Sarah’s fear of abandonment has come to pass. Her only known loved one, Mama Leanne has died. Rather

than deal with the harrowing truth, she attempts to preserve her body and chant away the pain. The old

windows of her tattered country house can’t confine the rising stench. The authorities whisk Sarah away,

safely into the arm of her estranged uncle, Joel Lancaster.

Joel is a community favorite in his small town of Chelsea, Pennsylvania, and is known for being a defender of

the downtrodden. There’s no better place for Sarah to  live, grow and be protected; but protection is what

she will soon need, physically, emotionally and spiritually, once Uncle Joel takes an unwholesome fancy to her.

In a town where prestige prevails, Sarah can’t lift her voice loud enough to expose the truth, especially as a

tragic accident appears to wipe out Joel’s short-term memory. Forgiving the indiscretions he can no longer

remember becomes a gnawing question for Sarah, but when a treacherous family secret is uncovered, one

that could have perhaps led to Mama Leanne’s early demise; Sarah prefers nothing less than to see Joel, this

so-called community pillar crumble to his knees.

Sarah’s Silence-The Walk

Details Coming Soon

 Sitting on my baby brother’s bed beside the friend of the family, I could hear the sizzling of bacon, the sound of Mama clanging her pots not even ten feet away. Yet, friend of the family was still bold enough to shove his long tentacle-like fingers down my sunflower printed panties.

“Jack climbed up the beanstalk!” friend of the family thundered, as his fingers explored the most intimate part of me. I’d never look at that book filled with childhood fables that he held with his free hand again, but would have to entertain his indiscretions for more months than I dare recollect.

His patience, his kindness was nothing more than a smoke screen that left Mama behind a veil of blindness, as she ushered us kids over into his care. Behind his smile, behind every sly grin-ill intentions lingered.

House lights dimmed, bedroom door shut, friend of the family would snuggle on our tattered brown and beige couch just waiting for the nights stillness to give passage into our bedroom.

Q&A’s

As I child, I loved to play with dolls. There was always a story brewing in my head that I had to reenact. Poor Barbie always had some dilemma. (smile) In my early twenties, I discovered that writing could be used as a platform; So, I put pen to paper, and began to write skits and plays for my church and community.
Sarah is inspired by the many of us who have been sexually abused.  Before writing this several years ago, I was speaking with a young girl in her mid-teens. I asked her in just, how she was feeling, and didn’t expect her forward replied. She told me she felt dead. “Dead?”, I repeated, in shock. She went on to tell me that her stepfather was sexually abusing her.  Now, this young lady just happened to be Hispanic, but contrary to what many may think, sexual abuse occurs in all ethnic groups.  So, my characters name is Sarah, because it transcends cultural lines.  And Silence of course is the state many victims suffer through because to say you were sexually assaulted is like a badge of shame.
Yes. There are a few questions I intentionally left unanswered to make room for another book.
