Saturday Sample

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

Susan won her bet with Robin when Kurt asked her to go to a party with him. Unfortunately, they drank too much and ended up sharing a bed. This scene is from next morning.

Susan wiped away her tears long enough to find her clothes, but the darkness made it hard to see much. She started crying again when she bumped her toe on a chair leg.

A gentle tap sounded on the door just as she zipped her jeans. “Kurt? Is everything okay?” came the whisper of their host.

Mr. Mendoza! She couldn’t face him! “Go and talk to him,” she hissed at Kurt who’d made no move toward the door. She gave him a shove, and he hurriedly buttoned his shirt and stepped outside. He didn’t close the door all the way, so she heard their conversation.

“Everything’s fine, Jose. Susan’s just embarrassed because she had too much to drink and ...and...had to stay the night. To tell you the truth, I’m a little embarrassed myself.”

Mendoza’s voice sounded kind. “Don’t be ashamed. It’s better to stay the night than to drive drunk. You had a good time, right? Take the lovely Susan home, and let her sleep it off. By tonight she’ll be her old self.”

The Secrets of Flight

The Secrets of Flight
by Maggie Leffler


GENRE: Women's Commercial/Historical Fiction



Estranged from her family since just after World War II, Mary Browning has spent her entire adult life hiding from her Jewish heritage. Now eighty-seven years old and a widow, she is haunted by a lifetime of secrets and fading memories of the family she left behind. Her one outlet is the writing group she’s presided over for a decade, but when a new member walks in--a fifteen year old girl who reminds her so much of her beloved sister Sarah--Mary is certain fate delivered Elyse Strickler to her for a reason.

She hires the serious-eyed teenager to type up her story of a daring female pilot during WWII who gambled everything for her dreams--and both their lives take flight in unexpected ways.

At times laugh-out-loud funny and at others heart-wrenching, this is a story of identity, betrayal, love, hope, and forgiveness.

From the day you were born,
you were a blessing.
You were a comfort and
inspiration to those around you.
You suffered enormous tragedies
and faced many challenges.
You suffered a great deal
and life as you saw it was over.
Each day seemed like an eternity—
every moment seemed everlasting.
You went in with your eyes closed,
but came out with them wide open.
You fell to your knees and asked,
why, why me?
Not realizing that your trials
would prepare you for your future.
Not knowing you were a blessed child
and you were called for a purpose.
Many obstacles came your way
and the enemy tried to bring you down.
He never wanted you to succeed,
let alone see the light of day.
Your cries reached up to God.
He said, You are my child.
No matter where you go,
I will be with you.
You are blessed.
Blessed you shall be,
and blessed you shall continue to be;
not only to yourself, but to others.
