Moonlighting: My Daring Double Life

It’s Teaser Tuesday! Here’s an excerpt from Transformations, my book of three fun short stories. This one is from Moonlighting: My Daring Double Life.

Here’s how a typical day goes in the life of me: wake up at six a.m.  Shower, swallow a bit of breakfast and a steaming cup of Joe, then drive a few miles to Alexander High School. There, I’ll spend the day, as the school adjustment counselor, dealing with the everyday tragedies of teenagers: “He doesn’t love me and I can’t concentrate on my school work.” Or, “She doesn’t love me and I’m going to beat up the punk she does love.”  I adore my job and my students and helping them through their issues.  But when the bell rings at quarter past two I’m as excited as the students to leave, because that’s when I shift into the next gear.

Some days I head to the gym, or maybe out for a power walk.  Other days I’ll go out with friends or over to Mom and Dad’s for dinner.  No matter what I do though, I’m always home by six and sleeping by six-thirty.  After two hours I’m awake again and heading to my second job.  From ten at night until one in the morning every Wednesday through Sunday, I train and manage two groups of eight male exotic dancers at Club Dangerous, a ladies club thirty miles away.

Did I say my day was “typical?”  I clearly lied.

Transformations, as well as my other books, are available on my BOOKS page.
