Story - The Light Fantastic
Between A Memory And A Dream
A bar owner rents to a lonely woman struggling to make ends meet.
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
A short Über story where 'Fractured Fairy Tales' mixes with 'The Twilight Zone' when strangers meet in a small town. The impossible becomes the possible when all the right ingredients come together. These characters may be revisited in future stories, their boundaries seem limitless. I felt rather... inspired to write something about unlikely acts of heroism, and the unlimited possibilities of the human spirit -- and beyond.
Not A Romantic Bone [Holiday Havoc Challenge]
Friends discuss what constitutes a romantic valentine's day.
When Arts Collide - with Julie Baker [Academy Valentine 2003]

Chloe And Sara Series

A prelude in which Chloe and Marcy drive around through eerie neighborhoods on their way to a Halloween party.
This is a humorous and romantic present-day Uber, set in a small Northeastern town on the shores of Lake Erie.Sara D'Amico has reluctantly returned to Stonecreek after a decade-long absence hoping to heal and rediscover her inner strengths. Immersed in the oddest of situations with an equally peculiar set of family members, plus new and old friends, Sara helplessly falls for the charms of the somewhat unpredictable local librarian.This story touches on the varied musical themes of 'We Are Family', 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go?', 'I Touch Myself', 'Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'... and especially, that we are all a little 'Crazy.'
The sequel to The Light Fantastic. Now it's an insufferably hot summer, the golf course is struggling, and Sara and Chloe are getting on each other's last nerves. Screwball romance always goes bump in the night, and day, in Stonecreek.
The Foursome [Academy Halloween 2002]
A Halloween tale in which Xena the Conqueror trades bodies with Sara and learns a thing or two about fun from Chloe.
