Okay, I'm gearing up to publish the most ridiculous story for ages 12 to 14 girl (primarily), Cursed! My Devastatingly Brilliant Campaign To Save The Chigg. I have a terrible time landing on book covers and thought you might want to help me out. In fact, I'M COUNTING ON IT.

There's no way around it: music permeates everything. So its no surprise that my novel, Rooted, is In many ways about music. Not just the music of the punk rock character, Slade Mortimer, but music of a time and region: 1970’s West Tennessee. A time of outlaw country: Willie, Waylon, and Hank – Sr. and Jr. A time when the women of country held their own: Tanya Tucker, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly, of course.
Rooted is set in Northwest Tennessee’s Delta cotton-country: the remote land of my father’s childhood, with its muddy, turtle-filled waterways, fried catfish, and down-home people who look after their own.
