Honesty in stories. Truth in words.

Left to Die is RELEASED!!!


It’s out! Or, at least…it should be. Amazon was not cooperating, so there might be a few delays. Never fear–it will be soon.

(And no, I am not panicking. Of course I’m not freaking out. And yes, all my hair is still on my head. Well…most of it anyway.)


Yeah, this release has been rather stressful. There have been tears. There has been pillow-punching. There has been crying into the pillow that was punched. (No one ever said the author life was easy, folks.)


The show must go on. There’s nothing I can do about the problems at the moment, so an error-ridden book there shall be until the end of this week!


Okay. Honesty-fest is over. *scrapes up remaining bits of professionalism*


I’m proud to introduce you to my latest novella, Left to Die.



About the Book:

Lindy Greene’s life is perfect. Too perfect. But living as a missionary nurse, serving in a small hospital in China, soon brings the disaster she fearfully anticipates. All of her well-thought-out plans for the future disintegrate after pulling a fatally ill, disfigured, abandoned child from a pile of trash. She doesn’t even like babies.

Nathan Thomas can’t find balance. College suited him just fine until his cash ran out, forcing him to the Chinese mission field with his parents. The chaotic atmosphere in China does little to relax his agitated mind, and the pretty blonde nurse at the hospital does nothing to help him focus.

The Chinese mission field isn’t for the faint of heart. Nathan wonders how he can survive his remaining time there, while Lindy struggles to help everyone she can. With different ideals pulling them in separate directions, there is one thing drawing them together: a tiny, sickly, crippled orphan who relies on them to stay alive.

    A book about China! Chinese abandoned ones! Yes!. People aren’t aware of this enough as they ought to be. I don’t often find a book on the internet that I’m so interested to read as this.
