Overview

Legendary rock singer Britt Jordan is at the pinnacle of his career-at least as far as the world knows. But Britt's voice is failing and a terrible event in his past haunts him every moment. He thinks that his life is a hopeless shipwreck...until the night he is stopped dead in his tracks by a woman's smile.
With the same determination that propelled him to stardom, he begins to create a new life with Dena and her daughter, Bonnie. Britt's presence in Dena's life brings more than paparazzi, however. His baggage includes a brother who wants to destroy him and a stalker intent on killing his wife. Willing to sacrifice any price to save his family, he finally must find a higher plane on which to face his past and his future.

About the Author

I believe the best stories aren't about perfect people. The best stories are about what happens when you back a flawed person into a corner. I like to squish a character until he pops and see what pours out.
Or more specifically, what pours back in.
I like to unravel a character until I get at the story he really wants to tell me. The story might leave us a little grimy in the telling, but we'll find out just what he'll risk everything for. We'll find out whether he's willing to let the story transform him.
Because I believe God's story is evident even in the grimiest of tales.
As for me, I'm as flawed as anyone. I can scruff along my daily walk not much different than the next person. And yet... and yet, by God's grace, I stand perfect. Amazing truth.
Perfectly flawed; that's me. Pretty much like my characters, when you get down to it.

Sheri grew up in Mt. Airy, NC, and lives thereabouts with her husband. Together they run a couple of small businesses and plan their next vacation. A graduate of High Point University, her first job was writer at a marketing firm, and she's been scribbling ever since.

Anytime I would tell someone I was writing a story about a rock star, I could see their eyes start to glaze over. Almost as if a cartoon balloon floated up, I could just about see them thinking, "Why?"
As if I had a choice! As soon as these two characters plopped down in my brain and took up housekeeping, they demanded that I tell their story.
There was Britt Jordan: quirky, restless, determined, forgetful, genius. Losing his voice and lugging a weight of guilt. Skeptical in matters of faith. It required a peculiar insanity on my part to house him inside my head.
And Dena: self-assured, calm, a mother, fearless, imaginative. Rooted in her faith; positive in her trust in Britt. Her melodious voice still lilts through my thoughts at times.
