The Short Game is Here!

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

So today's the day! I gave myself a birthday present by releasing The Short Game today. This story would not have been written were it not for a boxed set planning group and took on a life of its own with two more stories in the pipeline. Readers seem to like the characters, so that's a plus. 

In the order of things, this will be my fourteenth novel, in addition to four published novellas and two short story collections.

The Short Game is on Amazon and Smashwords, so feel free to grab your copy. If your TBR list is at the toppling stage, then add The Short Game on Goodreads.


Garth Chu is on his way to having the most sought-after video production outfit in Kingston, Jamaica. Everything is lining up well, including his relationship with his current girlfriend—until his mother starts pressuring him to get married. He has no intention of giving up his freedom to fit in with his parents' desire for him to settle down and run the family business, but his girl, Nadine, has other ideas and starts a crusade to get Garth to propose. 

Anna-Lise Myers has been Garth's golfing buddy for fifteen years and resents Nadine's intrusion on their friendship. When Garth is injured in an accident, his friends rally round him, but things take an unexpected turn. Anna-Lise discovers feelings she's never admitted to having and Garth can't remember when Anna-Lise went from sister-friend to potential lady-love. A hot and disastrous interlude between Garth and Anna-Lise forces them to decide whether they want to risk their friendship and take a chance on happy-ever-after.
