About the book: 

When you want to do something good, sometimes you need to be a little bad.

Angelina Carr is a thief. Nick Aston is a corporate security consultant. With her special skills, and his professional experience, they’re uniquely qualified to bring down a small-time criminal. The real challenge arises when that simple task gets them mixed up with a big-time mob boss.

In order to solve the problem for good, Gina and Nick have to find a way to bring down the kingpin. Hopefully without anyone getting hurt....


She opened a file drawer and riffled folders back and forth, and then closed the drawer loudly.  Then she turned to the desk and picked up Volpin’s phone, careful not to get a dial tone.  “Hello, I’m calling about the status of that file we discussed,” she said in a normal speaking voice.

After a second or two of surprised silence, Nick’s voice said uncertainly, “Um, are you talking to me?”

“Yes, of course.”

“Oh.  Well, um, let’s see.  The file is about ninety percent installed.  Ninety-two percent... ninety-five... ninety-eight....  Okay, it’s done.  You’re clear.”

“Thank you, I appreciate it.”

“Gina, what is going on?  Is someone else there?”

“Yes, unfortunately.  But I’ll get that information to you as soon as I can.  Thank you.”  And she hung up Volpin’s phone loudly.

The small flash drive was already back in her pocket, so Gina picked up the folders she’d been carrying and walked out of the office.  Thing One and Thing Two were still in the outer reception area, and even with peripheral vision Gina could see they were showing her more interest than she liked.  She tried to sail past them, but Thing One moved to stand in front of her.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I grew up with stories:  stories told around the campfire each summer while growing up in New York state; stories read to me by older siblings; stories I read while pretending I, too, was old enough to go to school.  And stories I wrote to amuse myself and my family.

Years later, I’m still writing stories.

Since being graduated from college I’ve worked for small business, large corporations, and even the government.  I now live in North Carolina, far from those campfires of my childhood.   Writing is still in my blood, though, because when you have stories to tell, the characters won’t let you rest until you tell them.
