As a thank you to my 100 (101) supporters, I'm giving you a tidbit from Chapter 1 of my upcoming romantic comedy novel, *Secret Shopper* (out March 2013). The main character is Phoenix Lizama Farmer.
"I never wanted to move to California from Guam. I didn’t like shifts in my universe. I didn’t want to change my Facebook status from married to single. I had convinced myself that I could take Bradley back even after he cheated on me. Jem, short for Jemima, was an agent in his real estate office who doubled as his part-time lover. Nix, short for Phoenix, was the gullible wife who thought that dropping thirty pounds was the way to save the marriage. Phoenix is my name."
