Introducing Cosette!

2011 has found it’s footing and is stepping boldly forward. Within the first two weeks of the New Year I’ve found an old friend (thank you facebook) who I hadn’t seen in 39 years! REMARKABLE! I also had a great article done on my upcoming novel, “Cosette’s Tribe”. These sorts of happenings inspire me, giving me hope that I just may complete some key entries on my bucket list after all.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with my novel, it’s the story of a young girl who, upon finding a photo of a happy tribe of Indians in a magazine, becomes inspired to start a tribe of her own by first finding a replacement for her absent father.
Unaware of the consequences her meddling will bring, Cosette introduces Ken, a handsome neighbor, to her single mother. The chemistry is undeniable and soon the two become a couple.
Having secured the confidence of Cosette’s mother, Ken lures a trusting Cosette into his apartment and tarnishes her virtue with a shame powerful enough to alienate her from her doting mother and to shake her fragile faith in God.
Unaware of the abuse, her mother marries Ken, forcing Cosette to live with her abuser. Cosette is then pushed into a bewildering limbo of loneliness and adult problems, where finding her tribe becomes paramount to her emotional survival.
With maturity beyond her years, and an unshakable sense of humor, Cosette navigates through the hippie culture of the mid-1960s searching for her tribe, and facing off with life, while stumbling upon things both terrible and breathtaking.

I am currently querying agents and hope to see “Cosette’s Tribe” in print where I am certain she will inspire many with her story.
