This is a tale of modern family life with all its joshings and jealousies, told with humour and compassion.
Catrin is just a normal Cardiff teenager looking forward to going to university when a shocking revelation rocks her world. Before she dies, Granny Lewis reveals that Catrin ‘is not blood’. This sets off a chain reaction, causing friction within the family, and forcing them all to re-assess their relationships.
While the story revolves around the Lewis family’s home in Victoria Park, a comfortable area of Cardiff, the narrative also moves to Welsh-speaking West Wales and to the Rhondda Valley. Through these trips we glimpse three very different Welsh lifestyles.
The novel, while concentrating on Catrin’s quest to find out who she actually is, cannot but touch on very contemporary moral dilemmas – whether it is ever right to conceal truth, nature versus nurture, and boundaries within relationships.
An art collector hires Dortmunder to steal one of his own paintingsIt would take a miracle to keep Dortmunder out of jail. Though he cased the electronics store perfectly, the cops surprised him, turning up in the alley just as he was walking out the back door, a television in each hand. Already a two-time loser, without divine intervention he faces a long stretch inside. Then God sends J. Radcliffe Stonewiler, a celebrity lawyer who gets Dortmunder off with hardly any effort at all. Stonewiler was sent by Arnold Chauncey, an art lover with a cash flow problem. He asks the thief to break into his house and make off with a valuable painting in exchange for a quarter of the insurance money. Chauncey has pulled the stunt twice before, so it must look real. He’ll give Dortmunder no inside help—a shame since, when this caper spins out of control, he’ll need all the help he can get.
In 2016, a record-breaking 7.86 million Americans visited Mexico, which is a lot more than we think go to Canada. So how many end up in jail? Mexico has the largest American prisoner population outside the United States, with hundreds currently serving time. Whether you have plans to visit Mexico's pristine beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, sample authentic mole, or (like author Prisionero Anonimo) become a drug kingpin, it's always better to be prepared, because in Mexico, jail isn't just a punishment, it's a lifestyle. With nearly four years experience, Prisionero Anonimo provides expert tips for negotiating your extortion deal, navigating language barriers, making nice with the mafia boss, throwing your first party, appreciating the art of the baby tattoo, and of course, making candied apples.
A missing teenage girl leads LA corporate HR exec-turned-private eye Chuck Restic to a high profile fight over a new art museum and a forty-year-old murder that won’t stay in the past.

This is the second book in the Chuck Restic mystery series
Rocco Strangeways isn’t trying to get into all the trouble he gets into. He’s not trying to do this girl or that girl. Or let loose on this lady or that lady. He’s just like you and me. Trying to get through life. Trying to be a good person. Trying not to do every hot babe he sees. But sometimes these things just happen. Like that head ho-ho in charge Dr. Phil says, “It is what it is.” Rocco Strangeways is what he is. A doer.
