A Good Neighborhood
“Great option for those looking to examine the blend between liberal thoughts in theory and thoughts in reality. What do you believe in theory and what do you find when it's actually who your son or daughter is dating. When it's something in your life -- do you care about the environment in theory or when it's a tree in your backyard. Good, easy read with some lovely characters.”Gretchen, Little Joe's Coffee and Books

“This book made me feel all the feels! It was sad, it was funny, it was hopeful, it was everything. The character development is incredible at revealing what’s inside each of the characters, and the way their stories link and interconnect is genius. It’s a story about sadness and hope and human connections. I couldn’t put it down and barreled to the end, but now I am sad it’s over. Anxious People is truly the best thing I’ve read in a long time!”Lisa Driban, Hockessin Book Shelf
Big Lies in a Small Town
“The book opens in 2018 introducing you to one of its main characters, Morgan, who is an inmate of the North Carolina Correctional Facility. She is barely 21 years old and is incarcerated for a DUI - a crime that she didn't commit. During her second summer in prison, Morgan is offered an opportunity of a lifetime. Two women visit her and offer her a deal. She will be released from prison permanently and she will be paid 50K to restore a mural in a Post Office in a small town. The story contains two timelines that are weaved together beautifully. The second timeline is in 1939 which is when Anna Dale begins to paint the mural. Both main characters were multifaceted and engaging. The story is peeled back in layer and expertly laced with intrigue. I highly recommend this page turner. The narrator was a delight and delivered a 5 star performance.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys

“Set in a world that is possibly our near future, where animals, birds and fish have been driven to extinction by global warming and human consumption, Franny Stone is desperate to follow the last migration of Arctic terns as they head south from Greenland. She persuades the captain of a small fishing boat to take her on as a crew member, convincing him that the terns will lead them to the elusive fish he’s hunting. She must reject her own morals about fishing to follow the terns. And along the way, her past is uncovered and the crew put to risk; they themselves become the hunted. There is something haunting in this story, something unforgettable. This comes from the beauty of the language in opposition to the stark realities of a world where so much of what we love is simply gone. Franny speaks for many of us. What might we do to escape our past? And, more importantly, can we find a way to keep love alive in the face of tragedy?”Sarah, Loganberry Books
