Doggedly determined, Risky Williston strives to rescue every homeless dog in Simi Valley and beyond. Her small house and yard bursts at the seams with dogs of all breeds, some her personal pets and some waiting for her to find homes for them.

Disciplined, neat and orderly, Chet Jensen desires Risky, but can he cope with her bizarre and disorganized lifestyle?

Chet stirs old fears Risky has spent a lifetime repressing. She doesn't want to confront them, to face them again.

Is it possible for two people with such diverse values to have a lasting relationship?

About the Author

I wrote my first novel at the age of six. It was titled "The Mouse," and was two pages long—including illustrations! My mother saved that first edition and every now and then, I take it out and smile over it.
When my beloved husband of many years suddenly died, I'd come home after a long day of work and write. Writing allowed me to pour out all my sadness. Then, the more I wrote, the more I realized I would go on. I would be happy, I had a lot of living to do, and love stories to tell.

I'm published now in Romance novels and an anthology of short stories. But my first two manuscripts still reside on a CD somewhere in my house. I can't bear to erase them because they're mine, they're loved, and like a crazy relative one hides in the attic, they reside in a quiet, safe place.

A methodical undertaker falls for a quirky veterinary assistant with a houseful of rescue dogs, but past hurts and present challenges conspire to keep them apart. The characters in RISKY BUSINESS are wonderful--flawed but so likable. Mariska "Risky" Williston has a huge heart. If only she could escape the scars left by her unbalanced mother. Chet is a smart, good-looking guy who is handicapped socially by his unusual profession--he's a mortician. These two develop a reluctant attraction for one another, but one problem after another keeps them from really connecting. Through careful plotting and keeping a firm grasp on her characters' needs and motivations, the author makes the dramatic plot twists believable. She also does a great job with her settings. I felt myself right there in the middle of all the action. There's wonderful mix of drama and humor. However, this isn't a classic romance novel. Campbell's characters deal with some messy  personal issues. Campbell allows them to work through these in a natural and realistic way. This is the case right up to the end of the  book, which isn't as neat as you find in most romances, but it is absolutely true to the characters.    RISKY BUSINESS is a funny, touching love story with unexpected depth and emotional complexity.
