Are you ready for some fun and games?! I’m so excited to share the release of my latest novel with you. For the Good of All follows three characters as they discover who they are and who they’re meant to be.

  • One is a successful guide with his eye on the good life.

  • Another can’t move beyond her mistakes and pain to live her life.

  • And the main character is a girl who’s never been able to be herself because showing people who she really is would probably end her life.

Toward the beginning of the novel, one of the characters, Owen, must figure out who to eliminate from his team. To distinguish the best from the rest, he gives the plebes various challenges– brain teasers, escape games, etc.

We won’t be locked up in a room or even graded on our answers, but we will have tons of fun!  Are you ready for some challenges!
