Since losing her mother at age twelve, and experiencing a fractured relationship with her dad, twenty-two-year-old Beth is finally living on her own and experiencing a life of restrained optimism. Optimism, that is, until the sudden appearance of this invader. Then, day by day, as his advancements continue, Beth’s young faith will be tested almost beyond endurance. The emotional atmosphere becomes one of panic on a leash. What does this stalker want, and how far will he go to get it? Beth doesn’t know but she is about to find out.
What to expect in Uncharted Waters
Where do fears come from? Beth wants to know. Do they arise from the present moment or do they lurk somewhere inside a convoluted corridor of the mind?
My protagonist, Beth Davidson, wants love and affection but not the kind offered by her intruder or at the price she may need to pay. For sixteen years her life has remained on hold and now a predator is at her heels. Is the abundant life simply surviving another day? When Lt. Wilson, the officer in charge of stalking and domestic violence, interviewed Beth he spoke of power and control. Now those words sometimes roll around in Beth’s head like dice in the hands of a gambler. On other days, it feels like the gambler’s fingers are closing in for the kill.
Well, I’m switching focus for the next several entries and will be sharing some news about the new novel, Uncharted Waters.
As many of you know, my 1st four novels are inspirational stories set in the 1950’s. You can find them on Amazon and other online stores and, hopefully, they will soon be available as e-books. The titles include a trilogy: Where Hearts Live, Where Love Grows and Where Memories Linger and the 4th, a stand-alone, is called A Promise for Tomorrow.
Frankly, I loved writing about the 50’s, and still do. But, so you won’t think I’m stuck in the past, I decided to try a contemporary romantic suspense. Think I’m crazy? Well, you can see for yourself when Uncharted Waters is released this fall. I’ll be sharing more soon.
