THE SABELA SERIES BOOK 8
This final book in The Sabela Series, Dream Big, is a crossover with Tammy Mellows from my trilogy and her husband Dwayne, meeting the characters in The Sabela Series. I think my cover designer did an amazing job portraying both series on the cover.
If you have read the Tammy Mellows Trilogy, then you know Tammy and Dwayne are based on myself and my husband Gordon. Let me tell you, I had so much fun putting ourselves into a fictitious world that I had created with characters that over the years have become real to me. In the book, we are living the big dream that we share in real life if we ever strike it rich while encouraging Slater and Sabela to follow theirs. It was truly a wonderful experience to write this.
The final book in The Sabela Series brings two of the author’s worlds together in a fabulous finale ending.
Dwayne and Tammy from The Tammy Mellows Trilogy meet Slater and Sabela from the Sabela Series.
Encouraged by one of their best friends, Claire, to take their honeymoon early, Slater and Sabela head off to Catalina Island for ten days of solitude, romance, and adventure.
When a day at the beach ends with Sabela being rushed to the hospital, Slater finds himself reevaluating his own life and begins to dream big.
Filling his head with crazy ideas, Slater becomes obsessed with what Sabela believes are impossible dreams and struggles to keep him grounded, while Dwayne and Tammy encourage him to follow his dreams.
A reunion of the six best friends brings devastating news about a family member and a shocking offer that turns Slater and Sabela’s world upside down.
Decisions must be made quickly. Will their choices make Slater’s big dreams come true or end them forever?
What will become of the circle of friends that have shared their lives? Will they be able to stay together?
Slater and Sabela find themselves at a crossroads. Torn between friends and what’s best for their family, they debate on which path to take…

I had so much fun writing this book with my husband, Gordon Grant. Many nights were spent reminiscing fond memories, laughing out loud, and looking at old photos from this period of our lives. Our favorites are featured on the back and front cover of the book.
Fans of the Tammy Mellows Trilogy will love these short stories that didn’t make it into the books.
Readers asked for more fishing and adventure tales while making a living commercial fishing on the Pacific Ocean and we delivered. Based on true events.
First Fall is a short prequel to the Tammy Mellows Trilogy, set a few years before the start of Reckless Beginnings when Tammy was 10 years old.
Having two older twin sisters, Donna and Jenny, Tammy learned to grow a tough skin at an early age, and with her father often out of town on business, Tammy soon discovered she’d have to fight her battles with her sisters alone.
Their mother Rose struggled to maintain their father’s strict rules when he was away, but no matter how hard she tried to stand firm, her three girls became experts when it came to getting their way.
Tammy took advantage of these times, knowing her mom would eventually give in if she were persistent enough.
What was supposed to be just a joyful bike ride was Tammy’s beginning in lessons learned.
Rules were broken.
Bad choices were made.
Feelings of regret weighed heavily on her mind.
This was her “First Fall,” but sadly not her last, as we will discover in The Tammy Mellows Trilogy – a riveting collection of mistakes made, battles conquered, and lessons learned that most can relate to on this journey we call life, which was based on true events.
The prequel also includes the Prologue, as well as Chapter 1 from Reckless Beginnings – The Tammy Mellows Trilogy Book 1.
She and Travis Kent were newlyweds and were about to have the grand opening for their new business, the children’s home, and adoption agency,
For the first few days after her wedding, Claire wore a radiant smile and her beauty shined, and then the nightmares began.
Haunted by the loss of her brother, Davin, whom she had disowned because of the terrible crimes he had committed, Claire soon discovered that she had divided emotions when handling Davin’s death.
She understood why many were relieved of his death after the horrible things he had done, including her good friend Sabela, who’d been a victim of his crimes.
But Claire soon came to realize that it wasn’t that easy for her; after all, she’d just lost her only brother. It was something she couldn’t deny or share with Sabela—how would she understand?
On a road trip with her new husband, Travis, childhood memories were triggered, and the loss of her brother weighed heavily on her mind.
And when a dark memory revealed a secret Davin took to his grave, Claire’s emotions spiraled out of control—how would she cope?
Would she be able to move forward with the grand opening of Open Arms and be the mother the children needed? A place that she, Travis, Slater, and Sabela had worked so hard for. Or would all of her hopes and dreams be destroyed?
