Posted in Dissonance, Malcolm Stone, Writing Samples


I have talked and talked about Reverie, the second book in the Malcolm Stone Series, but I haven’t mentioned much about Dissonance, the first book in the series.  Why you may ask?  Well because I am still in the course of writing it.  When I started writing the two books were one, until I realized I had a lot more story to tell than the confines of one book would allow.  After I made the decision there would need to be at least two books to tell Malcolm’s story, I decided to remain writing the second part.  The first part was more emotionally charged and I thought I needed to grow more as a writer before I could actually portray the story I wanted to tell.

Dissonance is a challenge to write and I am having a blast doing so.  I can tell already the style of my writing will cause some changes to Reverie, but that’s what re-writes are for anyway.  I thought I would share the draft of first two chapters of Dissonance with you.  Let me know what you think.

Dissonance – Chapter 1 & 2



I am a writer currently working on her first series featuring Malcolm Stone. I also dabble in photography cooking and enjoying life. Synopsis of Dissonance (Book I in the series): Malcolm is youngest son of Preston Stone, the largest liquor importer on the east coast since the prohibition. His family’s affluence has afforded him the opportunity to follow his passion of being a pianist. He married a successful local artist Anabelle Connolly. They appeared to have the perfect life, but it had turned sour. After Anabelle’s death, the truth of their marriage can no longer be hidden. Years of Malcolm’s carefully constructed lies start unraveling at his feet. Will he be able to pick up the pieces of his shattered life? Dissonance explores and exposes a violent relationship, infidelity, substance abuse, depression, and lies.
