In the Lowcountry of the Carolinas, a fiery copper-headed woman with kinky waist-length braids sets out to find her place to stand in the world as a healer and a seer. Jewel introduces the trinity of Southern women healers bred and transformed by a lineage of Irish, Cherokee, Cree, and African-American Slaves. Jewel is the first to discover the two-leggeds when she falls from grace; when her lust for the boy, Lester, draws her into the dark arts of voodoo and ends in an unconsummated marriage, a murder, and a suicide. Here begins the ancestral karma--seeds of sin. Jewel fights the influences of the two-leggeds (soulless dark prowlers) the rest of her life. She makes amends by passing on the tutelage of her healing powers to her nieces, Sarah and Teet. Jewel never masters the wisdom of the first miracle--birth--the gift of creation. Her hope lies with the next generation of women healers.

Literary Fiction

This series is underpinned by quantum physics, myths, and beliefs narrated by THE GUIDE, who describes our world and a universe, not only much greater, but also far stranger than we imagine.
Romantic comedy/Novel/Screenplay – (work-in-progress)
The Cosmic Order Bride combines magical realism and fantasy with human drama with the most unlikely of characters – a female African-American, llama rancher who orchestrates love for two lonely hearts with her magical powers and divine assistance from the cosmos.
Providence transforms the affairs of humankind . . . one healer, one generation at a time. The promise of benevolence is won or lost as Jailene battles the two-leggeds to claim the highest powers from her lineage: Jewel’s boldness, Sarah’s compassion, and Teet’s sight in total darkness.
