Frank St. Germaine returns to San Diego from his home in Montreal more or less rehabilitated and tries to put his life back together. He accomplishes a noteworthy and newsworthy run of Swan Lake and has a chance to go on Broadway as an actor. However, his love life rapidly becomes a quagmire of craziness that includes an oversexed gym instructor with a solemn secret Frank cannot ignore and two cute lesbian actresses who have a convoluted agenda of their own. This second volume of the Terpsichorean Sextet explores the high price an entertainer must often pay to pursue a difficult and sometimes thankless art like ballet. This is also a compelling look at the passion that often rules on both sides of the ballet mirror.

Alexandra Collard has been involved in dance most of her life. Even though all the companies in this book are fictional, they embody many issues of the companies she danced with in her early adulthood. When her son Shane was accepted as a scholarship student at the School of American Ballet, she quit dancing and moved to New York City. While there, she worked in the administration offices at George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet in 1980. A year later, she was the administrator of the American Ballet Theatre School when it was re-formed as a special scholarship program under the direction of Mikhail Baryshnikov and Patricia Wilde. In addition to dance and theater, Alexandra wrote a newspaper column about the arts, and articles for two popular dog magazines. She also worked as a forensic psychologist for 22 years. Alexandra has lived in San Diego California, New York City, Richmond Virginia, and several venues in Europe. She traces her family background to Montréal.
