Janeshia James is confused and bitter about love, but she is not confused about her drive to succeed. She is a beautiful, ambitious woman and she enjoys her career, as director of a prestigious nonprofit in Silicon Valley, California.
Walker Perrault is a geek. He’s imposing in stature, but he is also handsome and very intellectually inclined. Walker had given up on love. He was looking for the one true love of his life. She slipped through his fingers when he was a boy. Now, he’s all grown up. After seeing his former love at a fundraiser Walker wants to get back into Janeshia’s life.
When things start to go terribly wrong with the nonprofit Janeshia works for Walker is called in to run the day-to-day operations of the fundraiser.
The proposition wasn’t what she had expected.
Her destiny aligned her against three formidable men, one with the knowledge to take away her position, one with the power to take away her heart and one with a deep dark secret that could change her life forever.
Will Walker lift the veil of deception and expose the truth to her before it’s too late? Or will a dark secret from the past change their lives forever?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
My writing experience takes the experience of having lived in Silicon Valley and seeing the Geek Man in a different light. Though they are highly intellectually inclined they are not limited in the attributes of Hunky, Handsome, Maleness and imposing statures. These are the true Geeks you’d see daily in the Land of the Geek – Silicon Valley.
Also I took inspiration from the lush vivid grandiose landscape of the magnificent California landscape. From the, breathing landscape stretching from the beautiful panoramic views of breathtaking Mount Hamilton, in the heart of Silicon Valley to the magical pull of San Francisco, Oakland and Monterey California.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Be persistent and write daily even a short paragraph or two is writing. The stories will come. They are all in your head. And never give up.
And remember what Ernest Hemingway said.
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was.” –Ernest Hemingway
