Art is an expression of love, or it is nothing

~Mark Chegall

On this page you will find my literary endeavours. Initially I wondered whether or not I create another website just for them. I invariably came to the conclusion that since both activities Art and writing encompass the same vision for me, it was best that my offerings in both crafts be in one place for easier access. In my view, though different, they are similar to me, as I view my writing as painting pictures with words, while while art I utilize brush and paints to achieve the same end. Perhaps you'll agree with me, perhaps not but that's all right. So I'll not waste any more time on a lengthy commentary and just cut to the chase.

My first literary endeavour was Love's Legacy which was recently published as a quartet by Renaissance E-books. www.renebooks.com. They can also be purchased at www.fictionwise.com, www.e-bookAd.com.

Claire's Awakening [Love's Legacy Book I]

eBook by T. L. Davison

A Spellbinding Saga of Romance, Passion and Reincarnation! In the year 1799 in Cornwall, England at Cardon Hall, four people are intertwined in a hopeless situation that ends in murder. Almost two centuries later the four protagonists are reborn to meet and repeat or rectify the past wrong. They are Lance Stevens, Kenn Michael Harrison, James Brandon and Claire Deveraux. In 1974 Claire and Lance, both attractive, very articulate and intelligent, encounter each other when seventeen-year-old Claire goes to Cornwall for the summer holidays. It's love and recognition at first sight on Lance's part, because he's been haunted by nightmares of the 1700s.

Lance invites Claire to Cardon Hall, his family's ancestral home, where she, too, begins to experience very vivid memories of the past. Lance is convinced that he has found his ancient love. Claire on the other hand is dismayed by what is happening to her. However, her best friend Elsa, familiar with reincarnation through her spiritualist grandmother helps Claire to understand better and fully accept her connection with Lance. Initially, Lance and Claire's relationship is almost like a fairy tale, despite the feelings of doom both have stemming from the tragic past that hangs over them. Then Claire's mother dies and she is relieved to have to join the rest of her family in Canada. For, as much as she loves Lance, Claire does not feel ready to get married at seventeen. Lance gives Claire his ring, and she promises to return. But, deep within, she wonders if she really will. Ahead of her lies encounters with Kenn and James that will create further doubts for Claire. Are she and Lance truly star-crossed lovers, or merely two mortals drawn together by unresolved forces from the past?

Please note that the cover for this segment will be different on the site at Renaissance E-Books as the publisher preferred something a little steamier. So I invariably ended up with 3 different covers off of which are featured in the Book Cover Design Section of this website.

Fictionwise Release Date: January,2005

My second effort resulted in Impostor. Experiencing a bad patch in my life, I hadn't written anything for a while following Love's Legacy, and then one night out of a sense of frustration as insomnia became my nightly companion, the first paragraph for the first chapter and another that would be part of the last, materialized in my brain. Getting out of bed I went straight to the computer and committed I had so far to disk, and worked my way through towards the middle until I had enough ideas to put a plausible sequel together. Kenn Michael, one of my favourite characters from Love's Legacy, just refused to remain expired and seemed to be screaming for his own story, and so Impostor started to materialize.

Ahh, my third effort and something completely removed from my normal genre. Wanting to try my hand at something completely different, and not really in the frame of mind to go the Harlequin Romance route as most of my friends counseled me to do so I could at least get myself published, I decided to try my hand at erotica instead. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people of the alternative scene who were kind enough to answer my endless questions about the lifestyle which enabled me to re-create very plausible erotic scenes in this novel which I also wrote under the name Laura Hammond. And I must confess that this is the one that got me noticed and published.
