    What if you were to meet the perfect person – your best friend, soul mate and the great love of your life – but at the wrong time?

    That question is at the heart of Fall Again, a contemporary romantic series about two working actors, Marc Guiro and Lauren Phillips set against the backdrop of New York, Los Angeles and points in-between over two decades.

    In the first book, Beginnings you’ll meet Marc & Lauren and their closest friends in the optimistic New York City of the late 1980’s.

    Marc Guiro is from Montreal Canada and is pursuing acting against the wishes of his family. Marc’s serious approach to life rarely allows others to get close.

    Lauren Phillips is confident, positive and has been fixated on moving to New York and becoming an actor since she was a child growing up in the Midwest. Since her graduation from college Lauren’s sole focus becomes her career.

    Marc and Lauren meet when they are very young and focused on building their careers as professional actors in New York City. Despite an obvious attraction, decorum dictates that their relationship remain platonic.

    One major complication is Miriam, Marc’s longtime girlfriend and the daughter of his father’s business partner. Miriam hates everything about his life in New York and has her mind set on marriage.

    Over time Marc and Lauren find themselves struggling to maintain the façade of being just friends to those around them, as well as to each other. But regardless of their best efforts to remain friends, Marc and Lauren fall in love.

    The Fall Again series not only follows the lives of Marc and Lauren, but also provides a realistic look into the lives of working actors.

    Our Second Chance by Author C.D. Taylor is a tale of forgiveness, redemption, and love. It demonstrates how the power of healing can strengthen the bond between family, friends, and lovers.

    Emily Mills lives a life of opulence and luxury in Los Angeles but can’t shake the feeling that there is something more out there for her. It isn’t the picture perfect life her social circles expect and she knows something is missing. Unwilling to let happiness be a distant wish, she boards a plane to chase her dreams of becoming a lawyer in New York City. It doesn’t take long for her past to reappear with her former best friend from college, Jake Bradford. Knowing the feelings she’s held for Jake all these years, she still tries to convince herself that she isn’t worthy of any sort of love from him. Conceding to a fraction of her desire, Emily strikes a deal with Jake to become steamy friends with benefits. Soon her passionate bond with him turns out to be way more intense than she expects and she finds herself wishing her emotional scars didn’t rear their ugly head and destroy everything she’s worked for.

    Can Emily forgive herself and those who have hurt her in the past to become the person she knows she can be? Or will the roadblocks in front of her cause her to make the decision to run like she’s been doing most of her life?
