Lexy Cooper is a Community Manager at Xenon Corporation, maker of the Xenon24/7 videogame console and Xenonline gaming service. When a young woman’s nude body is discovered on the Xenon corporate campus, Lexy’s uncle, homicide detective Mike Malick, catches the case. As Malick investigates the crime, Lexy works the case from inside Xenon and discovers more about the seedy underbelly of the games industry than she ever wanted to know.
“Filled with great characters, and a twisty-turney perfect murder mystery plot.”
“Witty, empowering, and deeper than you think.”
“Lexy is a character I find myself thinking about even weeks after finishing the novel.”
“A captivating thriller that introduces you to the inside of a big company that sells widely-loved entertainment products.”
“An awesome mix of humor, action, sex and more.”
Just weeks after the events in Schooled, Lexy Cooper discovers the body of Declan Brown, Director of Developer Relations for Xenon Corporation. Who killed Dec? His drug-addicted brother? His favorite stripper? His professional rival Nate Howard? Or someone else entirely? Ride along with Lexy and Detective Mike Malick as they investigate the crime.
“Pwned was a fantastic read and the perfect follow up to Schooled. Lexy finds herself in yet another ride showcasing murder, mystery, and a bit of naughtiness.”
“The introduction of strippers, the particularly creative uses of swear words, Lexy’s fun and inspired wardrobe choices, guns, and many other things will pique your interest and keeping you reading, most likely without sleep…”
“Really enjoyable novel, interesting new characters, great development of the recurring ones.”
“When it comes to mysteries, I can usually figure out who, what, when and why early in a book, but with these, they keep me guessing until the very end.”
It’s holiday party time at Xenon! Every year the video game console maker outdoes itself in splendor and debauchery. This year security is extra tight because the next-gen prototype is on display. What happens when it goes missing? Moonlighting detective Mike Malick puts the party on lockdown. While Mike and Xenon security search for the missing hardware, Lexy gets in a cat fight with one arch enemy, sings Christmas carols with another, and gets really dirty–with Santa and without.
A Lexy Cooper short story that takes place between the end of Pwned and the beginning of Griefed.
“I was smiling and giggling from the start of the book all the way to the last sentence.”
“Another fun and unknowingly insightful Xenon adventure.”
“From the first paragraph to the last, Lexy’s Christmas escapades will keep you laughing, shaking your head, and saying, ‘oh, my!'”
“Readers are in for a great time whenever Lexy is involved.”
Haters gonna hate. That’s what Lexy Cooper, Xenon Community Manager, tells herself when a hacker friend sends her a link to IHateLexyXenon.com, a site dedicated to unflattering Lexy stories, pics, and video stills. But when photos taken from inside Xenon headquarters begin appearing on the site, it’s clear that someone is keeping an eye on Lexy—someone with a grudge.
Meanwhile, Detective Mike Malick works a suicide case with more questions than answers. Why did Fletcher Gray hang himself in the garage of his upscale Gunshy Ridge home, and why did he seemingly set up a neighbor to find him a few hours later? What does the beautiful widow know that she’s not telling? And will Malick’s career survive the outcome?
Griefed follows Lexy and Malick from Redmond, Washington to Roswell, New Mexico as they unravel their latest mystery—or mysteries—and discover more answers than either of them bargained for.
“…easily my favorite in the series so far.”
“…a couple twists that are nearly Game of Thrones caliber.”
“I finally finished Griefed at 5am because I couldn’t put it down”
“I swear that the twist in this one almost killed me!”

From the Foreword:
“She might wear pigtails and short skirts, and she may casually use words like “noob” and “pwn,” but she’s cut from the same cloth as any flawed noir hero. She shares as much in common with Sam Spade as she does with Nancy Drew.”
When the creator of a controversial web series is murdered in a shockingly gruesome way at a fan convention in Seattle, Lexy’s friend Harper Cole is suspected of the crime. Can Lexy clear her friend’s name while juggling her job, personal life, and a horrible new roommate?
