Book 1: The Story of a Teenager Feeling Trapped

Available on Amazon now

“I should’ve killed myself this morning.

In a bigger city, being gay wouldn’t be so bad; at least, from what I’ve heard. But when you live in the Bible Belt, go to a small school, small church, small community, full of small minds, it’s not so easy.”

Teenage life is never simple. For Melissa, things are even more complicated. The first book in a two-part collection, Like a Mousetrap invites you inside the minds of a mother and her daughter who see the same events in radically different ways.

Melissa believes the only solution to her temporary turmoil is a final and irreversible one, while her well meaning mother wanders around blindly in denial. Will mother and daughter end up on the same page, or will this be their final chapter?

Like A Mousetrap: Book 1: The Story of a Teenager Feeling Trapped


Book 2: A Glimpse into a Family About to Snap

“I take the gun out and look at it in my hands. It’s all black, dull metal. It seems a little heavier now. Shooting at targets was nothing, but using it on an actual person… that carries a little more weight, doesn’t it?”

What happens when a teenager feels alone, unloved, bullied? There are many answers, but few solutions. The second book in a two-part collection, Like A Mousetrap Book 2 throws you in the middle of a family going through a separation. Take a journey inside the minds of each family member as they see one another in their own distorted ways. They think they know each other, but assumptions can be dangerous.


Book 1 and 2 Collection

Two stories, two families, two teenagers on the verge of decisions that will change their lives and those around them. 

Melissa’s family seems perfectly happy on the outside, but there’s a secret that could put their values into question. Josh’s family has some obvious communication issues, but suppressed emotions can have explosive results. Melissa and Josh have both been the targets of bullying, but have different reactions.

Told from different perspectives, Like A Mousetrap is a two-book collection of separate stories with similar themes. Delve into the minds of these individuals as they navigate tough life choices and experience the turmoil that leads up to those decisions. You’ll see that the characters’ thoughts, emotions and actions don’t always coincide. These families may think they know one another, but assumptions can be dangerous.

My heart beats excitedly, but I cannot deny the fear that rises up from within my soul.
