For up-and-coming modiste, Georgia Ellis, past experience with men has left her clear on one thing.
She hasn’t got time for that mess.
Having loved hard and left burned by betrayal; Georgia’s road hasn’t been easy.
But life is short and her flourishing millinery boutique in the heart of London has been a way out, a source of joy. A situation she thinks she’s cool with.
That is until, a mystery man walks into her shop stirring all manner of trouble and a tidal wave of emotion.
A flicker of hope. A flash of recognition.
A reminder of a deep love Georgia still longs to forget?
Georgia is about to learn sometimes the spark of the new gets revealed in the debris of the old.
Georgia Lights has romantic elements but is not a traditional romance. This story is a departure for me, in a shorts series which is playing on a fable theme (Book 1 Before U Go). Georgia Lights is the second short story about mixed heritage/identity, entrepreneurship, friendship, betrayal, family history, a Caribbean cultural geography and of course … love. These short stories can be read in any order.
And, dear reader, please be warned:
This is an ADULT +18 short story and series – containing explicit language, adult themes and sexual content.

The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Color Purple weaves a “glorious and iridescent” tapestry of interrelated lives in this New York Times bestseller (Library Journal).
In The Temple of My Familiar, Celie and Shug from The Color Purple subtly shadow the lives of dozens of characters, all dealing in some way with the legacy of the African experience in America. From recent African immigrants, to a woman who grew up in the mixed-race rainforest communities of South America, to Celie’s own granddaughter living in modern-day San Francisco, all must come to understand the brutal stories of their ancestors to come to terms with their own troubled lives.
As Walker follows these astonishing characters, she weaves a new mythology from old fables and history, a profoundly spiritual explanation for centuries of shared African-American experience.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
The Temple of My Familiar is the 2nd book in the Color Purple Collection, which also includes The Color Purple and Possessing the Secret of Joy.
