Author's te: The title came about during a conversation I had with one of my physicians. I mentioned that I was close to the completion of my Master's Degree in Psychology. Upon which my doctor stated, well, the next time I see you, you'll be a mistress, but t a head mistress, just a mistress, as opposed to a master. The conversation played around the corners of my mind, & when I decided to try to put the collection into book form, the title Pursuing the Mistress seemed appropriate.
