Coming Soon: Spectrum

Autumn needs to build her business—fast—if she’s to survive and keep her house. Can she do it? And what about that weird guy, Zachary Palos? The Galerie des Bacchanals owner, with art galleries in both Philadelphia and Paris. Will we hear from him again? And where does Natalie fit in?

Colors is upmarket contemporary fiction, often called a book club novel or literary fiction. There’s plenty of action and romance, too, and the main theme in Colors is a woman’s personal growth through a series of devastating events. Plus, the lovers are an older woman and a younger man, and it features loads of domestic suspense plus a big dose of psychological realism. Add a few delightfully delicious, open-door passion scenes plus the intricacies of female friendships and family relationships, and that’s Colors.
Autumn’s world has unraveled. After losing her parents in a violent car crash, her husband’s behavior worsens, and her house in the country, the perfect Philadelphia getaway, only isolates her when her company downsizes and she’s laid off.
Armed with ambition, she’s determined to resurrect her long-buried dream of becoming an artist. But she needs help and, after an electrifying chance meeting with a gorgeous grad student, she hires Jory as her part-time chef.
Her talent blossoms, but her soon-to-be-ex husband is bent on her destruction. And as she struggles to find her place in the art world, her long-gone passion burns hot as she wrestles with desire, morality, friendship, self-identity, and finding love and freedom on her own terms.
Enjoy! And I’d love to know your thoughts. Every author wants to know what readers liked about a book and even what they didn’t like. I’d really appreciate a quick, honest review on Amazon. It not only helps me as a writer, it also helps potential readers decide whether to read a book, know what they’re getting into and, if they’re also writing a review, understand better what they just read. If you’re not sure how to write one (it doesn’t have to be long or complicated, and you don’t need to write a summary or a book report) check out my article How to Write an Online Book Review at Simple Writing. Thanks.
2036: The Final Resistance
The Final Resistance is a dystopian paranormal novella that seems quite the opposite of Colors. Kathryn, the main character, is much younger than Autumn and more concerned with survival and raising her daughter than deciding what to paint. But despite their differences, both Autumn and Kathryn are strong women determined to make the best of their unique situations in life.
Everything has changed.
After widespread bombings, 16-year-old Kathryn Foster becomes an orphan, and she fantasizes about using her Power to stop the seeds of fascism before they take root. But when she’s assaulted a few years later, her Power fails. Pregnant, her options are illegal and dangerous, but with her friend Maheen’s help, she lovingly raises her daughter, Regina.
As conditions worsen, her buried rage emerges. And twelve years later, resisters organize an army of Power. Kathryn’s Power. Regina’s Power. Maheen’s Power. And the organizer is not only a well-known politician, he’s the last person Kathryn wants to see. But it’s America’s chance for freedom, and it’s kill or be killed. Can she trust him?
