Juliette Boisseau and Jacopo Celli were teenagers when they fell in love while she was vacationing on the Amalfi Coast with her family. Fate brings them together again 13 years later, but will their love survive when he discovers the secret she's worked so hard to hide.

          One of the main characters in my novel, Jacopo Celli, is Italian and a devout Catholic. He finds his life taking an unexpected turn when he meets and falls in love with a beautiful African-American girl, Juliette Bouisseau, when they are both barely out of their teens. Fate brings her to him again, but does he really love the woman she is, or is he remembering the young girl she was all those years ago? Jacopo’s faith is ultimately tested against the backdrop of Pope John Paul II’s visit to St. Louis, Missouri in January 1999. Register now to get my quarterly newsletter, and find out how Jacopo’s story unfolds.

Writing My First Novel

This Story Has Been Floating Around In My Head For At Least Two Decades.

It's Been a Wonderful Collaboration!

I have spent the past few months researching  Catholicism, particularly Black Catholicism within the Catholic Church. In doing so, I began to envision the main characters in my novel, In 36 Hours. They became so clear to me that I was able to describe them in detail to Ada Ezenwa-Autrey, my favorite go-to graphic artist. She gave them life. You will see more of Ada’s artwork in the following months, beginning December 15, 2022. I will write a detailed character analysis for each main character in the book. Then, I will post both my character analysis and Ada’s drawing of that character on the website. Let’s talk about them. Let’s see where they’re going as I tell their story.
