Sword of Her Spirit


Christine Franklin spends her days writing for the local newspaper, reading true crime stories and hiding away in the safety of her small hometown, until her neighbor becomes a victim of a young woman named Tonya Travis, otherwise known as the I-65 Slasher. That's when Christine embarks on a journey to discover what drove Tonya to go on her murderous rampage and in the process Christine discovers a portion of her life that she's kept hidden from everyone, including herself.

I'm currently working on a novel inspired by a lynching that occurred on Halloween night in 1901 in my hometown and Abraham Lincoln's birthplace, Hodgenville, Kentucky. It's tentatively titled, Hidden Within.
