Tears of Heaven



        —Preditors & Editors Reader’s Poll 




Del is a sarcastic, fast-talking, dangerous, and unpredictable rogue demon hunter.  She and her partner Marrin take their orders directly from the angel Ahadiel.  They obey, or they’ll be destroyed.  It’s not the job Del wants, but it’s the job she has.

Thrilling danger, fast-paced adventure, high-seas action, and heart-warming romance fill this novel with a page-turning story that won't let you put it down.

Hell Becomes Her


Banishing demons is only slightly more daunting than raising a teenager. All things considered, Del has it pretty easy these days. She takes her orders, does her job, and goes home to kiss her daughter Jordan goodnight. But when Jordan is kidnapped, Del learns the world is even more dangerous than she believed.


Lost in the deserts of Northern Nevada, confronted with myths and legends hungry for her blood, Del may have to fight an entire army to get her daughter back.


She’ll pull down the Pillars of Heaven, if that’s what it takes.

When the Archangel Michael himself orders her to account for her actions and face judgement, Del finds herself at a crossroads.


Trapped on an island in the Mediterranean, Del is outgunned, outnumbered, and outmaneuvered. While her shaky alliances are falling apart, old enemies and new traitors appear around every corner. It may take everything Del has to save all she’s worked for—including her own life.


Question of the Day: The Andre Polk Memorial Anthology


In 2017, Andre passed away suddenly, removing his positivity, his curiosity, and his wit from our world forever. The members of Space Opera: Writers group put together an anthology of poems and stories of a decidedly positive spin, shot through with some of Andre’s own Questions. A special thanks to Johnathan Clayborn (Clayborn Press) and Tom Evans (editor), whose pro bono work showed that they have poured their hearts and souls into getting this book published.


From a purely scifi angle, I believe you will enjoy the wonderful talent showcased in this book, but more importantly, all net proceeds from the sales of QUESTION OF THE DAY: THE ANDRE POLK MEMORIAL ANTHOLOGY will be given to his family.
