Firefighters are trained to keep calm in the face of extraordinary events, but James was never prepared for this.
Saving people is a regular practice in a firefighter’s line of work; it is not something extraordinary or unusual. Just routine. James has been trained to respond to emergency calls and what to do in difficult situations. For James, the most important part of her work is that she knows how to run into a burning building to save a life. She is a firefighter not for the glory and not for the honor. She is there to make a difference.
Working hard has always been a common practice for James, but when her secret significant other is pressuring her to solidify their relationship, tensions start to rise. James is being pushed into turning her life upside down and inside out. She can’t stop disturbing dreams about a little girl she saved from a house fire years prior. She struggles to find balance through the pressures and stressors of her daily life, but she still can’t shake the ill-fated feeling that something is wrong.

The Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary

Karen Everett isn’t looking to join a band the day she loses her notebook of poetry. She plays the cello and is unsure about what she wants in life, but she’s pretty sure it doesn’t involve being a professional musician. But a crush on the band’s beautiful lead singer Lana Kent, along with the desire to have her poetry shared with a larger audience, leads her to throw caution to the wind and play an audition that leads to her being invited to join the band at gigs.
After a spur of the moment decision lands them a spot on national television, Karen and the band find themselves riding an unexpected wave of popularity. Soon they’re touring the country, recording albums, making music videos, and trying to find time to have a personal life amid all the craziness. Aware that their surge in popularity is due to a fortuitous combination of popular trends and knowing they only have a few good years before their celebrity begins to wane, the ladies of Radiation Canary strive to make the most of their time in the spotlight before the public moves on.
With one eye on the inevitable end of their fame even as their popularity hits its peak, the band learns that it’s not how high you fly, it’s how gracefully you fall.
The Rainbow Hub has graciously reviewed The Rise and Fall of Radition Canary here. Z writes, “The best kind of fiction, the most memorable, the sort that leaves a lasting impression, most often seems to fall in your lap when it’s least expected. And it so often winds up being the exact thing you need to read at that precise point of your life.”

Kindle | Smashwords
Ambitious state prosecutor Natalie Ivans has a headline-making trial about to begin. To escape the pressure of the spotlight, she drives toward the Carolina shore but is left stranded, battered, and broken in a small town after a car accident.
Alone in a hospital in the middle of nowhere, her only lifeline is her nurse, Meredith Jameison. Meredith is facing a trial date of her own–for murder. Falling for her patients and hoping for a way out is de rigueur for Meredith and the staff starts a betting pool for how long it will take Natalie to break her heart. Meredith sees Natalie’s arrival as a sign her fortune is changing.
Natalie aches to return to the city. Facing a long sentence, Meredith doesn’t have much to offer. She only has her faith–in God, in herself, and in Natalie.
