HUSBANDS AND LOVERS
A neglected wife.
A jealous husband.
A passionate lover.
A gun in a Tiffany bag.
Carlys Webber's lonely and insecure beginnings are in the past but her future is threatened when her husband turns into an angry stranger and she is propelled into the arms of another man. Their explosive passions collide in a life and death confrontation — with consequences that can shatter their almost-perfect lives.
Spanning the years stretching from the sullen Seventies to the exuberant Eighties, HUSBANDS AND LOVERS was a New York Times bestseller, a selection of the Literary Guild and Book-of-the Month Club and was published in 19 languages.

What will readers like about Husbands And Lovers? Readers will love the believable characters and situations and the fact that both male and female characters are described in depth and with compassion.
I decided to self-publish because my original publisher, Macmillan, was doing nothing with the rights. I reverted the rights and made the novel available on Kindle.
I read in many genres and have so many "favorite" authors that naming favorites would be like naming my favorite children!
