"There's power in words. There's power in being able to explain and describe and articulate what you know and feel and believe about the world and yourself." -Tracy Chapman


What You Wish For


Rani Noir is a thirty-one year old co-creative director for a small advertising agency in the city. It's the end of the 90's, but she's had romantic ideals of finding Mr. Right since she was a child, when her father first spun the tale of Cinderella.

However, to keep Rani's head out of the sky is Rani's best friend Addison Caruthers, who pulls no punches in reminding Rani that true love doesn't exist, nor should she spend any more time wasted on trying to find it.

Rani cannot accept Addison's beliefs, so when she meets business owner and out lesbian Kendall Avery, Rani believes she has found her true love finally, despite that true love being a woman.

The attraction is mutual, and Kendall Avery (who's never been in love) gives herself wholly to the adventure. Unfortunately, in the midst of their incredible whirlwind of laughter, fun times, and inexhaustible sexual appetite for one another, Kendall becomes aware that she and Rani may be the casualties of Sharon Sweeny, a black market baby swindler with an M.O. strikingly similar to the real life Georgia Tann.

Follow Rani, Kendall and Addison on this journey of self-discovery, and experience with them the full spectrum of feeling that comes with getting what you wish for. 




We Walk in Partial Forms:

Kristen Lee Thomson is almost thirty and has an impressive career in real estate, she is content with her existence--or so she believes--albeit her mother's regular intrusion into her love life, intrusions that adversely affect the young woman. Kristen has at least found comfort and gratification in a non-sexual, nine year matrimony with Stephany Shae, her lifelong friend and pillar of strength & opportunity.
 Stephany persistently nudges Kristen into taking risks and living life to its fullest, and provides solace whenever Kristen needs. She wants her friend to be happy as much as enjoying life, and she'll go to great lengths to try and see that Kristen is. She has never interfered in Kristen's love life before; however, when an opportunity presents itself, Stephany follows fate and decides to risk betraying her friend by playing matchmaker just once.
 Twenty-four year old Phoenix Carlson's heart has been broken; leaving her devastated even after six long years have passed. She is a mystery Kristen is willing to explore even if she finds it virtually impossible to refrain from expressing her lust for Phoenix when they're together. Phoenix's frequent abstinence puzzles Kristen until the  reason unveils itself.
 Kristen's whole world is turned upside down suddenly and she finds herself struggling to hold on to a love that she's letting slip through her fingers as she is besieged with the pain of trying to understand and accept and come to terms with what they both will lose if they remain together.
 Just when Kristen thinks she has finally suffered enough, and is coming out to be herself again
to feel again, an unexpected twist happens: all of the emotions she had buried inside for the woman who had captured her heart from the beginning start to resurface




The Torture of Time:  

"The Torture of Time delivers an emotional roller coaster encasing the stories of young women maturing and grasping for love. Their trials are realistic and deal with issues facing today's couples. This story pulls no punches in showing romantic ideals crumble and the characters fumbling through self-destructive, rocky relationships, always searching for that elusive perfect fit in a partner. The story was enjoyable in its realism and thought-provoking in its delivery."  -- review excerpt  by Torie West -  The Romance Studio.



Way Out There: 

A mixture of 19 short and unusual tales from the unusual mind & pen of DK Ward.

"If what Proust says is true, that happiness is the absence of fever, then I will never know happiness. For I am possessed by a fever for knowledge, experience, and creation." -Anais Nin
