A boy with an extraordinary gift, a woman desperate to reach Las Vegas, a bag of money.

"You'll be taken on the trip of a lifetime, with unexpected, often hilarious results."

~5 Star Readers' Favorite.

Eleven-year-old Benny relies on his love of action movies to navigate life. After his mama dies, he talks his dad into taking him to the Grand Canyon, convinced the trip will make his dad happy again, like in the movie. Benny's dad, Ray, just hopes to put distance on the memories haunting him and his son in their empty house.

Three states away, seventy-one-year-old Grace is having a full-tilt panic attack during her husband's church service. A split-second decision to see the Stardust Casino one last time – and a broken fan belt – lands her square in the path of father and son, who offer to get her to Las Vegas before the casino's demolition.

Then somewhere in the middle of Oklahoma, Benny finds a bag of money...

A fun, heartwarming story of friendship, self-discovery, and forgiveness.

Previously published as Father, Son & Grace.

About the Author

I got my break in publishing when I wrote about my first skydiving experience in a community college workshop and the local newspaper, The Oregonian, bought the essay. I haven't jumped out of anymore airplanes, but have gone on to publish and win awards in fiction, and contributed a monthly newsletter column for the local Romance Writers of America. When my Mt. Hood Community College mentor retired, I stepped forward as the part-time instructor for the Professional Novel / Memoir Writing Workshop program. I divide my time between mentoring the latest group of writing talent and working on the next novel. Currently a member of Willamette Writers, I live in Oregon with my husband and four-legged friends.
