Going From Childhood To Adolescence Is A Trip
Set in 1970s Baltimore, Kizmic’s Journey tells the warm-hearted story of Kizmic Waters, a tough, fun-loving tomboy, who at age nine vows never to grow up. From sunup until the streetlights flicker on, Kizmic spends her days hanging out in her Charm City neighborhood, going from one adventure to another, living a childhood Peter Pan would envy. Then one morning, puberty sneaks up on her like the Grim Reaper and shatters her child’s paradise. Not a girl to simply lie down and give up the ghost, Kizmic embarks on a sentimental journey to live out the end of her idyllic childhood on her terms.
Kizmic’s Journey explores the struggles inherent in that strangely wonderful yet confusing, lonely, terrifying, and painful transition from childhood to adolescence. In her humorous, touching, and nostalgic prose, bestselling author, Odessa Rose, delivers a genuine, classic coming-of-age tale that takes us back to the days when the lively shouts of kids playing outdoors filled the air, punch buggies cruised the streets, and neighbors looked out for one another.

Life is too short for denials and too damn long for regrets.
Renowned, Baltimore-based sculptor Tonya Mimms focuses on her artwork to the exclusion of everything, including her thirst for love. Then one day, Tonya’s firm footing in the art world slips when she takes on a project that pushes her completely out of her artistic realm.
While running from the sculpture, Tonya bumps into Malcolm Holland, a handsome accountant with a dazzling gap between his teeth that lures her in the way a man’s secrets seduce a woman’s ear. Suddenly, Tonya joyfully finds herself in love with a man for the first time in her life. But Tonya’s happiness turns to fearful bliss when she happens upon Satin Pierce, a strikingly beautiful bookstore owner, who has one of Tonya’s sculptures on a shelf in her bedroom. Soon, Tonya becomes the centerpiece of a love triangle in which she is forced to choose between the man of her dreams and the woman destined to be her reality.
A multi-dimensional story, Water In A Broken Glass illustrates the complexity of art, love, and sexuality.

Jasmine is not crazy. She's in love.
What does a woman do when she needs to prove that her boyfriend is not in love with his wife?
This is the dilemma facing physical therapist Jasmine Falls, who goes against her common sense and good home training and becomes romantically involved with Daniel Roberts, a community organizer with a wife and two young children. Jasmine is blissfully content with her secret love affair until it begins to cause friction between herself and her best friend, Candy, who sees Jasmine's love for Daniel as selfish, despicable, and just downright dumb. And then there are Jasmine's parents, who are well on their way to admitting that the daughter they reared to be open-minded but not stupid has fooled around and gotten herself mixed up with somebody else's husband.
Desperate to keep Candy from yip-yapping about her being a home wrecker and to keep her parents from lying awake at night wondering where they went wrong, Jasmine does the unthinkable. She breaks into Daniel's house. But unlike a more infamous other woman, Jasmine's goal is not to knock off Daniel's wife or make goulash out of the family pet. Her only objective is to do what every woman in her position wishes she had the guts and opportunity to do--become a fly on the wall of her lover's life so she can bear witness to the fact that Daniel is in love with her, not the woman he's been married to for the past thirteen years. The question is, does Jasmine see what is meant to be or what never should have been?
In this passionately written story of love, choices, family, adultery, and friendship, Rose shows the other woman in a way she hasn't been seen before, even by herself.
