Readers who enjoyed The Godfather and Fifty Shades of Grey will love this story about Carla, whose interior decoration work opened doors to shady designs. In 1973, she met Roy, a wealthy movie theater owner, who hired her to refurbish his movie houses. This partnership led to their marriage.
Soon, the boss of a major porno mafia admired her work, and then his wife hired Carla to redecorate their Hollywood mansion. There, she befriended other lonely wives. When Roy joined that mob, he became deeply involved in pornography as well as murder. He dragged Carla into that criminal element with himself when greed raised its ugly head.
After she witnessed an assassination, Carla could no longer question the power of a mob boss's wife. And now, Roy's infidelity might cause his wife to stray. Or would his uproars drive Carla to a mental breakdown first?
Or did Roy just dig her grave?
“This is a spellbinding dance of drama and intrigue set to the music of mafia and porno, with haunting lyrics by a woman.” (Anon.)
BIOGRAPHY I've always loved to write, tell stories that I made up, and tell jokes. I love to make and see people laugh. My life has not been filled with laughter, so I understand well the hurt that's in somebody else.
To relax from writing, I enjoy creating and working with my hands. Silk and dried flower arranging, sewing, and cooking have been good hobbies for me. As a long-time single mother, I learned to do household plumbing, carpentry, and electrical work.
I was a beaten, physically, and verbally battered child, and then wife. It was with time and my faith in God that helped me overcome this and become strong. Also, I have suffered from life-long bipolar disorder, manic depression, epilepsy, and borderline personality disorder. The depressions were sometimes suicidal ones, and there was nothing I could do but bury myself in a deep, dark hole and wait until it was over. (Or, overdose on pills and booze.) Again, my trust in God and His words saw me through these times.
What I write about is what I have experienced and lived through. However, I am thrilled that the Lord has blessed me with a prolific imagination, so stories come easy for me. This one is based on actual happenings, although, I had to change and elaborate on some material for my protection since some of these people are still around and functioning. I certainly value my life, however, others may not.
