Welcome to Beautiful Ornery Dangerous, my novel, my characters, their world.

The Story

When Lewis Cook, a motherless young mechanic who rarely considers consequences, leaves town with Jordan Kytte, a twenty-something woman who rarely tells the truth, their world turns upside down inside of two hundred miles. Smitten with love, Lewis acts brashly in her defense at a liquor store -- and the pair flee a triple murder. Seeking refuge, they hole up with her sister and sickly “nephew.” And there Lewis finds a sense family for the first time – and he ultimately risks arrest for the good of his newfound family, rushing the boy to the ER. The rest is beautiful, ornery and dangerous.
