Leaving L. A. and Other Stories
by Wendy Winters
The story Leaving L. A. is about courage. A woman is entangled in a web of physical and mental illness, her family, bad luck, and a city to which she never felt she belonged. But she escapes up North. In Monterey, California, she meets Larry French, a rich pornography mogul, and has to struggle for independence, and a name for herself as a dominatrix and learn her biggest lesson-Survival.

Exotic and erotic, Wendy Winters Leaving L.A. brings to mind 19th century Russian literature transported to modern Southern California. Winters gives a slap in the face to authority, and tells it like it is. All of her stories are unique and down-to-earth.
