From the Author
This was my first novel, and it is by far my most favorite. Through writing The Fiche Room, I discovered so much about life and love from the characters. The response from readers has been overwhelmingly supportive! I've had many tell me the book has changed their lives, has helped them come out to their families and friends, and has helped them be more true to who they are meant to be in this wonderful life. This feedback has fueled my passion, and has been the catalyst for my three additional love stories.
My goal when I set out to write The Fiche Room was to create a story that could resonate with anyone struggling to live his or her life in its truest sense. It is meant to be a sweet love story. I decided early on that with this one, I would focus on the buildup of love, rather than the physicality of sex. The story has sexual innuendos, but is not erotica. This one, as one reader put it, "is sexy without the erotic sex." That being said, I love feedback, and encourage it. I also realize I will receive both negative and positive. I can appreciate both. However, I'd be remiss if I didn't correct a couple of factual inaccuracies pointed out in a review: by no means are there '10 million straight sex scenes' or '20 pages of slang for penis'. I just wanted a chance to set the record straight on that.
This book is about tender love between two women, and I hope you will come to discover this for yourself. Feel free to sample it first on Kindle!

Well into the 21st century, I must wonder if educated young women are still this conditioned to make emotional door mats of themselves, or to tolerate the dismissive (sometimes abusive) attitudes and over-developed egos of the men they ally themselves to. One would think we've all learned at least a few valuable lessons from 60 years of feminism and women's liberation. Or maybe not?
Despite is loose ends and stereotypes, I found The Fiche Room to be very readable and well-paced. If my daughters were still in their teens and forming their expectations of relationships, I wouldn't hesitate to offer it to them. I will read some of this author's other work, before deciding whether or not I'm a fan.
I really enjoyed this book. Both women are very likeable and very "every day". I say that meaning neither of them are super model beautiful or genious stockbrokers or volitile special ops heroes. These are the type of charachters that I find easy to relate to so it's easy for me to identify with their points of view.
I was really impressed that the author created a character like Emma who was born to wealth, yet wasn't consumed with a wild sense of entitlement.
Here's the thing; this book is about falling in love. When any two charachters fall in love there is going to be conflict, fear and tears. In The Fiche Room, the two charachters who fall in love happen to both be women. This, of course, generates the "conflict" in the story. In my opinion this love story crosses gender boundaries because it really is about the love between two souls or hearts if you will. Emma and Haley could have been a man and a woman or a man and a man.
I think that the author did a fantastic job in ushering Emma through her sexual discovery. Nothing sounded preachy or political. Emma falls in love with a woman - what's she going to do.
Emma's fiance is quite the homophobic stereotype, but I got over it.
I also was very impressed with how sensual this story is. The quiet scenes between Emma and Haley ooze sensuality and it comes from great writing that makes holding hands feel like the sexiest thing in the world.
This is the perfect poolside book!
If you are looking for more sex or action etc. then try Gerri Hill or Radclyffe.
I read Tangerine Twist by Carr and didn't find it nearly as satisfying. It has high drama and lots of sex, but I didn't like the main character. For me that's a deal breaker.
