Act of Grace On Sale Now!

Why would Grace Johnson, a bright, African-American high school senior,save the life of a Ku Klux Klansman named Jonathan Gilmore?

Discover the answer as you join Grace on the unlikeliest of journeys in my debut novel, ACT OF GRACE.

“Grace’s intimate narration and folksy-but-modern-Southern-down-home voice immediately pulls the reader into the story. You can’t help but like her: she’s sassy, she’s smart, and when her Nana explains to her that she is to be a conduit for their ancestral spirits, you know immediately that the right girl was chosen for the task.”
