I got the core idea for the book about 2 years ago. I fell in love with the concept, and I kept toying with it but did not sit down to write. Then, a cancer diagnosis in 2018 helped me realize that if I was going to become a writer, I needed to write. After my cancer went into remission, I sat down in August 2019 and began the first draft of what became The Penitent Priest.
Forbidden love, murder, and explosive secrets engulf Father Tom Greer in this second entry in the Father Tom Mysteries.

But everything is not as it seems…
