On a flight to Washington D.C., the past 12 years of Michael Warren’s life begin to unravel. An environmental lobbyist, Michael is on his way to testify before a Senate Committee, and destroy the plans for a housing development built on land tainted with the same toxic waste that killed his six-year-old daughter, Dominique.
A cassette handed to Michael by a stranger on the plane changes everything. Michael is sidetracked to New Orleans, where he learns a disturbing truth and faces the most difficult decision of his life: Shall he expose those responsible, or compromise to save another child's life?
About B. Roman
Since childhood, I've been torn between two worlds: writing and singing. It's difficult to serve two inspirational Muses, but I was compelled to do so. When I was not singing, I was writing; when I was not writing, I was singing. I've learned, for me, that one creative expression nurtures the other. Much of my writing has a musical theme somewhere in the plot, or is the basis for the plot.
It is natural, therefore, that my 5-book Moon Singer Series has its roots in musical theories and metaphors, entwined with the magic and mystery of metaphysical concepts and matters of ethics, faith, compassion, love, and heroism. Whether it's in my novels, non-fiction essays, in picture books and stories for children and, of course, in writing music and lyrics for songs, the profound connection between music, life, and self-identity is purposeful.
On the other side of the spectrum, my suspense novels are a departure from a higher consciousness to the mundane world of flawed humans, amoral people committing immoral crimes and eventually paying the price for their transgressions. Penning a thriller sort of grounds me and helps to clear my mind of darker thoughts so I can go back to writing empowering fantasies.
I hope you will delight in their messages just as I was delighted to write them.
