The following is the synopsis for her latest novel, I Stand Accused.

Deep in the heart of Jefferson, Texas lies the secret to the mysterious nightmares tormenting James Adams, a handsome, successful eye doctor.

As the eldest of nine children, he's been the head of the family since the brutal murder of his womanizing father during his senior year of high school. He thought he put that day and his difficult childhood behind him when he left his hometown.

Now, his siblings are grown and everyone is dysfunctional except James--he thinks--until chance reunites him with his sexy, high school sweetheart, Tracy. Along with Tracy, comes a host of problems. A jealous woman starts rumors about his sexuality. His mother begins dating a man he doesn't approve of and one of his brothers is arrested on serious charges. While James struggles to balance the demands of his family, work, and Tracy, the past comes knocking--threatening his future.

Encouraged by his best friend, certified “playa” and cosmetics consultant, Ren Kinney, James steps into a risky mental maze of love and lies to discover what really happened the day his daddy died.
