FBI Special Agent Christian Morgan was abandoned by his mother and left at a London orphanage when he was eight. Rescued by a wealthy man and brought to the States, Christian is afforded a privileged life with the best military schools in the country, after, which, he becomes a federal officer. When he meets C-Lee Vaughn, he falls in love with her. But how can he tell her that he was raised by her father, Stuart Vaughn, the man she never knew, the father she had always yearned for? And how will Stuart Vaughn react when he learns that Christian, the man he raised as his own son, is in love with his biological daughter? Moreover, as Christian and C-Lee’s relationship deepens, how can he tell her that he is also an ordained minister? Will she see him as a conflicted soul? A Jekyll and Hyde? But above all, how can Christian and Stuart keep C-Lee safe from a madman who is determined to end her life? Christian’s Gardens is an unflinching tale of emotionally crippled people, each grappling with their own demons of forgiveness, abandonment, forbidden love, and obsession. It’s a love story that will haunt you. It will move you.
I enjoy crafting stories about broken people and their personal journeys toward forgiveness and healing. I do not write simple-told stories about perfect people, teaching life’s lessons to the imperfect. All my characters are flawed, and, as with life, some will find their way through their adversities, and some will not. Approaching my writing in this realistic manner, I feel, makes my characters relatable to readers from all walks of life. Mostly, I describe myself as a Southerner who writes with a moral conscience.
