a novella of hard rock fiction
Aboard a rock and roll cruise in the Caribbean, Devyn Campbell sits at her little table and sells copies of her debut novel. She is surprised--and delighted--to learn a handsome rock star has become smitten with her. Too bad she's trapped in a stale marriage to a man who cheats on her. She finds out just what a creep her husband is when she returns home, and is subjected to the wrath of his guilt and discovery. Though her rock star is on tour far away, he arranges care for her, ultimately pulling her into his world of the working musician.

Proudly announcing my association with:
Welcome to my author website! Please take your time to browse around. As the self-proclaimed Queen of Hard Rock Fiction, you'll find plenty of excitement in my Blog, where I've posted musings, videos, reviews of CDs, and rock shows, not to mention early chapters (i.e. early drafts) of my novel, The Guitarist.
The Short Stories page includes two non-rock related stories, previously published in anthologies of the South Carolina Writers Workshop. There are plenty of rock-related stories on deck which may show up here from time to time, so stay tuned. You can learn all about me on the Bio page, and learn more (than you probably want to know) by connecting with me on Facebook.
So, grab a beverage of your choice, sit back, and enjoy the ride! \m/
British musician, Nicholas Trent, is a perfectly happy single man. He plays guitar, he’s toured the globe with world renowned rock bands and shagged his share of groupies along the way. He’s settled into middle age with a bit of celebrity, plenty of money, and comfort in his own skin.
Then he meets Caitlin Flynn, a southern woman on her own in New York City. A week together allows Nicholas to feel what he’s avoided all his life—love—but she pushes him away.
With the tour on a short break, he is persuaded to return to the “home” he’d fled as a frightened teenager. While there, he runs head-on into the very nightmares he’d escaped so many years past.
Resuming his life on the road with the band, a groupie’s act of violence threatens his very career and brings Caitlin back into his life. But Caitlin carries her own darkness to the show. Can they move past their histories of violence and grief to discover happiness in a world of music, new families, and road life?
The Guitarist is a story of how life can be rewarding if one survives long enough.
