Publisher: NAL


A dazzling debut novel about taking chances, finding hope, and learning to stand up for your dreams...

Everyone in Wheeler, New Mexico, thinks Joanna leads the perfect life: the quiet, contented housewife of a dashing deputy sheriff, raising a beautiful young daughter, Laurel. But Joanna’s reality is nothing like her facade. Behind closed doors, she lives in constant fear of her husband. She’s been trapped for so long, escape seems impossible—until a stranger offers her the help she needs to flee....

On the run, Joanna and Laurel stumble upon the small town of Morro, a charming and magical village that seems to exist out of time and place. There a farmer and his wife offer her sanctuary, and soon, between the comfort of her new home and blossoming friendships, Joanna’s soul begins to heal, easing the wounds of a decade of abuse.

But her past—and her husband—aren’t so easy to escape. Unwilling to live in fear any longer, Joanna must summon a strength she never knew she had to fight back and forge a new life for her daughter and herself....


I was born in Germany to a U.S. Army family, and raised outside a small Appalachian town in western Maryland.  I’ve loved books all my life, and began to write my first novel in sixth grade, about a girl and her horse.

The hook was set.

Since college, I’ve been pursuing the writing life as a career journalist. I’ve covered events from Columbine to 9/11. Rocket launches to inaugurals. Along the way, I’ve won dozens of journalism awards.

For many years now, I’ve lived in Virginia with my son, a dog and three cats in a tiny Colonial house (literally — it predates the Revolution). I still have my day job. But now I’m embarking on a second career picking up where I left off in sixth grade.

“The Hummingbird’s Cage” is set to publish June 2015 by Penguin NAL Accent. (Spoiler alert: There are horses.)
