I'm currently working on the first book of a Trilogy that explores our connections to events from the past. The first book focuses on the lives of Simon and Tessa Kingsley as they negotiate the difficult path between activism and passivism during the turbulent days of the early 1960's. Simon is a rising star on the evangelical stage who dreams of establishing an ecumenical retreat on the site of an abandoned utopian community from the 1860's. Tessa is his dutiful wife who struggles to leave her comfort zone to support his ambition when they come under attack from ultra conservative hate groups. Simon and Tessa are thrown into the chaos of the times and must struggle to find their way. The working title is The Stone House Legacy and I'm hoping to release it in early 2015.
