I'm excited to announce the release of a new 6,000 word short story called Barefoot Heroine.  This two part narrative provides a glimpse into the secret life of Ellery Mayne from the perspective of Ash Ryan, a member of the security team assigned to monitor and protect her.
  The first part of the story takes place in the early days of Ash's assignment before Ellery realizes that she's under surveillance.  Here Ash relates the details of what at first looks like bizarre behavior on her part, but turns out to be Ellery's version of a good deed.  This part of the short is designed to give readers an idea of what to expect from Ash's perspective in the upcoming book "In The Shadow," that includes scenes, conversations and action which Ellery's account did not.  This is only logical since he spends a number of months assigned to her case without realizing that she's on to him and his team.  
The second half of Barefoot Heroine provides Ash's take on that pivotal evening when he meets Ellery 'officially' on the night of her dinner party with Ray and Lidia Torrence.  This scene gives readers a feel for Ash's true feelings about Ellery, his job, his boss Ray, and his colleague Lidia.  If you enjoyed this scene in "In The Spotlight," I'm willing to bet you'll enjoy it even more in Barefoot Heroine!  Did you know you may be entitled to a free copy of Barefoot Heroine?  There are two simple steps:
