“Pulls no punches.”
As adoption stories go this powerful novel about a crippling relationship between father and son is one of the most heartbreaking books you’re likely to read. There are few depths of despair as deep as when family life is torn apart by dysfunctional relationships.
‘A son.’ These two words, absent-mindedly added to a shopping list, will change the life of Graham Holt, a village sub-postmaster caring for his invalid father. For so many years he as stood behind a reinforced screen, selling stamps and knitting-patterns, but now he has accepted that those two words express what he wants.
Graham needs a son; James Lennards, ten, needs a father, and thinks he knows what father he needs — his own, a soldier of fortune languishing in prison. To James, Graham is definitely second best. To Graham, James seems always to be several steps ahead. Which of these two is the father, which the son?
Adoption and dysfunctional father and son relationships are the deeply emotional themes in this powerful story centred around family life.

W hen high-powered attorney Helen Thompson discovers that her fifteen-year old daughter has been sexually assaulted, she takes drastic measures.
Finding herself in trouble, Helen must relinquish control and put her faith in a process she knows to be flawed. As a team of lawyers, therapists and women from a safe house help Helen and Phoebe find hope and healing, a sociopath lurks, waiting for his moment to strike.
A lyrical, dark fairytale that will resonate with fans of women’s literature and psychological thrillers, Ripple delves into the nature of evil, without seeking to provide final answers to the issue of what makes a human commit evil acts. And while the author takes readers to scary places, she ultimately shines a light on the human condition and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit in the face of great tribulation.
Dear reader: This book is a condensed, abridged and quite frankly, a cleaned up version of Ripple, A Tale of Hope and Redemption. For weeks after I released Ripple, I felt a tinge of sadness and regret because my own daughter could not read it. “Mom,” she would urge, her blue-gray eyes only partially-hidden behind her girlish, red eyeglasses, “Can’t you make a version of it just for me?”
I would laugh and smile and without giving it too much thought, reply, “Well, sure, darling. I could do that.”
“Because I’d really like to read it now, and not have to wait until I’m–how old did you say I would have to be?”
“At least 14, but even then,” I’d groan, “It would be dicey.”
And then, just yesterday, my youngest son asked me if I would come into his first grade class and speak to them about writing. Naturally I was overjoyed to comply, but first I had to run it past his teacher. I sent her a link to Ripple, and I could sense her cringing across the interweb. I followed up with a note in which I sent her a couple of funny chapters, ones that I’d read to all three of my children. “They laughed so hard they cried,” I promised.
She wrote back and gave me the all-clear to come in for a visit.
But all of this got me thinking. It isn’t just adults that need a book like Ripple. Little girls, young women, and even young men, need a book they can read if they or someone they love is struggling with difficult issues like addiction and abuse. I wish I had been able to read a book like this when I was a little girl. It would have helped me a lot, and I am thinking that this book will help the Phoebes of the world.
As the mother of three, and as someone who has been through many dark days myself, I want to assure the mothers and fathers who are reading this book that I think it’s appropriate for young adults, and for even super-mature ten year olds. I would encourage you to give this condensed version, which I have subtitled Young Adult Version, a read or at a minimum, be available to listen to your kids when they come to you with questions.
And to my fellow Christians, I have removed as much of the R-rated language as the story allows. The fact is that most teenagers cuss. And Phoebe in that respect, and in so many others, is like most teenagers. I also removed as much of the graphic descriptions as I could. The fact is, my friends, that many young adults and even children are treated, nay forced to act as adults, and so they must be spoken to as adults. I strongly feel that this book fills a gaping hole in modern literature. While I realize that Ripple in all its versions is intense and raw and in places hard reading, that is as it must be, because life can be intense and raw and hard.
The themes touched on in Ripple: Young Adult Version are serious ones. But these are things that we as a society must stop sweeping under the rug. In order for the afflicted to heal, we must be courageous and honest about what happens to more than twenty five percent of our children. More important, we must give these children and their friends coping tools and keys to healing.
That is what this book offers.

H e hid the old pencil-drawn map for 40 years.
The guards never found it.
After 40 years in San Quentin, Luke Palmer leaves with a state-issued suit, $100 dollars to buy a bus ticket, and a map that will lead to a promise and into the heart of a dark forest.
“The Butterfly Forest is a high-octane thriller that is part mystery, part love story, and full bore great storytelling that you’ll think about days after you’ve left the woods.”
– John Davenport (Orlando, FL)
College graduate student Molly Monroe is about to release rare butterflies not far from where the FBI used 4,000 bullets in a shootout to kill Ma Barker and one of her gangster sons in 1935. Molly snaps a picture that will frame something she never sees coming.
Sean O’Brien does see something — a predator. Between the sea of cars in a Walmart parking lot. Walking quickly. Stalking two women.
As O’Brien tries to prevent the abduction, he opens the door to a new relationship. And he opens a dark door to a horror that is secluded within the forest. He follows veiled tracks that lead him farther into the woods where an evil from the past intersects with a frightening presence to form a volatile trap with only one way out.
