Thomas Wolfe wrote ‘You Can’t Go Home Again’
Something Rachel Cord believed and lived by for nearly 21 years. She’d run away from those she loved who wouldn’t or couldn’t accept her as she was. That life was gone. She has no desire to revisit it.
Until Wendy Devlin, the love of her life, the woman she wants most to marry, gives her an ultimatum.
“Rachel, I’ll marry you anywhere. But I’m meeting your family first. That’s my deal.”
Now Rachel must decide if she can face old demons, old prejudices, or lose Wendy. Is it possible to go home again?
“Remember, my love, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.”
Wendy held me. I felt safe and loved. It's that killing part that worries me.
“She’s been shot. Someone shot her.”
About the Author
First, and foremost, I’m a reader. It’s a rare night I’m not tucked in with a book before bed. Books are as much a part of me, my DNA, as the Conarys, Dames, Longs, Fullers, Cousins and Chiltons on back to that first amoeba that tweaked to life in the long forgotten primordial ooze. And I try to write stories I’d like to read. I write many types of stories but private investigator Rachel Cord is my modern-day Cyrano de Bergerac striding through Raymond Chandler's mean streets. James Rockford in drag. She's a what-you-see-is-what-you-get woman who's not afraid to take chances or make mistakes and is willing to let the reader into her darkest moments as well as her accomplishments. She holds nothing back. I come from a long line of New Englanders and was raised on the sunny shores of Southern California. For 20 plus years I lived and worked in different parts of the country and the world courtesy of Uncle Sam. I currently live in Southern Georgia with my wife and two cats.
