Brooklyn and Bo, each unhappily married to others, must decide whether to stay with their spouses or give up everything for their love. Brooklyn’s husband and Bo’s wife would try everything to break them apart and it was then Brooklyn finally confronted her own demons and came clean with everything and everyone in her life… even herself."
Excerpt from "Home Wrecker I":
“I had just turned thirty. That was enough in itself to be depressed about. I never thought I would be this age and feel this worthless. I was supposed to be “somebody.” I guess you could say I was slightly disappointed at the outcome. This age thing affected me a great deal, although it disgusted me to admit that. I could see why men usually liked dating younger girls, preferably in their twenties. It’s all so obvious. Basically, you get older and naturally become bitter. If you weren’t bitter, or somewhat tainted, there was probably something very wrong with you. I believe this to be the God’s honest truth. Life has a way of taking the optimism out of you, and not all that gracefully, I may add.
My state of mind was making it difficult to move on. So what was to become of me? That’s a simple enough question with not so simple an answer. I’d been spinning my wheels for so long that I was starting to run out of fuel.”
Excerpt from upcoming release "Home Wrecker II: The Brooklyn Chronicles":
“On the day that I left for good, I remember getting into my car like I always did. While driving out of the garage I watched our dog Grace watching me drive away. I knew it would be for the last time. Fortunately, she wouldn’t remember any of it. As for me, I wouldn’t be able to get that image out of my head. As I drove away, tears filled my eyes. The guilt that I felt at that moment was insurmountable. Those tears that I cried were the only tears that I shed throughout that entire time period. Never once did I cry for my husband.”
