Joy Parker had the perfect childhood.  Doted on by her parents, she couldn’t imagine her childhood any different.  As a child and later a young adult, she’s ignored by her much older siblings, made to feel the outsider…until a tragedy occurs, altering her life in ways she couldn’t possibly have imagined.

The next few years of her life are vastly different from her parents’ hopes and dreams for her.  Then suddenly, another life-altering event changes the course of her life and she must make decisions she never dreamt possible.  Winning the largest lottery in Wisconsin history opens the flood gates of possibility and means Joy must again decide which direction to take with the rest of her life.

After Joy is stalked relentlessly by fortune hunters, reporters, and even her own siblings, she decides to fly away into a future that she never could have imagined, let alone planned….

What would you do if you won $341,726,178.10 after taxes?  Come along for the ride as we discover what Joy Parker decides to do with it….

Where does friendship stop and love begin?

Nikki Kay is a successful lesbian romance author, from a loving Russian family. Her best friend Quinn from an uptight Anglo-Saxon family has been her best friend since childhood. Unfortunately for Nikki, Quinn is more than a best friend—she is the only woman Nikki ever truly loved.

DOCTORED http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EXJ9842

A brilliant child protégée, she dreams of becoming a doctor and a surgeon…and accomplishes her goals.  Unfortunately, her youth and round, child-like face work against her.  No matter how skilled she becomes, how knowledgeable, the old school, male-dominated medical hierarchy wants to keep her in ‘her place.’

Deana has worked hard to become an expert in her chosen field, but few believe this ‘child’ capable.   Specializing in infectious diseases, she travels the world—from the States to Europe to South America—honing her skills before winding up in Africa where her skills are desperately needed.

Meeting a nurse by the name of Madison MacGregor, she finds they share an insatiable curiosity and a love of helping others, but falling in love was not what she intended.  Later, when she loses Maddie to a misunderstanding, she is haunted by the one that got away…

Ten years have passed and both the doctor and nurse have moved on with their lives, but fate intervenes when they find themselves working at the same hospital.  Their friendship is revived…can their love be rekindled?  Will the past haunt them or bring them closer?  Will the secrets that both harbor keep them from realizing a future together?

Alexia is from another planet sent by the elders to kill Major Winston to put off the foreseen destruction of their planet by Earth’s mistakes.

From the backwoods of Pennsylvania to New York City to Alexia’s home world, the novel weaves a tale of emotional intrigue as two women from different words struggle with their desires, and life and death decisions.

VEIL OF SILENCE https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HJ7ZR0Y

Five years ago, Lieutenant Marsha Gagliano disappeared when her helicopter crashed in Afghanistan.  Her wife held out hope for her return, but with no word from the army after all that time, she begins to realize she may have to move on without her.

At the embassy in Kabul, a burqa-clad woman arrives at the gate with two young children in tow.  The black-haired, brown-eyed woman looks like an Afghan native, but her American accent belies this.  She identifies herself as Lieutenant Marsha Gagliano, all the while keeping a close eye out behind her as though at any moment, someone might jump out and snatch her back.

Questions arise regarding her disappearance and reappearance and the army is suspicious.  The children are obviously hers.  Has she consorted with the enemy?  How will her wife react to these children?  Will she be able to accept children she had no part in conceiving?

What is this woman hiding beneath her chador?  What secrets lie behind her veil of silence?

14e0a82f6b776d5bc0439f617de3f494A fellow author that I greatly admire put a SHOUT OUT for donated books for the Chely Wright Foundation called LikeMe.  As I admire both the author (who I had the good fortune to interview earlier this year in my group LESFIC READING GROUP on Facebook as well as meet in person at the Golden Crown Literary Society in New Orleans) as well as the singer, her voice is very smooth, she’s attractive, and she stands for something I believe in….I immediately sent her a box of my books…including REPRESENTED which I re-released earlier this year.  Represented is special to me because it is a similar story to Chely Wrights.  I even did an interview for it here.  I also sent her a separate box of books from Shadoe Publishing, my publishing house that I own where I help other authors achieve their dream of becoming published authors.  My authors were notified and those that could, sent their own books.  You see this worthwhile organisation has a library that was sadly lacking in the books that it could lend out to people.  So Kris Bryant (the author I mentioned) gave a shout out and her P.O. Box to those who inquired and generously offered to transport over any and all contributions.  I sent well over a dozen of my own and my authors books to contribute.  As of this posting, Kris has over 60 books to take to the foundation!  Keep it up, contact Kris (I’ve put in the link on her highlighted name).  Also, get in the game and click on the other links I have posted here…I’m sure you will find things you like and enjoy.  Join, if you can, participate if you so desire, and above all…give back to your little community.  Thank you and thank Kris Bryant for planting the seed, for Chely Wright for having the foundation and taking on the cause, and for those who actively continue on fighting the good fight for future generations.book_hbo_meme

Pay it Forward….with BOOKS!

Several years ago when Harry Potter was at its height and kids anxiously awaited each and EVERY release, my kids included, we ran into a problem at the school library.  Our school was brand spanking new and as a result got the new books LAST before the more established grade schools.  So, for like 400 kids waiting for a book there might be one or two, if that.  Then you had the time while someone had it checked out and you had to wait for them to return it before it became available for the next student…and the next.

I was in a good place in my life.  Two homes, two vehicles, and two boys who LOVED the HARRY POTTER books, which had been introduced to them by their loving Grandmother, my mother.  We all enjoyed the books both written and on tape as we took many trips together during that time.  My boys had a rule though; we ALL had to read the books FIRST before we could listen to them read to us on tape.  It was great as the boys read these thick volumes and enjoyed the stories.  Their imaginations soared.  But then we found out about the local library and their problems.

So, I went out and bought two complete sets of the books and ‘donated’ them to our school library.  The librarian couldn’t understand what my son meant at first when he brought them in to her.  When she finally realized what it was about she got up and gave him a kiss on the cheek, requesting that he give me the same.  Every new book that came out got a ‘donation’ or two to the school library so that more copies were available to the kids whose parents either couldn’t afford to buy them or didn’t realize their children were reading them.  My kids too got such a kick out of knowing their friends could read the same stories and enjoy them the same way they did.

A few years later, they were out of the school system but their mom (me) began to write her own novels.  I now donate them to the local library here in small-town USA as the LGBT section is woefully neglected.  I don’t think they appreciate Lesbian Fiction but I don’t really care for their narrow-mindedness.  I did hear from someone in town who was able to borrow one of my books and has since purchased ones that aren’t available by paperback.  I’ll continue to pay it forward…with books.  Thank you for reading!
