Roxy Garrison found herself in a world she never thought she could possibly be involved in. A world that broke every rule she ever followed. Roxy liked to live outside of the social norm, but one thing she would never tolerate was drugs. Her small family spiraled out of control after losing her mother to cancer, and her father numbed his grief by getting high; his addiction was out of control. Any semblance of home she had was ripped away which drove Roxy to leave everything behind for a new life in the city. She never expected to find herself living with a drug dealer and working for him as his personal driver. Drug deal after drug deal pushed Roxy to her limit. In a world that strips people of their dignity and self-respect, Roxy found a love so fierce that she turned away from all of her morals and lost every part of who she once was.
Fearing life is no way to live, but for Jessica Garrison, it’s the only thing she knows. After she lost her mother to cancer, she couldn’t bring herself to live with her father any longer. The lies and deceit she protected her mother from during the last months of her life now felt like betraying the loving woman who lost her life. Jessica left her childhood home at the age of seventeen, expecting to find a life free from lies, drugs, and adultery; what she found was anything but. Forced to learn the harsh realities in life, she endured years of abuse. Jessica escaped; but her escape came with a price. Now, Jessica lives in fear of the day Brandon will find her. Will she be able to piece her life back together or stay trapped living in fear for the rest of her life?
Being the author is a new adventure for me. I love reading all kinds of books. There is just something about being submerged into an alternate universe. I love the ride that someone's story takes me on but more so I love the connection I feel with the characters. I will root for the underdog every time! I knew when I put "the pen to the paper" (really finger to the keyboard) I had something to share. What I did not expect was to emotionally connect as a reader to my own alternate universe. Stay tuned for promotional information on my upcoming release. Also, feel free to pop by my Facebook page and chat!
