I am so excited to announce that my young adult historical novel, A Fence Around Her, will be published by Clean Reads Publishing on September 8th. Here is a bit of a preview:
Having a mother with a past is never easy. For Ruthie Conoboy it becomes the struggle of a lifetime in 1900, the year Tobias Mortlock arrives in the gold mining town of Bodie, California. Ruthie is suspicious of this stranger, but her trusting father gives him a job in the stamp mill. Soon, Ruthie suspects that her mother and Mortlock have become more than friends. Can Ruthie stop this man from destroying her family?
I am so happy to be able to share my writing with all of you. You'll be hearing more as we get closer to the publication date, but I just wanted to let you know that A Fence Around Her will be available this fall.
