Spare Change

Reviewer’s Choice 2012 Award Winner! In a story that’s been compared to John Grisham’s The Client, eleven year-old Ethan Allen Doyle has witnessed a brutal murder and now the boy is running for his life. In the time-tested tradition of Southern Fiction, Crosby unveils the darkest side of human nature and then rewards her readers with a beautiful tale of love, loss and unexpected gifts.

Olivia Westerly is the only person Ethan Allen can trust, and he’s not too sure he can trust her. She’s got no love of children and a truckload of superstitions–one of them is the belief that eleven is the unluckiest number on earth. Olivia avoided marriage for almost forty years. But when Charlie Doyle happened along, he was simply too wonderful to resist. Now she’s a widow with an eleven-year-old boy claiming to be her grandson.

With a foul mouth, dark secrets and heavily guarded emotions, Ethan Allen Doyle is not an easy child to like. He was counting on the grandpa he’d never met for a place to hide, but now that plan is shot to blazes because the grandpa’s dead too. He’s got seven dollars and twenty-six cents, his mama’s will for staying alive, and Dog. But none of those things are gonna help if Scooter Cobb finds him.

The Twelfth Child

Trust, love and friendship–Abigail Anne Lannigan searched for these things all her life. Now, when she is at the tail end of her years, she teams up with a free-spirited young woman. A nobody from nowhere, who suddenly moves in across the street. Their unusual friendship comes under suspicion when a million dollars goes missing and a distant relative, claims embezzlement. Abigail knows the truth of what happened but, unfortunately, she’ll never get the chance to tell.

Reminiscent of Fannie Flagg’s “Fried Green Tomatoes” the May-December friendship of these two unforgettable women is sure to settle in the soft spot of your heart.

The Twelfth Child, a novel rich with emotion, humor and tenderness, explores the splintered relationships of a Shenandoah Valley family and their willful daughter’s struggle to survive America’s Great Depression and overcome the past.

Winner of The National League of American Pen Women Award for Fiction

Life in the Land of IS…the Amazing Story of Lani Deauville, The World’s Longest-Living Quadriplegic

Life in the Land of IS tells the amazing story of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the World’s Longest Living Quadriplegic. Lani is also a woman who believes in IS. “Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is yet to be,” she says, “but IS is now and it’s the truth of reality.”

In this beautifully captured memoir, Lani Deauville tells how in one moment of reckless abandon she went from a teenage diving champion to the edge of death and back again. Although destined to spend her remaining days in a wheelchair, Lani insists she wouldn’t change one moment of the amazing life that took her from high school dropout to one of the most accomplished and respected rehabilitative professionals in the state of Florida.

Her story is one that will amaze and inspire people from all walks of life and especially those who face such challenges themselves.
