Beneath the Silence
Secrets have consequences. If given the power, they will lead you into a life you never dreamed of or wanted.
Brooke Lake is a girl caught in a town and a life she yearns to escape. Full of anger, fear, and questions without answers, she runs from her problems only to lose herself in a world that’s too much for her.
Molly Shirley is a woman without a past and no foreseeable future. Her body is her best commodity, so she does whatever she has to do to survive.
Broken by lies, Brooke and Molly must explore the parts of themselves they would rather keep secret. Only by confronting the past can they develop the strength to create a life of their own making—a life where love and forgiveness never come too late.

About Beneath the Silence
Beneath the Silence is a story about family, about friendship, and about learning to live with your past rather than run from it.
It’s about having the strength to create a life of your own making.
I’ve been writing this story, off and on, for over a decade. It’s had many different versions, a different title; it’s grown as I’ve grown. At its heart, Beneath the Silence is the story of what it is to be struggling and lost and needing to find your way back to a sense of self. It’s a story I imagine each of us can relate to in some way.
