    Summary

    Coven leader, Carol, has been single for too long. Aching with loneliness, she spontaneously turns a fascinating victim. Will this young woman make a proper mate? Can the newborn vampire adapt? More importantly, does the fledgling vampire even want this life in the darkness?

    Please note, I skipped a standard summary and any 'vampire' tags when originally posting Chapter 1. I tested the waters with the following teaser; the Chapter 1 comments beg context.

    I will add a summary later via edit. What do you think? This might be a one-and-done, a shorty of a few chapters, or who knows. Feedback, please.

    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    For over a century, two northern California farming families, the Airds and Belivets, have been at odds. They raised various crops over the decades, but both clans began to concentrate on growing and harvesting walnuts in the 1920s. Deadly gun violence haunted this feud in the 19th Century. Later, the weapons became words and societal backstabbing.

    Therese Belivet returns to the groves in 1967 to teach at the local high school. Low and behold, Carol Aird's daughter, Rindy, is in Therese's Honors English class. Will it be two cats in a burlap sack or a pair of lovelorn souls discovering romance among the Walnut groves?

    Summary

    Who knew leaving your journal in a random furniture shop would turn Therese's life upside down - in the best way possible.

    Or, Carol/The Price of Salt set in 2015. Therese is a college student and goes to Carol and Abby's furniture shop for inspiration for her finals project. Some events are from the movie, some are from the book, and some have been flipped around to play a better role.

    Summary

    And she could feel it. That familiar tug of her heartstrings, that leaping in her chest, the flutter in her abdomen.

    When Carol turned and caught her staring, she looked away, but not quick enough to avoid the blush that overtook her cheeks.

    Summary

    A desperate woman must elude two groups of pursuers: deadly foreign agents and her own pathetically deceived Federal and state law enforcement agencies. She needs to rest, heal, and refuel. Will a sleepy inn nestled among California’s ancient Sequoias provide respite? Can the lovely innkeeper mend this fugitive's shattered heart?

    Once again, I'm writing in third person limited from Therese’s perspective.

    Summary

    Via pluck and ferocity, a scrappy orphan escapes horror to ultimately be "raised by a village" in Depression-era Alabama. Therese Belivet finds love and purpose in a "Black Belt" farming community. In 1940, the high school graduate ventures to the sleepy port city of Mobile. Therese is thrilled to secure employment and lodging.

    At Mrs. Cleary's Boarding House for Women, Therese is drawn to a beautifully plain spinster. Therese finds Carol Aird's self-imposed shell hard to crack. As time passes, their city becomes a busy "wartown." Mobile's population grows twofold, as does Therese and Carol's passion for one another.

    Summary

    'Therese looked and saw, in the light that spilled from the house, a tear, like a shooting star, on Carol's cheek.' An album of scenes - across various locations and months and years - between Carol and Therese, rather like Therese's photo album in words. (Now incorporates two fragmented plotlines about Therese and her work and Carol and her Rindy, and how the two converge, or separate.)

    Extra scene: A new day 'In New York (February 1959) II'.

    Summary


    In the dark days of 1941, Britain’s Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) has a daunting mission; the pilots must ferry thousands of new or repaired aircraft to fields all over the British Isles. The newly formed and first “all women” Ferry Pool at Hamble, near Southampton, has much to prove. They deliver scores of different aircraft types several times a day, often in less than ideal weather conditions.

    Therese Belivet has just been assigned to Hamble. She knows no one. Fresh from training, she finds herself in the deep end. The last thing she needs on her plate is to fall in love, but her striking new commander, Flight Captain Carol Aird, is a delicacy the young pilot finds hard to resist.

    Summary

    Carol insisted the world was still where they had to live, but the world was not always the same as it had been the day before. Therese had understood this that morning in Waterloo. Living was a verb in the potential mode. That sounded like one of Carol’s epigrams, which had overawed Therese with their wisdom of implicit experience when first they’d met, and which she still loved to hear from Carol’s lips.
