Billy McQueen works hard to keep his life together… and concealed. At seventeen, he can almost balance senior year with the illicit activities at home. Almost. Until he gets too close to the truth and finds he now has a price on his head.


 Sold by his own father into the modern-day slave trade, Billy is forced to fight for his freedom and for his little brother who is next in line. And in the end, win or lose, he must make a choice: to become the man he hates or the one God destined him to be.


Going to print...

"Something I Am Not" is currently contracted with Lighthouse Publishers of the Carolinas (LBC Books). Its release date is scheduled for January 25, 2019, in conjunction with Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
