MOMENTS OF CLARITY
Moments series #2
Releasing June 22, 2017
That was me.
In every way that mattered anyway. I had a close, loving relationship with my parents, my older brother was my hero, and with graduation right around the corner, I was on the verge of turning my love of photography into a career.
Then there was Carter, surprisingly he turned out to be the yin to my yang. Where I was alternative, slightly nerdy and a whole lot awkward, Carter was smooth, popular and confidant. Yet somehow, we fit. Or so I thought.
With the events of one night, the clarity with which I once saw my life vanished. Leaving me completely unprepared for the reality I would now have to face and the choices that accompanied it.
A knock on my doorframe startles me, I gently place the camera back in its spot on my shelf that houses four other vintage folding cameras from different era’s.
Once it’s safely returned I turn to see who’s at my door, Carter, of course.
The corner of his mouth ticks up in a small smile, “Lunch is in the kitchen, and I think I just saw your brother pull up out front.”
The calm that had washed over me while I cleaned my camera disappears and my shoulders stiffen, I remind myself why I’m doing this and relax a little.
“You don’t have to do this you know,” Carter says softly.
I give him a half-hearted smile, “I know I don’t have to, but I need to. I need to know Carter.”
He closes his eyes and nods, “Okay, let’s do this then,” he says with an outstretched hand.
Taking it, he gives my fingers a little squeeze, then it’s show time.
Don't miss the first title in the Moments series,
MOMENTS OF BEAUTY
J B Heller is an Aussie Indie Author of Steamy Contemporary and Comedic Romance. She has three wildling children, two giant Great Danes, one permanently terrified cat, five birds of various species (One of whom thinks she’s helping by running across the keyboard repeatedly while JB tries to work. Lucky she’s tiny.), and a gazillion fish. Oh, and we can’t forget the man child she calls her husband.
After years of working in assorted fields including a Butchery, Remedial Therapist Receptionist, Hairdressing, and Checkout Chick Extraordinaire, she finally found her place amongst likeminded people in the writing community.
She published her first book in 2013 under the pen name Eliza Brown, and has since evolved into J B Heller with more than 10 titles to her name.
On her limited downtime you’ll find her reading, trolling Pinterest for her next muse or online stationery shopping (she has a mild addiction to stationery and she refuses to seek help.).
