I’m honored to reach out to my readers with this holiday story. One reason is I’ve been able to tie up loose endings that began with Reconstructing Charlie, one of my first books with Vanilla Heart Publishing. Twin sisters were left behind; a secret needed to be revealed and so here it is.

Love and best wishes, not just in this holiday season but always.
Thank you for your support.

Charlie and Jimmy Costigan’s eight year old twin sisters, Celia and Carey, were abandoned in a private religious school in Utah years ago. Ten years later, they reach out to the kind aunt and uncle who raised their older sister and brother. An escape plan is made and their truly wicked mother is forced to face what she did by throwing away her children in order to gain her own freedom.

 

And it all began with…

The Catch

Tom Donnelly, once known as The Catch – every woman’s dream guy, has fallen down every rung of the ladder he once worked so hard to climb. On New Year’s Day, he realizes just how far he’s fallen, and makes a list of resolutions to change his life. He vows to regain the trust lost from his family, his law firm, and his friends – and maybe even find the right woman this time.

“I didn’t realize at the time while working as an actor in NYC, I’d become a sponge soaking up dialogue, setting, and stage directions. I learned many tools of writing during the years watching directors like Mike Nichols and actors including Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and Billy Crystal. And would you believe, I was Geraldine Ferraro’s stand-in leg model, my first job giving me entrée into all the Unions needed to work. When the sweet time ended, I began another career and creative juices flowed.”
