Two women. The men they love. One desperate plan.
Pilot Tris Miles is finally getting the recognition she deserves. She is a trusted captain and confidante to her boss at Westin Charter Company, and mentor to her young, ambitious co-pilot Bruce. Tris is offered a coveted promotion and the opportunity of a lifetime—to fly a prestigious “angel flight,” transporting a critically ill woman from a remote town in northern Canada to the US for medical treatment.
But Tris needs more than professional success. Still alone almost three years after her lover Bron’s death, Tris meets Mike, a local pilot with a secret past he refuses to discuss. Their budding relationship stumbles when Mike gets hired by Westin Charter to compete for the promotion Tris was promised.
As Tris & Mike’s professional battle intensifies, their personal relationship deepens. Life is getting a whole lot more complicated for Tris, and it’s about to get worse as the angel flight embarks. No one could imagine what awaits them in Canada, and how each will have to fight for their lives on this mission of mercy.
Love. Loyalty. Obsession. What propels YOU?
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The hardest part of writing a novel is getting the first draft done. Editing is difficult, but at least once I have a first draft, I know where the story is going, and have a roadmap to hone and improve it.
That said, ANGEL
FLIGHT’s first draft came together in just six weeks. The story had been
banging around in my head for a long time, and it came out easily. But that
made the editing part a lot harder!
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Anything by Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and bands that I grew up with in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Yeah, I still like that stuff.
More current artists I enjoy include John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert, both with and without Queen.
Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
Absolutely. I would not publish a book that hasn’t been read by beta readers.
What book are you reading now?
“In The Shadow of the Banyan,” by Vaddey Ratner
How did you start your writing career?
My debut novel, FLYGIRL, was published in 2019. I first started writing that story in 1994. I had 83 pages, printed out on a dot matrix printer, that I carried around with me for twenty years until, in 2015, I finished a first draft.
