I am pleased to announce I have a second novel ❤
I am posting a small excerpt to get opinions.
Novel to be published next year.
TWO WEEKS IN MONTANA
Evacuate. One single word struck terror throughout my mind.
I’d never left my home in the tropical paradise of Jamaica, yet here I was being forced to travel to a land I’d only read about- Montana.
All I wished for was the courage to make the trip, but a meeting with an old friend provided so much more. I hadn’t seen Alvaro since we were teenagers. One simple meeting with him lead to an escape from more than just the hurricane.
It was as if I woke up in a different life.
Two weeks in Montana. A lifetime of Memories.

I was suddenly interrupted by the sound of an alarm tone resounding from the television screen. The words WEATHER ALERT flashed in bright red letters, drawing our attention away from my conversation.
Interrupting the black and white show, a shaken looking weather man appeared. “This is a weather alert for the island of Jamaica. A category five hurricane has formed and this storm has reached record setting strength. The weather service has issued an evacuation order for Jamaica. Be advised, it is best to leave as soon as possible. Landfall for this storm is expected to hit in three days.” The weather man abruptly stated before the show began to play again.
At that moment, I realized my only option was to leave the tropical paradise I loved so much behind. Safety would not be found here.
Little did I know, the evacuation would lead me to more than just safety from the storm.
It led to me an existence I’d never even dreamed of.
Two weeks in Montana, a lifetime of memories.
(Now I’m sure you all know where the inspiration for this book came from. Haha)
Thanks for reading ❤
