The Texture of Glass
Isabel Dillon, granddaughter of renowned songwriter Meladee Dillon, is trying to get her songwriting career started by doing local open mic nights. The constant jeers and hecklers by drunks in the audience don't stop her, but an incident that makes her wary of being out alone does.
James Gilbert has bowed out of music in favor of his quest to travel to as many different beaches as he can. Having recently given up drinking, he gives in to his buddies to go listen in on the local open mic night and finds a new addiction: the "little songwriter" who reels him in and then disappears.
Set in western Pennsylvania, jumping between Erie's Presque Isle and Pittsburgh, and featuring several towns in between, the first Songwriters & Cities book is well underway, with an exciting side project to be announced.
(Pre-release blurb, may change before publication.)
[The prequel to The Texture of Glass is a novella entitled A Melody in the Dark, featuring Isabel's grandparents. It was published as part of the Music of the Heart anthology from Fire Star Press, an imprint of Prairie Rose Publications.]
