Dear Reader:

Ever felt your mother didn't understand you? Ever wondered about secrets we keep?

If so, you will enjoy THE OTHER SIDE OF BLUE. Fifteen-year-old Cyan, named after a shade of blue by her artist mother, tries to learn the truth about her father's death the year before on the Caribbean island the family visits every June. To move beyond his loss and find her own path, Cyan must reconcile with her mother. BLUE is ultimately about hope.

Enjoy Cyan's journey. For photos of Curaçao, please see my website (
