Author: Brenda Moguez

Genre: Women’s Fiction

When Stella Delray unexpectedly loses her job a week before Christmas, which is also the anniversary of her husband’s death, she is forced to stop talking to his ashes, come to terms with her loss, and get her life back on track for her young son’s sake as well as her own.

Now she’s working as an admin for a retired Broadway star, bookkeeping for an erotic video production company, and writing love letters for the mysterious “Oaklander.” Adding to the craziness of her new life, her monster-in-law resurfaces and the father-in-law she never met shows up on her doorstep. With the guidance of her best friend, Bono, Stella will learn to redefine the rules she’s always lived by.

Snippet

Quote Jon Petz:

 

In what ways has your perception of time changed as you’ve grown older? As performers or speakers we have curtains that open for a small window of time. We have to make the most of that time in order to build an emotional connection, share new perspectives and create an experience rather than meeting expectations. But, in reality, all of our time is like this in that our curtains are open but we never know when they might close.

We will never have more time than we do right now! So, why not now? Make it happen before it’s too late or we’ll miss the opportunity to experience, act, feel, learn, participate, connect and LIVE! Work hard doing what you enjoy but ALWAYS take the time to be a part of something bigger—your purpose and passion.

Take it all in as life is NOT a dress rehearsal and you don’t know when your curtains will close.

Book Excerpt

Cleptus Chapter

Caderyn stopped at the fifth apartment. From within there was scraping and a woman shouting as if she was on her last nerve. He counted the doors to make sure he chose the right place as the woman grew angrier, her shrill orders coinciding with louder scraping. Then came what approximated as someone spanking a naked bottom, a child bawling. He raised a hand intending to knock then chose instead to scratch his forehead.

Wrong casa. Had to be. Even if Cilo got married in the months since they last saw each other, the cleptus would hardly abide a ready-made family, not with his profession.

“Cilo?” Caderyn yelled. And again. Once more.

The door swung open. A feral-looking brunette glared out, her bony body sporting a loincloth and a breast-strap. The cesta—a poorer, untailored version of a strophium—flattened her tits to the shapes of empty waterskins and cut into her sides.

He mumbled, “Cilo?”

“Not here. You go.” She slammed the door in his face.

Miserable cunnus. Caderyn knocked, waited, knocked harder.

The woman again answered. Rosiness replaced the sallowness of her cheeks, blue eyes shining bright as an ocean on a sunny day.

“Cilo,” insisted Caderyn.

Not here. You go.”

“Where is he?”

She gritted and bared brown teeth. “Not—”

“Here and I should go, aio. First tell me my friend’s whereabouts.”

“Friend dead. Clepta corpse.”

Her assertion was a blow in the gut. “Dead…? When? How?”

“What when-how matter?” She tapped the side of her head. “You thick.” Then sniffed. “Phew.”

The door’s slamming boomed throughout the hallway. He lashed out with his foot, kicking the entrance open. There was a thud. A shriek. Before the woman could gather herself and come out from behind the door that had knocked her down, he barged into a room wherein a young girl rested upon a urine-stained mattress. Gouges marred the floor in front of her, the spike she had used clutched within her tiny fist. Snot ran over her lip. He scanned the wall and saw the hole for the spike from which the thief had hung his tools. The lone painting of harenarae fighting was absent as well. Like the tools and art that were gone so were the articles of clothing the thief folded and stacked under the window overlooking the avenue Caderyn had traveled.

The woman crept from behind the door wiping blood from her nose. “You no belong here. See, friend dead. Verum.”

A mouth that had gone dry turned his words into thick utterances. “For how long?”

“Last full moon.” She pushed at his chest. “Daughter me live here now.”

He retreated to the hall on heavy legs. “What happened?”

“Caught stealing. Died in—how you say square arena?—quadratum. But where make no difference. Neither when-how. Corpse never rebirth. You” —she waved as if shooing a fly— “go.”
