Banana Avenue Chronicles

Book One: I Heard There’d Be CAKE (buy me now!!)

Welcome to Dalia: Population 4769.

Nikki Alexandru has no idea how she got to the island, or even what her real name is. All she knows is that she woke up in a strange house and quickly became hunted by someone trying to kill her. Frantic and alone, Nikki quickly bonds with her new cohorts as she tries to unravel the mysteries of who she is and how she wound up in the situation.

As danger arises, Nikki must rely on the aid of a male go-go dancer, two bumbling chefs, a marijuana-smoking surgeon, bickering telemarketers, and a mysterious Luciferian in order to escape her intended fate. As the local hospital begins to fill with victims, Nikki becomes aware that the darkness is centered around her, and she is faced with the decision of either watching her new companions fall victim to a band of assassins or facing evil alone.

Will Nikki be able to uncover the mysteries of her past, or will life on Dalia become just another lost memory?

Book Two: Lettuce Prey (buy me now!!)

It’s been five years since death and destruction were bestowed upon the island of Dalia, and its inhabitants are still struggling to move past their physical and mental scars. The disappearance of Nikki Alexandru has left her husband, Vincent, a shell of his former self, while his sister and brother-in-law struggle to push their partying pasts behind them and behave like the adults and parents they now are.

The Smuskiewiczes’ adoptive teenage son, Matthew, throws a wrench into everyone’s melancholy, forcing his optimism and sensibility on all whom he encounters. But Matt has a few secrets of his own, ones that could lead his family and friends down that same deadly path once more.

What is Matt hiding? And why? Will the trauma of the past be too much for Dalia’s citizens to handle as the anniversary date quickly approaches? And what sort of being is still out for blood, once again raising the stakes and forcing the once party-hardy group to pull out all of their detective stops once more?

October 04th will forever be a dangerous date in Dalia…
