Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because it’s a day of reflection and gratitude. 2015 has been an amazing year for me. I brought the Ondine Quartet series to a close and embarked on a new journey with Leila Cates in Breaking Measures.

All of it wouldn’t have been possible without my readers so this giveaway is for you!

A Woven Silence: Cover Reveal

I’m thrilled to finally share with you the cover and blurb for A Woven Silence!

As you know, the current newsletter serial, Breaking Measures, is a stand-alone prequel to this work, which will be my next full-length novel release.

No release date yet on A Woven Silence, but Breaking Measures will head off to my editor this week and will be released with a new cover at the end of September (in both e-book and print).

I couldn’t be more pleased with this gorgeous design by Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations and I think the imagery does a great job of conveying the complex, intertwined nature of the story.

I hope you love it as much as I do!

A Woven Silence

In a small, forgotten town at the foothills of Blue Mountain, three children decide to take their future into their hands, changing the course of their lives forever…

Despite the unraveling of her personal life, concert pianist Leila Cates returns to a world she thought she’d left behind and is pulled into a murder investigation that stretches from New York’s glittering stages to the belly of the criminal underworld.

Leila teams up again with NYPD Detective Orion Frazier and what begins with the death of a prominent businessman quickly turns into a twisted maze of deception and betrayal.

Struggling with a violence spanning over two decades, Leila and Orion discover long-buried secrets that set off a dangerous chain of events. How far would people go to protect those they love?

An unnerving psychological thriller, A Woven Silence is a riveting novel of love and loyalty, retribution and atonement, in which four individuals confront their darkest truths and a past that will not die.
