Writing is discovery.  The greatest thrill my characters surprise me.  When I am writing, the rest of the world disappears.  I am lost in the most amazing world.  My inner critic has vanished, and I am free.

When a car accident kills Chloe, a vibrant and beautiful teen with everything to live for, the lives of her family, friends, and even those who barely knew her are irreversibly changed.  As the people connected with Chloe wrestle with her death and the role they may have played in the accident, their lives become increasingly intertwined.

While they grapple with guilt, loss, forgiveness, and redemption, hard truths surface, relationships fracture, and friends are found in the unlikeliest of places. Told from nine different perspectives, Intersections portrays a gripping moment at the crossroads of the struggle to find the light or surrender to the shadows.
