 Tanto 

Mikiko Ohara is shocked and overwhelmed with grief when she learns on her 20th birthday that her maternal grandmother committed suicide. Finding the American serviceman she holds responsible for her grandmother’s death wish becomes Mikiko’s sole mission in life. Tenacious research on her part reveals that the guilty man, her grandfather, is president of Barwick Bank & Trust in La Jolla, California. For seven years she rigorously prepares herself physically and intellectually for her trans-Pacific mission. This is the intriguing story of her revenge… and what happens after 27-year-old Mikiko comes face to face with Lance Barwick. She's made a personal pledge to her deceased grandmother and to herself that absolutely nothing will prevent her from executing her plan, using the same dagger (tanto) her grandmother used to take her life.

 

   WindanSea - Volumes One & Two 
Sexuality in the 21st century is the connecting thematic thread that runs through this two-volume, 880-page novel, yet eroticism is certainly not the core. A spellbinding story is.
Nat Goldman, age 29, drives a limo at an upscale residential hotel in scenic La Jolla, California. Extremely handsome and personable, Nat privately aspires to write a novel that will make the world a better place—and apparently has the brains to do it—but lacks the discipline to start his book and the willpower to refuse sex from lovely, sensual females. This  colorful narrative follows him for several months during his quarterlife crisis beginning in the autumn of 2000. A parallel story covers the romantic relationship between a charming older man with a hidden identity and his gorgeous nurse from Argentina who live in this same hotel. An incident 19 years ago in the personal history of the older man causes the lives of the two male characters to climactically converge in the later chapters, suddenly changing it to a suspenseful thriller.
The WindanSea volumes contain the required features of any great novel. After you've finished the last page of Volume Two, you’ll agree it’s among the best stories you’ve ever read… and one you’ll never forget.



  Coast Walk
Katherine Churchill, a gorgeous, talented and wealthy African-American, has it all… except romantic love. Frank Taylor, charming, intelligent, older—and white—skillfully conceals his background and agenda when he meets Katherine. The reader learns what can happen when the lives of two apparent soul mates intersect on the same path, Coast Walk, which leads to their unavoidable destinies. The two main characters learn that the past has an uncanny way of catching up with them and eating away at their psyches, forcing them to make critical, life-altering decisions. Kat and Frank enjoy what appears to be a unique relationship until the day fate taps them on the shoulder.

The primary setting is La Jolla, California, one of the most scenic spots in the world, with additional chapters taking place in Honolulu and Acapulco. In the virtually irrepressible attraction between Kat and Frank, passion is the common denominator. Kat considers herself a devout Catholic. She just happens to be highly sexed. Frank’s cloaked background has numerous surprises.

  Never - A Spiritual Love Story This story is the first version of another novel by Frederick Regenold entitled Coast Walk. Although each has the same main characters, including the dog, Rocky, the endings are completely different. If you like the people—and Rocky—in this book, and you’re not sexually timid, you might want to check out the other story just for surprises; however, please be advised that the first 12 chapters are basically the same. Never is a touching love story. It’s for readers who believe in love. If they don’t, perhaps after reading it they will. If nothing else, they’ll think twice at the beginning of a romantic involvement.

                                      

     Regina's World
                                           

 

 A voluptuous woman travels around the United States with a scheming male accomplice preying on rich men whose oversized libidos inevitably overwhelm their common sense. While the female engages the targeted men in sexual activities, her accomplice covertly tapes their phone conversations and photographs them in compromising situations. Blackmail is their objective of course, and this clever couple has been extremely successful at it. Employing her conspicuous physical attributes and disarming personality, the female hits on their next chosen "target"--a wealthy inventor who lives in a condo along the coast of scenic La Jolla, California. From all appearances, their usual modus operandi is serving their devious purpose flawlessly, until unexpected issues crop up. Their latest "target" is different in many respects from their previous conquests. For openers, he has a handsome millionaire son, owner of a local video game company. And then the "target's" billionaire business acquaintance, who lives in Singapore, invites them to be his houseguests in Honolulu--one of the many locations throughout the world where he owns impressive homes. This short, easy-to-read tale, taking place over a time frame of several weeks, will grab and hold your interest from start to finish. And the ending will definitely surprise you… unless you become so intimately acquainted with Regina that you enter her world. Then all things are possible.

    One Plus Seven 
One Plus Seven

After marrying a virtual stranger, but one who had the bucks and promised her a world of comfort, Kendra Smithton Hatley returns to La Jolla and phones an old flame, Brock Ainslie. He's an unsuccessful novelist who lives in a house his deceased father left him. Up front, Kendra informs Brock she murdered her husband two nights ago in Memphis, leaving his body on the recliner where she poisoned him with an overdose of Xarelto. Brock mini-panics at the thought of being an accomplice, but vividly remembering Kendra as his favorite lover, he agrees to at least listen to her story. The reader does also, and learns the contents of "A Note From La Jolla," which is a novella. There are seven short stories with different subjects that follow.

***All of these novels are available in paperback at Amazon.com.

*** Some readers may be interested in the problems a writer has in attracting a literary agent. The short story, Two Words (below), hits upon that subject in a scene that would make a dynamic one-act play. It's available as a Kindle eBook and is also one of the seven short stories in One Plus Seven.
                                                                                                 

 

  Two Words ( a short story )

Two male acquaintances whose wives know each other meet at one of the homes. The wealthy attorney is the host, and he tells the other man, who is an unsuccessful writer of fiction, that he has a surprise for him. They both have ulterior motives. The meeting and the story are both short: 5,750 words. Most of the talk is about the writer’s failure to interest any literary agent in reading his work, then near the end, matters get uncomfortably personal and both men learn some unexpected details about themselves, each other, their wives, and the difference between the words “realistic” and “reality.” The reader also learns the difference between a “yogi” and a “yogini,” and if you don’t know, it’s worth the cost of this story and your fifteen minutes to read it.
