Between Takes (Coming December 2022)
Simone Lavoie would be the first to admit she’s running from her problems, literally. She’s convinced herself a new job as an intimacy coordinator in a new city will give her a fresh perspective. Instead, problems on set only add to her worries.
Evelyn Harper has spent her whole life thinking she knows exactly what she wants: to be an actress. But when the fame gets to be too much following her breakout role, she’s torn between the ideal and reality. Then Evelyn discovers that Simone suspects a friend of trading bit parts for sex, and she starts to second-guess her growing attraction.
As the integrity of the show comes crashing down, Evie must stand up for her conviction to go for what she really wants in life, while Simone struggles to let go of a hard held past and give love a chance. As their feelings grow, it becomes harder and harder to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s an act.

The moment Lieutenant Alison Ash steps aboard the Persephone, she knows her life will never be the same. She will never again watch the sun rise over the asteroid belt, never again see Earth from a handheld telescope, and never again see her family.
In less than three weeks, the ship will dock at the Posterus and begin the most important journey humankind has ever undertaken. More important than discovering fire, creating language, or even abandoning Earth to live confined in biospheres among the asteroid belt over 100 years ago.
What Ash doesn’t expect is that by keeping her recent memory loss a secret she is jeopardizing not only the Persephone’s mission but humankind’s launch of the first ever generational ship. Nor does she anticipate her attraction to Captain Jordan Kellow, but both will change her life forever.
Captain Jordan Kellow knows all too well that change only takes a moment to rip through your life. Since the moment she escaped the Burrs and her father, her life has been a series of life-altering moments. She thought she’d built an inner strength that would see her through every obstacle, until she meets Lt. Ali Ash on the eve of her first mission in command. Her feelings for Ali have her past and future colliding, setting in motion a series of events that strands her crew in an unknown galaxy thousands of light years from home.
Now Jordan must decide which moment will define her future. Is she the captain of the Persephone, in command of her ship and her life? Is she strong enough to forgive her father for past wrongs? And most important of all, is she brave enough to fight for the woman she wants?
