Discover the power of love

Got No Use for Your Kind!


Welcome, readers, to another “sneak peek” from Keeping Faith.

Tom Henderson’s mother — a drunken whore who has recently been released from prison after serving a sentence for manslaughter — has arrived in Sunset, Colorado.  To his dismay, he realizes he’s not the only one who’s come to greet her.



James Gilman in SunsetTom froze at the sound of the voice. Slowly, he turned. Out of obligation, he tipped his hat as the town’s minister, Reverend James Gilman, approached with outstretched hand. Damn the luck! The last person he wanted coming to greet his mother was a man of the cloth. She’d likely grab the fellow by his stiffly starched clerical collar and shove him face first into the nearest horse trough—which happened to be only a scant few yards away.

“Come on, Ma,” he said, nudging her in the opposite direction.

But the minister caught up with them. He placed his hand on Tom’s shoulder. Rumor had it that James Gilman had once been a prize-winning pugilist before he found God and got saved. Maybe so. The man had a grip like a vice.

“Mr. Henderson, spare me a moment. I’d like to get acquainted with your mother and—”

Charlotte spun around. Her mouth worked, and out flew a wad of spittle, landing on Gilman’s polished shoes. “Got no use for your kind.” She wiped her chin with the back of her hand.

“Sir, I’m sorry,” Tom guided his mother away. “I’ll explain. Another time,” he called over his shoulder.


KEEPING FAITH is scheduled for release from Secret Cravings Publishing on July 1.

  1. Very telling snippet to introduce the characters–Fist-fighting preacher, which probably won’t be scared away so readily; a son who has had to put up a lot with his mother, and the woman who worships her drink more than anything… well done.

  2. very interesting set up.. I am intrigued!

  3. Great snippet. A peek at three intriguing characters, including the minister, and lots of potential for conflict to come. (Poor Tom has got his hands full!)

  4. I enjoyed the excerpt… great intro to Tom:)
