A seemingly normal day in the quiet town of Montgomery is interrupted by a violent storm, leaving Andy Rosetti in grave danger. There is someone else at fault for Andy’s accident, and Jason Davids knows the truth. Jason, the most popular boy in their grade, possesses a tight-knit group of friends, a gorgeous girlfriend, and a not-so-hidden thirst for drug-induced pleasure. When Andy rolls past him on a stretcher, guilt swarms Jason’s mind, and he begins looking at his life in a different light. Will Andy’s accident be the wake up call Jason so desperately needs or will it push him further into his destructive habits?

More of the Montgomery Lake High books were read in an Atlanta prison. Here is the review of The Right Person:
After working closely with teenagers for many years, I saw an urgent need for realistic young adult books. With teenage suicide, drug abuse, and bullying on the rise, I knew something had to be done to help teens realize their worth. Teenagers have far too much value—each and every one of them—to throw themselves into the downward spiral of substance abuse. Through the eyes of a variety of characters, my books share valuable life-lessons that point teenagers towards success and fulfillment. It is my hope that these books will help teenagers overcome the harsh battle between gaining social acceptance and being true to their own convictions.
Jason Davids glanced at his bedroom clock. Seven nineteen. Twenty-four hours had passed since one of the darkest moments of his life. He sighed and fell back on his unmade bed. He curled into the fetal position and tried with all of his might to will the horrifying image out of his mind.
He had not slept a wink in thirty-seven hours. He glanced at his clock again. Seven twenty. You can do this Jason, he urged himself silently. Just get up and go. Go tell them the truth. Tell everyone at Alyssa’s party that you found Andy’s body. Tell them that he looked dead. Tell them about the horror in Chantal’s eyes when she came rushing up the stairs. Make sure you tell them that it is entirely your fault.
A startling reality–life does not always turn out the way we want it to. People can strive for the best, set their sights, and reach for the stars. They can study, study, and study. They could give one hundred percent to their passions in life, or conquer their conquests and achieve their goals. Then the ironyContinue reading “Why I Love Creative Writing”
