Psychic Liam Baker and his boyfriend Detective Kimball Thompson have battled the murderous and terrifyingly powerful psychic, Steven Pine twice now. Both men would love to put that chapter to rest.

"This latest instalment in the series is sooo good. Packed full of drama, danger, and nail-biting suspense."

Book 4 in my psychic mystery series finds Liam and Thompson once more battling the terrifyingly powerful Steven Pine.
If I could have put off meeting Thompson’s family forever, I would have. But he made it crystal clear it was important to him, and I got the feeling if I blew it off again, I’d lose him. So, like a good boyfriend, I accompanied him to the rustic city of Big Bear, hoping for the best. I expected awkward moments, and funny looks from his family. What I didn’t see coming was having to hang out with his perfect ex-lover, Alexander, and for dead bodies to start piling up. Working and living together, Thompson and I formed a bond I didn’t think could be broken. But when he starts doubting my abilities, and pulling away, simply because he doesn’t like what I’m saying, I start to realize maybe we were never as tight as I’d thought. Thompson needs to decide if he wants to protect the past, more than he wants to join me in the future. He thinks I’m just scared of commitment, and so I’m causing trouble. But the reality is, Thompson is the person with one foot out the door.
In Book Two, Psychic Liam Baker and Detective Kimball Thompson have embarked on a romantic relationship after battling the deadly and powerful psychic, Steven Pine months ago. They ended his brutal killing spree of young male prostitutes, and he’s safely in jail. But when someone starts murdering young college girls, some disturbing clues seem to lead back to Stephen Pine. But he’s locked up and awaiting trial. There’s no possible way he could be involved in the new murders. Yet Liam can’t shake the chilling feeling that Pine has somehow figured out a way to reach out from his jail cell to continue murdering innocent victims.
I love writing this series. It's difficult when you're dealing with a couple that is already established, but I enjoyed showing the cracks and insecurities in the relationship between Liam and Detective Thompson. There's added stress because, of course, they're also trying to solve some brutal murders.
Maxwell Thornton isn’t really a people person, but that never mattered to him because he’d lived for his career. After losing a patient during a routine hysterectomy, he’s shaken and afraid to pick up the scalpel again. He resigns his position in the city and takes a job as sole GP in the isolated town of Rainy Dale, Texas, population 1001. Rainy Dale is populated with eccentrics who test his patience and seem to think he’s not only there to treat their illnesses, but that he’s also there to hold their hand and be their therapist. When one of his most annoying patients ends up dead and floating in Maxwell’s pool, he has some explaining to do to the local sheriff. Sheriff Royce Callum is intelligent, determined and more attracted to the new doctor than he would like. He can’t imagine Maxwell is a murderer, but he also can’t exactly ignore a corpse in the sexy doctor’s pool.
Liam Baker can see things. Dead people like to visit him and tell them how they were wronged. Some might call it a gift, other’s a curse. But either way this ability makes him useful to Los Angeles homicide detective Kimball Thompson. Some madman is slitting the throats of young male prostitutes and then dumping their bodies in the desert with vague clues of pink feathers and the number five. Usually Liam can talk to the spirits of the dead. But someone is blocking him. Someone is taunting him. The case is rapidly deteriorating into a violent, psychic pissing contest and Liam can’t see far enough ahead to figure out who wins or who dies.
Book one in my psychic mystery series.

