Q.C. Masters

Q.C. Masters lives among the lush greenery of the Pacific Northwest along with one well-adjusted cat, one neurotic cat, one gentle labrador/dalmatian, three brilliant young ones and the most beautiful woman in the world. Writing time is stolen away from family affairs, travel, avid movie time, and, oh, that pesky day job.

The Path Not Chosen

What do you do when you meet someone who changes everything you know about love and passion?

Paige Harlow is a good girl. She's always known where she was going in life: top grades, an ivy league school, a medical degree, regular church attendance, and a happy marriage to a man. So falling in love with her gorgeous roommate and best friend Alyssa Torres is no small crisis. Alyssa is chasing demons of her own, a medical condition that makes her an outcast and a family dysfunctional to the point of disintegration make her a questionable choice for any stable relationship. But Paige's heart is no longer her own. She must now battle the prejudices of her family, friends, and church and come to peace with her new sexuality before she can hope to win the affections of the woman of her dreams. But will love be enough?

A Girl Called Shine

Shine is pure lesbian, all about the feminine. She is a petite, confident, and wily high school senior, and at the age of seventeen has already honed her skills of seduction and manipulation. She uses these skills to fulfill her selfish gratification, leaving behind her a wake of broken hearts. Love for Shine is a fairytale dream that serves only to sink hopeful hearts, and for her a con to seize the shallow affections on which she thrives.

Yet deep below this aggressive facade lies another dimension, a deeper dimension that Shine refuses to acknowledge, one that will ultimately force her to reevaluate her life. The trigger to her crisis is the arrival of Abby Smith to her school, a tall, red headed Texan would-be soldier who instantly steals Shine's heart. Through Abby, she rediscovers her capacity to love, and at the same time matures to see her past actions in a whole new light. But Abby's been hurt before, and when she learns of Shine's true nature, she severs the relationship.

Together with her crew and gay counterpart, Rudy, Shine must figure out how to prove to Abby that her feelings are genuine before the wreckage of her noxious past returns with a vengeance to destroy her future.

Abby's Scar

Abby Smith was your average high school tomboy, tall and gruff with a head full of fiery red hair.  So what could trouble such self-reliant young woman?  How about her best friend Cindy who's insistent on her getting a boyfriend?  Yet Abby can't connect with anyone Cindy sets her up with.  Then one day Cindy uncovers the reason.  “Oh, my God!  You're gay!”

For anyone else that would be a problem, but for Abby's family that was completely and utterly unacceptable.  So she'd better be positive.  But how does one know for sure?  You need a test, of course.
