EVE’S RIB (out soon!)

Eve lost her young son in a tragic accident. Now she struggles to protect the one child she has left, a teenage daughter who may be pure evil.

There is a deep chasm that runs between the natural ebb and flow of female magic and the charismatic power of the Ragman. Nobody knows that better than Eve. Desperate for a child, she’d called on that cunning conjurer seventeen years ago.  Her daughter, Abbey, had been the result.

After Abbey’s younger brother dies in a fall, Eve fears the worst about her daughter.  Five years later, she still battles her guilt and grief over what happened that day. Her husband, Richard doesn’t understand. He doesn’t know the truth about Abbey. And besides, he has secrets of his own to keep.

But when terrible things begin to happen to those who get in Abbey’s way, Eve must overcome her own pain and loss and find the strength to deal with the threat she fears the most — a teenage daughter she can no longer control and a past that could come back to haunt her in the most monstrous of ways.
