Masks of Morality (Book 1)

Debut Novel

Has America normalized violence as a way of life?

MASKS OF MORALITY is a contemporary rollercoaster about a woman who goes from a high-tech marketing executive to becoming obsessed with changing the world after becoming a mother.

It’s a story of moral conscience and using positive energy in every choice we make. A message to look past the deceiving masks of politicians and mainstream media on either side of the political spectrum, and reach into the soul for answers on how best to treat each other—how to be kind to humankind.

Written in the voice of a mother who couldn’t be happier with her life; the protagonist is surrounded by amazing beauty, a loving family, a large circle of friends, a beautiful home in the hills, and, despite her quirky emotions, a deep inner peace.

Her only concern is for the next generation in a nation hell-bent on having higher military spending than half the world combined and convinced it’s for the collective good. Isn’t it time we normalize peace?

Caryssa Flynn was a driven high-tech marketing professional with the computer network world hard-wired into her brain. The allure of power and money pulled her three-thousand miles away from everything she knew and loved — to Silicon Valley. Until she gives birth to her only child in her forties and nothing is about herself anymore.

Although never becoming anti-corporateshe is concerned about corporate abusive practices and conflicted with her beloved Silicon Valley’s emerging role in America’s forever wars, deep surveillance, and growth rate of the working homeless. What type of legacy are we leaving for our kids?

The Golden Gate Bridge is sprinkled throughout my novels

Set within the San Francisco Bay Area, Caryssa befriends a group of parents as eclectic as the cafes, shops, and surreal beauty surrounding them. Together, they ride the emotional arc of parenting within these tumultuous times.

This includes ANNA BEAUVAIS, a charismatic and successful artist originally from Paris living in picturesque Sausalito. Anna’s tragic past of losing both her daughters paints a portrait of the fragility and resilience of family, while a deep and abiding admiration for her emerges. Especially after she puts a boy’s life before legal greed. A boy whose car fatally struck her youngest daughter in a skateboarding accident. Living variously through Anna’s pain and strength aids in setting the path to what really matters in life: love, human compassion, family, and friends.

Beautiful Sausalito

Echoed throughout is a startling and disturbing emergence of a culture—ours-— mindlessly threatening to squander all that is dear to our hearts. This culture shock stirs the parent’s collective conscience, bringing them to understand the ache of late America.

Could it be that our political reality is stranger than fiction?
