A 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-finalist! Emancipating Alice
Now that her husband, George, is dead, middle-aged homemaker Alice Owens thinks his oppressive reign over her life has ended–but she is wrong. George thwarts her attempts at freedom, mentally and physically, from beyond the grave.
* * *
Homemaker Alice Owens returns from a routine grocery-shopping trip to find her husband, George, slumped over their kitchen table, as dead as her love for him. Glad her strangled life with him has ended, she prepares for the arrival of her adult children–a daughter who hates her, and a needy son–who will inevitably show up for the funeral. But while cleaning out George’s belongings, Alice stumbles across enigmatic documents linking him to an African-American charity, and a heinous crime committed over thirty years prior.
Alice grapples not only with memories of her marriage’s turbulent past, but with murder and infidelity from George’s secret double life pushing themselves into her present.
Will Alice finally gain the freedom she’s always desired? Or will George’s secrets take her over the edge?

Now, two gorgeous prizes are on the line, and it seems he can’t win one without losing the other. If he drops everything and goes after Erica, he loses the game.

Kimberly Jordan never meant to hurt anyone.
But once a DNA test reveals her long-time boyfriend, Damien, is her half-brother, plus she finds out she’s pregnant, she will go to any length to hide her horrible secret. Unfortunately for Kent Davenport, he’s the perfect fall guy for her plan having recently revealed his love for her. But unfortunately for Kimberly, dirty little secrets always come out.
A Tangled Web is the first book in the Dangerous Secrets series: a series of unrelated stories in which one or more of the main characters has a secret so big, it can derail or even destroy their most important relationships, their personal character, or their entire lives.
The secrets are ‘dirty.’ Scandalous. Taboo.
Secrets anyone would be wise to remain tight-lipped on.
But in these tales, one way or another, that horrible secret gets out.
Let the fallout begin.
Lisa Kelly is making her way through college, hanging on to a codependent relationship she no longer really wants to be in for the sake of its familiarity.
Daniel is a fellow student, a stranger, and nothing more than a blip on her radar until one day, she discovers something about him that makes him more than a blip, and she starts wondering what it would be like to be with him.
She is terrified to even think about leaving her possessive boyfriend and losing all that comes with him: the easy companionship, all their mutual friends, and her carefully constructed social life.
But thoughts of Daniel begin consuming her so much, she writes a passionate poem about it to purge, hoping that putting her feelings and confusion out into the universe will help bring clarity.
The morning after she writes her poem, however, she realizes something odd: she starts hearing things as if by telepathy—a voice seeming to come from Daniel, telling her how much he wants her, letting her know it’s safe to leave her boyfriend and try her luck with him.
She wonders if Daniel is there just to remind her that there is life beyond her dead relationship, that possibilities abound in the real world.
But what about the voice she has started hearing? Is her mind playing tricks on her? Has wanting Daniel made her fool myself into thinking what she wishes he would say is what he is actually thinking? Or is Daniel really the one, and the universe has found an odd way to get the message to her?
A BWWM Interracial Romance, “Leap of Faith” is a novelette of about 14,000 words. It is a light tale of budding romance with a dash of telepathy, and the second in the sci-fi Bite-Sized Romance series.
Released 1/8/14, and currently available on Amazon and other channels!
SYNOPSIS: Brenda’s holiday season is looking pretty bleak.
She hasn’t spoken to her half-sister Rachel–the only family she has left–since Rachel stole her boyfriend, and Brenda hasn’t dated since. Now Rachel and the man Brenda once thought she’d marry herself are expecting a child, and Rachel keeps inviting her over to have dinner with them.
Brenda has already turned down their Thanksgiving invitation, but she doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone, yet she’s not sure she’s gotten over her ex enough to face the two of them as a couple. But then she collides with a handsome stranger in a coffee shop and everything changes…
Alex has given up on family Christmases and miracles after watching his family slowly get wiped out, his brother the latest casualty. He has settled on living life playing the field, not trusting his luck with having people he cares about stick around. But a chance encounter with a sad-looking beauty in a coffee shop arouses his curiosity.
