90 Days @ Sea is a romantic thriller. Written  under my pen name: Jude Sessions

90 Days at Sea is the tale of one lonely fifties-something woman’s searching for her soul mate, her forever and lasting love. This Hollywood author, script-writer, filmmaker, embarks on a journey of discovery that will leave you laughing, cheering, holding your breath, and proud to be a woman. Home alone and drowning in loneliness, Chelsea surfed the new 90s information highway called the Internet. Her curiosity stumbled her into a chat room. What could go wrong there? With a single word, hello and a single click, send, Chelsea’s keyboard morphed into a springboard that would bounce her from the ache of celibate loneliness to the ecstasy of true love, and then, without warning, to devastating news. Resilient, resourceful, and determined to learn the truth, Chelsea, travels from her West Coast to his East Coast to walk where he walked, and to see all that they had shared. His haunting words rang in her mind. “You have no idea how much I miss you. It’s like an invisible rope is tied to my heart, pulling and tugging. My mind spins like a ship’s wheel with endless thoughts of you. You own my heart. You live in my mind, please come and claim my body.” Yes, the mind is the battlefield. If a person can capture the mind they can own the body. But what happens to the heart? On her journey she becomes entangled in a reality that proves more bizarre, more dangerous, and more unbelievable than any filmmaker’s most twisted fantasy.
