Sabalah names the child Marrah. This child will save the Goddess-worshiping people of Europe from nomad invaders called Beastmen, but only if her mother can keep her alive long enough to grow up. Warned in a vision of the coming invasion, Sabalah flees west with Arash to save her baby daughter, only to discover that she is running into the arms of her worst enemies. In the dark forests of northern Europe, other human-like species left over from the Ice Age still exist.

The Stand In (written under Mary Mackey’s pen name “Kate Clemens”)
Sweet Revenge (written under Mary Mackey’s pen name “Kate Clemens”)
Written in the “first person insane,” McCarthy’s List is zany, hilarious, irreverent contemplation of the madness of American culture. Rinda Sue McCarthy, born at the precise moment the atomic bomb burst over Hiroshima, sits in a Mexican jail awaiting execution by firing squad. As the Mexican soldiers practice their marksmanship outside her cell, she writes her confession: a tale of the crimes committed against her by the leaders of a Conspiracy She Is Not At Liberty To Name, and her murderous, but utterly apt revenge. Who are They? Old boyfriends, professors, doctors, her former husband–all of whom have sexually abused her, intellectually trivialized her, performed unnecessary operations on her, and committed her to a mental hospital against her will, not to mention condemned her to death. Is Rinda Sue a paranoid schizophrenic driven mad by growing up in Indianapolis in an era when Joe McCarthy (no relation) was frightening America with his vision of a great, secret communist conspiracy? Or is her behavior the only sane response to an insane world? Either way, Mackey has written a brilliant, dark comedy, witty, misanthropic, and entirely hilarious. More . . .
A spoiled movie star and an underpaid grocery store check-out clerk trade lives with hilarious consequences. Based on Mark Twain’s “The Prince and the Pauper”, this novel is a comic look at the Hollywood Pecking Order. Written under Mackey’s pen name Kate Clemens. More . . .
In this delightfully wicked, deliciously funny romantic comedy, Kate Clemens introduces the unconventional Nora Wynn, a woman who finds herself in the revenge-consulting business – and business is booming. But revenge isn’t so sweet when someone turns the tables on Nora herself . . . and this time, love may find a way to set things right. More . . .
