It was quite a journey to write.
I started writing Fractured Lines two years ago. Normally I can write a good book in three to six months. Then I spend about three to six months reviewing it, editing it and filling in all the loopholes. This story was going good and then … life happened. You know what I mean? Those moments in time where you are pulled away from that which you want to do, to go and deal with that which you don’t really want to but have no choice. Now, this is nothing new, we all have things that happen and get in the way of what we want to do, right? Well life got in the way and kept me from writing. What was frustrating is that it took me over four months to get back to writing this story.
Eek. I truly wondered if I was going to get it written.
Things were going good …
I didn’t know if I had the motivation.
I’m glad I Wrote it
“… they worked to hide their love and their child … Complexities of the families’ businesses, not necessarily lawful and sometimes brutal, further kept them hiding their secret; while keeping this reader, on edge!”
“A truly fantastic story that has you hooked from the first page to the last. So many twists and turns, just when you think you know where this story is going, another twist.”
I am so glad that it came together finally. So many things got in the way of writing and publishing this. I love the story and I am thrilled with the cover.
It was truly a slow and steady pace that got me back into writing this story.

Fractured Lines Book Blurb
Family isn’t always what it seems.
Andi’s family has always been small, just her, her mom, and a few of her mom’s friends. But now her mom, her best friend, is suddenly hiding secrets. Big secrets. And avoiding her. The woman next door, who has been like a second mother, is now carrying a gun and sneaking around. And the man, Andi called Uncle Scott, has willed her a house in the country. But someone is already using it … to traffic drugs. Was Scott involved? Why did no one tell her he’d died? And why does her key unlock the mansion next door?
Marc, who has become her new neighbor, knows more than he’s telling her. But then he’s a lawyer and Scott’s friend. And living in a mansion that is well above his means. What is he hiding?
Unsure where to turn, Andi finds herself caught in a catastrophic lie. She turns to Marc to help her find the truth, hide the drugs, discover who they belong to, avoid being killed, and protect her family at all costs.
