Maybe Today is about a teen who, after moving to a new school, encounters sexual harassment for the first time. Despite all of her attempts to the contrary, she is left by the school and her father to deal with it alone; but, through four years of Hell, she keeps her faith in God and her will to fight. Maybe Today is a story of failure, suffering, endurance, strength, faith and the ever-present drive to solve a problem that has less to do with her and more to do with them. You can check me out at and read an excerpt at Maybe Today is set for release in November, 2011 and will be in stores in February, 2012.
