Grant’s Crossing

I’m happy to say that my first novel, Grant’s Crossing, is really coming together. At over 18,000 words so far, I think it’s safe to say that my story and her characters are developing quite nicely. 

This past week, I’ve had a couple of rough days at my day job because I’ve awakened early in the morning with a great idea in my head that I just had to write down. I started writing and then, all of a sudden, a few hours had gone by and it was time to get ready for work! Who needs sleep, anyway, right? 

While writing more chapters and developing my characters, I’m also still working on how to describe the book itself. Like the story, that’s a work in progress, too! 

Here’s what I have so far. Bear in mind, I may change this 50 more times between now and publication, but I think this is a great start. 

I’ll start with the short version.

Grant’s Crossing


A woman in need of answers


A man living on the edge


A town in need of hope


And the longer version...



A journalist who relentlessly pursues the truth still can’t answer the one question that matters to her the most. 


An EMT who dedicates his life to helping others yet still lives his own life on the edge.  


A small town hit hard by addiction still needs that one catalyst that can bring them hope. 



So what do you think? 



Happy Reading!
