One Michael J Wagner wrote an abuse survival book called Shane (June 24, 2013). As the many reviews suggest, this book is a complete rip of JP Barnaby's book called Aaron (October 8, 2012).
But wait, there is a whole new level of scumminess at work here. The plagiarizing "author" also started a crowd souring plea for $15,000 to go to trade shows and book fairs.
I ran a check on Wagners other book "Jilted" and it matches Dream of Me by Fern Michaels.
Others have already identified the "The Telling" as a book by the very same title by Eden Winters.
I found a match between "Steel Oil" and "The Texas! Trilogy" by Sandra Brown.
I wonder why plagiarists activate the Amazon "Look Inside" feature. It makes this very easy to unravel.
Please note there is a different Michael J Wagner who writes non-fiction. He is not involved in this.
