My next novel is The Lucky Escape, a story of one woman's impossible journey across America to recover her five-year-old son from her ex-husband. With no money and a volcanic eruption grounding her in LA, she teams up with a group of septuagenarian care home escapees to begin a road trip to New York. On the way she must face her demons, and take chances. Due out in July 2018.
The three Walker-Bell stories (Ryders Ridge, Iron Junction and Crystal Creek) are loosely connected and can be read as stand-alones, or as a group for a deeper and more richly satisfying saga.
