The Life We Bury

Now available from Seventh Street Books

When college-student Joe Talbert's writing assignment introduces him to a convicted murderer, he has no idea that it will send him tumbling into the heart of a thirty-year-old mystery that will threaten to end his life.

The Life We Bury is an evocative and twisting mystery and yet it is a book with a heart. When Joe Talbert ran away from home to go to college, he left behind an alcoholic mother and his autistic younger brother. As Joe throws himself into unraveling the mystery, he is haunted by his decision to leave his brother in the care of his dangerously dysfunctional mother and her abusive boyfriend. Joe must put things right with his brother as he struggles to uncover the truth about the decades-old murder.
