Caught up in the maze of metal and mortal are a twenty-something slacker with no clue about where his life is going, a conspiracy-addled recluse who thinks this is another piece to the puzzle, the tween daughter of a traveling evangelical preacher hell bent on breaking the rules, and finally a young woman who wakes up in the morning not planning to see the end of the day.
Their lives and stories weave into each other to create a safety net for some and an unwanted cage for others.

Random tidbits: This was an amazing journey to undertake as my debut novel and while I am working hard on promoting it and getting it into the hands of as many people as possible, I am also underway on my next novel. It will be a switch of genre as this story is much more of a thriller about an adopted young man who uncovers some terrible truths about his lineage. It's a battle between nature and nurture to determine which road he will take.
