Bramble Wood

Savannah, Georgia, 1866 
Will their futures be in bondage to their past forever?
During General Sherman’s infamous “March to the Sea,” Thornton Haley smuggled his daughter Georgia to safety. Believing her father committed the ultimate act of heroism, she agrees to an arranged marriage with her father’s former business partner, Colonel Hawthorne MacLennan. Just before she’s forced to utter her marriage vows, her father’s true motives and indiscretions are revealed before the congregation. Jilted, ridiculed, and torn from her place in southern society, Georgia must help her people rise above the former institutions of slavery, even if they never accept her as one of their own.
Captain Lanrick Kimball witnesses hundreds of “contraband” being forced from St. Catherine’s Island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. Seeking reassignment as an agent with the Freedman’s Bureau, he vows to bring order to the chaos of Reconstruction. Kimball follows the Drake family to Bramble Wood, where an almost deadly encounter with Thornton Haley’s daughter changes his life forever.
Toby-Sue believes this is God’s way to reunite her with the daughter she bore
for Master Haley and his invalid wife. Her husband Elijah, however, views it as his opportunity to plot revenge. 
Like Moses, will Georgia Haley lead her people to true freedom? Or will the
yankee scoundrel, Lanrick Kimball derail her once and for all?

Teacher’s Little Helper
set in modern-day Wartrace, Tennessee
at the Blue Victorian B&B

Abandoned by those they loved, can a child

without a voice teach them to open their hearts again?


Raised in foster care, Kennedy Walker longed for a family. When she inherits her estranged grandparents’ B&B in Tennessee, she plans to make a quick profit, and settle down in Atlanta near the inner-city high school where she taught high school literature. That is until she meets Cade, the non-verbal son of Isaiah Woods, who is on the autism spectrum. Believing she can make a difference, and desperate to pay off the debts on the B&B, she takes a temporary position teaching 2nd graders. 


Isaiah Woods planned to be the “All-American Dad” like he had growing up but raising his son Cade by himself is more than he bargained for. Driving an 18-wheeler, gone for weeks at a time, he’s almost saved enough to move to Nashville where Cade can attend a special school. When he’s stranded in his hometown, he begins to see potential all around him – including in the new teacher who is a “fish out of water.” Maybe together, he and Cade can teach her a thing or two about small-town living.
