Come True: A Bomb-Ass Genie Romance

A jaded girl. A persistent genie. A contest of souls.

Recent college graduate Dolly Jones has spent the last year stubbornly trying to atone for a mistake that cost her everything. She doesn’t go out, she doesn’t make new friends and she sure as hell doesn’t treat herself to things she hasn’t earned, but when her most recent thrift store purchase proves home to a hot, magical genie determined to draw out her darkest desires in exchange for a taste of her soul, Dolly’s restraint, and patience, will be put to the test. 

Newbie genie Velis Reilhander will do anything to beat his older half-brothers in a soul-collecting contest that will determine the next heir to their family estate, even if it means coaxing desire out of the least palatable human he’s ever contracted. As a djinn from a ‘polluted’ bloodline, Velis knows what it’s like to work twice as hard as everyone else, and he won’t let anyone—not even Dolly f*cking Jones—stand in the way of his birthright. He just needs to figure out her heart’s greatest desire before his asshole brothers can get to her first. 

COME TRUE: A BOMB-ASS GENIE ROMANCE is the romantic, fantastic second-coming-of-age story of two flawed twenty-somethings from different realms battling their inner demons, and each other, one wish at a time.

He has a plan for our lives, yet even when we make the wrong decisions, God is still the master planner. “The Promise” chronicles the story of a couple, each who will make choices that will drastically change the course of life. A promise is given. Wrapped around the horror of death, the story evolves from the prestige of an enticing career to the remote jungles of the world. Life moves on in spite of the poor decision we make, yet the characters find that even when lost, there is hope. The story unfolds to reveal God reigns as the supreme creator and designer. Even so, it seems the promise must now be impossible. But is it??

Meet Anne Jean Michele

I received my master’s degree in Management of Computer Information Systems from California State University, Sacramento and live in Sequim WA with family. Why did I write “The Promise”? When our children were small, our house was the gathering place for neighboring children to play. When the girls were in their teens, our house was a safe place for their friends who for some reason needed a place to stay. Although our daughters did not experience the events in this book, I knew or heard about so many who did, and the emotions were heartbreaking. I often thought ‘why doesn’t someone write a story that helps to open the eyes of young adults struggling with life decisions, something that shows God’s love, free of human condemnation… a story that could apply to anyone, young or old, regardless of the mistakes made in life. I never expected that someone to be me, however I could not get the thoughts out of my mind until I finally gave in and began to write. Could this have been God’s gentle push? I think so, and was able to finally release all those years of compassion and heartache into this book. My hope in writing this book is to give readers pause to think, really think, about God’s master plan. Every person is important; YOU are important to God. No mistake is beyond the reach of God’s love and grace. Open your eyes to trust in God…there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that light is Christ.

Blood on Their Hands: Weaving a Tangled Web

A racist attorney faces a crisis of conscience when reluctantly defending a black man brutally beaten by police and charged with resisting arrest.


Hiram Garbuncle is a veteran criminal defense attorney—as well as a racist, miserly alcoholic. His life revolves around hoarding money, following sports, pursuing sex, drinking—and the prideful practice of law.


Alec Monceau is a black man working to support his daughter’s family in Trinidad. It is 2008, and his car carries an Obama bumper sticker. This political advertisement leads to a superfluous traffic stop and a brutal beating by police.


It goes against Garbuncle’s grain to defend a black man from a charge of violently resisting arrest, but he is so confident of winning that he is negligent in the jury selection, and a mistrial occurs. He then discovers incriminating evidence on the two cops, and his new challenge becomes how to keep himself and his client alive pending a new trial.
