The cover of "Scolding the Winds"

The cover of "Scolding the Winds"

I'm extremely excited about this, and I hope you are, too. It was over a year in the works, and it's certainly my most personal and most challenging work to date. It is based on many of my own experiences growing up in a cult (Jehovah's Witnesses) and working in advertising.

I would appreciate it so, so much if you would buy it and tell your friends about it.

What is it about? It's the story of Riley, a young woman who was cut off from her family after being kicked out of their religion. She is struggling to make it in the advertising business, and struggling with alcohol. And then, after all that, it gets worse.

It's a story about love, loss, religion, and advertising. My favorite subjects.

I sincerely hope you'll read it.
