They say every face in a crowd has a story to tell, this is my story..

The news shows and newspapers all called it 'Road Rage'. To me that sounded like a disease, an affliction that can make you kill. A sorry excuse to take the claw end of a hammer and slam it repeatedly into the skull of a human being. In April of 1999 my little brother passed away. Doesn't passed away sound so gentle, even normal? David's death was neither. It was murder. He was found lying in a strangers driveway in a pool of blood. He had been punched, stomped and beaten over his entire body. I still have so many questions. I wrote this book at first for therapy and then for answers. I have found a few. I mainly realized l lost a brother tragically and senselessly. Like every other face in the crowd I have a story..and I want to share my story with you! PUBLICATION DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL :)

I write to express not to impress..

My blog has been up for 26 days now and I have 26 followers..some of my new writer friends tell me that is pretty good..Overall it has been a good experience..I am making a lot of diverse new friends in blogger land who are just starting to write or are seasoned professionals, all of them are inspirational and I am very grateful for their advice and encouragement.  Kate was right when she said it is addicting..I just want to write more and more.  I have been working on the outline for my second book which will be another narrative non-fiction; I am excited to get deeper into that one..but one day at a time..


  1. I like the back of the book so far. I felt three different emotions just reading that little bit. The only thing I can say is dose it mention that this is a true story? Maybe I missed it somewhere. I can't wait for it to come out so I can read the whole book. AUTUMN

  2. Good point. I thought the post's at the top where it says This is my story and I want to share it..kind of leads you to believe it is a true story..but I will add it anyone.
    Thank you!!

  3. Hey I found you! OMG why we met in cyberspace is clear to me now. I'm writing a novel to placate something so similar to your experience with your brother. I am so sorry that you lost him in such a senesless way. I'm working on a fiction piece about a girl that died across the street at a drug infested mansion. Also, a journalist piece on drugs in the neighborhood. Although my situation isn't as personal, it bothers me every day that the people across the street got away with murder.

  4. Kathy,
    Thanks for stopping by!! Your novel sounds fascinating (glad it is fiction) In my case the people down the street DID get away with murder!
