Told from first person perspective (Emma) FATE’S DEMAND follows Emma O’Brien as she, along with her business partner Ross Underwood, head to New Orleans, awaiting the arrival of businessman Everett Ramses but when a stranger approaches Emma regarding a deal already brokered for her future, our heroine quickly discovers that not is all as it appears in the dark underbelly of New Orleans, Louisiana.

FATE’S DEMAND is an intriguing and revealing short story that introduces the reader to Emma O’Brien, a thirty year old woman whose own history is marred by secrets and death, and Everett Ramses, the self-proclaimed king of New Orleans, Louisiana.
