Diner Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is the first book in the Diner Short Story Mysteries series. These short stories are about 15-20 pages each and feature authentic diners around Massachusetts. Author Lisa Shea goes to each diner personally to write up its sights, sounds, and aromas. That way you, the reader, can take a virtual vacation to these historic locations! Visit Lisa’s webpages to see photos and write-ups of the diners. All of the Diner Mystery series contain no violence, no swearing, and no intimacy, so they are suitable for teens and up.

You can read the books one-by-one as they are released, or you can wait for the boxed sets to be published once the series gets enough books in it. It’s your choice! I try to write them right after I visit, so that’s why there are sometimes gaps in the release schedule. It’s not always easy to get to a diner when they’re open!

A portion of all proceeds benefits battered women’s shelters.

Narrowly escaping death, Anissa restarts her devastated life as a college student in New York City. She is bewildered and lost, but hopeful for a better life in a new land.

Anissa is soon drawn to two powerful individuals: Michael Kassab, the Syrian-American leader working to found the first Mideast Christian state, and Julien Morales, her Columbia University professor who runs a $20 billion hedge fund.

Complicating matters, Michael is still attached to his ex-girlfriend and Julien is the most sought after bachelor in Manhattan (and has hidden demons that even his therapist can’t extract). Anissa’s heart and her communal ties pull her in different directions, as she seeks hope and renewal in a dark world.

Anissa of Syria might be compared to The Kite Runner, Exodus, and The Diary of Anne Frank.

Praise for Dreams and Shadows

“Oh wow! This book was utterly fantastic. It’s a fantasy book, with just a touch of fantasy and a lot of intrigue. It sucked me in and compelled me to finish it in the same day!”–Cora B
“If Narnia and the Da Vinci code had a baby this is how I’d imagine it. Great writing that made you stop to think but not too often to disrupt your enjoyment”–Alice
“This story reads like a sailing on the sea–at times calm and at other times swelling large and dangerous. It is a fantasy solidly written and wonderfully told.”–D.J.A.

He thought he’d be safe in a magical world.

He was wrong.

With little to live for, 18-year-old Michael is only too eager to enter a world where magic is common and where wonders are created with little more than thoughts.

But it’s not home he finds there. Deadly beasts and hidden evils lurk around every corner, and they’re hunting him.

And it’s not just the monsters who want him.

Dragged from one people to another, Michael must discover the truth amongst lies if he is to escape a tyrannical leader who is after his very soul.

Alone, wounded, and lost, he finally must make the biggest decision of his life: to allow himself to die, or to live.

To prevent a genocide.

To save the woman he loves.

And most dangerously, to discover the truth of who he really is.

Dreams and Shadows is the first book in the fantasy series, The Aylosian Chronicles. If you enjoy plot twists and turns, wisdom literature to make you ponder, and stories both tragic and triumphant, this novel by Jeffrey Collyer will linger in your mind long after you have finished reading.

Get Dreams and Shadows and join Michael on his quest for answers today.

He cannot afford to come under the close scrutiny of the law. He just may have to perpetrate the greatest, and most challenging con of his life, but is he up to it?

To pull off the most daring stunt of his life, Jonathan will not only have to convince Arthur’s friends, the police, and the public, but- worst of all- the beautiful Angela Milford by his monumental deception.

With the murderer still lurking in the shadows, he may not just be risking his own life, but also that of the woman who has captured his heart.
