In the Author's Words :: 
What inspires my writing is womanhood.  I write romance and my main characters are women in the midst of a life transition.  My characters have survived divorce, breakups, domestic abuse, 
and loss.  Yet they persevere and come out stronger than they were when the story began.

Title :: BrewGirl

So what's it about? :: 
Zoe’s 35 & works for a brewery as a marketing exec. She's a feminist who enjoys spending time with her BFF Ben. Then she meets Nick, a sales ingΓ©nue she’s forced to work with on a product launch. When she suspects that Nick's still carrying on with his playboy ways, Zoe uncovers a heart-wrenching secret that threatens to tear both her relationship and her family apart.

Content Sample :: After working on the campaign draft for hours, Zoe 
decided to sneak off to Guapo’s at three.  Ben was off but she needed to 
wash the taste of BrewGirl IPA off of her tongue. She pulled up to the bar 
and greeted Ramon, one of the bartenders.

“Pint of the chocolate lager, please,” she said, handing her card to Ramon.

He shook his head. “You know your money’s no good here, Miss Taylor. Mr. 
Ramirez would kill me.”

She winked with a smile, sliding her card back into her billfold. “That 
boy’s gonna go broke feeding me free beer.  I’ll still hit you with a 
monster tip, as always.”

As Ramon returned the wink and walked to get Zoe’s draft, she heard a voice 
to her right say, “Did someone say ‘free beer’?”

Zoe’s gaze was down as she stuffed her wallet into her purse.  “Yeah, I got 
it like that.”

“Not surprised,” the stranger replied. “I bet a girl with a rack like yours 
can get anything she wants.”

Instantly annoyed and prepared to tell him off, Zoe spun her head to face 
the rude and untoward stranger.  Her breath caught in her throat as she 
felt hypnotized by the green pools that posed as the beautiful stranger’s 
eyes.  As her gaze danced across his lean muscular frame, she noted that he 
looked nothing like the typical stuffed suit happy hour patron that pulled 
up to Guapo’s bar.  Her attention was brought to his lusciously pouty lips 
as he gave them a quick swipe with his tongue. She felt herself clench as 
he continued.

“I’m sorry. Please forgive my inappropriate reply, Miss…” He stuck out his 
hand to her.

Zoe snapped out of her hypnosis and shook his hand. “Taylor. Zoe Taylor.”

The man raised his eyebrows. “The Zoe Taylor? Of Windy City Brew?

“That’s me, live and direct.  And you are?”

He dropped her hand and took a sip of his own chocolate lager, toasting the 
pint glass in her direction. “Me? I’m Nick Webster.”

“The Nick Webster?”

He gave an eyebrow wiggle, turning Zoe on even more. “Live and direct.”

Zoe stared at him, still in disbelief. “So what happened to you this 

“I was sick,” Nick said before taking a sip and glancing at the 
Bulls-Knicks basketball game on the elevated television behind the bar.

Zoe watched him as he set the beer back on the bar. “Sick, but well enough 
to drink beer, I see.”

He looked at her as he pointed to the pint. “Hair of the dog.”

“So you were hungover – not sick.”

He nodded. “Same thing.”

“Except not,” Zoe replied.

He straightened his back, his pecs pressing through his thin white t-shirt. 
“Why’re you so concerned with my absence?  Did you miss me?”

Zoe shook her head with a haughty laugh as she reached for the beer Ramon 
set before her. “I don’t even know you.”

“Oh, you know me,” Nick said with a smirk. “Your reaction said it all.”

What's on the Horizon? :: 
I'm currently working on a women's fiction piece for query; it's about a forty-something NYC socialite returning to her small hometown in rural Michigan after her political husband comes out to her. 
(Yes, it's a romance.  Trust me.)  I also plan to self-pub a spin-off series from my Cougarette book series.
