  • A Family Matter (2004)
    Scandal erupts in an eastern Kentucky town when an injured coal baron's estranged son comes home to tend his comatose father and falls in love with his father's new, young wife, Salina. In this modern adaptation of the ancient Greek Phaedra myth set in the late 1990s, Salina must choose between her professed vow of family vindication and her rapidly escalating attraction to her stepson.

    Salina Graves, recently married to a man twice her age, faces an agonizing truth--the betrayal of her father, Minos Drummond, by her husband, Lyman . But the truth of that betrayal lies in her deceased father's journal. Her mother's posthumous cry for family vindication leads Salina on a desperate search for the mysteriously missing journal. But her search is thwarted when her tyrannical husband is critically injured.

    When her attractive, but errant stepson, Mick Graves, returns home to tend his comatose father, Salina and Mick are drawn to one another. Warring with her illicit feelings for her stepson who now shares the ancestral home in eastern Kentucky where Lyman's Poseidon Coal Company fuels the economy, is Salina's determination to carry out her plan of vindication. Will she be able to find her father's journal, absolve her family name, and survive the metaphorical storm surrounding her relationship with her stepson?

    Can Salina continue to share the ancestral, claustrophobic home with the attractive yet elusive Mick while her comatose husband's life-or-death fate hangs in the balance? Will the lives of these characters be able to surmount the ill-fated, archetypal destiny inherent in the ancient Greek myth girding this story?

  • A Still Point in Time (2004)
    A brooch, a lighthouse, a seashore, a love that transcends time...

    Single, childless, and forty-three, college English professor Laura Bouvoire is determined to have a baby by in-vitro fertilization. But her plans to beat her ticking biological clock meet opposition when she falls in love with her thirty-year old college student, Dante Giovanni, a computer repairman determined to escape his trailer-park existence and the tedium of his blue-collar job. A devout Catholic, Dante is morally and ethically opposed to test-tube babies which he deems an aberration akin to abortion and "against the natural order of things." As Laura's and Dante's relationship turns to passion and passion turns to love, Laura's pregnancy becomes an issue that Dante must not only confront, but resolve. Will he be able to re-think his beliefs and realize he must make a choice between his values and his love for Laura?

    Soon after meeting Dante, Laura purchases an antique amethyst brooch identical to one she saw in a portrait by the 19th century artist/poet Dylan Leone Gordon. Touching or wearing the brooch precipitates her dreams and visions of lovers in another century. As the dreams intensify, she researches Gordon and the elusive woman whose face peers from his paintings. A poem by Gordon affirms her suspicions that past lives may be involved. Obsessed by dreams of lovers in another century, Laura delves into that past life. There, tormented voices from another age reveal century-old karmic debts... Voices that hint at Dante's role, as well as Laura's, in those debts...

    Have Laura's and Dante's lives been brought together for a purpose? Will the secrets from the past that Laura uncovers threaten to take it all away?
