of prison on a twenty-year bid in Russia to trafficking guns in the back alleys of London and finally toppling a dynasty run by a blood-thirsty Czar, this seven-foot tall, bad boy had to earn every penny.
Along the way, however, he also learned about a woman’s heart, the pain of losing a sick wife, the drain of taking care of a psychotic kid brother, the knowledge of finding out that he was a father and pride of building an empire all before his 25th birthday.
