For those of us with ex-anythings (husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, lovers), there comes a time in the relationship when you shake your head and wonder if you ever knew that person at all. The person you knew and loved would have never done anything like that...or would they?

Or are those closest to you like the sun -- what shines the brightest and gives warmth also has the ability to scorch and blind.

My novella, coming in February 2009 to Tease, The Dark Tarot, delves into that subject, when Karen Ferguson finds out more than she wants to know about the man she loves and married...



Karen Ferguson has it all…she’s on the verge of graduating, has a gorgeous husband, Tony, and an enormous trust fund.
Then, her husband, Tony, gets a letter. Bills came with unvarying regularity, the couple got the usual complement of junk mail, and Karen’s family inundated them with cards and letters. But, in the three months they’d been married, Tony had never received any personal mail. Until now…

When pressed as to its contents, Tony tells her his mother has died, and he’s inherited a dilapidated farmhouse in the country. His disinterest in the inheritance only fuels Karen’s curiosity. While Tony is out of town, she travels to his home town. Her plan is to use her newly inherited trust fund to renovate the house as a surprise.

However, the secrets the house holds will forever change the way Karen looks at life, at men, and especially at her husband…
