Represented 2018.jpg

Coming out is hard.  Coming out in the public eye is even harder.  People think they own a piece of you, your work, and your life, they feel they have the right to judge you.  You lose not only friends but fans and ultimately, possibly, your career…or your life.

Cassie Summers is a Southern Rock Star; she came out so that she could feel true to herself.  Her family including her band and those important to her support her but there are others that feel she betrayed them, they have revenge on their minds…

Meeting Cassie at a party there is a definite attraction.  She does not however wish to represent her despite her excellent reputation.  She fights it tooth and nail until she is contractually required to do so.  In nearly costs them more than either of them anticipated…their lives.

Cavalcade ~ NEW

Calvacade Background 1

Molly didn’t know what kind of life to expect when she fell in love with Erin Herriot—her schoolmate, her best friend, and a woman.  She had been grateful for Erin’s friendship when the bank swindled her after selling her parents’ farm and she was invited to live on Erin’s parents’ farm. 

After making the difficult decision to live life as ‘man and wife,’ Molly gladly accepted the challenges before them.  Together, they made the decision to sell Erin’s farm and embark on the journey of a lifetime…on the Oregon Trail.

Erin couldn’t give Molly children; however, she could love her forever.  But leaving the area where they had both grown up and where everyone knew the women was the only way they could be together without questions about the true nature of their relationship. 

Come along on their adventure as two women cross the country, adopt a family, and begin a life that neither had imagined possible growing up in the mid-1800s.

Timed Romance ~ 2nd edition, new cover

Timed Romance 2018 Cover.jpg

Falling in love gives you no time or place; no reason or excuses.  It’s a deliberate act that can leave you breathless from ecstasy or pain.  There is no rhyme, no sense, no time.  There is no precedence, no priority.  It befuddles you.  In the right time and place, it can cause you to reach the highest highs or the lowest of lows.  Bad timing, though, for any romance can hurt you more than the love itself.

Reese has worked hard all her life to garner the satisfaction in the jobs and levels she has obtained.  Landing the position of estate manager for the Cavindish family of England is exciting.  A new country, a new challenge, and a new life.  She packs up her life in Connecticut, kisses her daughter goodbye and set’s off on what she is sure will be the adventure of a lifetime…in its own time.

Lady Cavindish is shy, retiring, and a bit out of her league when the attractive confident blonde Reese Paulson arrives on the scene to run their family estates for her brother, the lord of the manor.  Her admiration for Reese soon turns to hero worship, and at some point, to a love that neither expected.  Their love, however, isn’t what the Cavindish family name or properties need.  It is bad timing for everyone involved. 

The love she feels for Lady Cavindish is totally unexpected, and Reese soon realizes that her presence can only hinder the woman she has fallen for.  She makes the excruciating decision for them both to move on, without her. 

Finding a new love in Australia, though, proves that life has plans for us that we can only hope gives us what we need.  Can Reese move on from the woman she loves, or can she love the women she is with now?  How can she forget Veronica, her first love?

Fate, however, brings them together time and time again.  Can it time their romance so they can have their happily ever after or is it determined to rip their hearts raw time and time again?

To Love a Shooting Star ~ 2nd edition, new cover

To Love A Shooting Star

Erin Ingram is an enormously successful Hollywood star.  She has starred in, directed, and produced many films over her long career, starting as a child.  She has even won several Academy Awards.  She is also a closeted lesbian.  Will announcing to the world that she is in love with a woman destroy her long and successful career?  Is the world ready to let the ‘girl next door’ come out of the closet?

Meeting Erin Ingram was a delight and a surprise to author Kate McCall.  Better yet, there seemed to be an attraction.  Getting to know her she was thrilled at their relationship as it developed.  Her own career as a successful novelist made her more than equal for the talented Ms. Ingram.  Will announcing their relationship to the public destroy their love, their careers, or their blended families?

This is one of my shorter novels, less known, but much beloved.  I wrote it at a time where I had an incredible crush on a Hollywood actress…much to my delight, I found out she was a lesbian…talk about writing for your dreams to come true.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  The book was written many years ago, but it’s been recently edited, tweaked, and of course, the new cover.  Enjoy!

 

 

Fact vs Fiction

The definition of Fiction, as per Google search is:

Capture

So this means, you sometimes have to suspend disbelief to read a story…it’s called fiction for a reason, because the author, made up this story, it came from their imagination.  If it were fact, it would be a biography (even then, read it with a grain of salt), an auto-biography, or they would clearly state it was non-fiction.

The Northwood Lodge

My book The Northwood Lodge  (yes, I know it should be Northwoods, but I didn’t name it, my grandparents did) is the only piece of literature that I have written that is non-fiction…this means, it’s not made up.

My other works are clearly made up…or as they call it in layman’s terms, fiction.  I find it amusing when someone states they are upset because I made up a town, a place, or hey, the people aren’t real…um, hello?  Again, it’s called fiction for a reason.

Seriously, if they were fact, my erotica alone would make me the biggest s&*t there is and I am clearly not that.  At the time I wrote it, it is what I felt like writing and that’s what we authors do, we write what we feel like, make it up as it goes, sometimes some of us outline it and plan it out, but ultimately, it’s from our imaginations.

As a child, I had an active imagination.  I grew up without anyone around because we lived far out in the country.  My nearest neighbor was about a half a mile or so away.  My siblings were older and didn’t want to play with their little sister.  So I escaped to books and my imagination.  I have to tell you, that imagination never went away.  I can still clearly see the wild Indians, the Little House on the Prairie, and such things.  I think that is why I decided to write a prequel to my book Vetted while I’m also writing Vetted Further, the sequel to these amazing people.

Keep in mind, these books are not based on any REAL people, but real characters in my head.  They are also works in progress and subject to change (including the covers, see the watermarks still?)…but, it’s a nice western series for those who loved Vetted and it’s wonderful characters.

 

It was odd doing the research for Cavalcade and Pioneering, realizing that that this was 170 years ago!  Holy moly!  However, I hope when you read it, you will realize the beginning of this amazing pioneer family down through the years with Cavalcade and with it’s sequel Pioneering, how the family settled in 1800’s Oregon on the very same ranch that I featured in Vetted and Vetted Further.  I loved doing the research to include real, non-fiction facts in with my fiction works as well as including tidbits for the future stories.  Using real historical facts, makes it seem real, but again, it’s fiction.

Keep in mind, fiction means I made it up, non-fiction means I didn’t…
