Stephen Tillman to Publish Novel

Stephen Tillman, emeritus professor of mathematics, has written a novel, "Leopard's Daughter," to be published by Azure Spider Publications on Sept. 15. It is now available for preorder on Amazon. 

"Leopard’s Daughter" is a markedly original crime novel with elements of the occult. In a world where vampires and werewolves exist, but are extremely rare, Bobby Sandar, his wife, Olivia, and their two oldest children are were-leopards. Bobby and Olivia are Secret Service agents. Following Bobby’s death, Olivia feels the need for a fresh start. She takes a job as a detective in the sheriff’s department of a rural western county. Olivia’s first assignment is to go undercover as an exotic dancer in a nightclub run by gangsters. She has to battle mobbed-up criminals, a terrorist leader who is aware of Olivia’s history and abilities, and human traffickers to save her family and herself.
