“Greyhound Lady Walking” coming to Amazon Kindle by the End of July (Synopsis/prologue)

As the greyhound racer is condemed to servitude and death, so it relates to the prisoner or domestic violence victim condemned as "Dead Man Walking"GREYHOUND LADY WALKING

Sam Huston: in charge, formidable, ex-military police, champion of women, and very beautiful. Yes, Sam is a woman. The two Marrs brothers: her new landlords, each a rich and eligible bachelor in his own right. They are impacted by her breath-taking, if unorthodox introduction into their lives, creating division and competition. 21st century ‘Men of Oklahoma’, they are quickly thrust into a reality check about their views of women; and in particular, about Sam. Jet-setter Dalton and grounded mogul Matt, square off about her lease of their one hundred acre ranch to use as  Greyhound Rescue and Adoption services for retired racers.

Mysterious happenings reveal there is an underground transport system being operated at the ranch. Sam’s staff, all women, defy explanation. Drug smugglers? Meth cookers? Lesbians?

The key to the puzzle is found in the greyhounds as a mystical foreshadowing appears, answering the question of whose destiny is completed with Sam Huston.

Prepare to bond with the women of the “Greyhound Ranch” who will create in you a new “gender bias” as they exhibit the true strength and dignity of women saving and successfully changing victims to more than survivors: to victors; as the women take charge of transforming their lives.

If you are a woman, you will never “settle” again.

If you are a man, you will cheer as you finish the book and go on to find or appreciate your own Sam Huston.



When the sparks fly at the first meeting of two people, and the gauntlet is thrown in sincere challenge, look for the universe to take perverse delight in the path upon which the two embark. Unexplained, mystical, foreshadowing is woven into the fabric of the life tapestry of two very modern and independent people.  Before now, they had no conscious involvement with ‘fate and predetermination of soul mates’. The greyhounds will change everything.


About joycegodwingrubbs2

Some call me retired: I am RE-FIRED. I have written 15 books, plus 3 written as a "ghost writer". I no longer offer the novels as printed books, having them only available as Kindle Ebooks since my retirement as a novelist. Twelve books are on Amazon.com Kindle eBooks: collectively they are known as The Greyhound Lady Walking suspense series.They are real cases fictionalized into suspense stories to protect identities..( no victim/survivor names were compromised, and workers and locations were protected.) I also co-authored a non-fiction book: Footsteps Out of Darkness: The Annabelle Kindig Story . It is available on Amazon under the name of Annabelle Kindig. I have traveled, written from the heart, and found an audience that appreciates my "platform". The catalyst to writing the novels was the realization that if I died, I would take all my amazing experiences in these real cases with me; and believe me few have lived 5 lives in one. It would "silence the voices" of the victim/survivors whose triumphs are written into these novels. The suspense series was written in part with the collaboration of police woman and sex crime expert Trula Ann Godwin. In addition to the novels, I have written as a ghost writer for a World War II veteran who fought in the South Pacific aboard the USS Maryland in all the major battles. I have also written a non-fiction book recording oral history stories of my family members beginning with the 1930's to present. There are sixty-six "legacy" stories with pictures. It was recently published as a private printing for family and close associates only. I am a published photo journalist having won the 2009 Editor's Choice Award for internet freelance news articles and pictures of the Cedar Rapid's Iowa flood victim accounts and their personal struggles.. My husband and I are in our 52nd year together (only one blip on the marital radar together), and we have adopted three greyhounds; Dex, Big Buddy and Baby Doll. These were the inspirations in the Greyhound Lady Walking suspense series We have eleven grandchildren, 7 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. My three children live in Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio.
