rhythms on a flaming drum

My new novel, rhythms on a flaming drum, is now available from Pisgah Press.

Caitlin Schmidt didn’t set out to be an enemy of the State in an America more repressive than our own. Activism found her. She just happened to be there when a reluctant hero of the Great Memphis Quake rekindled a spirit of resistance that had previously gotten her into trouble.

But opposition to free market expediency is defined as terrorism and the secret police of the Integrated Security Authority are ruthless.
