My initial reaction as I began to read Shadow of the Hawk was that the writing was fluid and graceful. The feel, mood and era all reminded me of John Steinbeck and I was hooked from the very start.

Sooze is a 16 year old girl growing up in the Great Depression. She has agreed to marry a man she does not love in order to save her family. She is mature for her age and you immediately feel for her. Her character is equal parts young lady and woman and the author does such…

You feel the desperation and admire the courage and integrity of many of the people of that time. 

This story is about a young girl in her teens who considers marrying a man for the…

It’s not that time….Elegy for a murdered son Trayvon Martin

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,

And a time to die;

A time to plant,

And a time to dance;

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4(NKJV)

“...I pray your death will not be in vain. We will stand for you… Continue
