A story about a lonely librarian and a handsome waiter that looks forward to her monthly dinner dates with her best girlfriend. When she gets stood up, he sees his opportunity to step to and finally take a chance on them. A cute turn sexy short tale.

I love writing and I can't picture doing anything else.

'What a Way to Start the Day' and the eshort series 'A Difficult Decision' are both bestsellers on omnilit.

I'm currently writing my steampunk submission for 'A Clockwork Fairytale' which is being released next year.
