I am the author of an inspirational novel (recovery fiction) written for women who experienced sexual abuse.
A domestic thriller about two sisters - survivors of sexual abuse - who must find their way back to wholeness and each other.
She's a successful journalist in love with a married man. In an effort to heal from her past, she uncovers a sex scandal that rocks Chicago and threatens her life.
After being fired from her job, she flees to small-town Wisconsin, where she must deal with the consequences of a one-night stand. Through all the upheaval, she never forgets the sister she left behind.
Years ago, she was on a destructive path of drugs and prostitution, and one man offered a way out. But marriage to Kurt is now a trap.
Her husband has one driving ambition: to make it as a first-rate restaurateur. When a competitor steals his clients, he's forced to fight for survival. The only thing he never counted on losing is his wife. He'll do anything to get her back, even if someone must die.
