Introducing Mark Herod, author of The S.H.A.D.O.W.’s Of Sedona

“My Author Rep was fantastic. Jerry was so helpful when some problems surfaced concerning my original manuscript. He knew exactly how to correct the issue that originated from my laptop. I’m working on my second book now and I’m sure the process will be much quicker and easier this time around. Jerry educated me on the in’s and out’s throughout the whole process and I consider myself lucky for having him as my Rep. Thank you so much Jerry.”

Mark A. Herod spent time in the USAF at several locations around the world that required a “Top Secret” security clearance. He believes technology will someday provide the opportunity for time travel, forward and backward, to perhaps change history or learn from the future. He and his wife live only hours from Sedona, Arizona, and Mark’s obsession with the American Indian culture, specifically the Navajo tribe and their spiritual beliefs, inspired The S.H.A.D.O.W.s of Sedona, his debut novel.

Book description…

Cole Youngblood is a Navajo tribal member by blood, a park ranger in Sedona, Arizona, by necessity. He is also a renowned tracker and geographical expert in the Four Corners area, making him highly sought after in missing person cases. While on a camping trip with his sister and her friends, Cole rescues a trapped wolf pup, whom he names Shadow, in a deep shaft-leading to his accidental discovery of an underground government facility with a huge secret… The S.H.A.D.O.W. agency has created a way for humans to travel back in time with great precision, stopping heinous crimes before they happen, changing the destiny of certain people who died before their time-and preventing young children from being abducted and disappearing forever. If Cole joins this quest, he will be able to change the past in order to improve the present…and perhaps even rid the world gradually of the ever-present evil that has become all too familiar.

Book description…

No matter how hard she tried, Jenna couldn’t save them all. Jenna was too involved with her clients-had been since day one at the agency. Having walked the horrid path of abuse in her marriage to Tom, it still played on her emotions causing self-doubt. Since her divorce, she vowed to help every abused woman and child she could. Each time Jenna had to attend the funeral of a client she felt like a failure. Refusing to give in to her feelings, she fought hard to start over and put the past behind her, even though she still experienced a silent agony of her own. Jenna had worked side by side with the local DA on many domestic violence cases. And on occasion, she’d had to testify regarding a client causing her life to be put in danger. But if she could save one woman from meeting their demise, it was worth it. Roger Hawthorn had been DA for many years, and hadn’t lost a case thus far. He’d earned the respect and support of fledgling attorneys as well. But a woman he knew had been placed in a penitentiary and held against her will. Not even Roger could get the judge to overturn the sentence. Working with Roger and helping abused clients had pushed Jenna out her comfort zone, making her have compassion for others when she reaches out to offer hope of seeing change. But will it be enough to help Jenna bury the past and finally find the man of her dreams?

Book description…

Austin had never broken a promise to her—except this one. Gazing up at the moon and stars, Alexandra reminisced of times she and Austin had sat in the red swing nestled beneath a fuzzy blanket as the ocean waves crashed ashore. It had been months since she’d received the devastating news that had forever altered the course of her future. Feeling lost on the inside, she managed to move forward with the dream she still carried in her heart. And as much as she wanted to change the outcome of their future, she couldn’t. Her assistant, Jane Hammond, had been an encouraging friend by offering a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on. Carrying a hurt so deep, Jane understood all about love and loss. Hoping for a second chance at love, Jane fought the fear that her intuition may be right about the secret life of the man she loved. But each time doubt rose up, she wouldn’t allow herself to believe the worst. Mike Sutter was well-known as a Master carpenter and he had the portfolio to prove it. He’d restored many a house over the years, and was handy at fixing most things. As good as he was at doing what he loved—it still hadn’t filled the emptiness in his heart. He knew that one woman could possibly make him feel complete. That is, if she’d only give him a chance to love her.
