I've just added a new suspense thriller, "A Man's Face," that chronicles an attorney's quest to find the man who killed his mother, and whose life spirals out of control when he encounters the treacherous Ibarra family.
"Before the Boy: The Prequel to The Moon Singer Trilogy will answer all the questions that arise in the original 3 books. It's a chilling prequel to the inspiring series, a paranormal delight as the main character tries to escape the afterlife after she learns that she died too soon!

"Alicia and the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13." It is an enchanting tale of friendship, courage, and realizing your star potential through the magic of believing! Mystical illustrations by Vladimir Cebu.
Another book, as Barbara Roman, is "Hubert in Heaven," is a delightful children's story, with a Christmas theme, and a message for all of us who are too attached to our hi-tech "toys."

Since childhood, I've been torn between two worlds: writing and singing. It's difficult to serve "two masters," as they say, but I was compelled to do so. When I was not singing, I was writing; when I was not writing, I was singing. Now I do both. (While still working a day job!).
I've learned, for me, that one creative expression nurtures the other. Much of my writing has a musical theme somewhere in the plot, or is the plot. Whether it's in my non-fiction writing about the power of music itself, in picture books and stories and, of course, in writing music and lyrics for songs.
It is natural, therefore, that my trilogy of adventures for young readers, "The Moon Singer" (formerly "The Secrets of the Moon Singer") has its roots in musical theories and metaphors, entwined with the magic and mystery of metaphysical concepts and matters of ethics, faith, compassion, love, and heroism. Book 1 (The Crystal Clipper) and Book 2 (The War Chamber) lay the groundwork for this power of music of the highest order. Book 3 (The Wind Rose) pulls it all together and will, I hope, give readers a complete understanding of the importance of music in our lives and in the world.
On the other side of the spectrum, "Whatever Became of Sin?" is a departure from a higher consciousness to the mundane world of flawed humans, amoral people committing immoral crimes and eventually paying the price for their transgressions. Penning a thriller sort of grounds me and helps to clear my mind of darker thoughts so I can go back to writing empowering fantasies.
I hope you will delight in their messages just as I was delighted to write them.

A scar from cheek to chin is all Marc Jordan remembers of the man kneeling over his dead mother.
Now, 15 years later, Marc searches his memory for clues; he hopes to be the first to find the killer. Murder, blackmail, corruption and betrayal leave a trail from the storied vineyards of Spain to the wineries of Southern California, where no one is who or what they claim to be.
Forced to accept a court case he does not want, Marc inadvertently unravels the threads that lead to solving his mother’s murder. But with each revelation, his life spirals more and more out of control.
A Man’s Face is a multi-generational saga of treachery and corruption, set against the backdrop of the elite wine industry and courtroom drama.
Billie Nickerson must accept her own mortality as the only way her son will receive the intuitive gifts he was born to inherit, to save her family - and perhaps the world - from a disastrous fate.
But learning that she has died too soon creates a Karmic crisis, as Billie tries to escape the afterlife and return to her loved ones.
In this prequel to The Moon Singer Trilogy (The Crystal Clipper, The War Chamber, The Wind Rose) we learn the uncanny circumstances that that made Billie's son, David, become a seeker of spiritual truth. As his teacher and mentor, she gave him the courage to overcome his unexpected deafness, to excel at music - and to hear the voice within that speaks from his soul.
While Billie’s life is fraught with danger and dark spirits, the story is an illustration of a mother’s love and devotion that transcends the boundaries of the here and the hereafter.
On a flight to Washington D.C., environmental lobbyist Michael Warren’s life begin to unravel.
Michael is on his way to testify before a Senate Committee, and destroy the plans for a housing development built on land tainted with the same toxic waste that killed his six-year-old daughter, Dominique.
But when a stranger hands Michael a cassette on the plane, everything changes. Sidetracked to New Orleans, he learns a disturbing truth and faces the most difficult decision of his life: either expose those responsible, or compromise to save a life.
The unwitting hero and captain of the mystical sailing ship, Moon Singer, has yet to learn that his deafness is his greatest gift. This "disability", along with his possession of three sacred artifacts: The Singer Crystal, The Rose Crystal and The Wind Rose Compass, bestow David the power to save the lives of everyone he loves.
Yet he feels that all the miracles he brought home on the Moon Singer have dissipated. He's just as deaf as before, his sister's paralysis has returned, and his anguish over his mother's death is stronger than ever. At his mother’s grave, David unleashes the power of his crystals and is transported to Coronadus, where he encounters a revered woman who wields the power of life and death, and helps David understand his mission.
When a cataclysmic event occurs, David discovers that the past, present and future know no boundaries in the unending circle of life, and that he must follow his destiny, wherever it may lead.
Desperate to find her, David experiments with sacred crystals and accidentally conjures the supernatural ship, Moon Singer, which transports him through time and space on a magical, fantastic journey.
The people David encounters all have a connection to him, their lives destined to intertwine. Strangely, in this other world, David finds he can hear for the first time in years.
This gift foretells his destiny: to explore the contrast between good and evil - and to save a life that means more to him than his own.
Praise for THE CRYSTAL CLIPPER:
"Roman’s writing is well suited for young readers, but as an adult I found her story truly engaging. Her story is well told, and her keen sense of dialogue and human emotion kept the pages turning." - Sky Rae, Amazon review
"A wonderful story that everyone should read" - Ron Kurz, Amazon review
In this third and final adventure of the Moon Singer trilogy, the prophecy of the Moon Singer is realized. But it all revolves around the answer to one question: Can music actually create and destroy life?
If David Nickerson, whose deafness still eludes treatment, cannot hear it, will he be able to tap into music's power to save the planet from catastrophe? Only if he is able to reunite the three sacred artifacts: the Singer crystal, the Rose Crystal pendant, and the Wind Rose compass. Their Triune energy is critical if David is to re-harmonize the destructive discordant music created by a vengeful music master bent on manipulating weather systems to bring about climate disasters. The mystical clipper ship Moon Singer is David's transport to the Source of his paranormal abilities, but only through his complete understanding of the Power of Three to Become One can he decipher the cryptic musical codes that have been created for evil purposes. In unraveling these codes David will come to know his own soul's song, the one that allows his disability to become his greatest gift.
