Thirteen-year-old Rodney Becker has discovered the secret of playing every song in the world. Hoodoo!
Rodney’s dream of joining a real band has come true, and the bandleader has already booked their first gig—her cousin’s birthday party. Now, Rodney has a week to learn the most difficult guitar part ever for the birthday girl’s favorite song. Failure could mean his rival, Eddie Manford, taking his place.
Rodney has dabbled with spells before, and he knows there can be consequences. Like losing his voice after trying a spell to help him sing, and a car accident that may take someone’s life. Rodney’s search for a magical fix leads him to a crossroads at midnight, waiting for a man to tune his guitar. Some say the man who shows up will be the devil—coming for Rodney’s soul!
Can Rodney afford to pay the price?

At the Crossroads – Blues Bones II was scheduled to be released July 22, 2019 by publisher Leap Books LLC. Leap Books closed April 26, 2019. We were in the final stages of edits when this happened, and all rights of book one and book two reverted to me. I decided to self publish and contacted Kelly Hashway, the editor for Leap Books who acquired the original Blues Bones but left Leap Books not long after book one was released. Hashway, a professional freelance editor and USA Today bestselling author, was a lifesaver. To the best editor ever, thank you! (KellyHashway.com)
Look for At The Crossroads July 26th!

Happy Birthday to PeterFrampton! @PeterFrampton. One of my guitar heroes. Some of my favorites are Baby I Love Your Way, Penny for Your Thoughts, Do You Feel like We Do, and Show Me the Way!
After seeing him on the Mike Douglas Show, I even modified an old cassette recorder to make a Talkbox using its microphone and part of a water hose! Maybe this explains Max’s love of electronics in my book Blues Bones.
Looking forward to At the Crossroads-Blues Bones II’s book birthday on July 22! Remembering how much I struggled to learn to play Penny for Your Thoughts inspired a major event in book two!
