Twenty-six years pass, Deanna moves back to the town where she grew up – back where her secret began and her life changed forever.
She receives a call from the police. Both her sister and her son are in hospital, critically injured in a car accident.
Sitting with her unconscious son, Deanna meets the doctor. Recognition flashes through her mind. There is something uncannily familiar about her. Could the doctor be her daughter? But she died minutes after her birth – or so she had been told?
An old friend is murdered and Deanna receives a note telling her to leave or she will suffer the same fate. What transpired all those years ago? And who is the mysterious woman she glimpses as she drives by her sister’s house?
Will Deanna ever allow herself to be loved and let go of the past? Or will her search for the answers lead to her death?

Carla Michaels’s life isn't what she thought it was. She met her loving husband in college. She had a career as a teacher. All she ever wanted to complete her life was a baby. After five miscarriages, Carla had almost given up hope of ever becoming a mother.
Then a devastating tragedy strikes and everything she had ever loved is gone—now she’s left torn and shattered, wondering if she can go on with life.
Unexpectedly, she receives an envelope full of books. Journals that were kept hidden from her. A mystery starts to play out as secrets are revealed.
Will she get a second chance at life? Will the hidden secrets destroy her?  Or will she find the strength to survive once she knows the truth?


 “Hidden Secrets” will pull at your heartstrings until the very last page. Some secrets are not meant to be hidden…

                          TALK TO ME


Crowded halls filled with noisy teenagers.
Teachers, homework, and never ending tests.
Hanging with friends, dating boys, gossip, and preparing for the future.
Isn’t that what high school is supposed to be all about?

Carly Boyles was once popular and dated the Captain of the football team. She wanted to be like any other fifteen-year-old teenage girl at Lakeport Central High School, but Taylor Ryans changed everything.
Two weeks after their break-up, Carly can’t find a reason to live after she finds her best friend Staci Garrison; hanging all over her ex-boyfriend Taylor Ryans, Carly decides to take matters into her own hands.
The rules no longer apply between two best friends when a boy comes between their once forever-friendship since middle school. One phone call changes everything and Carly’s world is shattered to pieces.
Will she find a reason to live? Will she tell the one secret that is killing her from the inside out?

Talk To Me is a gripping tale of one girl’s life that will never be the

same again…
