MY NOVELS:


Roots that Clutch


Jeb Anderson is entranced by his brother's lively sister-in-law, but he can’t act on that. His ex-wife wants him back, and they have children. Life isn’t like the simple country love songs he writes to turn a quick buck. It’s thorny and it’s tangled, like family roots, like the poetry that haunts his soul. Jeb recently managed to reconcile with his estranged brother over their father’s coffin, so maybe he can rebuild a marriage with his cheating ex. Or maybe he’s making the worst mistake of his life. Roots that Clutch is a contemporary tale of family, reconciliation, and the obstacles we must overcome on the path to mature love.


The Caterer's Husband


High school soccer coach Aaron Mitchell has grown comfortable with his role in his largely traditional marriage. So when his wife takes over a successful catering business and begins to talk of a return to college, he fears being left behind. After all, she's his only true friend. Maybe he needs a buddy of his own, a bromance to bring the romance back to his own marriage. This romantic novella is a light and tender story of married love, male friendship, and comic misunderstandings.


Piling On


Mark Bennett knows all about piling on, and not just because he plays high school football. Life keeps tackling him when he’s down. First his baby sister died. Then his mother stopped leaving the house. And now his father has moved them to a small town where Mark can’t relate to anyone, not even his own teammates. Well…there is one person who might understand Mark, one person who might see him for who he truly is: Lizzie Walker. He doesn’t know that, though. In fact, he only knows three things about Lizzie: her father’s the town drunk, her grades are in the gutter, and she’s the girlfriend of the guy who just punched him in the face.


Off Target


Sophie Mitchell may be the top marksman on her high school rifle team, but she has bad aim when it comes to boys. Her best friend Cory tells her that she doesn’t have to date, but how else is she supposed to fit in? Even her own mother thinks she’s eccentric. What seventeen-year-old girl isn’t interested in romance? So Sophie resolves to date even while she remains bullet-proofed from love. As Cory observes her amorous adventures from downrange, he worries that, these days, Cupid might be making armor-piercing bullets. Off Target is a sweet and funny coming-of-age story that can appeal to readers of young adult romance, new adult romance, romantic comedy, or contemporary romance. The story will speak to anyone, young or old, who has ever learned through love.


Incomplete Pass 


Six years ago, Tracy Tanner's father left home and never came back. Last year, she almost dropped out of high school. This year, her boyfriend's cheating on her. She's nothing like her neighbor Sean Wilson, the all-American, straight-A student who always has a game plan. Sean knows he'll be marrying his high school sweetheart and heading to college on a football scholarship this summer. That's why Tracy's puzzled when, late one night, she finds him slamming a crowbar against the wooden fence that separates their two homes. That fence won't be the last wall Sean tears down between them.


Escaping Venice 


Vanessa Grayson longs to escape her unambitious past in her small hometown of Venice, Texas. Fresh out of college, she's aspiring to launch a career in politics. To concentrate on her goals, Vanessa has sworn off men, but Nick Andrews is going to test her resolve. The attractive young financial consultant behaves like a self-assured man, and yet his vulnerability runs as deep as Vanessa's own. When Vanessa finds herself sucked back into Venice, she retreats into her armor of cynicism. She can't imagine anything more dangerous than allowing Nick to chain her heart.

Summary:

Carol and Daryl make their way to the quarry camp at the onset of the zombie apocalypse. Only when their worlds collide will old wounds begin to heal.  This epic begins with backstory and then follows canon through season 1 episode 3, with some “missing scenes” added. Later, the story diverges dramatically from the show, while still remaining set in the zombie apocalypse. The ensemble cast grows throughout the epic and will eventually include most of the major characters from the show.
