Book 16 MACABRE MALICE

Framed for a crime she didn’t commit by a group of corrupt cops that are out to ‘get her’, Kathy battles to retain her freedom.  She receives an unexpected bit of help from an Internal Affairs cop set on putting away all dirty cops.  Certain that Kathy has been targeted by this unscrupulous group, Special Agent Linda Miller helps Kathy and Portia prove Kathy’s innocence and in the process, finds herself attracted to Kathy.

Can feelings of gratitude and admiration turn to love for the widowed Kathy?  She can never reveal her full past to this cop she finds herself drawn to. Can Linda accept that there are parts of Kathy’s life she can never know about or will her investigative skills get in the way of their happiness?

Constant reminders of, and comparisons to, the woman she first loved make it hard for Kathy to commit herself fully to their budding romance.  How can Kathy move on when the past keeps sending reminders to let her know it isn’t done with her?

Book 17 MARINATING MALICE

It is time for Kathy to move on, but her thoughts want to keep her in the past.  Her wife has been dead over eighteen months.  She has a girlfriend who would like to become her lover.  Can she finally put the past behind her and move on?

Trust is the issue.  Clues to Kathy and Alice’s past seem to intrigue new girlfriend, Special Agent Linda Miller, a little too much.  Maybe it’s the cop in her?  Is Kathy ready to overlook this and take the next step?

Things seem to be conspiring to drive Kathy crazy.  Is she imagining the clues that point to her wife being alive?  Her friends assure her she isn’t seeing what she thinks she is. Could it all be in her mind?  Is it possible her wife is still alive, or is she only clinging to hope?  Her thoughts are holding her prisoner…

Book 18 MACERATING MALICE

Alice is ALIVE!

Where has she been?  What is the explanation for the missing months?

As Kathy listens she is horrified to realize what has happened to the woman she once called the love of her life.

How she survived begins to unfold as she describes the terrors that she has endured the last two years…

Book 19 MINACIOUS MALICE

As Alice continues with her tale of where she has been for the last couple of years, Kathy realizes the tally of deaths is adding up.  The same reasons that caused their separation are still there.  Can she forgive, much less forget, why they broke up in the first place?

Murder, planned murder especially, takes time.  Alice must feel ‘justified’ in who she targets.  She also must take into account that Sasha is not only a witness, but an accomplice to what Alice must do.  Sasha will be shocked as she realizes what Alice is capable of.  Sasha must learn to ‘appreciate’ Alice and her ‘skills.’

Follow along as Sasha and Alice begin the hunt for those who had imprisoned them….

Book 20 MEDDLESOME MALICE

As she listens to the horrors that Alice and Sasha endured at the hands of their captors, Kathy realizes she has to know, she MUST know everything Alice has been up to.  She wants to understand what kept them apart these past years…beyond her own anger at what her wife is capable of.

As the gruesome details of Alice and Sasha’s story unfold, Kathy asks herself ‘Does this justify what they did and are doing to those people?  Does it explain their prolonged absence from their families?’

Follow along as Alice and Sasha go in for the kill!  Learn how they carefully plot their revenge against the people who took so much from their lives…and take just as much and more from them in return. 

Their lives, their victims’ lives, will never be the same!

27 Years ago TODAY!

How many of you can say you remember what you were doing that many years ago?  I do.  That was a rather rough week.  I was suffering from the flu, in and out of the hospital all week only to go back for more hydration in the form of an I.V. drip.  My doctor was sick of seeing me.

27 years ago today was a Thursday, and I remember it so vividly because of what happened that evening.  Since I’d been so ill, I had to be ‘careful’ about what I ate.  I felt so good that day that I craved lasagna.  A favorite still.  So, we got Stouffers and I got my lasagna.  Well, a few hours later I began to have stomach pains.  Chock it up to too much too soon?  Or should I mention I also happened to be very, very pregnant at the time?  When my husband at the time (Hey, yes I AM a lesbian NOW, but I was young and stupid and trying heterosexuality)….said, how do you tell the difference between flu cramps and being in labor?   Well, I was 23 at the time and I’d already had a baby so of course I knew it all!  That’s what I told him, I would KNOW!  Well, when those flu cramps got five minutes apart, he called the doctor.  I told them, I didn’t mind going into the hospital just as long as I didn’t miss my favorite show which was due on that night.  Those were the days when you had to wait the entire season to see what you missed in one night for a rerun…if you got that!  At the time my favorite show was L.A. Law…hello Susan Dey anyone?2120587  Well, I got my wish.  They got me into a room and I refused to contribute ANYTHING to the delivery of my son until I could watch the entire episode.  How’s that for a devoted fan?

A few hours later I was willing to get that baby out of me and I cooperated.  Not bad!  I think I’ll keep him.  Happy Birthday Andrew!  (He’s given the name I would have been given had I been a boy).  Btw, I’m STILL trying to lose that baby fat!

Sayyida, part of the FIRST LGBT KindleWorlds is now available

14610679_1178518042220362_1424930477_n

Sayyida, variously known as a pirate queen, Queen of the Western Seas, or Queen of Tétouan was a REAL and HISTORICAL figure, but not much is known of her.

Sayyida married young, just sixteen, at the insistence of her father.  Her first husband was thirty years older and a friend of her father’s.  Al-Mandri sensed his bride’s intelligence and taught her about his business affairs and diplomacy.  Together, the couple rebuilt Tétouan, which had been destroyed by the Reconquista, and when her husband died in 1515, she became the Governor or Queen of Tétouan in her own right.

Later, Sayyida was pursued by the King of Fes, Ahmed al-Wattsi, and accepted his marriage proposal, but on her terms: he had to travel to her kingdom to marry her, not the other way around.

Sayyida’s love of the high seas and her appetite for battle and conquest often clash with her duties as wife, mother, and queen.  As hardworking as she is, Sayyida feels an emptiness in her life.  Will Aya, her new slave, silence this longing?  Join us as this fictional version of a real woman takes you into her world and captures your heart….

What is KindleWorlds? Welcome to Kindle Worlds, a place for you to publish fan fiction inspired by popular books, shows, movies, comics, music, and games. With Kindle Worlds, you can write new stories based on featured Worlds, and engage an audience of readers.

When I was first asked by Alex Westmore to participate, I didn’t wait for her to fully explain but said an immediate YES!  This fan-fiction is based on the book Plundered World Series! —The Pirate’s Booty by Alex Westmore.  Alex approached me to write this, giving me an early copy of her book to get the flavor of her delightful characters.  I have chosen to write about Sayyida since not a lot is known about this famous woman. The character Quinn Callaghan is Alex’s and I give her credit.  Please read her book if you like my story.
