Mars and Venus head to work...

Day-to-day, face-to-face workplace communication between men and women is often dysfunctional because each gender employs different speech pat­terns. When careers and paychecks are on the line, clear communication is crucial-from the mailroom to the boardroom. Code Switching explains what to say, how to say it, how to be taken seriously, and how to act while speaking with the opposite sex for maximum effectiveness in the workplace. Included are:

•How men and women manage conversation, and the value of "chitchat" prior to a meeting.

•How men use language to impart information and women use language to build or indicate rela­tionship.

•How men use e-mail to emphasize control while women use it to share and build rapport.

•How women can use language to build their credibility.

•How humor is used as a power play, to build ter­ritory, or to exclude others.

•How gender talk creates and shapes work rela­tionships.

Depth of Field

Makayla Rose has moved to Briney Creek from New York. She's decided after working as a forensic photographer for the NYPD and loving a man who ended up causing her to be suspected of murder, she needed a drastic change.

Makayla opens her little photography studio right on Main Street and is happily shooting scenes of festivals, family annual photos, and some business promotional arrangements. She's even getting her own glamor shot together so she can create an online profile for a dating site. Unfortunately, the pain and fear of the past comes flooding back when she arrives at her shop to find the body of the local loan officer.

Now Makayla has to figure out who in her idyllic new town is a murderer and if her photos, found dumped all over the body, hold the clue.

Multiple Exposures

Makayla Rose has gained a reputation in the small town of Briney Creek. She keeps a semi-level head when presented with a dead body (running blindly into traffic withstanding). She is skilled with a camera, the inanimate love of her life, and she's seeing the hot new sheriff.

The citizens of her town have noticed her. That's probably why Makayla gets an anonymous letter in her mailbox one day asking her to investigate one Dr. Zachariah Bloomberg - gynecologist. “…and if you think he is guilty of something, convince the
sheriff.”

Wonderful. Now she has to get her hoo-hoo checked, and the good doctor might be up to no good. Makayla, never one to turn away from a challenge, visits Dr. Bloomberg mostly because of her insatiable curiosity. Soon, barefoot and dressed in one of those ugly gowns, she's embroiled in another mystery when she discovers the doctor's dirty secret lying right next to his dead body.

Distortion Control

Makayla Rose doesn’t let life get her down too long. She’s been through a lot, and she thought it was all in the past when she moved to small town Briney Creek. Unfortunately, the past has the awful habit coming back to haunt you.

Makayla’s more recent decisions have caused a rift between her and the good sheriff, and she can’t see a way to repair the damage. Then she’s drugged, kidnapped, and bound next to the murdered ex-wife of the sheriff. Spencer is charged with the crime and held without bail. “I need you to do one thing for me, Makayla…believe in me.” This is déjà vu for Makayla’s checkered past, and belief is the last thing she feels. All she can do is discover the killer fast and hope she’s not falling into another trap.
