The Boy On The Bus
Free Press.
When Charlie Carroll steps off the school bus one afternoon, his mother is sure he isn't the right child. Though he shares Charlie's copper hair, tea-brown eyes, and slight frame, there is something profoundly, if indefinably, different about him. Tense and atmospheric, this debut novel hauntingly details a mother's love for her son and the mystery that may ultimately rip them apart.



Sylvan Street
This harmonious cul-de-sac in a leafy Hudson Valley village is about to change forever when the neighbors discover a suitcase filled with one million dollars. Almost immediately, moral compromises are struck, boon turns to burden, and friendships and marriages are tested. Resonant with outside-world danger-from the echoes of September 11th to the recent economic crisis-Sylvan Street makes you wonder how well you know your neighbors, as it explores to startling conclusion the power and limitations of money.
