Wednesday Women: Jayce and Emma

Today, I'd like to offer you a glimpse into the lives of two of my own characters, Jayce Finney and Emma Curtis. They are the leading ladies in a free short story on Wattpad, Halfway Home. If you like, you can check it out here.

Emma's life takes a downward spiral when her girlfriend shoots a store owner and no one believes she was completely innocent in the matter. Emma makes it through betrayal and her prison sentence, and she is sent to a halfway house, where she does her best to stay under the radar and try to come to terms with all the ways her life will never be the same. Her goal is to be in her own apartment by Christmas--and she doesn't need anything (or anyone) to mess with that goal.

Jayce has just returned to work after an extended medical leave following a car accident. She is investigating suspected drug dealings connected to the halfway house, going undercover. Jayce needs a success, as much for her confidence as much as for her career--prove to everyone that she's back and at a 100%. She soon finds out who the players are, and that Emma is not one of them. She wants to protect her from the fallout, her motivation not all professional, but at the same time, she can't compromise her cover.

If you like mystery with a touch of romance, and a hint of the holidays even, Emma and Jayce's story is for you--and it gives you a pretty good idea of what I enjoy writing most--lesbian fiction with high drama and happy endings!
