Enchanted Jones, 17 years old, has dreams of becoming a professional singer.  Superstar Karey Fields, 28 years old, enters her life and exploits her awe and admiration with promises to make her dreams come true as long as she goes along with his demands.  Karey has 15 top Billboard hits and triple platinum albums....what could possibly go wrong?  This is a story about an adult taking advantage of innocence.  No one should be a victim.

Greenlights Cover Image
$30.00

Published: Crown - October 20th, 2020

This is a beautiful mindful book about "livin" (no "g" because it's a verb).  It speaks of life, family, relationships, love, honor, and values; there's respect, religion, discipline, accountability, and understanding differences, not leaning on right or wrong.  The book notes losing, finding, and making your way in life.

It's an easy, deep and rewarding read that will make you want to re-read it (and travel).

Published: Simon & Schuster - August 11th, 2020

One of my favorite authors....written in his dry sense of humor and commonsense way, always complicated but filled with values. Equally entertaining and rewarding; nothing gets past this loyal, layed-back Louisiana detective until the final pages. - Tara

Do you love animals and mysteries?

Every man wants to be the breadwinner for his family - but this man had a bad upbringing and just wants to have a perfect family and be a good man.  How could everything go so wrong?  A well-written novel with a dark ending, as he cannot manage.  Certainly a worthwhile thriller to explore.     - Tara
