The Payoff

Ten years ago law student Cali and straight girl Esta shared a night of passion at ShudderCon. A night that ended with both their lives changed irrevocably and with Esta walking away forever.

Fast forward a decade and Cali’s comic book designing career has failed to take off. She has a week until she starts a staid desk job and ShudderCon is her final gasp of freedom. The last thing she expects when she arrives is to lock eyes with the one woman responsible for changing her life in an instant.

Esta has spent a decade burying her true self, coming out of the closet only once a year to celebrate ShudderCon. And when she sees the woman that started it all she can’t help but want to run again. Her secret life is tearing her apart, but she’s too afraid of losing her job, her family, and her friends to come out now. Until an ex-client appears who wants to take that decision out of her hands…

The connection between Cali and Esta is too strong to be denied. But just as Cali’s life seems to be coming together at con, Esta’s is falling apart. Unless both of them are willing to take a risk so they can both get the payoff.

Once in a lifetime you meet the person capable of changing you forever. No one can hope for a second chance. Or can they?

I’ve always loved romance, any kind of romance. But growing up, I could never find the exact kind of romance I wanted, the kind of romance about people like me. So I decided to write it myself. My books are about two people falling in love, just like all romances are. But in my case, those two people just happen to both be women. And all my stories have a happy ending, because I truly believe that there’s a happy ending out there waiting for everyone.

When I’m not writing I’m spending far too much time online shopping, trying to persuade my cats to dress up, and trying to persuade my wife that I’m not as crazy as I sometimes appear (she believes this about half the time, the other half of the time she just puts up with me with endless patience).