What are your thoughts? Would you like to be psychic?
Dates can simply be murder. After barely surviving a terrifying stalker, Kip is reexamining his life choices. There’s nothing like almost dying to make you take stock of things. One bright spot is that the ever maddening Merrick Dawson has stopped following him around picking on him. Merrick has begun dating Peter Harris, who by all accounts is a wonderful guy. Peter is nice. He’s handsome. He’s downright annoyingly perfect. When Kip is asked out on a romantic sunset cruise by one of Pearl Cove’s most eligible bachelors, he decides he has nothing to lose. Unless he wants to spend the rest of his days alone, he needs to be proactive about finding love. But when Kip shows up for the cruise, instead of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, he finds his date dead.
Here's what readers are saying about Book Two in the Kip O'Connor MM Mystery Series: Kip and Merrick are perfect, sloooooow burn and past animosity. Trust me, this is a GREAT book. I immediately preordered the sequel.
Book 2 in my Kip O' Connor M/M Cozy Mystery series is LIVE.
Kip O’Connor lives a simple life in the little seaside town of Pearl Bay. Unless it’s tourist season, things tend to be pretty peaceful. There is, however, one never-ending source of irritation in the form of Police Chief Merrick Dawson. Merrick is Kip’s older brother’s BFF, and nothing seems to bring Merrick more joy than nagging Kip about silly things. You’d think a Police Chief would have more important things to do than lecture Kip on parking tickets and picking up pet waste, but somehow Merrick always finds the time. Kip decides to take an art class at the local community college, and he’s annoyed to find Merrick has also enrolled in the course. The instructor takes a shine to Kip, and soon they become friends outside of class. Merrick warns Kip of the dangers of blurring those lines and befriending his teacher, but Kip is flattered by the attention. When his art teacher is found stabbed through the forehead with a palette knife, Kip is determined to figure out who killed his new friend. Merrick naturally thinks Kip getting involved in the investigation is a horrible idea, but when has Kip ever listened to that irksome, pig-headed Merrick Dawson?
This is book one in my brand new Kip O'Connor M/M Cozy Mystery series. Each book has a cozy feel to it and there is a strong romantic (slow burn) story-line in each book. No on page steam but some mild violence. I hope you enjoy reading this series as much as I enjoy writing it.
"Can hardly wait for book 3 (already pre-ordered)! Five stars plus for Merrick and Kip! Read the blurb so you know what to expect; this is not a slow burn that is culminated in one book. Wow, wow, wow! S.C. Wynne has me sooooo hooked on Kip and Merrick! These two have a history borne from growing up in the same small town, little brother and big brother's best friend with all the childhood memories, meddling mothers, and, oh yeah, murders."

It’s a chance to spend some quality time with Royce, and also get a break from Rainy Dale.

It seems there’s a murderer on the loose, and he or she has a very different interpretation of how to bring out the holiday spirit in others.
I assumed the worst I’d have to endure at a boring birthday party was cheap champagne and dull conversation. Murder never crossed my mind. After three months of struggling to fit into the small town of Rainy Dale, Texas, Maxwell Thornton is once again thrown into the middle of a murder investigation. While attending Mayor Penelope Granger’s birthday party, he and Royce are witnesses to the cold-blooded murder of her father. Seeing as he’s sheriff, Royce has no choice but to get involved in solving the murder, but he’d prefer Maxwell stay at a safe distance. Maxwell would prefer that too, but when an attempt is made on his life, he’s unwillingly sucked into the case. When Maxwell moved to Rainy Dale, he’d hoped for a new beginning. But after two attempts on his life, and his unnerving emotional attachment to Royce, more and more Maxwell wonders if staying in Rainy Dale is the logical choice. Perhaps it’s time to run back to Los Angeles, where he can keep his body, and his heart, safe.
Doctor Maxwell Thornton, brilliant ex-surgeon and man most likely to insult you without even trying, seems to have an unwanted penchant for landing in the middle of murder cases. Since moving from the bustling metropolis of LA to a small town in Texas, Maxwell has struggled to fit in with the eccentric citizens of Rainy Dale. He’s made tiny steps forward, but the only person who truly seems to understand him is Sheriff Royce Callum. When one of Maxwell’s new patients ends up poisoned to death, the cold-blooded killer suspects Maxwell knows a lot more than he actually does. Avoiding homicidal maniacs is always prudent, but once they catch your scent, it’s fight or die.
Things are spiraling out of control for our indelicate, but occasionally loveable, Doctor Thornton. His romantic life is already in turmoil, but when someone sets fire to his medical practice his finances are also in jeopardy. Sheriff Royce Callum offers Maxwell a safe place to stay, as he searches for the arsonist. Maxwell can easily rub people the wrong way, which makes it challenging for Royce to figure out if the attack on Maxwell’s business was personal or random. When other fires begin to pop up in Rainy Dale, it becomes obvious there’s a serial arsonist spreading terror through town. Things go from bad to worse when one of the fires turns deadly.

I write a lot of angsty, emotional stories. So every now and then it's really nice to just create a fun, light romance with just a touch of angst. This is the story of a man who is saddled with his sick sister's dog and his five year old nephew, temporarily. When he hires Drew to walk the dog, an unlikely friendship, and then romance blossoms. It brings up the question, can we change if we're with the right people? Or are we forever set in our ways? I think we can change. I guess I'm a romantic optimist. Or perhaps that other side of us was always there, but hidden, until the right person came to us. What do you think?
