Not At All

Maggie’s orchestrated soccer-mom life falls out of step when her teen commits a crime. Those lemon squares might not be enough this time. Maggie’s desperation for the story not to “get out” catapults her mind and her marriage into a silent war zone. Can she pull herself together and rid herself of the comparison trap to find both forgiveness and redemption before she loses the people she values most?

Meanwhile, Rachel has a peace that comes from knowing she was created for her career in pediatric physical therapy and yet, a single complaint from a baby’s mother has the power to end it all. Maggie and Rachel, their stories collide in Not At All.

Update on Path to Publishing

Summer 2021: NOT AT ALL, fully critiqued, is with my Editor. Plan is to query Literary Agents after polishing it.

Just completed the draft of my second novel, ALL IT EVER IS, about a young woman’s struggle to escape her family’s pain and reinvent herself in Maine. But will her journey bring her redemption or spiral her mind into depression? Don’t believe everything you think.


“It’s been years since ten-year-old Ryan convinced his teen siblings to take a turn on the historic amusement ride. Maggie had leaned against the fence and waved. Her kids bobbed up and down on their favorite painted horse. Their laughs evaporating into each rotation.” – Not At All
