Everyday Adventures

What if you could be a different person every day? A sister with a ghost for a brother, the last human left on Earth, or a fugitive on the run from boarding school. Everyday Adventures is a collection of micro fiction and short stories that explore multiple genres and the art of story telling. 

White Rose

“Mrs Markov, where is your husband?”

Beth’s life is perfect. Newly married to FBI Special Agent Nick Markov and building her career as a forensic botanist, Beth has it all.

Until Nick betrays his fellow agents and abandons her.

Beth is left alone to face the devastation of Nick’s lies. Grilled by the FBI, the only person who believes Beth is innocent is Nick’s boss, Assistant Director Warren Pearce.

When Beth disappears, her abduction signals the start of a series of events that no one could have foretold.

White Rose follows Beth’s story through a series of romantic suspense/thriller novels, all rolled into one continuing tale.

Seeing Red

Have you ever enraged a murderer?

Redhead Nell, a civilian psychologist with the US Navy, takes her dream job at a submarine base to escape a protective family and build a life of her own. Meeting James, the handsome skipper of the submarine Scottsdale, is a bonus she hadn’t expected.

When Nell is attacked after a body is pulled from the local river, two investigations swing into motion, with no obvious link between them. The killer plots to keep the cases separate and conceal the damning secrets from his past that would lead to a connection, and his demise.

As his attempts to complete the cover-up fail, his frustration and rage turn toward the person who stands in his way.

The redhead shrink. 

Ghost

Life was simple, until I kidnapped her.

Ghost. The name of a man who is known for his ability to do the impossible. Of course, a hitman of his caliber is hard to find and his skills do not come cheap. Ghost has trained himself to be cold. A necessity when eliminating his victims. Take a job, complete it, get paid. Nothing more. Do as you're told. He has been successful with every hit he was assigned. When living in this hellhole some call a town, a man finds him and asks Ghost for his services. Accepted. First target, a girl. Heiress to the White family. Easy. A simple hit. This girl, that when he puts the gun to her head, intrigues him more than she should. He hesitates. What to do? Follow orders? Or take the first step down a road that could destroy him?

*If you do not wish to wait for the full story, "Ghost" is available for sale at your favorite eBook retailer

A world of which I belong

-

Beyond the Brontide is a collection of poems of varying topics. Some are titled, some are not, but most are thoughtful and vivid.

Others will simply make you laugh.

Ranging over topics and genres such as fantasy, love, jealousy, depression, anxiety, sex, and more, Beyond the Brontide is a glimpse into the meaning behind the oddest, best, and worst sides of humanity.

Taking Comfort

Leanne had Cara when she was still a teenager.  Now that her daughter is sixteen she wants her to understand.  She writes about her past in a book, but nothing is straight forward.  Who was Leanne before she had Cara?   

Encounters

We all have secrets, but some of them are darker than others. Some of them have teeth.

There are hundreds carrying those secrets around us every day: a vampiric race living in the shadows, biding their time until the moment comes to make themselves known to the world. This race, the Silver, are as varied in their pleasures and vices as humanity. Through the millennia they colour our lives with fantasy, with romance, with wonder and with horror. 

So how well do you really know the people with whom you surround yourself? Your friends, your colleagues, acquaintances and lovers? And if you can't even be sure of them, then how can you ever trust a stranger to be what he appears?

Encounters is a series of short-story prequels to Josie Jaffrey's post-apocalyptic paranormal romance novels: the Solis Invicti quadrilogy (available on Amazon). 

The Backstories: Undercover Romance Series

Nathan Reed is one of the main characters in the Undercover Romance Series, but not much is know about his past until now. This short story follows his life from the time his parents meet. Find out why they divorce and his mother ends up married to her new boss, Elliott Carlisle. Discover the earth shattering event that drives him toward the dangerous career path of becoming a Navy Seal, and eventually an FBI agent. Hear Nathan's thoughts when he first encounters his new partner, Kate Collins, the woman who will ultimately end up changing his life.

