The Curious Case of Prince Charming
By Charlene Mattson
When Princess Leticia is kidnapped for the sixth time in two years, private investigator William Tenys is hired by her parents to solve the mystery of how sorcerer Kalen has managed to commit the dastardly deed so many times. It should have been a straightforward enough investigation, but William discovers that all is not what it seems. With a sorcerer who may, or may not, be evil; a princess who may, or may not, be kidnapped and a prince who William just cannot bring himself to like in spite of his heroic qualities, William has to untangle the mystery before he loses his contract and then his life.

The Glass Slipper Conspiracy
By Charlene Mattson
Saving a Princess, rescuing a kingdom from an ambitious and wicked mage and helping a pair of lovers to stay together should have been the hardest thing William Tenys ever did….

 And now the kingdom of Altria’s premier detective is ready to rest on his laurels and start investigating things like missing jewelry and cheating spouses. But the wicked never sleep, so William discovers when he is hired by a desperate young lady to investigate, of all things, a cobbler creating high class shoes.

Everyone knows that a young noble lady needs just the right things to make her happily ever after come true, but this particular lady seems to be attracting all the wrong luck. Now she has a dress that should have been made from silk-but instead proved to be linen-jewelry made from fool’s gold and painted glass and worse of all, shoes made from a material that looks like glass, but proves to be nearly fatal when worn. And she’s not the only one or the last one to be struggling to find her Happily Ever After in the Kingdom of Altria….

Here a Wolf, There a Wolf…

 William Tenys is taking a much need vacation out of Altria city for a while. Some country air, fresh food picked from the orchard, maybe a lithe farm girl or two to ease his lonely heart after the loss of Farrin and generally a chance to get out of the city for a while. He finds what he things will be the perfect place for some solitary thoughts but he is instead thrust in the middle of two warring clans.

A murder has been committed and both sides are demanding answers. What’s worse is that no matter what that answer is, the two clans will likely go to bloody battle with each other and bring down William and anyone else in the vicinity with them. To top it all off, both clans are families of werewolves and neither group in particular has humanity’s best interests at heart. In order to save his fellow man, stave off a bloody civil war and get paid, William has to figure out who the murderer was, why the person did it, and how to stop it from happening again. And the full moon is coming….
