Greetings from Chris

Secrets haunt us. Secrets can control us, even if they're only kept in one person's heart.

My latest novel, Under A Cloudless Sky, is a complex unraveling of a secret hidden 70 years by a woman named Ruby. Her daughter, Frances, desperately wants to protect her mother from making a mistake on the road—so she takes her mother's car keys.

This, as they say in the writing business, is the inciting incident.

And that "taking of the keys" produces some unintended consequences in the lives of everyone in Ruby's life—and some who aren't in her life.

I dedicate this story to my grandparents on both sides of my family. In some ways they lived it because they were part of the hard life of living in the southwest coalfields of West Virginia. It was a hard, harsh life they built against the backdrop of the violence and beauty of those mountains.

I hope you'll not only read about Ruby and Bean, Hollis and Juniper, and the rest of the cast of this novel—I hope your life will be enriched by the story and that you'll see yourself in these pages.

Looking into You

Looking into YouNow available in softcover!

Every day, Paige Redwine is haunted by a choice she made when she was only seventeen. Now, just past forty, still single, she lives a tidy, controlled life as a well-respected English professor at a college in Nashville. Nothing could prepare her for the day Treha Langsam—the daughter she secretly placed for adoption—walks into her classroom as a student, unknowingly confronting Paige with both her greatest longing and her greatest fear.

As Treha sets aside the search for her birth mother to concentrate on her education, Paige summons the courage to reach out to her daughter, never dreaming her actions will transform them both as she faces a past she thought she'd laid to rest.
