Her first and true passion, however, remains writing.
“Turn Our Eyes Away” is written in an anti-narrative style incorporating elements of social media and electronic communication throughout the novel- the first of its kind.
At the start of the book, we know that a horrific tragedy has occurred, but details are scarce.
Set in Detroit, a young woman is found dead in the early morning hours of December 21, but there is confusion over who she is, how she died, or the circumstances surrounding her death.
In an attempt to unravel the mystery, the reader is presented with several pieces of electronic communication, which read like a narrative and describe the events that set this tragedy in motion.
Right away, we are plunged into the twisted worlds of two flawed, yet heroic, characters-, Olivia and Tiffany, whose lives could not be more different.
“Turn Our Eyes Away” is also one of the only fiction books to incorporate elements of social media.
“Turn Our Eyes Away” is available at major bookstores including selected Barnes & Noble Bookstores as well as on Amazon and other on-line retailers.
