*Author’s Note*:During my journey I’ve met some remarkable women who were victims of domestic abuse. I was amazed at how many myths concerning this topic continue to span across decades. The humiliation, fear, lack of knowledge, and the popular “I don’t want to get involved” from others, keeps the abuse going. Running from Beige took me three years to write. I found myself stepping away from the book as my own painful memories flooded in, as well as the grief for my friends who didn’t make it out alive. This book is my way of offering courage, strength, and hope to women. Many forms of abuse are brought to the surface in Running from Beige. If you’re in an abusive situation, call the police and tell at least one other person. You don’t have to be alone. This is a work of fiction.
Would you flee from the life you live in if you could?
Connie, Suzy, and Karen did. Through their desperate attempts to reclaim themselves, the paths of these three women become intertwined. They develop a friendship and sisterhood stronger than any of them imagined.
Refusing to let one another face any of their hardships alone, they set out together on a journey toward discovery, hope, and freedom. But what they don’t expect are the heartaches, betrayals, and shattered lives that lie waiting.

Genre(s): Humor | Sex & Marriage
What are the ingredients of a marriage? Pure love? Free sex? Nice home cooked food? Children playing around? Then, what about mother- in- laws, divorce, hatred and alimony? In my opinion, in Greece and all over the world, marriage is a mystery and -even worse- “the secret to a happy marriage remains a secret…”

Averie agrees to sit in on an exclusive dinner party as the fourteenth guest, in order to rescue the other attendees from bad luck. But it’s Averie who needs rescuing when all hell begins to break loose.
Averie Cooke has never set foot on the old Faulkner plantation because of the macabre history surrounding it; not to mention everyone says the place is haunted.

Later that same night, the petite southern belle, Emily Faulkner wrapped a thick rope around her delicate neck and joined her lover in the afterlife. Legend says all hell broke loose after that. Unaware that their only daughter was hanging dead up in the cupola, Emily’s parents continued on with their festivities, gorging themselves on prime rib, and guzzling expensive wine. They were pretty drunk by the time Lunar’s brothers burst inside the house slinging their hatchets, vindicating their brother’s murder. They decapitated James Faulkner, his socialite wife Elizabeth and dismembered all eleven dinner guest. The massacre was the bloodiest ever recorded.
So why would Averie agree to sit at the same table, on the same night, a hundred and fifty years later? She needs the money that’s why. But, she gets much more than she bargains for when she and another mysterious guest transports back to the year 1859, exactly one month before the fateful hanging of Lunar Wilson. Things go from bad to worse when she discovers the only way back home is to stop his murder. Can she put her fears aside long enough to change the past?
Thirteen for Dinner is a page turning thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat one minute, laughing out loud the next and crying while you contemplate the meaning of life. Dealing with issues such as racism, slavery, hatred, and fear you’ll discover the only weapon that has the power to damage them all…love.
Genre(s): African American | Thrillers
A chilly spring night in rural South Carolina at the tail end of Reconstruction, the murder of innocents. This is the setting for the initial chapter of the historical thriller, A Strange and Bitter Fruit.
Thomas “Tee” Powell, 15, manages to escape as his family is lynched. His father, Zeke, mother Hessie and young sisters Lannie and Effie were hung to teach the blacks of Aiken that voting is not the right of the former slaves, not anymore.
He is angry, but instead of wildly lashing out at the Klansmen that murdered his family, he runs away. After a disastrous detour to Tallahassee, Tee joins the Army and ends up in the West, at a remote Army outpost on the lip of the Black Hills. Here, he grows up and begins to accept responsibility for his life and for the lives of others. After six years, the past, in the form of two of the Klansmen, one now a U.S. Senator on a mission to sign a treaty with the Indians, confronts him.
He had buried his past deep, even changing his last name. Now, he has to confront it head on, starting with the two killers that entered his fort. Trained by the Army to kill, Tee emerges from his exile and takes revenge on those that committed the murder of his family, beginning with the two men. His purpose is now clear, he must take revenge, and he proceeds ruthlessly to do so. But revenge has its own cost, and Tee suffers that price. Many innocent people are killed, and he struggles with the guilt.
A Strange and Bitter Fruit is the story of revenge and its consequences. It is a story of violence and race, a true American story. The novel raises serious questions: Is there a limit on revenge? Is there an act so horrible that any response, no matter how vicious, is just?
A Strange and Bitter Fruit, although it takes place in the 19th Century, confronts the reader with many of the issues of race and violence that we continue to live with today.
This is a second edition with updated and expanded ending chapters.
