Raven thought Roman was the ideal boyfriend taking her on a romantic vacation.
Eden Grace thought Hector was looking for a nanny.
The two teenagers couldn’t have been more different, but when they find themselves caught in the devil’s trap, they become sisters-in-misfortune and must trust each other if they are ever going to gain their freedom.
Roman has plans of building an empire of trafficked girls, but his partner Hector begins to doubt the plan. Will Hector’s conscience bring about their downfall? Or will Roman be forced to act with violence?
Set in Birmingham, Alabama, a city that joins Atlanta and Nashville to form the human trafficking triangle in the South, TREE OF GOOD & EVIL is an emotional story of innocence lost and courage found. It is a story of selfish dreams and plans that change the course of a man’s life. It is a story of trust and redemption.
It is ultimately a story of hope.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was living in Birmingham and heard an advocate talk about a charity that rescues victims of human trafficking. I had no idea human trafficking was something that happened in the US. When I found out how prevalent it is in our own country, I wanted to do something, to inform others of what injustice is happening to the young girls (and boys) in our small towns and big cities.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I chose three girls to represent each of the three cities that make up the human trafficking triangle of the South. And I thought about the different ways girls become entrapped in such a life and what kind of family life they could have that would provide the risk of being trafficked. Then I thought about the traffickers. What kind of men would do this? I didn't want them both to lack a conscience, however, so I thought of reasons why a person would care so little about others.
