The world is stacked against Fauna Somers. Constantly at odds with her family, she struggles to make a career as a Black woman to become a top chef in a male-dominated field. A chance one-night stand leads her to buy an old diner to forge a new path.

Dodge is torn between his father’s expectations and an ex-wife who regularly drifts in and out of his life. His passion is custom artwork for motorcycles and cars; his regret is losing the woman he met at a hotel bar for a single night.  

Against the backdrop of roaring engines and the vibrant Dragon Runners MC world, can these two kindred spirits reignite their flame and find the happiness they've both been yearning for? Get ready for a heart-revving ride of romance, redemption, and the ultimate pursuit of love in Dodge.


“I don’t do this. I’m not a slut. I don’t sleep around with strangers.” Words poured from my mouth as a myriad of emotions hit me, embarrassment being the most predominant one. “I’m not into fucking random men I meet in bars. One-nighters. Dammit, I can’t believe I let you do that much.”

“Hey, darlin’, slow down. Yeah, I went down on you, but I didn’t do anything else. It sounds to me like you had a shitty night and needed a break. I do not mind at all and given the circumstances, I was your safest route.”

He kissed my forehead and moved to let me get up. It mildly disappointed me he didn't kiss my lips as I wanted to see how that felt. Probably best he didn’t, as I also had the morning breath of a dead goat.

I cleared my throat as I viewed that elaborate back tattoo again. ”Hey… uh… this is really really embarrassing, but… well… you know my name, but I don’t… um…”

He turned and smiled as he picked up the phone receiver. ”Call me Dodge.”

I've had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I'm a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it's only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I've spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn't mean I'm pigeon-holed into one mold.  I've been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, "Life's too short to ignore the opportunities."   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!
