I missed last week. The week just got away from me. So here’s a little more of Heartbreak Hill: Ryan eased his leg into a more comfortable position. His knee ached in almost every position today.

Until today, that is. “Tara!” Leslie called from the back room. Her voice held a frantic tone Leslie never used. […]

Here is another excerpt from the work in progress Heartbreak Hill: Tara returned to her desk and placed the phone on a stack of files on one side of the desk, a little surprised Leslie relinquished it so easily. She must be feeling really bad. Tara couldn’t imagine working all these hours and being pregnant, too. […]

Here is another sample from Heartbreak Hill: Leslie’s steps wavered until she sank on to the cushion. “At least it comes and goes. Maybe I will lie down for a few minutes.” Tara watched as the color returned to her cheeks. She couldn’t be going into labor yet. She had more than a month to […]

From my current work in progress Heartbreak Hill: “Tara, I just don’t feel right.” Tara Mansfield replaced the phone in its cradle and swung her chair around. Leslie Schultz, her boss, pressed her palm against her back, forcing her growing belly to strain against her tailored maternity shirt. She had given up trying to button […]
