When I was a kid I always appreciated that February was a short month--that's because my birthday's in early March and I was impatient. But as a grownup I really wanted to put the brakes on this month. February whizzed by way too fast. Too much to do, too little time to do it. But alas it is over with and thankfully the novel I was writing is finished as well.
Now I'm looking forward to some down time--and spring time. Spring, to me, is like a new beginning, a rebirth, a second chance. As a writer (and a human) I love second chances. Who doesn't want a re-do from time to time? Which brings me to my Second Chances Novels. These two stories were previously published as paperbacks some years ago. Now for the first time they are available only as ebooks. Even though I wrote them about a decade ago, they are a couple of my favorites. If you have an ebook reader (Amazon, Nook or iBooks) you might want to try them out.
Looking for Cassandra Jane:
Cassanda Maxwell has had a life filled with pain. Her mother died too young, her father is an abusive alcoholic, and she’s a misfit everywhere she goes.
After being shuttled between various foster homes, Cass struggles to find her identity and finds herself caught up with Scott Jones (aka “Sky”) and his group of friends who start a Jesus commune in California. But before long, the group is more interested in pot and sex than they are spiritual growth.
Once again, Cass finds herself trapped in unhappiness—and she longs for escape. Will Cass find the life and love she craves on a California commune—with the charismatic “Sky” and his followers? Or can she fulfill her dreams—and find her real future—with her childhood friend Joey?
