The Desperate Prequels are three stand-alone stories, tales written to either entice or enrich, depending on if you've read the Desperate Times Trilogy. Bill Huggins is known in the trailer park as the man who can fix anything. He does quality work and accepts almost anything as payment. What he enjoys the most is the company, the human contact. For this reason, Bill's services are in high demand. Bill is trying to put his life back together after a long stretch of bad luck and poor choices. He learns the hard way that there are two types of people in this world: those who give and those who take. Julie Hartman comes home unexpectedly and watches as her boyfriend, Mike, packs up his things and prepares to move out of the life they shared. Mike has help, his brother Alan and his wife, Angie, are on the scene. There is another woman there, as well. Her name is Lea and Julie has her suspicions about her. Depressed, Julie starts drinking and receives a call from her old friend, Brenda, who soon joins Julie to offer support. Brenda has her own way of dealing with scoundrels. She takes stock of the situation and dishes out a revenge the movers will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Jon has always marched to the beat of his own drum. He is strong and capable and doesn't care what people think of him. Sadly, he lives in a world where discrimination still rears its ugly head. Despite recent strides in equality, he knows there is still a long way to go. Trouble finds him as he and a friend are out for dinner. But people who see things strictly for face-value, miss important indicators and usually end up regretting it. Jon is no exception. He is not what he appears to be and the thugs could not have caught him at a worse time. The troublemakers quickly learn that they have bitten off more than they can chew. Whether you have read the trilogy or not, these stories are guaranteed to entertain. We are all fighting our own battles, each of us has our own story. The Desperate Prequels is a reminder to all of us to tread lightly and to think before we act. The consequences for failing to do so can be severe.
