Oaktown Girls

DRIVEN

Book One of the Oaktown Girls Series

Who says you can’t find the love of your life while you’re getting your tire fixed?

Driven is the oldest woman-owned garage in Oakland – and the pride of the lesbian community.

At least, it is until the uber-competitive former race car driver Mindy Rose shows up and opens her own garage, complete with chair massages and a sushi bar.

Mindy’s out to destroy Driven, a fact that galls her good-hearted, and very ethical Irish assistant Kate.

This is just reinforced when Kate has an emergency blow out, and is forced to go into Driven for a repair. Instantly, she finds herself drawn to the tall, tantalizing co-owner Lizzy.

That’s when things get … well … complicated.

Can sweet Kate and passionate Lizzy finally find the love they’ve been looking for forever? Or will Mindy find out and bring them and Driven down?

It’s just the beginning of the fun, romantic free-for-all that is the Oaktown Girls series.

Committed

Book Two of the Oaktown Girls Series

… a vivid, realistic read based on real-life atmospheres (this reviewer is well familiar with Oakland’s milieu), lesbian community interactions, and issues that arise on a microcosmic and macrocosmic level.”
— California Bookwatch

Is it wise to propose marriage to your undocumented girlfriend if she just moved in … and she’s already thinking of moving out?

That’s the question on auto mechanic Lizzy’s mind as she wrestles with what to do in Book Two of the Oaktown Girls series. Commitment is definitely in the air for this tightly knit circle of Oakland lesbians.

Tenika can’t stand the idea of marrying anyone – but her partner Delilah, a tattoo artist, has her heart set on it. But then, when Delilah develops a strange, disabling tremor, Tenika’s forced to rethink everything she once held as true.

Meanwhile Frankie, a newcomer who happens to be an undercover cop, can’t find a date to save her life. That is until she happens to meet the ravishing charmer Tasha at Tenika and Lizzy’s garage. Will Frankie’s PTSD undermine her ability to open up and find her love? And will it be Tasha, or the sweet, open-hearted Sally who seems to know a little too much about her?

 
 

And why won’t either of them tell Frankie what they do for a living?

Find out who falls in love for good in this warm-hearted page turner you can’t put down.

 
 

DESTINED

Book Three of the Oaktown Girls Series

Once again this could be read as a stand-alone, but by this point in the series you’d really be missing out if you haven’t read them all ... Well-written, with good explorations of relationships, inner turmoil, and growth of characters both within themselves and in their connections with others … it’s another good read.
— Curve Magazine

Garage owner Lizzy is finally about to move in with her love Kate, an Irish expat, until ICE shows up and threatens to deport her. Soon Kate is living in a Sanctuary church and Lizzy is trying to get her out.

But the church maintenance person, Monroe, soon gets dangerously obsessed with Kate, as well.

Meanwhile, SFPD undercover cop Frankie has fallen hard for Sally, a psychic, even though she can’t wrap her head around Sally’s work. Which is okay until Sally needs Frankie’s professional help with a psychic vision she’s seen that could be catastrophic for Oakland.

Where does Frankie draw the line—or should she at all?

Destined captures the romantic ups and downs of this tightly-knit group of Oakland lesbians in a fast-moving standalone that makes you think about your own destiny, too.
