A journey into the unknown. A rebellion against family, culture and society. A love against all odds.
From Scandinavia to the Middle East, a young woman travels to discover herself and finds a world of passion and history, war and peace. A whirlwind romance takes a dramatic turn, leaving Olivia caught between countries, belonging nowhere, and with the love of her life in danger far away.
From the award-winning author of The Cosmopolitan Islander comes an uplifting tale of adventure, conflict and reconciliation that never shies away from brutal reality, yet sparkles with the sheer love of life.

Desert Skies, Rebel Souls is a bittersweet coming-of-age story set under the desert sky against the backdrop of music and key events of the nineties – to be enjoyed by adventurous globetrotters and readers longing to escape.

“M.P. Tonnesen has created something really beautiful in Desert Skies, Rebel Souls – a flowing, immersive narrative with a warm heart, gorgeous settings and a feeling of youth, optimism and zest for life.” Freda Warrington, Author of the Blood Wine series




A Word from the Author

photo author M P TonnesenDesert Skies, Rebel Souls is about a young woman’s thrilling journey of self-discovery and rebellion. Olivia is breaking free from the confinements of her safe, predictable upper-class life in the wealthy suburbs of Copenhagen. She travels to a small kibbutz in rural Israel where she meets Chaim, a young kibbutznik who is about to join the Israeli army like all his peers. They fall deeply in love, but their relationship is soon challenged by geography and the gore of war.

It is an uplifting tale of adventure, yet a bitter-sweet love story which questions the concepts of hatred, fate, war and peace as the protagonist deconstructs both her perception of the world, her values and her identity.

It was a joy to revisit my old memories of living and travelling in the Middle East while I was writing this exciting story. I hope you will enjoy reading it too and hopefully be swept away to this beautiful part of the world.

A book of poems. My first. Falling out from somewhere. At last.




A Word from the Author

Author Buddy Cushman pictureSomewhere amidst writing my supernatural and apocalyptic fiction a poem fell out of my life one morning. Never much of a poetry fan, I cannot say from where or how or why it showed up. But a few days later a second arrived, in my head and down into the notebook. Then a third. After a few months I found myself with 43 poems, including four haiku, and they are here — “Minor Revelations”. And now I read poetry, write poetry, and call myself a poet. How’s that for cool?

Know More

Sophie Fields is a little girl tortured by her memories of Damien Smith, a much-loved and respected church elder with a secret lust for the unmentionable. After his misdeeds are covered up by church leaders, she climbs to the roof of her house and jumps to her death, right in front of her shocked brother, Charlie.

Twenty years later, detective Harry Fletcher is still haunted by the personal demons associated with the church cover-up. After losing his faith, his wife, and now his partner, Fletcher learns that Charlie Fields has come back to town with one mission: to kill everyone responsible for his sister’s death. It is Fletcher’s job to track and stop the crazed killer. But as it becomes clear who the main targets are, Fletcher finds himself in the midst of a moral quagmire. Although he sees justice in Charlie’s crusade, the killer seems to be taking out others not responsible for his family’s destruction. As Fletcher and his new partner battle each other in a test of ideology and limits of the law, the real demons show up and change everything.

In this chilling tale of suspense, revenge, and evil, a police detective wrestles with his moral conscience while attempting to stop a serial killer avenging his sister’s death.




A Word from the Author

Author Chris Miller pictureThe inspiration for this novel came when I was a young man attending a youth group at a non-denominational Christian church in our town. An elder there was found to have been molesting several girls, and he ended up going to jail and dying there. Through it all, I was stunned. Most everyone was stunned. This guy was respected, not only in the church, but in the entire community. Wealthy, self-made man, veteran, and very giving with his substantial wealth.

Then I witnessed the backlash on families, on relationships in the church. The church actually split not terribly long after, and then there were two churches from the one. In the midst of this, the ‘what if?’ questions started cropping up in my mind. What if one of these poor girls killed herself as a result? What if the whole thing had been covered up by the other church leaders? What if someone came back for revenge many years later? What would this situation have done to such a person, and how would they have changed?

All of these things swirled in my mind for several years until, one day, a story was born. I worked on it, wrote it, thinking surely this would need to be Christian Fiction at first, but soon realizing during rewrites that that angle just didn’t fit. It was dark. Gritty. Mean. Violent. And so it shed that cloak and turned into the relentless, R-rated tome it is today.
And even though I wrote it, it still haunts me. It’s totally fictional. But the ‘what ifs?” continue to linger in my mind…
