Thanks for the question, Jon and sorry for the delay in responding!

The next book will be titled Blackbird Road. The book has been completed and gone through the copy edit process. It's with the publisher doing a final review and we're going through the cover design process. I'd anticipate a May/June release date.

And, since you asked about the third book in the series, please know that I'm about a third of the way completed with book four which will be called Asylum Road. We're looking at a 2018 release date for it as well!(less)

Next on the list is The Quiet Game by Greg Iles that came recommended from a friend and Stuffed: Adeventures of a Restaurant Family that was recommended from another. If I get past those, I'll continue to work my way down my ever growing Goodreads "To Read" list.(less)

REVIEW: I Am Not Okay With This – 4.5/5

Just finished the first season of Netflix’s new original series “I Am Not Okay with This”. I’d never heard of the series until an author friend recommended it and it came at the perfect time as I was searching for something new to fill in my writer’s block gaps. Sum total: You need to watch this show.


“I Am Not Okay with This” is like The Breakfast Club meets Heroes. It is the sometimes funny, some
