Severed: A novella

Young Adult - contemporary - mystery - 150 pages

When snarky college student, Rory Halstead, witnesses a crime on campus, he must go to extreme measures to overcome his neurological disability and help police identify the suspect before a girl is murdered and Rory is pinned for it. 

Witnessing a violent crime and abduction, giving a statement to police, testifying in court... These are all hard enough as it is. But Rory is neurologically incapable of saying or writing what he saw that night. The real mystery is stuck inside his own brain, unable to escape. Rory grows desperate to help prove his innocence and find the girl. But time is running out. What happened that night? Not even he can tell you. You'll have to read for yourself.


It’s brilliant!

False river

Adult - supernatural - 316 pages

For over ten years, the devil has had her claws in Joe's mind, body, and soul. But the power of choice can set him free...with a little help. When angelic farmhands arrive on the orchard to lend their aid, Joe must risk it all to save his family, or else fall into the devil's wicked trap yet again.

Set between the sodden riverbanks of Louisiana and the wooded peaks of the North Georgia Mountains, False River tells the story of Joe Lawson and his fight to overcome the sins of the father. But how far does the apple really fall?


False River is the BEST book that I have read this year! I liked that it was spiritually thought provoking and made me wonder what I would sacrifice, for the life of the person that I love most.

The Devil Went Down to Georgia with a gender flip. Red lips, apple trees, and angels in a southern town rooted with deals with the devil made False River a fun summer read.

Reed does a great job creating wonderful characters and charming dialog. Those two things can make or break a novel for me, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.
