Outside a Detroit jazz club, the night before a two day train across Eastern Canada, Sunny is stunned by the powerful task ahead for her when Daniel, her 9-year-old nephew, flings himself at the man who looks like his mother’s killer. Now Am Found, a story of recovery and hope from the ultimate tragedy in domestic violence.


There is sadness here, as the story unfolds, but also great humor. The story is about a journey across North America, by train, but it is also a journey of healing and discovery. I could not put this book down and look forward to more by this author. A great book. I highly recommend it to everyone.” –Amazon reader review

The love the author has for her kind, creative and resourceful husband and their three children is unflagging. I look forward to reading more works by this gifted writer.” – Amazon reader

A KINSHIP GUIDE TO RESCUING CHILDREN – For Grandparents and Other Relatives As Parents, a soft cover guide book for families facing kinship care issues. This book focuses on information about the services kinship care providers may need as they travel the rough waters of caring for extended family children. Information on legal counsel, social services, school issues, helpful community services, health care, and specific issues. The second half of the book addresses the importance of a local kinship care resource center, including how to start and maintain a local kinship care support center.


“A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children packs an amazing amount of inspiration, energy, and encouragement in an easy-to-read guide for relative caregivers. This book serves as a practical guide for helping readers understand the importance of creating a support network, navigating social service systems, and establishing relationships that will thrive within the dynamics of these relative families. Relative caregivers often struggle with the hardships of raising children without any support or encouragement, and they are truly the unsung heroes for these children in our communities. Finally, a book that not only offers resources, education and practical advice for these families, but illustrates the hope and inspiration that it takes for these families to survive”. - Kinship Care Specialist, Ocala, FL
