Young and Scambitious (A short story)
Who is Elizabeth Madrid, exactly? She’s Manila’s latest It Girl–stylish, staple of the club scene, new best friend of famous-for-being-famous Chrysalis Magnolia. She’s also a jewelry clan heiress, a former model, an Ivy Leaguer… except no one actually knew of her until last year. Shouldn’t her new society friends be more suspicious? Especially “BFF” Chrysalis, who reportedly already lost an expensive ring to a friend who turned out to be a thief? 

Get it on Amazon.

I just did this because it’s fun. It’s a departure in several ways from the stuff I usually write, and is inspired by a recent Sherlock Holmes/Arsene Lupin reading binge. Because it’s another one of those experiments I do every now and then, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for my readers to try it. So I released it free on Amazon Kindle for the first five days, and it will remain at $0.99 until I’m allowed to make it free yet again.

If you choose to get it, thank you! Hope you enjoy it!
