Book Excerpt

I had only ever been with one man. And that man was my everything. Jay had way more experience in that department than I did and the kinds of experience he probably enjoyed would be far more than anything I would even know – let alone do.  Images begin flashing of the glamorous and sometimes sleazy looking woman. The remarks that Chris made about me going to him for seconds!

Oh god…

My whole body begins to tense as I feel Jays mouth kiss me gently behind my ear, surging the tremors to waves of anxiety.

“You don’t have to be scared of me. With me. I will take care of you. Always.”

Oh my.

His warm breath cascades over my skin and my body fights internally, with wanting to leap and wanting to hide. As the inner struggle continues with Jay teasing my skin with his seductive caress, a loud clatter behind me is enough to jump me from my feet.

I squeal.

About the Author:

From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy… it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, ‘Cut’ had been completed.

Penelope Price is a young woman who is utterly scarred and broken. She has been Cut. Residing with her best friend Rosalie since the sudden demise of her long term relationship, she finds herself severed from the world she once lived for. After months of Rosie suffering through failed attempts of trying to drag Penny back into some form of reality, finally, it happens.

A nightclub in Sydney leads to a strange encounter with Jay, a musician who at first meeting seems dangerous, but for unknown reasons there is an unconscious draw. When her inner turmoil dramatically ruins the night, it appears she may be worse off than where she started.

Will her wound ever heal?

Uninvited interest from the mysterious stranger messes further with Penny’s emotional state, resulting in more confusion than comfort. He seems to be hiding behind his own secretive walls and she isn’t sure she can trust him. The sudden return of her ex, Evan, who is persistent to fill in the reasons for their demise, exposes the shocking truth. Ultimately sending her into the lowest point of her existence.

Does she find her definitive end in the dramatic final scene of her story?
Has she been Cut?

Book Excerpt

“Please don’t go yet.” Oh my. His voice cuts through me, right to the core and I stand stiffly not wanting to make any sudden movements. As openly as I can manage without completely falling apart around him I tenderly whisper. “I can’t.”

I take a deep breath and muster as much strength as I can. I raise my hand from underneath his delicate hold and signal the oncoming taxi. Within seconds the car pulls abruptly into the kerb. I reach dramatically for the door handle swinging it open emotionally, and before I hurdle into the car I turn to look at him once more. “I’m sorry,” I mutter before getting in. “141 Harper Street, Annandale please,” I retort to the driver; and as the car pulls back into the street, all I can do is stare at his motionless body as we drive away. As soon as he is out of my sight the tears that seem to permanently hover just under the surface can’t be held back anymore. They flow uncontrollably.
