Whispers in the Alders captures the essence of what it takes to mature from a teen to adulthood in America. Have you ever sought escape in a book? Solace in nature? Endured the torment of a bully? Struggled to find access to higher education? Whispers in the Alders addresses these social issues and more in a lyrical telling of Aubrey and Tommy’s friendship and escape from the town of Alder Ferry. It is a story of tragedy, triumph, and the unrelenting power of the human spirit’s ability to overcome adversity. It has been described by some as a prescient examination of social affairs impacting the youth and young adults of today.

Whispers in the Alders is available in paperback and e-book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, and at the iTunes store.
