Bee Balms & Burgundy (Debut Novella)..... First Book
In this rousing story, Nick May is a successful Gen X entrepreneur now
living in Vancouver. At 32, he's lost patience with live-in girlfriend
Sonja, as well as business partner Jason. Upon a late summer visit to
his hometown of St. Paul, he reacquaints with childhood neighbor and
lifelong friend Mia. Unbeknownst to Nick, Mia is now a post-mastectomy
breast cancer survivor, with her cancer currently in remission. She also
harbors another powerful secret—one that will change Nick forever.
To every woman who has fought
the battle, and the subsequent
self-doubt and fear,
win or lose...
I offer my respect
Peace & Love
Two for Tuesday ...... Second Book in Progress
Emmanuelle Foshey—“Manny” to friends and lover—is a 29-year-old former
Chicago jazz dancer and current Minneapolis ad exec. Seven months ago,
in a strange event, she met publisher and philanthropist Cameron Stiles.
Today, after mending their past heartbreaks, Manny and Cam nurture an
epic, immaculate romance.
Cam lives in the small town of Cannon Valley, 40 minutes south of his
St. Paul offices; he lives in a cute raspberry sorbet Victorian, at
which Manny spends most of my time. Cam’s seventeen-year-old neighbor,
Corey, is a California transplant; he’s also a domineering, single
mother’s only son and a social outcast. Every day, Corey finds it
increasingly difficult to cope in his new surroundings. Cam and Manny
lend a wing; day or night, there’s almost nothing they won’t do for the
kid; they adore him.
Then, tragedy strikes…
And nothing remains the same.
