It’s here – my latest installment in the Norm Strom Crime Series – Trafficking Chen. Tragically, a bit more exciting than the new phone book. Do they even exist anymore?
A young Chinese girl is kidnapped from her home in settlement of her father’s gambling debt. She is forced into slave labor and eventually prostitution. When a new group of Asian dancers lands in a Windsor strip club, Norm Strom joins a task force to investigate.
Trafficking Chen can be purchased locally at Story Tellers in Windsor or River Bookshop in Amherstburg. It is available in paperback or eBook online as of June 1st.

Here’s a tease for what Norm Strom is up to next:
Human Trafficking is an affliction that has infected countries across the world for centuries, and continues to do so today. There are countless numbers of victims.
Trafficking Chen is the heartfelt story of one victim, a young Chinese girl who is taken from her family home to settle an outstanding gambling debt acquired by her father. She is forced into labor and becomes a servant to the rich.
As Chen comes of age, she has to serve in other ways, using her own body to satisfy her master’s sexual appetite. Later, she is prostituted and moved around the country, eventually being shipped overseas to Canada, where she is put to work as an exotic dancer.
Street Crimes Detective Norm Strom mostly investigates property-related crime, but he receives a tip from a confidential informant who says illegal Asian women are dancing at a local strip club. Trying to ignore personal issues, Strom joins a task force to investigate possible human trafficking in his city.
Book stores are struggling to survive, the same as restaurants and other small businesses in our area. Please shop local when you can, and help your neighbors to keep their businesses running during these trying times.
River Bookshop in Amherstburg, Story Tellers, Juniper, and Biblioasis are all local stores who can use your support. All my books are currently for sale at River Bookshop and Story Tellers. They are both currently open for curbside pickup.
I’ve always had an open mind when it comes to things like ancient healing techniques, Deja-vu, mystery sounding structures like the Pyramids, and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
The television series, X-Files, also piqued my interest. Thinking about strange phenomenon depicted on that show, along with my personal experiences at ancient ruin sites, I was inspired to write my own paranormal thriller.
In my book, Four, I blend fact with fiction to give readers pause, and let them wonder if we really are alone in the universe. Here are four reasons I think you should buy my book, ‘Four’:
Four Men The story is about four men from different parts of the world who all experience something unexplainable during their lives, and are then drawn to the Khufu Pyramid in Egypt on the same date. Later, at a reunion of sorts, they try to explain it all to one of their sons, who comes to have his own beliefs.
Interesting Phenomenon Throughout the book, I refer to factual unexplained events that have happened in the past, and continue to occur to this day. There are so many things on our planet that we cannot explain and know nothing about. You just have to look for them.
Extraterrestrial Life Whether you believe it or not, there have been thousands of accounts of UFO sightings around the world for years, and artifacts that have been found on our planet that may prove their existence.
A Christmas Gift What better gift than something that lets an imagination run wild in wonderment, while discovering things in and out of this world that are fun to think about and contemplate.
Check out Four on my website, along with all my other books. They can be ordered online, but if you’re local and would like a copy of one delivered before Christmas, message me here or on one of my social media sites.
