New Series, Shadows Between Lies
Book One – When We Believed
This is a draft chapter in the new Book One Due for release before April 2021:
It is one of those sharp, clear Los Angeles blue skies in the middle of summer when barely a seagull flies in the baking afternoon sunlight. Venice Beach, crowded with skaters and hot young […]
