Free: Heart and Soul

The completed Heart and Soul series is a tribute to lost souls who stumble from the shadows of who they were, and into the light of who they were meant to be.

After a tragic wreck claims Elaine Pearson’s family, she embarks on a solo hiking trek into the Blue Ridge Mountains. She only wants to escape her blighted past and the pain of her broken heart. But through a chance encounter with a protective, mysterious stranger, she is thrust into a world where dark creatures that haunted her childhood nightmares are now stalking her from the shadows…and trailing her up a mountain.

During a summer sabbatical, Duke University geneticist, Dr. Ian Kearney, finds Elaine stumbling along the Bartram Trail alone. His slumbering hybrid vampire/lycan soul slowly begins to awaken, and he is unable to resist or deny the persistent soul stirrings that leave him craving a mate. His forgotten human self, however, is also awakening…and the man within wants everything he knows he shouldn’t–her.

The first book in the series, Solace From Shadows, introduces Elaine, a young widow trying to make amends with her painful past; and Ian, a uniquely created hybrid who is searching for more than the hollow existence he’s carved out among humans. Their struggle to find peace, while coping with a resurrecting past, becomes a test of determination and fortitude when letting go is impossible.

R. W. Patterson recognizes the Heart and Soul series is recommended for Adult Audiences as they contain mature scenes and violence. Each book is not intended as a stand-alone novel. Free on Kindle.

Dude, where’s my walking stick?

After my life was suddenly flipped and turned upside down, I decided to take a long walk across New Zealand’s South Island to clear my mind and heal my soul.

From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, I survived 69 days of wet feet, sore muscles and far too much muesli. This is my journey…$2.99 on Kindle.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver's Paradise as a Father

When a midlife surprise upends his plans, will his dreams of exploration end…or begin anew?

Andrew Jalbert has always been an adventurer at heart. Drawn to the breathtaking island of Bonaire in his twenties, he transformed a passion for diving and natural beauty into a career as a writer and underwater photographer. But with goals to retire to the Caribbean paradise, he was unexpectedly gifted with fatherhood at age forty-three and the challenge of merging two seemingly incompatible lives.

Determined to pass on his appreciation for the dazzling theater of the sunshine and the artistry of undersea landscapes, Andrew annually took his son to the place he so loved. And over the course of their week-long excursion when the boy was five, the doting dad found the isle’s magic renewed by an insatiably curious child.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is the compelling story of a man who thought he’d enjoyed all of life’s pleasures only to find them enriched by parenthood. Told in lyrical prose, Andrew recounts both his early days exploring the island’s treasures and the wonders of his kindergartner’s fascination. Along the way, he relates the history and culture of Bonaire’s people, illuminates the critical need for conservation, and realizes life seen through the eyes of the young is among the greatest visions imaginable.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is an expertly woven travel memoir. If you like evocative descriptions, wisdom conveyed with humor, and educational asides, then you’ll adore Andrew Jalbert’s introduction to the tropics.

King Genghis I
King Genghis I is a satirical adventure novel that blends timely realism and political fantasy.

Turan Mugayev, the protagonist of the book, is a New Yorker who travels from the heart of Western civilization to Genghistan, a small, hermetic Asian kingdom, ruled firmly but kindly by an affable, self-appointed benevolent dictator, who like other compassionate dictators is concerned principally with the well-being of his people.

The bond between the two men upsets the kingdom’s conventional wisdom, alters fates, and changes Turan from a broken-hearted and gloomy young man to a love-struck hero. Because, apparently, there’s nothing like the confines of a spunky little dictatorship to spark a new love. Free on Kindle.
