R.G. Westerman

Story telling is an art as old as humankind. RG

Whether it is to pass along some great historical event, deep philosophical truth or simply a fun jaunt to pass the time, people need their stories. Perhaps once the art was passed from one generation to another around campfires or whispered at bedtimes. In today’s world, stories can take a more fantastical shape on twenty-foot movie screens or generate loyal followers who return to the tale every week as it plays out on their televisions. There is no wrong way to impart the message.

My stories are told in the written word.

In the tradition of Bradbury, Vonnegut, Gibson, King, Gaiman, Pratchett, Le Guin, and so much more I seek to find a way to tell my story. And in doing so perhaps inspire others to tell their own.

Thoughts about the book:

If a millionaire told you that he found success after being hit by a train, going to prison, dealing drugs and forgetting friends… would you follow his footsteps?

DRUG OF CHOICE: The Inspiring True Story Of The One-Armed Criminal Who Mastered Love And Made Millions.

Over the past year, Mark has written a book about his journey from a bad childhood in which he lost my arm at age 5, until being a millionaire through internet marketing campaigns.

In between he has been to prison, addicted to drugs, a professional dating coach, and much more.

He’s done his best to tell his story as honest as possible, even if it meant telling things he did not want anyone to know. It’s an honest book, with what I believe are valuable lessons that can be used in life, dating, and business.

Release Day Blitz! Sentinel’s Kiss by Jamie K. Schmidt


A fiercely protective bad boy. An innocent reporter in serious trouble. They shouldn’t work, but after he throws her onto his bike, there’s no going back.

If Josh Lehman learned one thing as a Green Beret, it’s patience. Josh founded the Sentinels of Babylon because he was sick and tired of watching scumbags cheat the system—scumbags like the man who murdered his sister. Of course, if Josh’s sniper rifle was linked to the death of his ex-brother-in-law, that might be a problem. The bigger problem is the nosy reporter who’s this close to exposing the club. Josh has to find a way to keep her hot mouth from talking . . . but he’ll be damned if he lets someone take her from him. Not on his watch.

Ashley Carver thought she’d do anything for a scoop. That was before her latest story leads to multiple attempts on her life. Ashley’s been investigating a homicide that has gone unsolved for five years when she uncovers evidence tying the vigilantes of the Sentinels of Babylon to a revenge killing. Now she’s in their crosshairs. But after Josh defies all notions of club loyalty to come to Ashley’s aid, soon they’re burning up the sheets—and taking on the world.

Available now at your favorite retailer

5-StarReviewThank you to Random House for the ARC. This story starts off with a bang — literally. Fast paced and super sexy, it doesn’t let up until the very end. Josh and Ashley have a lot of baggage. Josh, a former soldier, can’t seem to forgive himself for not saving his sister and Ashley suffered a terrible loss while she was in high school.

These damaged souls connected on the physical level first, but their eventual trust and love emerges in a race against a serial killer. Exciting, fun, read. More please!

Double Helix: Tempest by R. Patricia Wayne


The adventure begins in the year 2256.

Mars has been terraformed into a tropical paradise where there is peace, beauty, and the colonists have finally completed their first interstellar spaceship. Although life is good, a genetic bottleneck and genetic mutations have plagued the Mars colonists for more than two hundred years, leaving the population with 95% female inhabitants and men who are born sterile.

Chancellor Janna sends her only daughter Aura, a fifteen-year-old schizophrenic and next in line to be Chancellor, to planet Earth in hopes of finding human survivors to cure their genetic crisis. Little does the Chancellor know, there are others that likes things the way they are.

While Aura is forced to fight to survive on a frozen, post-apocalyptic Earth, others are fighting to keep Mars from slipping into tyranny. And in the process, a temporal vortex is birthed. This vortex, the Tempest, will forever change the past, present, and future, and put the fate of the entire galaxy in jeopardy. The fall of humanity is at hand.

The sometimes strange, sometimes humorous, sometimes dark and disturbing world of Double Helix is a character-rich, science fiction, epic adventure.
