Steel Journeys (November 2019)
Join Abby Steel on a series of breathtaking international adventures with Steel Journeys – an all-female motorcycle touring company where she calls all the shots. From huts to hotels, it’s never the same adventure twice.
Book 1: The Road To Patagonia
To some people, home might be wherever you lay your helmet, but for Abby Steel, home was wherever she laid her ass. Today it’s a Harley. Tomorrow it might be a BMW or a Triumph or a Honda. Home was whatever bike fit the terrain. Home was wide open spaces tucked under an expansive sky.
Home was the road.
It took a lot of miles to work through the hurts of her past, but she’s finally built a business she can be proud of. Women from all walks of life come to join in her adventures, for all sorts of reasons. Equal parts badass and life coach, Abby genuinely cares about the women on her tours, and they respect her for it.
The Road to Patagonia finds Abby back home in California on a break between trips, when an unexpected visitor threatens to bring all the blocks tumbling down.
She was the girl of his dreams.
It was a chance meeting, but Finn knew her at a glance. The likeness was unmistakable. Even her smell was familiar.
The problem was, Truly wasn’t looking for love.
When Truly loved someone, it was a death sentence—and she wasn’t going to have that on her conscience. Not again. Love and death were partners in crime, and she couldn’t risk doing any more time.
Finn wasn’t willing to give up. He’d cheated death twice in Afghanistan. Three times if you count nearly drowning in whiskey and painkillers. He’d been through scores of women but had loved only once—until now.
His dreams didn’t lie: this girl was his destiny. He needed to woo her. He needed to win her heart—if he could just manage to stay alive.
She wasn’t looking for a knight in shining armor.
He wasn’t looking for a beauty to rescue.
But one fateful night changed all that. For both of them.
Finn Again is a refreshingly honest, deeply moving tale of one man’s journey down a path he never intended, searching for a life he never knew he wanted.
Finn McCarthy is half Irish, half English, and fully fantastic.
Raised in the pubs and educated at Oxford, he never did know which half to favor. His Irish half loves women and booze, while his English half is wicked smart and damned polite. And then there’s Regan, the one girl who never did succumb to his charms.
When a world at war beckons, Finn answers the call, but there are some casualties even a soldier can’t prepare for. To heal his wounds he must banish his demons, a journey that leads him to a sleepy fishing village where the mysteries of his celtic roots take hold. He begins to accept his past, only to discover that his greatest battle might take everything he’s got left.
War…Does things to a man. But Finn isn’t just any man.

From the back cover:
Still reeling from the suicide of his best friend Tess, seventeen-year old Brendan struggles to overcome addiction and identity issues. Walking the ledge outside his Manhattan apartment has become its own sort of drug, as he stands night after night with his arms outstretched, ready to fly away.
Sarah can see him from her window, and begins journaling about a boy on a ledge. Paige and Nate, a young couple in another building, can see both teens from their fire escape.
None of them know the others are watching, but a strong desire for freedom resides in each of them, and as their lives begin to intertwine, that desire will be tested.
Three buildings. One city block. Three stories. One common thread.
