Dear Librarian:

Ashley Nicole Asher, age 15, was sexually abused by her stepfather for six years. She is removed from her mom's home and placed with her father David and his wife, Bev, in the tiny East Texas town of Patience. Together with Ashley's therapist, Dr. Matt, they are determined to pull Ashley out of the self-destructive cycle she falls into when she's angry. Her newfound family, along with her friends, are what just might pull Ashley from the darkness into the light.


I invite you to visit, my website, to read Chapter 1 of HOPE IN PATIENCE, and look around to see what award-winning authors have said about Ashley's story.

E-mail me and tell me what you think of Chapter 1, and I'll draw winners from everybody who e-mailed me with LIBRARIANS ROCK! in the subject line between November 17 and 24!
