Thirteen years ago, Sarah Richardson’s life was shattered after the tragic assisted suicide of her mother. The shocking tragedy left a grief-stricken teen-aged Sarah with partial amnesia.

Some things are easier to forget.

But now a familiar voice from her past sends Sarah, a talented mid-twenties ad exec, back to her past. A past that she had thought was long buried.

Some things are meant to be buried.

Torn by nightmares and visions of a yellow-eyed wolf, yet aided by the creatures of the Earth and by the killer whales that call to her in the night, Sarah must face her fears and uncover the truth―even if it destroys her.

Some things are meant to be remembered―at all cost.

Whale Song is my "heart book". I am connected to it on so many levels, some deeply personal, some bittersweet. Some of this I explain in the front and back of the book. It is not my life story, but rather Sarah's story...and I hope you enoy it. *A portion of my royalties from every sale of my novel Whale Song go to 3 nonprofit organizations to help combat social issues, like poverty, homelessness and addictions.
