Book Description

47,471 story words.

Rosetta, a beautiful young senior, energetic and active her whole life, prepares for and undergoes a full knee replacement.  And moves, literally and figuratively, slowly through the process of recovering her mobility, seeing how her husband Arturo cares for her til she is well, and reflects on her years leading to where she is in life now.


"Rosetta" is the second work in my love / romance series of novellas and novels entitled "A Love Story."

Third in the series, "The Children," is now available.

The family's story then continues in "Slumming in Paris."

The Children's younger characters are also highlighted in a prequel-series of four short
stories, "The Children (Shorts)" : "The Concert" - "Art Day" - "At the
Beach" - and "Slumber Party."


Below is a little more about "Rosetta."

Relationships, love, and romance, are all part of each book, and in this second addition, the very frequent and important factor of having a major surgery, and how it impacts a relationship is explored.

The storyline in "Rosetta" overlaps the first book for about the first third of the book, providing interesting compliments and contrasts to Arturo's point of view of their meeting and other events, in "The Old American Artist..."

After that point, and especially after Rosetta's total knee replacement, the process of recovery, physical and emotional and mental, is explored through the first five weeks after surgery.

Rosetta and Arturo have been together for over thirty years. Will he be able to care for her 24/7 after her week in the hospital? Cooking, cleaning, bathing, laundry, being a companion? And what was that first week in the hospital really like?

Things do change in life, including love. But will their love change in a way to allow them to be the people they felt they were with each other before the recovery from such a major surgery? Or let their relationship at least evolve into something they still both value?

Well, this is a romance. And things do tend to end with the feeling of happily ever after. ;-)

The question is how will this happen to a couple with such a long history? And where will this leave them in their decades of history? And how will this lead into the next part of "A Love Story" series? - "The Children."

More About the Author

NEW: Over 50 titles available FREE in Kindle Unlimited.

Fiction, photography, poetry. Family, mystery, and (new) thriller fiction. Set in Austin Texas, Paris, and Vermont.

Images and poetry from all three locations.


As the oldest of six, a father of three, and a grandfather of five, and married over thirty years, I believe, in writing stories and poems, I've found a perfect outlet for my years of living.

I have been writing and creating pictures since high school in the sixties, and began writing more seriously in the late 70s and early 80s.

One of my more recent surprises has been to read a definition of Romance that seems to generally fit the majority of both my poetry and fiction: a central story involving the relationship of two people, and a generally optimistic and satisfying ending.

With that revelation, I now view Romance fiction in a whole new light. ;-)

But if I had to give one word about most of my fiction and poetry, and even my images, it's relationships.

The interactions of people, especially couples and among family, seem to have the strongest hold on me. That would also help explain why even in my poetry about teachers and nurses and others, it is the relationship aspect that usually is my focus.

The Processing my Fiction series on my site has more detailed specific articles that might be of interest.

Below, is more general information about myself. I hope you can take advantage of the half dozen or so titles I offer free for downloads, and will also consider and enjoy my other work. Thanks so much!
