Once Upon a Night

With a new title and a new cover…two stories and two songs that inspired them.

My two-story novella is available on Amazon and Smashwords for preorder. The launch date is January 25, 2018.

Thank you, Susan Toy, Kristin M. and Merry from Anessa Books. You’ll know why.

The first story, Once Upon a Nightis a retelling of Cinderella, inspired by the embedded song (click on the title!)

At first glance, Angela and Nick don’t seem to have much in common: she’s a young widow trying to make ends meet, and he’s a self-made billionaire in his mid-thirties. He’s confident, well-educated and eloquent; she’s shy, has struggled through school and communicates more easily with horses than with people.
But they share a deep, aching loneliness and the need for a brief escape – Angela from the ghosts of her past, and Nick from his uncertain future.
When the clock strikes midnight, will it bring the end or a new beginning?

 Blind Date from an unorthodox beginning to happily ever after in one hour and a half. The embedded song is a kind of clue–Lovers at first sight in love forever.

Two years after her divorce, Hannah is ready to move on. But when her friend pushes her to go on a blind date with a gallery owner, Hannah is hesitant. She’s attracted to Edward, an architect who works in the same building, even though they’ve barely exchanged two words.
Edward also has a blind date. The woman he’s about to meet, according to his friend, is “brilliant and gorgeous”. Edward would be intrigued, if only he could stop thinking of the quiet, shy and sexy-as-hell Hannah, the book editor from the top floor.

Not unlike my characters, I lead a double life: by day I'm a mother, a friend, a colleague, and the queen of my kitchen. When the moon rises, however, I shift into my other self and, as Queen of the Night, I reign the magical world of my imagination.
