A Love Story

One bad pitch can change the whole game


Not to mention your life....


Zach Hiller was an ace pitcher for the New York Yankees until the day he lost everything in a catastrophe that he now remembers painfully as “The Curveball Incident”. Then, after two years of hiding from his past— spent mostly in Dublin, serving beer to tourists and throwing a stress ball against the walls of his messy apartment—his life goes up in flames once more, this time when an American named Emma Crawford walks into his pub and immediately takes to his tidy non- existence like a sunshine sledgehammer. How is he supposed to stay depressed, not to mention incognito, when this beautiful, stubborn, and funny woman is tearing down all his defenses? Emma has it all, including a brand-new fiancé, degree, and opportunity to explore every corner of Ireland for a summer. But all it takes is one chance encounter with a mysterious and brooding bartender from Texas to make her start questioning everything she thought she knew about herself. Together they have enough problems to fill an ocean. So why is it impossible to even consider spending the summer apart?

This title is book 1 in The Curveball Incident Series.

Curveball Wedding novella---cover for Kindle 3-13-23.jpg

A Wedding Novella

Zach and Emma are getting married!


Everything should be perfect...and then the guests showed up.


Zach should be having the best weekend of his life: He’s in intensive training, working to take full advantage of the opportunity he’s been given to recapture his old spot on the Yankees, and he’s getting married in a romantic ceremony on the beach to the love of his life. Emma should be in heaven too. She’s marrying her soulmate, plus she gets to do what she loves best: read guidebooks and plan a series of excursions for their wedding guests.

The weekend should be absolutely perfect…but instead, everything is a total disaster. Emma’s family can’t accept that she broke her engagement to Jim, and they don’t trust that Zach is going to be a worthy partner, given his past. As if getting ripped apart by half the wedding guests weren’t bad enough, Zach’s got problems of his own, since the baseball world isn’t exactly lining up to welcome him back into the fold.

With everyone against them and nothing working according to plan, how can Zach and Emma launch their new lives together? This novella is a follow-up to the book Curveball: A Love Story, where Zach and Emma’s story began.

This title is book 1.5 in The Curveball Incident Series.

He was a rookie with a bright future


Until that one pitch came along....


One game, one pitch. That’s all it took to change the course of Tommy Layton’s life forever. One minute he’s a rookie phenom burning it up in the major leagues and contending for Rookie of the Year. A split- second later, he’s on the injured list, deeply depressed, and trying to figure out how he’s going to get back everything he’s lost.


Lucy Valente understands all too well because she’s lost everything, too—her parents, her career, her money, and, most of all, her sense of hope. A chance encounter ignites a fire for both of them, but they’re stuck in the lowest valleys of their lives, so the timing couldn’t be worse. Lucy can’t seem to embrace the love and happiness she knows Tommy represents. And while he wants to give her the space she needs, he also realizes their chance to be together is quickly disappearing. How can they find their happily-ever-after when it feels like their happily-right-now is impossible?
