When Delia chose to major in archaeology, she didn't imagine herself scrounging for pickaxes and gold pans to sell on auction sites. What she doesn't imagine is stumbling across a decapitated body in an old mine near Prescott. Something dangerous has come to the mountains, and two Harley-riding strangers are the only ones who seem to have a clue. They speak a language Delia has never heard and carry mysterious artifacts she's never seen. Investigating these strangers might lead her to discoveries that change archaeology forever.
"Archeologist/Scavengers, Techie, Aliens, Tennis Pro and Monster."
Delia never thought her love of adventure and artifact hunting would lead her to discover such oddities as man-slaying monsters, magical swords, and elves on motorcycles. Oh, and there's also the ancient Spartan warrior who's been stranded in the present - he's offering to work as her bodyguard in exchange for English lessons. She's barely wrapped her mind around these strange new developments when another monster arrives, this time in Sedona, Arizona.
Before tragedy left her crippled, Artemis "Temi" Sidaris was a world-class tennis player at the height of her career. The sport was her passion, her dream, and all she ever wanted to do. Fighting monsters...was not part of the plan. But when a pair of pointy-eared strangers offers to heal her injury if she's willing to wield a powerful sword to protect humanity...how can she resist?
Hard-boiled, private detective Rachel Cord pursues multiple threads seeking a runaway teen and why gay performers are being beaten at Miss Kitty's Kathouse Kabaret - threads that twist and bind Rachel within a tight cord of lost love, child pornography, rape, murder, and near insanity, leaving her to question her personal credo that "Life's a bitch. So am I."
"WHAT A TOP PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR"

"FAST PACE GREAT LISTEN"
From the preface: "When I was four years old, I was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a neuromuscular disease that results in the progressive weakening of the skeletal muscles and eventually the heart. I started writing poetry when I was 13 years old, not long before I began relying on a wheelchair to get around. Dynamic Parts contains a few of the poems I have created since then.... Dynamic Parts covers diverse topics, including nature, life, death, leisure, and love."
