A Small selection of my books
Mainstream Fiction by Dianna Dann
April MacMillan is drunk, standing on the roof of Three River Terrace seven stories up, ready to jump to her death, when she remembers Camelia.
A chance encounter shatters what April always believed about her invisible childhood friend. Will the truth about Camelia save her? Or will it lead her back to the roof?
Both witty, and tragic, CAMELIA takes readers on a roller coaster ride of emotions as it immerses them into the mind of a rationalist, sarcastic, suicidal alcoholic.
A love story for the fractured and broken… a haunting coming-of-age tale of domestic violence, murder, and vengeance.
Bobby Jack Beaumont has been forgetting for as long as Magnolia has known him. It was easy to let him do it–nobody wanted to remember those things. Now he’s out in the scrub by the railroad tracks, lost and empty. He’s forgotten all of it–everything. Even Magnolia.
If she reminds him, if she tells it just so…they can fix the past and he’ll come home again.
But not every bad thing can be fixed by telling a different story.
Lenore Hawn lives in a cocoon, surrounded by her hoard.
When her young neighbor, Hannah, agrees to help her find something lost in the piles of junk she’s crammed into every free space of her house, she thinks she might finally be able to release the guilt and shame that has tormented her all these years.
The last thing seventeen-year-old Hannah wants is to dig through mounds of stinky trash in Mrs. Hawn’s house. But for that kind of money…it’ll be worth it. And what the old lady doesn’t know can’t hurt her.
After all, she’s already dying…
Two women. Two secrets. One road to redemption.
Romantic Comedy by Dianna Dann
The Downtown Divas Romance series
BOOKISH MEETS BOY
A smart-as–er… smart romantic comedy for book lovers, cat lovers, and nerds everywhere…
Six months after being dumped by the love of her life, Sophie Childers just wants to go back to being an introvert. She was happy spending her days at her grandfather’s shop, Bookish, and her nights curled up with her cats and a good book.
But once Reese Fuller stumbles into her life–or she tumbles into his–she is suddenly caught up in the social life again, brunching with the Downtown Divas (the boss girls she never considered friendship material before), playing matchmaker to nerds, starting up The Great Antiques War of Historic Downtown Strawbridge and worse, desperately trying to find homes for her darling colony of stray cats before Reese chases them off with his new-store renovations.
Can a cross-genre kind of girl really let herself fall for a cat-hating thriller reader?
PARI AND THE GHOST WHISPERER
Psychologist Pari Logan does not believe in ghosts. When Ghost Whisperer Sam Preston shows up claiming her office is haunted by the famous ghost of Downtown Strawbridge, she wants nothing to do with him or his ghost-hunting nonsense. But all of Downtown Strawbridge is caught up in ghost hysteria. Worse, her friend Melissa Stathem has a ghost story of her own and isn’t happy to be teased about it. Before she can say, “Boo!” Pari finds herself drawn into Melissa’s challenge to the Downtown Divas: Attend all the Ghost Whisperer’s events and if they still don’t believe in ghosts by Halloween, she’ll stop pestering them.
Being thrown constantly into the path of the Ghost Whisperer who, for some reason, she keeps kissing, is the last thing Pari needs. No, what she needs is a man who is her type: professional, serious, and rational. A man like gorgeous Eric Lawson.
Who will win Pari’s logical heart? The perfect guy? Or the one she caught on his hands and knees peering under her office door looking for a ghost?