Leo Kensington met Kate for the first time when she was eleven years old at his graduation party. He doesn't encounter her again until she's twenty-seven and in desperate need of revenge.  He's thoughtful and romantic.  Can he capture her heart and repair the damage Nathan has inflicted?

Howard Kensington and Julia Hollingsworth were practically forced into a relationship when they turned sixteen.  Their fathers made a pact when they were born, only a few months apart, to guide them toward marrying each other when they were older. Howard doesn't balk on what is expected of him, but Julia is another story.  He may not have been able to hold onto her attention, but twenty-eight years later, her daughter, Kate, keeps looking his way. 

WARNING: These short stories contain Adult Language and Sexual Content.

How to Capture Kate: Undercover Romance Series Book 1

Clay Carlisle escorts her to the bar downstairs where she can make sure her person of interest doesn't leave the hotel.  She has a couple of glasses of wine with him and wakes up the next morning in his bed.  There's a small problem.  She can't remember how she got there. 

Just when Kate thinks her life can't get any more complicated, her billionaire grandfather introduces her to his best friend's grandson, Leo Kensington.  He's thoughtful and romantic, but is just getting out of rehab.  

Who will be the man to capture Kate's heart?

Trust Me

 

A small, sleepy town in Texas awakes to find a local high school girl has commited suicide.

Three weeks later, her friends still have trouble understanding. How could she have taken her own life? Her best friend, Kathy, comes to a startling revelation which causes a chain of events to unfold that no one could have expected.

Soon kids from all walks of life within the town become entangled in a confusion of mental illness, sexuality--and murder?

.... .... .... .... .... .... .... ....

This began as a series of short stories that are all interconnected but may be read standalone, but as the story developed it became apparent that they were more like chapters in the book. 

Up until chapter 6 all stories are standalone, but from then on all are connected.

TL;DR

TL;DR (or "Too long, didn't read") is a mostly autobiographical work with more than a hint of exaggeration, extrapolation and pure fantasy thrown in.

From railways to romance, horses for courses, mountains to molehills and the odd hiccup along the way, join our protagonist as he finally works out that being a man of few words is better than a man of many words.

TL;DR: read this book.

Aethos

It was the Breath of God, and to the people of the City it was the core of their world. It warmed their homes and their hearts, it sustained them and strengthened them, and it filled their lives with joy. Known as the Aether to those who studied it, its intricacies remained elusive to all. It was imperceptible to the naked eye, yet its presence was felt everywhere. It was infinitely subtle, yet immeasurably powerful. With it, the City stood as a fortress against the desert winds, and as a bastion of hope and of faith. Its people lived without fear of disease, war, famine, or poverty. Life was perfect.

 

But as the pious civil officer Nathaniel Grey will soon come to suspect, the true nature, and source, of the Aether may be vastly far removed from everything he had been led to believe.

Female Anonymous

Humorous short stories depicting female characters.

Hopelessly, Completely, MADLY in Love: Lovin' Lawmen Series Book 1

Historical Romance set in my paternal grandfather's home state of Kentucky starting in 1876. 

Lexine (Lexi) Donovan has had a crush on Cooper Grayson since she was thirteen years old. He left town the year before and headed to California, hoping to fulfill his dreams to travel and find more excitement than his small town had to offer. He quickly discovers all he can think about is his beloved Lex. When he returns, she has recently accepted a ring from her best friend, Silas Reilly. 

Silas has been in love with Lexi since he first met her when he was only fourteen years old. He still cannot find the nerve to talk to her father. The man scares him. 

Undaunted, Cooper immediately seeks permission from Lexi’s father, Heath, to court his daughter. Silas is a small-town farm boy with no dreams and no ambition. He is simply not right for a girl as special as Lex.

Faced with an impossible situation of choosing between the two men, Lexi takes the coward’s way out and boards a train to Louisville to visit her grandmother. She returns home several months later with a husband, Luke Weston. 

During a picnic Lexi has planned for Luke’s birthday at her special place by the pond, a shot rings out just as she is delivering the wonderful news he is going to be a father.
