Behind The Waterfalls – A Novel

Definitely a Work-In-Progress, this is my first full effort at finishing a novel. I’ve finished the first draft (thanks, NaNoWriMo 2016!), but realize there is a whole bunch more creative work I get to do to finish it.


“Mantener a los demas” is the phrase that Rowena comes across in a land purchase contract that, once translated, indicates a need for buildings that can hold people as hostages or slaves. She and her mother go back to the family farm in the heart of the Flint Hills of Kansas to investigate, unwittingly avoiding a wholesale police action roundup of the citizenry.

Gina, who works with Dane, loses her husband to the a quick and peculiar illness, although all she knows at the time is that he is missing. Our main characters compare notes and realize the ‘required serum inoculations’ are killing people – what they do next will determine whether they live or die.
