4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Girl Beside Him is a novel about love, instinct, and the havoc kindled by nature gone awry. A wildlife biologist, observing a group of relocated cougars, attempts to repress the desires that he fears may make him a sex killer. In his struggle to understand himself, he finds an answer, but not without putting another at risk. A cougar escapes human confinement; a woman is freed of her dangerous obsession, and a man is freed of his deepest dread, though freedom comes with a price. Transgressive and addictive, Mazza once again probes the limits of human relationships, taking her readers into a region of dark sexuality, torn between love and destruction."--Jacket

Would her life have been better if she'd had sex with her supervisor when she was 23' Hester Smith is a woman who always played life near the sidelines-until she decides to rescue a teenage Mexican prostitute. She's up against the border sex trade in Southern California that works like a drug cartel, where the smuggled contraband is teenage girls forced to work as prostitutes in undeveloped canyons just outside suburbia. Law enforcement agencies know it happens, as do investigative journalists, yet the illegal sex trade continues to exist. Most people, comfortable in their homes only miles away, express some brand of shock in the moment they hear about it-and then they go on with their lives, assured there's nothing they can do. While she prepares for the rescue, Hester discovers that the man with whom she almost had an affair-her mentor when she was a 23 year-old student teacher-had been simultaneously having a sexual relationship with a 16 year-old student. Hester mines her own memories of the would-be affair and ultimately tracks down the former 16 year-old. When these two women with a shared scandal in their pasts confront one another, the meeting coincides with the last step necessary to rescue the teenage prostitute Hester has tried to protect. It is only this mayhem that allows Hester to finally take ownership of her decisions and regrets

Trickle-down timeline : short fiction by Cris Mazza( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the era just before computers, at the dawn of "safe sex," for a sub-generation of people who came of age without a war in Vietnam to unite them, the stories in Trickle-Down Timeline are glimpses into individual lives subtly influenced by the political and social milieu of the 1980s. For some people, the surplus and glut of the 80s were part of some other world, not theirs; and it couldn't be a "me-generation" if they didn't know who they were or where they were going. They were often just finding out what they were going to want; or they were, in starting out, already where they were going to end up
