Born along the dusky red banks of the Ohio River, RJ grew up in a sleepy little town in southern Indiana where the sounds of cicadas and whippoorwills marked the arrival of summer and cruising the town square on a Friday night was a rite of passage. From law enforcement to the hallowed corporate halls of two Fortune 500s he draws from a deep well of life experience. With Spanish as his second language and the day-to-day of living in one of the largest cities of culture in the world, RJ infuses his stories with a raw reality that makes the characters memorable forever.
Most days you'll find RJ sitting at his desk overlooking one of the concrete jungle's lush city parks trying to dream up new ways to captivate and titillate your imagination ... in the most wicked way possible, of course.

Jessie doesn't understand matters of the heart, not even her own.
Blues is Jessica Butler's life. No performer romances the audience better. Unfortunately the audience is the only thing twenty-eight-year-old Jessie is romancing these days. Her life is an endless string of club dates with the occasional male groupie thrown in to stave off complete isolation. Careful to never surrender more than her body, matters of her heart remain a mystery, even to her.
On the outs with her family, she's been running from gig to gig for over a year. When her little sister's wedding invitation finds her in Chicago Jessie realizes it's time to stop running. Unwittingly she starts a pilgrimage that turns the ever elusive matters of her heart into a train wreck.
Marcella Dionysius keeps company with the dead Europeans. Instead of bars and clubs, Marci's venues are concert halls and recording studios. She's a world-class cello player, a woman that loves women, and the only daughter of a very powerful man who wants just one thing before he dies. An heir.
Marci is an exotic Greek goddess next to Jessie's pale, lanky, Midwestern form, and Jessie hates her sister's best friend immediately. She hates her even more after their first kiss. Because this time running isn't an option.
