Susan is a small town girl from a rigid but loving family.  She leaves home and pursues a career in the big city.  Overwhelmed with her career, she neglects her fiancé and her family.  The results are devastating and Susan finds herself accused of her fiancé’s murder and is tried and is imprisoned for life.

Her incarceration exposes her to women from many different walks of life who all feel they are there in prison unjustly. Each one has a harrowing tale of what got them there.  Some credible some pure fantasy.   Susan learns to define and manage the various situations that she encounters, and how to manipulate the varying personalities that she is forced to live with.  The one thing she has in common with the other women is they all claim to be innocent, and manipulated by the system.

After a myriad of tests and trials she finally settles into a group of five women who watch each other’s back.  Michelle, Nancy, Donna Georgianna and Pauline. Pauline is a lesbian and her friendship with Pauline tests all of her beliefs.  She realizes that Pauline is the one person that she can count on for complete trust.  Pauline promises to help her win her freedom, but Pauline gets her freedom first and Susan loses faith in her friends promises.

Susan goes through a life threatening illness and depression, and is giving up hope of ever getting out of jail.  Pauline comes through, and with the help of her cousin’s political connections, and she gets Susan a retrial.  Together they work to get Susan free.

After the dust settles, Pauline leaves Maywood so Susan can renew her broken relationships.

The ending will leave you flabbergasted and acquiescent at the same time.


Cops is the story of a young girl torn by multiple conflicting loyalties. First between her estranged parents whose separation was so bitter that her father left New York, and was completely absent from her life during her adolescence and most formative years. Her sister Anita and her brothers Carl and Louie grew up with their mother living in their Grandparents house.

Against her family’s wishes, she leaves home and school with the intention of saving her father from himself and alcoholism. Months of constant and devastating confrontations with her father left Lyndsie devastated and depressed by her own failure to help her father but too proud to return home, she seeks comfort from a policeman she meets by chance during an incident in a nightclub.  The policeman was near her own father’s age.

Her relationship with him exposes her to a myriad of complicated events and emotions that she is unable to handle.  Being thrown into a competitive environment far beyond her experience confounds her.  Her second devastating conflict was a test of loyalty between police partners. Her lover’s partner was much nearer her age and did not take his partners intentions seriously.

In the course of one year, Lyndsie goes from being an innocent and beautiful young girl to a depressed and broken woman on the brink of disaster.

The abyss of her despair leads her to making foolish and devastating decisions that she sees as the only honorable solution to her situation.


A memoire.

Loving, losing, struggle and survival. The journey.

We are born, we live and we die.  I have come to believe that these are the only certainties that exist.   We go through life plotting, planning and assuming, if not assuming certainly hoping that all of the things in our heads and hearts will happen the way we want them to.  We are taught to strive for and to expect our desires to be fulfilled. We prepare for life, or we think we prepare, based on our societies norms.  You grow up, go to school; or not, fall in love and get married; or not, have a family; or not. And when there’s the unexpected turn of events; to gain can be exhilarating, to lose: devastating.  Like a trip to hell, with no way back.  You are interrupted.  You and everything around you is interrupted.  You hear the words “carry on”, over and over again, but there is no carrying on.  There is nothing to carry on.  The blackboard is erased, and you stand there; chalk in hand not knowing where to begin. But you must.  Depressed, confused, and in pain, you search for the strength to move forward, you fail; and you search some more. We are tested.

Many years after her devastating loss, the youngest of her three sons went away to college.  They agreed to only buy used text books on 17th street, to save money. This semester, when she received the syllabus and booklist, with Kubler-Ross’ “On Death and Dying,” she was taken aback.  She read it many years before, and had put those words away.  Buried them deep.  They didn’t exist.

His dad’s picture stood on the desk in his room, but he had very little memory of him. He had just turned five years old.  She never talked about him.  Fourteen years later she still couldn’t talk about him. Instead, she wrote her story.

Odyssey is a journey through one woman’s struggle to reclaim her sanity, her family and her life.
