Gabe Mackie, a gifted child...wrapped in the wisdom of an old soul. Delightful, inquisitive, curious and vulnerable. The other characters feed off his uniqueness and as he grows, so do they.
Three generations of the Mackie family fight through the emotions of losing their anchor, each one dealing with the tragic death of Summer - a sister, wife, mother, and daughter-in-law - and the mystery surrounding her - was this an accident or something more heinous and if so, whodunnit and whydunit.

Astronauts are usually the only ones who see the rare red sprite because they form on top of thunderclouds and lightning triggers the burst of red light. Gabe looked up just at the right time.
Fans of character driven novels with an element of surprise, mystery, and family dynamics will devour this page-turner. A Kind of Hush embraces psychological, spiritual, moral and ethical dilemmas.
This little dude, Spark Pug, plays a role in this novel. He's asking how I came up with this story? The simplest answer is that it just evolved...word by word, page by page, chapter by chapter until the story was over. Insomnia is my friend. I guess if I had to produce ideas in the middle of the day instead of the middle of the night, these two novels might still be in "dreamland."
