Book Excerpt

Tristan’s life had not gone as expected. He was all alone on a one-man crusade for truth, had successfully alienated himself from higher society through his television show, and saw no end to his loneliness. He missed the days when he had one true friend that he trusted and loved, a woman who cared about him too.
Regret tasted bitter, difficult to dismiss.
He had to see her…
Waiting at the bar of the popular dance club near her apartment, he felt impatient. Half swiveled in his seat to watch the entrance, he slugged down another shot of tequila. The fiery liquid had become his friend too often in recent months.
Tristan needed a better friend.
He had a good friend once. Most people were lucky if life gave them one true trustworthy friend. Like an arrogant fool, he walked away from his.
Tonight was his second chance. Solaris Sullivan had just arrived.

Book Excerpt

"Penelope, I have to go."
In a daze I just keep staring, not moving an inch, barely even blinking.
"I want you to tell me that you are alright, before I will leave you," he pleads. Still not really putting coherent thoughts together, I force a smile to my mouth automatically in response and soften my gaze upon his.
"I’ll be fine."
His expression is torn, but my words seem to be enough for him to rationalise that he is fine to go. He forces a tiny smile, mimicking mine.
"I will call you," he replies as his breath blows sensually out over my mouth - the scent beyond exhilarating to inhale. His face dips towards mine, still grasping my chin and places a firm yet intricate kiss on the very corner of my mouth. It lingers for a moment before he hastily pulls away, dropping his secure hold and standing all at the same time. Before I can manage a thought or response, he abruptly heads out of the lounge room and into the lobby. Mere seconds later, I hear the faint click of the entrance door.
He was gone.
About the Author:

From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy... it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, 'Cut' had been completed.
