Middle-aged brothers Jason and Tom Prendergast thought they were completely done with each other. Perceived betrayal had burned the bridge between them, tossing them into the icy river of estrangement. But life – and death – has a robust sense of irony, and when they learn that their cruel father has died and made his final request that they travel together across the country to spread his ashes, they have no choice but to spend a long, long car trip in each other's company. It's either that or lose out on the contents of the envelope he's left with his lawyer. The trip will be as gut-wrenching as each expects it to be . . . and revealing in ways neither of them is prepared for. At turns humorous, biting, poignant, and surprisingly tender, Ashes puts a new spin on family and dysfunction with a story that is at once fresh and timelessly universal.

Thanks for coming by to visit. It means a lot to me.
Since my service in the first Gulf War, I’ve been writing. For 25 years, I’ve been able to explore the human condition in all its glory and failure. Each time I write a new novel, my spirit is returned to the desert where I learned that none of us is ever alone—ever—and that we’re all in this together.
Fast forward 24 years and I’ve written a dozen and a half books, with four of them (The Rockin’ Chair, Twelve Months, Pressed Pennies and Gooseberry Island) becoming #1 national bestsellers. And I’m just getting started!
To my readers: I could not be any more grateful for your support and loyalty. Without you, I cannot be me.
