TORY ROOF is a woman’s story – an unexpected romance and account of bravery – that pits logic against longing. The story takes Sarah Sutherland from the safety of her contemporary New England home into the arms of a fiery Revolutionary War agitator. In the process, she discovers her own independence and why she was chosen to traverse time. The present-day plot unfolds throughout the course of a year and dovetails with actual events in 1765. In trying to reconcile the two, Sarah learns that people around her are not who they seem, and that greed can infiltrate even the noblest agendas.


SILVER LINE follows a casual college couple who discovers they can revert to their former, older selves living as a miner and dancehall girl in a bawdy 1860s Colorado town. Jared Sutherland (Sarah’s son) had repressed these precognitive skills, until Alexa insists they are a gift. He finally agrees to use them to help solve a modern museum heist—and to travel back in time, lured by the romance of their alter-egos and adventures in the untamed West. Together, the twosome discovers that clues to the present lie in the past as their innocent attraction matures into something more.


ABSENT invites the average man – or the woman who loves one – to embark on a quest for self-improvement. When Carter Sutherland (Sarah’s husband and think tank executive) meets the lovely Tracee Green, a synesthete who sees words as colors, little does he know she will take him on four sensory-rich journeys that alter his black-and-white world. Regressed through several personas, past and future, he gains emotional intelligence and personal insight that helps him at work. But he also stumbles into black-market dealings and a situation he can’t escape.

The author often wondered what it would be like to simply disappear and do something else — thus the motivation for the Sutherland Series

10 Tips for Working with an Editor

Working with an editor means putting your ego in your pocket. Like most authors, I take pride in my work, but I learned many years ago that every word I write is not a pearl of wisdom. Better to think about editing like film production – where some of the best scenes end up on the cutting room floor. I did find, however, that the writer-editor relationship is critical and can be made most comfortable through mutual respect and responsiveness. Here are a few tips: Make sure your copy is clean and readable before handing it over. Your editor is … Continue reading 10 Tips for Working with an Editor

Book Publishing Means More Than Paper

Who doesn’t like sitting in front of a roaring fire with a good book. Many of us thoroughly enjoy the feel of paper on our fingertips and the smell of newly pressed ink. We give hardbound books as gifts, leave once-read paperbacks behind at vacation destinations, for others to enjoy, and we likely have a bookshelf at home for our family favorites. SPG loves print and has tremendous respect for book producers who make it come to life. But when conceiving and marketing a book, today’s aspiring self-publishing author must consider emerging tools and technology, as well as the fact … Continue reading Book Publishing Means More Than Paper
