Hey Reader Friends,

I lost my car, my home as an inhabitable residence, my audio booth, my sound equipment for narrating, and most of my furnishings and appliances in the Vermont floods of July 2023. I have a large deductible for the insurance on my structure, none of my possessions are covered b/c of the industry's "natural disaster" clause, and I'm looking at a long road to rebuild. To help support those efforts, I'm writing this novella, set in my favorite town of Bad Dog, filled with heart, humor, long-lost-love hugs, and a pig named Pippa Jane (in honor of my sweet little dog who almost lost her life in the flooding, but is mercifully okay).

If you have the capacity to support my efforts with a pre-order, I'd appreciate it so much. And if you don't, good vibes are always welcome. As always, it's my pleasure to entertain you and to provide a sweet escape I know I need right now. Maybe you do, too.



About the Book

Truth or Dare: Tell the One-Who-Got-Away that you're still madly in love with him OR spend the night trapped with him in a hunting lodge that's about to be swept downstream?

Ha! Trick Question. I get to do BOTH! Because when it rains, it pours.

First, I call Theo McGuire to tell him that I've always loved him and I always will--at least for the next few hours until Pippa Jane the Pig and I are swallowed by the floodwaters. Then, I open the second story window when Theo comes knocking in his kayak, in a likely doomed attempt to save us.

Soon, we're trapped in the cabin where we had our first time fifteen years ago and all I can think about is how much I wish I could turn back the clock. If I could, I'd never let this fiercely kind and sexy-as-hell man go. 

Since this could be The End, we agree to make our last night a night to remember.

But what happens when morning dawns, we're both still breathing, and I can't bear to think of a life without my favorite McGuire?
