Today I published the first book of a new legal thriller series.

It’s called “I Swear To Tell” and it centers on a young woman who’s out to make her mark as a defense attorney in Washington, D.C.

Her name is Cadence Elliott. She is smart and ambitious but she has some serious personal issues to deal with.

Her client in this story is another young woman who is accused of critically wounding a neo-Nazi during a violent protest.

This book is obviously not drawn from recent events (as it was published, thousands of people were gathered outside the White House to protest the killing of George Floyd).

But I was alarmed to see issues that it touches on—like the agendas of radical political fringe groups—rise to the surface during the riots and protests that have spilled out across America.

I’m super proud of my little story and I hope that it can be read and enjoyed for what it is—a piece of entertainment that seems, while you’re immersed in its pages, grippingly real.

If only the reality unfolding around us right now was less disturbing than the fictional drama I dreamed up.

    This book was a great read. I could not put it down and the ending was such a shocker. Great story telling. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
