I hope you decide to purchase my books while you're here! Check out the "Sumerian Secret," and "Friends 2 Fire." I wrote Friends under the pseudonym Dr. Sophia Stanton because I remembered how terribly disappointed I was when I picked up the two books by John Grisham that were not legal thrillers. They were beautifully written, but I got them because I wanted to read "My John Grisham"- the legal thriller-author who had kept me turning pages for years. Being a 40-year journalist, except for occasional feature freelancing for magazines, I write about serious topics; either nonfiction or in the case of "The Sumerian Secret," and fiction based on fact.
By using the pseudonym for romances, I hope not to confuse my readers. It is not the same pseudo I use for work with the on-line publisher Secret Cravings Publishing, in that same genre.
Unfortunately my book, "If I Should Die Before I Wake," a true story about my escape from domestic abuse, went out of print when its publisher did. It was published by Rainbow's End, once a great company to work for, its officials flew me from Florida to Pennsylvania in 1992 to be keynote speaker at it's writing conference, "Writing that Sells." It was also used at several colleges in the Womens' Study programs (and may still be).
You can imagine how disappointed I was after such a great experience to find my publishers (both print and on-line) and publishers for whom I regularly edited, going out of business one at a time. This influenced my decision to self-publish "The Sumnerian Secret," in 2016, which I wish to sell to major publisher. My plans for searching for a new agent who represented this type of work went out the window in September of that year when I was in a massive automobile accident and lost almost five months of both body useage and memory.
This is a brand new, never seen book seeking a producer or publisher. It's main genre is romance, secondary genre, suspense. Here is a brief synopsis:
CONFIDENTIAL CLIENTELE, at 79,000 words, is fiction based on facts learned as a journalist who has sat on tires and drank coffee from a corn can as she listened to the stories behind the grimy, hopeless faces. It is romantic suspense, with adult scenes.
On the verge of homeless after leaving everything to escape her abusive husband, Selena McDaniels uses her skills as a hotel manager to keep her two children fed and housed. Sleeping with the hotel’s franchise owner, Bertram Brand seems to ensure the family’s needs will continue to be met, until he falls in love with her. This disaster is only one of many that occur simultaneously in Selena’s life. She befriends a man called Bubba who seems to be the glue who holds a strangely-populated homeless camp together in the nearby woods, and their friendship begins to grow as she helps him through his DT’s and starts seeing him as the man he once was. Selena’s life is further complicated by the harassment of law enforcement officers; a car accident that leaves her daughter in a long-term psychiatric hospital; her desperate attempts to keep Bertram from finding out she allows the homeless to clean up and rest in the unoccupied rooms; and her desire to get out of Bertram’s bed (and heart). As her friendship with “Bubba” progresses, she gradually extracts pieces of the man that once existed inside his ragged body; Sgt. Matt Matthews, a medic who served in the Gulf War. As she learns to understand Matt’s pain she finds it is exactly what she needs to take away the hatred she feels for her abusive ex-military husband. Friendship turns to respect, and finally, respect turns to love.
