I would like to tell you a bit about my latest book, and what inspired me to write such a story.
At the Edge is a novel marketed to young female adults and women.
Carm a farm girl marries her first love, and then abandoned everything she knows. After six weeks of marriage, when a devastating storm kills her husband, she’s a widow. In a strange city, torn by her loss, young, scared and no resources she begins to live a life she wasn't ready for.
Her emotions extremely low, and to make it comfortable to live in her own skin she turns to drugs and alcohol to self medicate. She is pushed to the edge as her relationships become tremulous. Haunted by her deceased husband and an introduction to Gretchen, a witch help her to see past the darkness. Carm discovers with the aid of witchcraft how to accept the past, celebrate the present, and anticipate the future.
Joan Kennedy, a very successful psychic from my home town, was my inspiration to put pen to paper. She encouraged me to write the unique story.
I portray the characters inner characteristics and emotions as they struggle with issues of their own. The characters are realistic that the readers will believe. Tough and practical Paige takes command; Roxy under a watchful eye intimidates; always helpful Lizzy goes with the flow and Carm is consumed with sorrow and mental anguish. To add support and conflict to the story are Thomas a friend everyone wants to deserve and Philip is certainly not safe to trust. I admit I am pleased if someone finds the characters likable and that they can reach them physically, intellectually and emotionally.
What about my book makes it special?
My story At the Edge, provides the reader real drama in a fictional story. The fictional story speaks to the reader about the pains of friendship - to teach them, not mislead them. The characters show the struggle some people go through and how they might come to a conclusion with the aid of divine influence. Amid the chaos there are moments of insight in the story.
