About A Life of Death

Dreams of death. Small-town secrets. High school is the least of his worries…

Virginia, 1995. Alex’s only comfort is at his father’s grave.

Battling school bullies and a dangerously abusive drunken stepdad, the troubled teen thinks life can’t get any worse. But when he casually drags his fingers across a wrought-iron fence, he’s overwhelmed by a terrifying image of murder…

Convinced he must act on his otherworldly knowledge, Alex searches his small town for proof of the violent crime. But as his visions grow stronger, the terrible truths he uncovers threaten the lives of his entire stepfamily.

Can Alex get justice for the dead before he ends up six feet under?

Inspiration for A Life of Death

My inspiration came from my students while I was teaching high school English. Some would confide in me more like a therapist, and I often saw a need for something more—hope. As I wrote A Life of Death, that is what I kept in mind.

I wanted to help teens and adults when times are tough, to show that even in the darkest hour, there is more to strive for.

If Alex, the hero of A Life of Death can overcome the odds and bring justice to those who can no longer speak for themselves, then teens and others may be inspired to make it through whatever hardships they are going through.

They just need to learn from the book's hero to stay strong and do what's right in difficult decisions. Even when times are tough, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

When I finished this first novel, my beta readers included students who volunteered to read the book and provide feedback before its eventual publication.

  1. Biggest challenge was being labeled as an intellect. Hard to be popular

    1. Thanks for visiting. You're entered in the Giveaway. It's a shame kids chase popularity. That's the one thing I'd wwant all of them to know. Being popular is usually the best 4 years of their lives. After that, for many of them, it's downhill all the way. The rest of us find life is better the older we get.

    2. Congrats Neesie! You won the FREE audio book of A Life of Death, book 1. I'll be in touch shortly.
