The TWISTED CROWN  is an emotional, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the life of the author’s great grandfather.


Eva Phillips, born a slave and lived free, is a woman of spirit and fire who undertakes a remarkable journey into the unfamiliar, complicated, and dangerous landscape of Post-Civil War South Carolina as she searches for the mother who gave her away.   The turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that await Eva provide her with the strength and purpose required to fulfill her unrelenting quest.


The TWISTED CROWN is rich in authentic historical details of the Reconstruction era, alive with truly unforgettable characters, and brilliantly brings a vanished period of African American history to breathtaking life again.
