This is the story of love and hate; of keeping up appearances; of unequally yoked and the unconditional love of a child. “The Swing” is the story of two families with opposing ideas of what it meant to live a “privileged life.” While you enjoy the Wilkerson’s and the Chamberlain’s, take time to identify behaviors that may hinder you from being a godly person.
How did you get the idea for your novel The Swing?
In 1997 I took a creative writing class. The initial manuscript to this and two other novels were homework assignments. While traveling I saw a burned tree, with a chain hanging from one of the limbs, in the middle of an empty field. The idea came to write a book telling the story of how that tree burned.

Which of your characters do you believe are most like you and why question?
Marissa and Jason because, like them, I always tried to find the good in everyone, no matter how evil they were.”

That love really does concur with hate. Also, that mental illness is real, and covering it up hurts the person battling the illness and those around them. It is devastating for everyone.
