I have a second story out in ebook form from JMS Books.
False Creek Ferry. Oooh look – a cover!
Beth and Leigh are total opposites. Beth has a steady job as an accountant, a reliable income, and a path up the corporate ladder. Her girlfriend Leigh lives for the moment, working on the ferries in False Creek, Vancouver. She eschews a conventional job, preferring freedom over a steady income, and her big heart means she often has very little for herself.
Can this mismatched pair find common ground?
You can read a longer excerpt over at JMS Books.
I’m rather fond of this story. Leigh and Beth are fictional, but the bright little ferries that bob like toy boats on the water, are not. I stayed at my sister’s apartment on False Creek a few years ago, and used the little ferries often. The car stayed in the parking lot and it didn’t even cross my mind to take a bus. I’d walk or take the ferry, or both. So maybe Leigh isn’t so fictional after all – there’s a bit of me in her, maybe more so than my other characters.
I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
