Broken Benevolence
(coming soon)

The Story (In a Nutshell)

Coming Soon!

In Broken Benevolence, Dr. Alexander provides trauma counseling to crime victim, Cecily Brooks. Attacked during a home invasion, Cecily has more than her personal mental stresses to overcome.

More info will be posted to my Novels & Writings page in the coming weeks.

Settle into a story of triumph over the prison of a character's mind.


BB: Cast of Characters

  • Cecily Brooks: Financial analyst and mother of two, she lost more than her blood and dignity before the home invasion.

  • Joshua Hall: Owner of a computer tech business. A fan of James Brown, he's Cecily's 'boss,' and ... her refuge.
  • Janyce Mabry: The Brooks' friend and neighbor, she has conflicting motives and actions.
  • Leslie Alexander: Naomi's daughter. She's slowly bridging the gap with her mother.

More on the BB crew, coming soon.

The Music in Broken Benevolence

This image will soon link to the "Soundtrack" for Broken Benevolence

As mentioned, Joshua loves some James Brown. If you're familiar with the doc, you know she likes classical music, but this work reveals her appreciation of African spirituals and Celtic music. Cecily mellows out to Nina Simone. There's a chapter where it's a party, and well--there's a whole lotta music going on!

Music soothes us, inspires us, heals us. I like to include music in my storytelling because it's such a powerful communicator. Check back soon for my perspective on the music or songs I selected for this book.
