HOT New Release! Get your hand ready for this one!

I had the immense pleasure of working with seven fantastic authors on this project. I never imagined how much fun I would have with this project. When Hunter suggested it, we all had to sign up blind, agree to the terms and the project without knowing the theme or idea behind it. Once we agreed, we were given one word and the following instructions…


Let your imagination run wild.

Let me tell you that this group of authors had no trouble with that. Take a peek below for the outline and then a little story behind my short story “Secrets” and an excerpt. We already have NINE 5-Star Reviews. The anthology is only available for a limited time so please one-click a copy now while it is still $.99!

My story takes a look at the fact that we all have secrets. Secrets that shape us or control us but in this story it is one that will define the main character. The story actually started going in a different direction than what I had finished the story at. Bella’s secret changed as I developed the plot. Here is an excerpt. I hope you enjoy.


She stepped into her heels, grabbed the mask and her clutch, and called for the car

service as she stepped out of the hotel room. The black sedan would be waiting as she strolled through the hotel’s front foyer. As promised, the Buick was parked in the spot indicated, and the windows were tinted dark. The veil of secrecy, the masquerade that everyone puts on, was symbolized by the precautions of the night. Bella clutched the mask tighter as she got into the car. The fear picked up in her stomach – there was no turning back now. She heard the doors lock as the driver put the car into motion. Bella stared out of the window, pushing her irrational fears and hesitations to the back of her mind. She watched the anticipation and the joy that filled the streets of the French Quarter. She wanted to be that happy one day – let go of the secrets of her past. She pulled her clutch closer to her, and grasped the metal inside as the car wound through New Orleans toward its destination.

The car stopped a short while later, in front of a different hotel – one bigger than her

own. The grandeur of the old-French style was apparent in the décor of the façade. Everything was a façade, a masquerade of sorts. The door to the car opened, and a hand entered.

“Mademoiselle, your night awaits.” Bella took his hand and stepped gracefully from the car,

making sure the material of the dress did not show more than she wanted.

“Your mask,” the driver commented, and pointed to the last barrier of secrecy in her control.

“Right. Thank you,” Bella responded, pulling the mask to her face.

Bella took a breath in, and secured the velvet ties behind her head. Another breath, and she tightened her grip on her clutch. She paused to look around. Cars were coming and going. People were exiting and entering, dressed in black, and shielded from the world behind their masks. Everything was a secret. Everything was a show. Bella was ushered into a grand room; one used for conferences or weddings. A sign-in table graced the entrance, a man standing guard. Bella told the man the word she had been instructed to say, and he pointed her toward a long table covered with packages. Hand written envelopes filled the table and the length of the wall, all attached to various bags. Bella looked for hers, another name, and another word given. Finding it moments later, Bella flipped the gold envelope over and pulled out a card.
