Lily Sequel Published


I hope you’ll take a look at my latest novel, What Missing Means. It’s 283 pages about a perplexing summer as seen through the eyes of young Lily Chavis, who lives with an extended family on a farm in 1945. Her mother is distant, her grandfather is losing interest in her, her uncle Freeman has a whiskey problem, and men cause complications for her two aunts, one because she has a husband and the other because she hasn’t. Though the house is crowded with relatives, Lily’s cousins move in over the summer. Her worry about whether she’ll have a bed to sleep in isn’t Lily’s only problem.

From Steven Bauer of Hollow Tree Literary Services: 
Among the many things that you do wonderfully here, one stands out: You manage to dramatize the hidden sorrows, problems, and desires of the family members in subtle and complex ways, without pointing them out or putting undue emphasis on them.
