Discover a beautiful and deeply haunting tapestry of love, pain, magic, and healing.
In a single moment, Maia’s life would never be the same. Because when her miraculous virgin birth gifts her a blind, albino hermaphrodite, she never could have foreseen the fate that lay in store for them both. Adopted by a pack of coyotes and seeking refuge deep in the woods, a sheltered cottage and unseen helpers give Maia and her baby Justice a new life together.
But the world of the early twentieth century isn’t kind to unwed mothers or children like Justice… and when they’re forced to leave their hidden cottage, Maia finds herself struggling to survive in a man’s world. Her only solace lies in Justice’s incredible gift – an otherworldly ability to weave colorful tapestries that can predict the future.
But Justice’s destiny will call them, and together they will share her gift, bringing freedom to those whose stories need to be told. And as Justice opens hearts and minds through her magical loom, she discovers the life-changing impact that she was fated to share with the world.
Artfully weaving together a powerful and deeply moving story that touches on profound themes of love, transformation, motherhood and healing, The Tapestry is a magical contemporary fiction novel where the emotions pour out of each page, offering readers of all backgrounds a heartfelt experience that will stick in your mind long after you finish reading.

For years I would hear stories of a colorless person who wandered the countryside. A person with wild white hair and glaring red eyes. A person who was full of deceit and magic, playing the part of both male and female. A person who was without sight, but could indeed see. A human chameleon, whose many roles included living forever among those who walked before it, beside it, in front of it and behind it. A person whose challenge it was to live life forever. But then, I have to ask, “What is forever?”
Guest Post: How Did The Tapestry start?
The morning after the shootings at The Pulse in Orlando, Fl. The Tapestry was created. It was as if Justices’ birth gave hope and peace to the thousands of unimaginable deaths that were caused over the years because of hate. I felt as if there was no choice but to write.
