In my upcoming release entitled, Missing the Moment, Shelly Stavins, recent divorcee, is bitter and vindictive and only has one future moment on her mind. Revenge.
One bright sunny Friday morning, her attorney husband of ten years pecks her on the cheek, pats her son on the head and leaves for his office. Or so she thinks. Before noon, she answers her door to a smug, navy suit, red tie wearing process server who hands over her official divorce papers. The promised settlement is one no woman in her right mind could refuse. Why fight? Why bother?
Tired of all the speculation and gossip of the husbands' wives' club and bored with a life that no longer resembles the fantasy life style she had grown accustomed to, Shelly opts to move on. Settling in for the long haul, she invests the profit from the sale of her house into a new business and newly built property on the outskirts of Chandlerville, Kentucky.
Running a quaint but charming book store and being a full time single mother does little to soften her heart. But a softened heart is not her goal because 'Shelly's Revenge' is the name of the game.
Player #1: Handsome bestselling author Justin Ray, Chandlerville's author in residence for the summer. Shelly rejects him and his offered partnership until she learns that Justin's publishing company is represented by none other than her arrogant ex-husband.
Player #2: Local cop, Carlos Nunes, Chandlerville's hero, the Mayor's best friend and Shelly's obnoxious unofficial body guard. Shelly detests him and his white knight in shining armor come on or does she?
Player #3: A woman with a broken heart.
Winner takes all.

Chandlerville, Kentucky's plans for its annual Kentucky Derby celebration come to a grinding halt when newspaper editor, Rachel Blakely, discovers the scoop of a lifetime. She learns that her best friend’s husband, Mayor Fitz Manning, is at the center of an illegal land investment operation. Rachel’s journalistic spirit sags as she wrestles with the win-lose decision of blowing the whistle on the mayor. Her plan to confront the Mannings comes to a grinding halt when a local detective appears unannounced at her office with evidence suggesting town businesses are under attack by outside forces.
Seductively mysterious farm investor, Jairo Aquino, offers to apply his unorthodox skills to help Rachel discover what's what and who's who. The partnership is one that Rachel is petrified to accept yet afraid to refuse.
But can she trust him? Does he possess the answer key? Or just the key to her heart?
Missing Home is my second book in the Chandler County Multi-Author Romantic Suspense Series. PURCHASE HERE
A 21st century battle between good and evil.
When Dr. Jared Johnson's research project collapses, so does he. He tosses the funding rejection letter in his office wastebasket and his plans to marry the love of his life out the window.
The last thing he wants to do is return to his home town, Chandlerville, Kentucky. An unexpected call from his grandmother, a lifelong resident of the small town, convinces him that all things indeed happen for a reason and perhaps this is the right time to reestablish his roots and start anew.
When he arrives--single, with no intent to marry, he's shocked to learn that the town has unanimously approved his pastoral appointment to the newly refurbished 100-year-old Baptist church. Despite his divinity training, Jared never intended to pastor a church—not when his specialty is psychological profiling.
As fate would have it, the evil spirits that begin to permeate the town and its good-hearted citizens shortly after his arrival challenge his technical skills, experience and community relationships. To complicate matters, a local angel finds herself in the eye of the storm causing Jared to re-evaluate his past and question his future.
