Shelf Awareness for Readers for Friday, April 28, 2017

Proof of Lies
How far you would go to save the only person you have left?
PROOF OF LIES is an adrenaline rush that transports the reader from clam chowder in Boston to a boat chase through the dark canals of Venice. My goal was to capture the places I’ve traveled so vividly fans would research airfare to Tuscany. I also wanted to create a family drama so emotional fans would cry and cheer for Anastasia Phoenix.
Even if your world isn’t full of superspies and clandestine organizations, by the time you reach the dramatic ending you’ll be wondering—who would you risk your life for?

What if you found a book that combined adventure and history—a way to bring the past to life? Spirit Quest is the story of an Algonquin boy as he grows from child to young adult.
I got the idea to write Spirit Quest while studying the history of the North Carolina coast. I conducted historical research into the lost colonists and native peoples of the Southeast. This book follows the Native American people who met the first English explorers of America. It is the coming-of-age story of Skyco who must learn not only the practical skills of hunting, fishing, and starting a fire, but also the importance of community, connection to ancestry, and the natural linkages in the web of life.
