Dear Librarian:

What kind of person would toss her baby in the trash?

Can anybody really ever relate to someone so terrible?

What would you say if that girl wasn't deranged with drugs or clinically insane or incurably narcissistic?

What would you think if that girl was the "straight A student," soccer star, college-bound, self-reliant girl who lived in the apartment upstairs from yours? If she were the girl you'd hope

your son would date? Or the girl you'd call to babysit your kids?

What would you think if that girl had things lined up in just the wrong way could have been you?

Read my novel, AFTER, and discover the gripping story behind the tragic headlines, a story that will capture you well into the wee hours of the night.

A story that will stick with you long after you've shelved it. A story that will raise question after question about conscience and consciousness.

And once you've finished reading it, please visit my Web site ( and let me know what you think!
