“If… Blurred Vision seems to set a predictable path, but its departures and insights make it an unpredictable delight for fans of the novelette form: an exploration of life’s course from two very different perspectives.” “… Jackie Mae has under fifty pages to accomplish her goal in If… Blurred Vision; and she does so with skill and style.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Timothy S. Graves, a good man. He is a business genius, not a neophyte, and he is determined to reach the top rung any way he can. A solid marriage, set financial future, all neatly wrapped up... or is it? Shirley doesn’t see it that way. She just might do something outrageous, something just for her, something shocking. What if? “If,” could transform everything in an instant. When the psychic with her ‘vision’ tells good ole Timmy her revelations, a series of events unfold that will change the lives of those around him forever.

Needing to go home and rectify the wrongs that are hovering ever constant around her, she finds herself thrust into a whole new set of truths she must confront. What if she had chosen differently?

"If... Dangerous Waters revolves around Alena, a peppy, kind, happy-go-luck nearly-twenty-two-year-old child who still lives at home, has a 'dream' boyfriend, and likes everything about her life except for her appearance. She has big plans for her future and is set to graduate from college with a coveted degree in bitotechnology when things change. Alena also has a secret: she sees spirits, and has done so since a small child, when her first reaction to a sighting leads her to deny her abilities..."
"Fans of the novelette form and newcomers more familiar with longer novels or shorter stories will find these exquisite productions, able to be digested individually but at their most powerful when taken together." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“An exceptionally powerful, unexpected ending completes the carefully-penned scenario and lends a delightful touch of angst to the matter of Shona’s evolution. Novelette readers will be delighted by the soaring heights and depths of Mae’s creation, which is all about second chances won and lost.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
A thought provoking tale that examines how events can change life decisions in a heartbeat, Shona Forrester is determined to make her business a success. However, her carefully planned future will be turned upside down by events so bizarre, events she never could have imagined. Rick seems to be part of the equation for a happy life, but is he? Psychic Two Moons, Medium will radically alter all her carefully laid plans. What ifs will unfold and blossom into reality; a reality where the possibilities can be good or very, very bad.
“The joy of all the ‘If’ stories lies in their surprise twists. Mae is a master storyteller and an uncommon ruler of the novelette form. There are no wasted words, no lengthy explanations, and (especially notable) no predictable paths, even for lives that seem well set in their courses.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
