Darkhorse Press:
New Book:

VICTORY is bitter and sweet, tragic and joyful, often brutally real, but always stubbornly hopeful. Like a Huckleberry Finn or a Holden Caulfield born female, Vickie is abused when she’s young and grows up complicated, but never quite loses that “maybe I can" spirit. She achieves some unlikely and amazing things, not by luck, but by grit and heart and a remarkably different kind of courage. It's not about being a hero, it's about never giving less than your best. It's about taking the life you get, and making it count.
