March 17, 2011 Excerpt



I became addicted to reading around age eight when my teacher read aloud Charlotte's Web to the class. When I was in high school I began writing my own novels.
Having lived for more than half a century, I've held many jobs. Among them: office clerk, file clerk, quarters inspector, sales clerk, benefits processor, grocery store bagger, Avon/basket/scrapbooking/jewelry lady, driver, cook, ride operator, telemarketer, publicist, teacher, web mistress, mother and Girl Scout leader. But I have to say that I am blessed --and sometimes cursed-- to have found something I love to do in writing.
Readers don't always understand that writing is something we have to do and that urge can sometimes be frustrating. In my stories I love to explore sensuality and spirituality but I never know what strange settings or characters will be involved.

Spell of the Cat

Since ancient times, supernatural energy has flowed between humans and the cat shape-shifters known as the Baashi. One species can revive and strengthen the other; intimate relations between the two produce spectacular results. The Baashi were once viewed as gods but when humans began to try to control and exploit their power, the Baashi went into hiding, roaming the world in small feral packs.
 Just released: Spell of the Cat
The shape-shifting cat-like creatures called Baashi, have hidden from humans for eons. Jenna, a computer specialist at a laboratory  where the Baashi are being experimented on, has begun to despise what is happening to the mysterious creatures. Keth, a male of the Baashi, returns from a journey to find his pack being captured and disappearing into a lab. He'll do anyting to get inside that lab and rescue his people. Jenna and Keth are bound together in a series of mind-shattering encounters. But in order to be together, one of them will have to betray their own kind.
Coming Soon: Secret of the Cat
The proud sensual Baashi male named Dare has come to a small coastal town in search of humans who prey on his kind. Most of the Baashi in this town have either fled or keep a very low profile. The police haven't been able to solve the series of gruesome murders recently taking place. One of the cops, Angela, attracts Dare's attention. He's baffled by the hint of dysfunctional Baashi mys emanating from her. Can a Baashi know nothing about their nature? He's inexorably drawn to her, but how can he convince her of what she is? Angela's beliefs about reality are threatened when she learns that a mysterious cult is stalking shape shifters in her town and that she herself may be one of them. Can she and Dare defeat this menace and learn to embrace their bond? The connection has to be hot enough to carry her to a new awareness of what she truly is.
