Dear Rod and Cane Society member:
With deepest sorrow and regret I must inform you that Rod and Cane President Otis Davenport passed away last night. Mr. Davenport died after suffering a massive heart attack while jogging.
Nonpareil in his leadership of the Rod and Cane Society, Mr. Davenport has held every position on the Board of Governance and served as Rod and Cane’s president for the past eight years. He spearheaded the ongoing move to allow women greater participation in the Society, and led us through the most difficult time in our 70-year history–when we were exposed by the News Sentinel.
A lifelong spanko and proponent of domestic discipline, Mr. Davenport was a firm, but fair disciplinarian, a loving husband, a doting father, and a man I was proud to call my friend. He served in the U.S. Navy, held an MBA from the university, led many successful business ventures, and served on numerous charitable boards.
He is survived by his wife Elizabeth Alexander Davenport and their daughter Chloe. A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Rod and Cane Society mansion. In lieu of flowers, it is requested by Mrs. Davenport that donations be made either to the Society or one of her husband’s charities.
Mr. Davenport’s passing leaves a vacancy on the Board of Goverance. In accordance with the bylaws, I will serve as interim president until a special election can be held to fill the open seat. I will do everything in my power to ensure a smooth transition and carry on Mr. Davenport’s legacy.
Vice president, Rod and Cane Society

And the secret is out. As Rod and Cane spanking romance fans know, the long-awaited fifth book in the series is Liz Davenport’s story. However, it is not Otis’s. Reasonable Doubts (Rod and Cane 5) is set one year after Otis’ death. Liz meets a new man. But can he live up to Otis?
Please join me this week, as I unveil the new Rod and Cane Society series books. The rights to the first ones have reverted to me, and I’ll be re-releasing them later this month with new covers, and a new coordinated look. Each day this week I’ll have a new cover reveal:
- Tuesday – False Pretenses
- Wednesday – Body Politics
- Thursday – Disciplinary Measures
- Friday – Reasonable Doubts!
BTW, there are MORE Rod and Canes to come! Next (I think) will be Jordan Bevy’s story. He was the disciplinary proctor in False Pretenses and oversaw Emma’s spanking. The first book, Unexpected Consequences, is available now and is FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
