Upcoming books I am writing for publication sometime in 2007.
MY TICKET TO COAL BANKS (a novel)
Kate was on an early morning passenger train streaking across the Montana prairies to North Dakota. She was about to turn one hundred years old and she had at last found the missing pieces of her life's puzzle and was returning to the place of her birth as a final capstone of her never ending search for answers.
Her puzzle, for most of her life, was to find out what happened to her between the ages of six and eight. This time frame was an absolute blank to her. Her revelation finally came to her in a dream in which it was difficult to determine the difference between the dream itself and reality.
Kate had a never say die personality and gives empowerment and hope to everyone, no matter the age, to never give up and continue reaching for the stars to secure your dreams. Its a poignant and fanciful saga with an ending that no one, especially Kate, could have imagined.
