What happens when a know it all reporter meets an overworked detective – you get UnAuthorized.

Rachel Murphy is used to getting threats. It came with the job of being one of the top investigative reporters in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Michael Henderson has received many accolades as a detective with the Dallas Police Department. He is known for investigating a case with the tenacity of a hungry lion in search of his prey.

Detective Henderson’s investigation into a brutal murder leads him to Rachel Murphy’s doorstep. Their personalities immediately clash. Rachel sees Michael as an obnoxious and overbearing cop. Michael sees Rachel as a meddlesome overeager reporter. In order to solve the case, they must push their personal feelings to the side and work together.

Danger and suspense draws these two unlikely people together in more ways than one.

UnAuthorized is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


“UnAuthorized by National Bestselling Author Shelia Goss and fiction crime writer, John Wooden, is an eventful work of cat and mouse. The authors do a great job in keeping the mystery and intrigue alive from start to finish. UnAuthorized is engaging and a great ‘whodunit’ tale of love, deceit and murder. Ms. Goss and Mr. Wooden gelled their talents well in this must read thriller.” ~Yolanda M. Johnson-Bryant, Literary Wonders! and Author of Circumstances and Revelations
