Book Excerpt:
I had only ever been with one man. And that man was my everything. Jay had way more experience in that department than I did and the kinds of experience he probably enjoyed would be far more than anything I would even know - let alone do.  Images begin flashing of the glamorous and sometimes sleazy looking woman. The remarks that Chris made about me going to him for seconds!
Oh god...
My whole body begins to tense as I feel Jays mouth kiss me gently behind my ear, surging the tremors to waves of anxiety.
"You don't have to be scared of me. With me. I will take care of you. Always."
Oh my.
His warm breath cascades over my skin and my body fights internally, with wanting to leap and wanting to hide. As the inner struggle continues with Jay teasing my skin with his seductive caress, a loud clatter behind me is enough to jump me from my feet.
I squeal.

The Author:

From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy… it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, ‘Cut’ had been completed.
