Will Clifton discover his purpose on time and save the day? Or has the arrow chosen the wrong boy?

Sean Marrok lives in the Dredge under the controlling thumb of the Regime. His powers to see things before they happen give him the edge to win a two-million to one bet. But, at what cost? Framed for destroying Regime property, Marrok finds himself on a commuter ship to the prison on Roan which gets ambushed, landing at the secret base of the Network. There Marrok again runs into Ambrosia, the exotic woman who believes he is destined to be the Savior of the people, and Chantelle, the sexy charmer who saves his life…again. Will Marrok see what’s to come? Or will his third eye be blinded by his own decisions?
You’d think growing up in a Christian home would be a perfect place, but with parents dealing with dysfunction and its effects, I developed unhealthy coping skills to survive. After two failed relationships and an unplanned child, my adult life was spinning out of control. I knew I had to face the pain I was using as a shield. And I did. As I slowly healed, I noticed other women making the same mistakes I had made. When I shared what I learned along my journey, they were amazed, and they began to heal. That’s when I knew I needed to write this book. Restaurant Behavior opens the door to find true happiness, regardless of circumstance. The lessons are simple and the tools are easy to use. There is no place of perfection. But with hard work, honesty, and a willingness to change, God can transform the lives of anyone. Even me.
