Episodic Prequel to Quail Crossings

Book One: Believing that family is forever, the Brewer family have always been a tight-knit bunch, until a bad investment takes their family to a desolate ranch in Tuckett, TX, just before the trying times of the Great Depression. One look at the barren land and the Brewer children find their lives changed forever. With their money gone, their father only finds the will to lift a bottle, while their mother folds herself into hatred. Their lives drastically different, the Brewer children must fight to stay together or be swept away with the dust of the Depression. Before Quail Crossings: The Lost Years gives readers a peek into the lives of the Brewer Children before they find sanctuary at Quail Crossings.

Book Two: The Brewer children start their lives after the abandonment of their parents. After looking for work in Tuckett, TX, Bill realizes the only way to survive is to leave the sanctuary of their home. He, his two sisters, and younger brother Elmer load up the old truck and look for work. It doesn’t take them long to realize that the road is full of both safe harbors and dangerous individuals. The four siblings must look after each other or be torn apart by more than the ferocious winds of the Dust Bowl.

This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it's done. It's that easy, and that hard.
