My new, never before released stand-alone thriller called NICK OF TIME is now available as an e-book through Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, and most other book e-tailers. It has it all...romance, time travel, thrills, chills, and a touch of the paranormal. I'm also working on rereleasing the stand-alone thrillers that were published by HarperCollins back in the '90s as e-books.
Can forensics be fun? You betcha! Find out how by solving crimes along with wry and irreverent nurse-turned-coroner Mattie Winston in WORKING STIFF, SCARED STIFF, FROZEN STIFF, & LUCKY STIFF (all written under the pseudonym Annelise Ryan). You can find more details about Mattie Winston at www.mattiewinston.com. Check out Mattie's blog while you're there.
Then drink a toast to crime-solving with MURDER ON THE ROCKS, the first book in the new Mack's Bar series by my latest alter ego, Allyson K. Abbott.
LUCKY STIFF, the fourth installment in the Mattie Winston series. Who murdered paraplegic, Jack Allen, on Christmas Day, and where is all the money Jack won at the casino a few months ago? What really happened to farmer, Donald Strommen, whose body just resurfaced weeks after he went missing during a fishing trip on a nearby lake? And most important of all, will Mattie finally get "lucky" with Hurley? Join Mattie, Hurley, Izzy, and the rest of the Sorenson crew as they try to solve two of the most bizarre crimes any of them have ever seen.
NICK OF TIME: Two
women separated by decades of time
hold the future of mankind in their
hands. Two men are tied to them by tangled threads of destiny that must
be carefully unraveled. One of these men has the means to destroy the
women along with most of the human race. The other has the power to
unite them and save the world, but first he must find a way to traverse
the barriers of time, death, and his own heart.
When Dr. Rachel Mayton learns her new miracle drug might one day lead to mankind’s extinction, she is forced to unravel the complex threads of destiny that tie her and one of her patients, Tim Nerad, to a crazed man and heroic woman who live thirty-six years in the future. In the process Rachel must divine the meaning behind her dead husband’s message, sacrifice everyone she holds most dear, and come to terms with her growing but forbidden love for Tim, a man who possesses the body of one person and the soul of another
COMING IN AUGUST 2013....
Check out MURDER ON THE ROCKS, the first book in my new mystery series written under the pseudonym Allyson K. Abbott (just call me Sybil) based in a bar in Milwaukee. The main character is Mack Dalton, the bar's owner, a woman already haunted by the unsolved murder of her father when she finds the body of a woman in the alley behind the bar, not far from where her father was killed. What's more, the woman was her father's girlfriend at the time of his death. Mack helps Detective Duncan Albright try to solve the crimes, but her efforts are both helped and hindered by an entertaining cast of customers who are also potential suspects, and the vagaries of Mack's synesthesia, a rare neurological disorder that colors -- at times literally -- the way she experiences the world. Drink recipes are included!

SCARED STIFF, the second book in the Mattie Winston series.
Halloween night in Sorenson, Wisconsin, usually resembles any other small town: trick-or-treaters, costume parties, and lots of cheerfully scary decorations. But Deputy Coroner Mattie Winston is finding this year a little different, because among all the fake carnage is a very real, very dead body.
FROZEN STIFF, the third book in the Mattie Winston series.
It's a case with more twists than Mattie's own crazy love life, and it'll take all of her forensic skills to unravel the increasingly bizarre clues and find the killer before she herself becomes just another cold case!
