4 Facts about My Work in Progress


(Christian) Futuristic Family Saga

One town, two interconnected families, three generations, and numerous lives changed forever when dark secrets come to light.  A coming-of-age futuristic epic packed with mystery, danger, and romance.


Time Period

The Year 2039

An era of unparalleled advancements in technology, as well as stifling government control.



A lighthouse on the central Oregon Coast

In a small fictional tourist town in Oregon, two 1880s houses stand on opposite sides of the beach.  One is a turreted Queen Anne Victorian, the other a charming old keeper's house still inhabited by the lighthouse keeper's descendants.


What makes this family saga so special?

Its futurist time period and unique characters

Most family sagas are set in dramatic historical eras of the past, such as World War II, the American Civil War, or the exploration of the Wild West.  None, that I know of, take place in the future.  Nor do many sagas employ such an ethnically and racially diverse cast of characters.  I am especially fond of my main character--a lovely young woman who is not only caring and complex, but smart as a whip and laugh-out-loud funny.


Stay tuned for more tidbits to come!
