Displaying Bastards Brew 300px.jpgWhen L'Wren's ex-boyfriend Jeff suddenly disappears, she turns to Kevin to help her find him. With one phone call, Kevin makes sure that Jeff stays hidden and that L'Wren's heart is broken, leaving the door open for Kevin to pursue her. But Kevin is not as free as L'Wren thinks; she is in the dark about his affair with her stepmother, Savi. Savi constantly reminds Kevin of his devious ways and uses their secret to keep him as her toyfriend. 

“You don’t deserve to be loved, and you don’t deserve to be happy. You and I are the same … we’re broken inside. Everything we touch, we destroy. We don’t get happily ever after … we don’t get to ride off into the sunset. You know who gets that? L’Wren … she gets it, she gets the guy, and she deserves a decent guy.”- Savi

Kevin desires to be the man that L'Wren deserves, but before he can assume the role of white knight, he brews one last plan to get rid of Savi for good. Will L'Wren, the innocent victim in their twisted game, become a casualty?

Kevin may have sold his body to the devil in stilettos, but he'd be damned if he let her have his heart. 

Suitable for young adult readers 18+

Gillian FelixGillian Felix has been writing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. She enjoys creating characters that could be your next-door neighbor, but would you want them as your neighbor is another story.

Originally from the island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Miss Felix moved to the United States in 1998. Since then she has been involved in the entertainment industry for over ten years. Her experience ranges from script supervisor to production manager on many independent features. She is trained in the Meisner and Stanislavski technique of acting, which she credits as an asset to her character development and writing.

Miss Felix is also an entrepreneur and advocate for children's and women's rights.



Kevin stared at the computer screen, pondering his fate with L’Wren. Did Savi tell her 

about their affair? Would he ever hear from her again? Did she hate him? It killed him 

thinking that she’d hate him for his indiscretions with her stepmother. Maybe it’d be best 

if she found out now, before she got too involved, he told himself. Maybe he should be 

the one to tell her. There was a knock on his office door, and Dwayne the bartender stuck 

his neck in. 

“You have a visitor,” he announced.

Kevin took a deep breath and wondered if L’Wren had come to cuss him out. He 

nodded at Dwayne. Might as well get it over with, he told himself and stood up behind 

his desk.

Savi strutted proudly into Kevin’s office. “Hello, lover,” she purred, then pulled him 

in for a kiss and a nice, firm grope of his ass. “Miss me?”

He backed away from her.

Savi knew things had changed; she saw the way he looked at L’Wren, and knew she’d 

have to work twice as hard to get him back to where they left off. 

“What’s going on with you and L’Wren?” She took a seat on the couch where they’d 

ravaged each other so many times in the last few months. 

“Nothing.” Kevin sat behind his desk, relieved that Savi was a safe distance away. 

“I’m kind of busy right now.”

“Nothing? Is that why she was grinning like a hyena after you left?”

“What did she tell you?”

“What is there to tell?” Savi studied him.

“I don’t have time for games, Savi. I have work to do. The pub is closed. If you want a 

drink, come back later.” He dismissed her and pretended to look busy.

“Whatever you have with L’Wren, cut it out now. L’Wren is not like me. She’s 

delicate and trusting, and I don’t want you playing around on her,” Savi stated crisply.

Kevin wondered if Savi was really protective or was this her way of marking her 


“Did you tell her about us?”

“Why would I do that?”

“Look, Savi, I like L’Wren. I’m not gonna play around on her,” Kevin stated boldly.

Savi closed her eyes and absorbed his words, then took a deep breath.

Her silence made him uncomfortable. Was she falling for him? Did their fun and 

games turn serious for her? He joined her on the couch.

“Savi, I don’t want to hurt you, but this thing with us has to end,” he said tenderly.

“Don’t come around my house again.” Her voice was icy.

Kevin was ready to agree to anything to get out of their affair. “Fine.”

“That doesn’t mean I want you for my stepdaughter.” She looked at him seriously. 

“You’re a drug dealer, this pub is a front, and I don’t want you around my girls.”

“I’ll never do anything to hurt them,” Kevin said.

“You’re not a nice person, Kevin. You use people, and you hurt them. The friends you 

have are only around you because they are afraid of you. Nobody likes you, and nobody 

wants to be around you. It’s only a matter of time before L’Wren realizes that. You can’t 

hide who you really are. You’re a monster.”

Savi’s words sliced into Kevin’s core.

“You don’t deserve to be loved, and you don’t deserve to be happy. You and I are the 

same … we’re broken inside. Everything we touch, we destroy. We don’t get happily 

ever after … we don’t get to ride off into the sunset. You know who gets that? L’Wren … 

she gets it, she gets the guy, and she deserves a decent guy.” Savi saw the hurt in his eyes 

and knew that he liked L’Wren more than he was letting on. Kevin was all she had, and 

she had no intention of letting him go.


How did you come up for the idea for your books?

The Family Portrait series was a television series I'd written. I just fell in love with the characters and hadn't planned on anyone reading it. Then one day I got a feeling deep down to put it out in the world, I hired a story editor and proofreader, had the cover designed and the rest is history in the making.

When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?

It wasn't a decision to become a writer, I've always written. After a producer in Hollywood read the script and loved it, I figured maybe I could do this. Now I am committed. I love the business aspect of the whole process and indie publishing. I get to combine my 2 loves; writing and business.

Who was your favourite character to write in Bastard’s Brew and why?

That's a hard question because I love them all. In Bastard's Brew I would have to give that round to Kevin. He is developing quite a following with lady readers, so I was glad to give him the spotlight. I got to showcase him with his siblings, with the woman he sleeps with and with the woman he loves. Note: they are not the same people, and he is not the same person around any of them. I love the layers of his character in Bastard's Brew. 

When you wrote these books, did you ever get very frustrated with the characters even though they’re your own?

Great question, YES! Adriana makes me a little crazy sometimes. She is wild and impulsive. She's like a wolf in a hen house.

Do you plan to continue these books, into a longer series?

Most definitely! The story is just getting started. I have 36 episodes of the television series written, I'm not saying 36 books but there are a lot of stories still left to tell. As long as there is an audience, the story will continue until it is done. Then I'll wrap it up and move on.

Can the books be read as stand-alones?

The Banovic Siblings (Book 2) can be read as a stand-alone but it has a cliff hanger. Changes (Book 1) is free on Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Smashwords and Kobo. It is an introduction to the characters and readers can then decide if they want to learn more about them or if the series is not for them. It's kind of risky doing it that way, but what is life without risks?

What was your favourite scene to write in Bastard’s Brew and why?

Your questions are awesome! (I am having fun with them). I'd have to say Chapter 20: Shame. On one hand you celebrate with Haze because his career is starting to take off, and then my heart broke for him because he has to go through this horrible thing that has happened. He's up one minute and down the next. Just like life right?

Sweet or sour? Both, together like Sweet n Sour chicken or sauce.

TV or Books? Books

Favourite TV Show? The Vampire Diaries.

Favourite Movie? The Wolf of Wall Street.
