The Secret Life of a Housewife

Housewife, Joyce, appears to be living the American Dream. She has a successful wife, Lisa Carefield, three intelligent kids, and lives a life of wealth and privilege. Yet all is not as it appears in this upper-class household.

Being married to Los Angeles’s top defense lawyer has Joyce trapped in a loveless marriage. To stay sane, Joyce indulges in promiscuous pleasures and recreational drugs. Yet, juggling a double life is taking a toll on not only Joyce but the rest of her family.

When Joyce’s teenage daughter comes home pregnant, it sets off a series of events that unearth not only all of Joyce’s secrets but the skeletons in her wife’s closet as well.

Secrets brought to light force Joyce to look in the mirror and face the inner demons she has been running from for years now. Set on a path to self-discovery, Joyce begins to see the turmoil her actions put on her family. While also discovering the love she still has for her wife.

Under the pressure of being married to Lisa Carefield, Joyce lost her voice, and this is what she needs to get back.

Will Joyce be able to discover who she is still under the constraints of her marriage? Or will Joyce have to find herself by divorcing her wife? Will she ever be able to find love again? Or will she spend the rest of her days thinking of what could have been?

Book one in a two-part series. Read Lisa’s story, book two, in The Secret Life of a Career Wife.

WARNING: This novel is intended for mature audiences and not recommended for the faint of heart. Readers discretion is advised.

Sequel to The Secret Life of a Housewife.

Career woman Lisa has a life most would envy, yet nothing about her world is as it seems. Even her wife does not know the true nature of her career. Of course, a rift is felt when Lisa's power grows beyond anything her law firm could offer. Control over the masses comes with her new role in society, yet it is this same control Lisa losses in her home. With a wife who is always cheating, children that are running wild, and a marriage which seems to be slowly disintegrating as more years pass them by, it is a wonder why Lisa puts up with it all?

That is the question, after all, why...

Why does Lisa stay? Why doesn't she want to let Joyce go? And why is Joyce so hell-bent on believing that Lisa is evil?

In marriage, there are two sides to a story, and now it's Lisa's turn to explain hers.

Lands End

Eileen's life is everything she thought it would be. She has a fabulous career as a zoologist, lives in the city, has amazing friends, and a family she adores.  Eileen never thought she'd live to see herself so happy. Sure, her living situation is not ideal, and living in the city is expensive, but  Eileen could not be happier with her life. 

Alta is one of San Francisco's top real estate agents. She's great at her job and finds fulfillment in making a sale. As a faithful Jewish woman, Alta never pictured herself living so far from her family and single at the age of thirty-five, yet this is where Alta is in life. With pressure coming from her mother and biological clock, Alta feels a sense of anxiety about never finding the right man for marriage. It's just that the thought of being married causes Alta more stress than the idea of never having children. 

When Eileen and Alta's paths keep crossing, they strike up a friendship. Both women have so much in common that they find it hard not to become instant BFFs. Yet, this friendship becomes blurred when Eileen finds herself in need of a new home, and Alta offers up her guest bedroom. 

Even though friendship is all the women wanted, they can't help but feel more for each other. Yet, with imposing family, religious beliefs, and meddling friends, they can't help but think that loving one another is too hard. 

Will love win? Or will the Eileen and Alta find that they can never be together freely? 

Beyond the Vines

There are not many women like Celeste in 1918. She owns her own home, runs her own business, and refuses to give up this power to marry a man. Widowed at twenty-seven, Celeste has spent up all her child-bearing years to run the vineyard inherited to her. Due to her wealth and status, Celeste is a prize many men want to win. Many have tried. All have failed.

Willamina, Amina, is down on her luck. After her husband dies in the war, Amina marries Gus to ensure her son has a male figure and their survival. However, Gus turns out to have an awful temper, making Amina flee in the middle of the night with her son. With little money, Amina and her son must hitch-hike their way to Washington, where her family lives. It is Amina's last ditch-effort to ensure their survival.

While driving to the market, Celeste comes across Amina and her son, hitch-hiking. Celeste picks up the stranded pair and instantly understands Amina's situation. Amina finds herself amazed by Celeste's independence and wishes she could have her own. Celeste informs Amina that she can and invites her to move in and work at the vineyard.

Being a working mom is unlike anything Amina has ever experienced. Days are spent picking fruit, and evenings are reserved for her son. Amina finds herself exhausted with the hectic schedule and questions if she should move to Washington to find a husband there. What stops Amina from returning to what is comfortable is her freedom and friendship with Celeste. While different, Amina has never experienced living somewhere so fancy and a bond like the one she has with Celeste.
Rumors around their community regarding Celeste's personal life and the relationships she keeps with women spark Amina's interest. Amina finds herself drawn to Celeste. And begins to feel emotions unlike anything she's experienced before. And when Amina realizes that the rumors around town turn out as right, she wonders if there is a way Celeste might show her what it is like to love a woman.

Will Celeste and Amina be able to love one another and build a unique family? Or will an unaccepting community shatter their yearning to love?
