SILVER LINE is a tale inspired by folklore, that picks up with Sarah’s son seven years later. Jared is 18 and starting college. Like his mother, he has extra-sensory skills, but he has repressed them until meeting Alexa St. Clair on campus. By accident, they discover they can revert to their former, older selves — a rugged miner and spirited dance hall girl living in an 1860s Colorado town. Lured by frontier adventure and the heat of romance, they continue to return. But in present time, Jared is focused on a journalism assignment: finding the missing art from the unsolved Gardner Museum heist. Through their evolving relationship, he draws Alexa into his orbit where they tangle with a stalker, shady art dealers, and a homeless man who knows a lot. When Jared’s leads eventually fizzle, he realizes that clues to the present lie in the past.

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.
