Some Adventures Leave You Questioning, “How Did I Get Here?”
What do you get when you mix a 1920’s cult, a couple of interior designers, the Pacific Northwest, a small fortune in gold, and a Kodiak bear?
You get this clever and adventurous “what if” story weaving real-life historical characters with the imagination of Ted Mulcahay–Bearied Treasure.
Are you struggling in life? Maybe you have an addiction or you’re in a bad marriage. Perhaps you simply need a new beginning…
Brother XII is waiting for you on DeCourcy Island, just off the coast of British Columbia where he is the remnant of a cult that resided on the island in the 1920s. There he is recreating the idyllic setting his grandfather started with the Aquarian Foundation.
But rumors abound about a stash of gold hidden somewhere on the island from the commune’s founding days.
And with those rumors come scammers in search of the treasure.
Join interior design husband and wife Kevin and Jenne O’Malley, along with commune members and con men as they search for hidden fortune in an otherwise unassuming Pacific NorthWest refuge.
This tongue-in-cheek tale of fiction is based loosely on real people and places.
Will the con artists make off with the gold?
Will the O’Malleys be able to help stop them?
What will become of Brother XII and the other members of the cult?
What’s the deal with the bear?

Jewel thieves, hero dogs, white separatists and interior designers make for a tongue in cheek tale of murder and mayhem among the members of a not so exclusive country club.
The story, sarcastic and irreverent at times, revolves around interior designers Kevin and Jenne O’Malley who seem to have a knack for attracting trouble. In this light-hearted parody of the membership of a private golf club, located in Bellevue, Washington, they stumble upon a gruesome murder. The incident is only the beginning of a seemingly unrelated sequence of events so heinous that it eventually attracts national attention.

The O’Malleys are doing what? How is it possible that dangerous complications arise from their simple vacation in wine country? With their recent move to South Whidbey Island, only the O’Malley’s would stumble upon drug smugglers, embezzlers, and murderers amongst the locals. The quirky, pastoral island, reachable by a less than speedy ferry from Mukilteo or the narrow, deteriorating Deception Pass bridge, is no match for the wicked men about to visit.
A notorious drug lord and a nondescript enforcer with freakish hell-raising skills invade the peaceful Pacific Northwest island—where not even the friendly locales and free-roaming long-eared rabbits can soften his homicidal heart.
Weeding through the facts and surprisingly connected characters with their trusted friend, Bellevue Detective Bill Owens, the narrative swirls from Mexico to Canada and throughout Puget Sound. It’s a heart-racing and outrageously offbeat adventure for two innocent people, proving once again that trouble will find the O’Malleys without the slightest amount of effort on their part.

Juiced is a fun, thrilling adventure involving secret, breakthrough research.
An invention that can save the planet?
Somehow, someway the O’Malleys have found themselves in the thick of things once again. On peaceful, bucolic Whidbey Island, they become entangled in a corporate plot to stifle a paradigm-shattering discovery, one that promises to upend conventional thinking, topple markets, and create an entirely new industry.
Kevin and Jenne, along with scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, find themselves pitted against a band of bumbling criminals who will stop at nothing to get what they want—including arson and murder.
It’s another rollicking adventure for the retired interior designers ably assisted by their favorite detective, the FBI, and Emma, their ever-vigilant German Shepherd Dog.
