Layla's Stories

2021:  Bridges

“Cause it’s all water under bridges cept for those that have since been burned”

Water Under Burned Bridges by Mimicking Birds (Eons, 2014)


The characters in this series all have dark pasts that have seriously affected the lives of others.  Each one of them will be revisited at a point in their lives where they will need to look back on the bridges they have crossed and decide if water may still flow under them or if they are too badly burned to salvage.


They will all get what they deserve, but it may not be a happy ending.

The bridges she's crossed have definitely been charred, but just maybe they’re still passable. Something that she will discover soon enough when she crosses paths with PFC Troy Dalton (Love Bleeds). A man who is not only moved by her beauty, but by her story.
