Teed Up For Terror

In this light-hearted parody of the membership of a private golf club, located in Bellevue, Washington, they stumble upon a gruesome murder. The incident is only the beginning of a seemingly unrelated sequence of events so heinous that it eventually attracts national attention.

Little Dirt Road Book

With their recent move to South Whidbey Island, only the O’Malley’s would stumble upon drug smugglers, embezzlers, and murderers amongst the retirees. The quirky, pastoral island, reachable by a less than speedy ferry from Mukilteo or the narrow, deteriorating Deception Pass bridge, is no match for the wicked men about to visit.


Somehow, someway the O’Malleys have found themselves in the thick of things once again. On peaceful, bucolic Whidbey Island, they become entangled in a corporate plot to stifle a paradigm-shattering discovery, one that promises to upend conventional thinking, topple markets, and create an entirely new industry.

Along with a familiar cast of characters, the lighthearted caper manages to bring together a missing foot, an award-winning cabernet, and a vengeance-seeking duo into another improbable and humorous adventure.
