Dancing at Midnight: The Life of June Parker
After a fifteen year absence, Carolyn Graves has returned to her childhood home following the death of her mother. With the purpose of settling her mother's estate, Carolyn attempts to push past the emotions of their strained relationship - and her own anxiety - to quickly complete the process and be on her way. But as Carolyn begins to sort through her mother's private documents, she discovers a disturbing history behind her mother's early life. As a result, Carolyn learns the truth about her parent's relationship and the secrets they have kept hidden for decades.

It’s very simple. I love to write. Whether through poetry, song lyrics or randomly expressing my thoughts on paper, it has been my creative outlet for as long as I can remember. However, in the past year, I have broadened my horizons to include the publication of my first novel. The process has been a little overwhelming and intimidating at times. But the finished product was well worth the effort. I always knew there was a story in me. I just needed the right inspiration to get started.
In the meantime, I've spent the past 26 years working as a human resources professional. In that capacity, I have been able to gain tremendous insight into character development for my writing. By dealing with so many diverse individuals and backgrounds, I've come to learn that everyone has their own story to tell.
I currently call a small town in Delaware my home. However, my heart will forever belong to my native California. I grew up in Southern California during the seventies, and raised my three children; Matthew, Jason and Katie, in the North Bay area of San Francisco. I hope to return one day to live among the beautiful Redwood forest.
