The Devil’s Backbone – My Debut Novel Coming Soon!

My debut novel, The Devil’s Backbone, will be available next month. It’s a middle grade mystery-roadtrip-ghost story for readers ages 9 & up.

Here’s the blurb:
David Baxter takes the blame for the graffiti on the school gym doors to keep his friend out of trouble and earns a three-day suspension. His dad, the juvenile judge, forces him to go on a roadtrip to redemption on the Natchez Trace Parkway. What his dad doesn’t know is that David meets a ghost carrying the last letter of Meriwether Lewis - the piece of evidence that may solve the 200-year-old mystery of Lewis’s death. Thanks to the ghost, David just might figure out how to relate to his dad and forgive his wayward mom.

I’m very excited for the book (paperback & ebook) to be in the hands of readers.

Stay tuned for the cover reveal.

Yay! Congratulations on being so close to publication! I love your blurb! Although you've told me bits and pieces of the story before, it was so neat to see it all official like that. Good luck with your pub prep!
