When attorney Cullen Molloy attends his fortieth high school reunion, he doesn’t expect to be defending childhood friends against charges of murder… 
In a small town on the high plains of Eastern New Mexico, life and culture are shaped by the farm roads defining the 640-acre sections of land homesteaders claimed at the turn of the Twentieth Century. Cullen and Shelby Blaine explore first love along these section roads during the 1960s, forging a life-long emotional bond.
As junior high school band nerds, Cullen and Shelby fall under the protection of football player and a loner, Buddy Boyd. During their sophomore year of high school, Buddy is charged with killing a classmate and is confined to a youth correctional facility. When he returns to town facing the prospect of imprisonment as an adult, Cullen becomes Buddy’s protector.
The case haunts the three friends into adulthood, and it isn’t until their fortieth reunion, that they’re forced to revisit that horrible night. When a new killing takes place, Cullen, Shelby, and Buddy find themselves reliving the nightmare.
Murder is an easy thing to hide along old country section roads.

Excerpt
There was a dead body in the next room and it was my fault.
     For a while, I stayed in the room with the body. The TV set was on. President Clinton’s face filled the screen. He was taking questions from reporters and they seemed to be having a heated exchange. The sound on the TV was turned off.
     I couldn’t stop looking at the corpse. What had I done?
     When I couldn’t stand it anymore I went into the kitchen. My heart jumped around in my chest like it wanted to leap out and flop around on the floor.
     The cops were on their way. I thought about running but they’d find me. There was no escape. I had to face the music.
     I’d made a mess of my life in just two years. How was that possible?

Rogue Prince cover

A war between Vampires is looming. The future of Vamp and humankind rests on my teenage shoulders. And I still need to get a good score on my SATs.

My guardians have done their best to keep me hidden until I grew strong enough to defeat the New Leaders. The same leaders that destroyed our kingdom and imprisoned my father. It is nearly time for me to reclaim the throne and set my father free so he can rule once again.

But now there is another claim to the throne. A prince who hid himself in shadows for centuries. A prince who let me think he supported me.

A prince who let me believe that he loved me.

That betrayal cuts the deepest. We are connected by blood, so I am constantly aware of Maxim, the so-called Rogue Prince. I know he has not yet revealed my location or sent for the New Leaders. I know I am safe from the ultimate betrayal.

But for how long?
