Make A Statement
The idea for my current novel came to me on a drive along a busy, two-lane highway not far from my hometown. I imagined a young girl raised along this busy road in a traveler’s rest stop and how the travels and adventures of those who stop there would impact her dreams and future.
The book opens in 1987 as our young girl, Sara, meets a boy traveling with his mom. Over the course of the summer, Sara and Jesse change each other’s lives before Jesse ultimately travels on too.
Sara is the sunshine that Jesse needed in his life, brightening the darkness that surrounded him. Life continues, but the two never forget one another and the friendship they shared.
When that darkness finds Sara, will Jesse be able to able to save his first love?
