Sticks and Stones - Novel

Available for hard copy or ebook purchase online at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Target as well as available on digital retail and library platforms such as iBooks and Hoopla.

Sticks and Stones features 15-year-old Emily Greene, whose life changes dramatically when her mom is arrested.  Emily is forced to move to a new town with her grandmother, called Crazy Carol for her outspoken faith and quirky behavior. Emily is convinced her mom is innocent and that her mom’s fiancé, who has disappeared, is the one at fault for her mom’s arrest. Emily’s attempts to prove her mom’s innocence only lead to more questions about who her mom really is, where God is in all this, an unfortunate tragedy, and ultimately, answers she doesn’t expect.
