THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN'S HANDBOOK
Murder, suspense, sex--and some handy household tips.

IN BOOK 1 OF THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN SERIES:
Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one...and it happens to be government-sanctioned. She earned it the hard way: her husband was killed the day she delivered her third child. To avenge his death, she leads a secret life - as an assassin. But espionage makes for strange bedfellows - and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home…"

TOTLANDIA, Book 1 / Fall, The Onesies
(This is Book 1 of an episodic series.)

IN BOOK 1 OF THE TOTLANDIA SERIES:
The Pacific Heights Moms & Tots Club is the most exclusive children's playgroup in all of San Francisco. For the city's ultra-competitive elite, the club's ten annual spots are the ultimate parenting prize.But not everyone is PHM&TC material. The club's founder, Bettina Connaught Cross, adheres to strict membership rules: Moms only. No single parents or working mothers allowed. Membership is an arduous commitment. And there's no room in the club for scandal, bad behavior, or imperfection from the tots or their moms. In a world of power and prestige, no one has more than Bettina. And as every mom in Pacific Heights knows, you simply cannot cross her. But this year's admissions process is more rigorous than ever, pitting prospective members against each other to prove their mettle. But four of the six candidates vying for the remaining four slots have a secret that would knock them out of the running. Jade is a former stripper and porn actress, who has been absent for most of her son's life. Jillian's husband cleaned out their joint accounts and left her for his pregnant assistant. Ally never even had a husband--just a sperm donor--and she's hiding a high-ranking corporate job. And Lorna fears that her son may have special needs... just the excuse her sister-in-law, Bettina, needs to deny her entry to the club. Can these hopeful moms keep up appearances long enough to outlast the competition? Or will their chances--and their private lives--go up in flames?

Friendship. Lies. Seduction. Betrayal. Welcome to Totlandia.
