Casey Wheeler is fleeing from her abusive and unfaithful husband

“I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, the second of four children. Growing up with the influence of a long line of teachers with a passion for classical education, my time was filled with lessons in violin, cello, piano, ballet…and not-so-classical Girl Scouts and softball.
At the age of twelve, I traveled throughout Europe with my Grandmother and aunts, who filled my days with the shared reading of classics such as Jane Eyre and Sherlock Holmes, developing my love of literature early on.
I pursued my love of literature into college, earning a Bachelor’s of English, a Master’s of Education, and I am currently working to complete a Master’s in English.
My first novel, All the Wrong Places, started as a short story for a creative writing course and chronicles many of my experiences living in a mortuary, raising my daughter on my own and discovering my Christian faith.
My years in college writing programs have left me with a varied collection of short stories, plays and poetry covering many personal experiences from teenage rebellion to single-motherhood and spiritual awakening.
While writing and continuing my own education, I taught High School English in an attempt to pass my love of literature and writing on to others, and continue to share that passion with students and other aspiring writers.
I currently spend my days pursuing my creative dreams and reaching out to women to share my experience, strength and hope as a survivor of sexual assault and domestic abuse. 
I reside in Eagle, Idaho with my husband,  and my very large cat. “

Driving aimlessly through the stormy suburbs of San Francisco, Casey Wheeler is fleeing from her abusive and unfaithful husband with her five year old daughter Maddy asleep in the backseat. With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, Casey loses control of her emotions and her car, crashing into a hillside below a mortuary. 
 
Desperately seeking shelter, and more so independence, she finds herself taken in by the mortuary director who apprehensively offers her a job and a place to live. As she stumbles through the ins and outs of her new and morbid surroundings, Casey is forced into a hostile custody battle with her relentless and increasingly violent husband. 
 
In the midst of all the chaos, she finds a new family and even love in the eccentric and protective people of Golden Oaks Funeral Home. But just when she has found all she could hope for, she will have to fight to the death to protect it.

 

This semi-autobiographical story of a single-mother and her journey to self-discovery, independence and a true understanding of love will keep readers captivated and yearning for more.
Snippet:
He was so becoming in his black suit, and I felt a slight and unfamiliar
kind of attraction to him. He had a warm smile spread across his face that made
me feel at home. What an odd feeling. Nobody had taken me in like he had, not
without an expectation of something in return. Would there be an
expectation?

Award-winning
author, Chariss K. Walker, M.Msc., writes both fiction and nonfiction
books with a metaphysical and spiritual component. Her fiction
expresses a visionary/metaphysical message that illustrates growth in
a character’s consciousness while utilizing a paranormal aspect. Her
nonfiction books share insight, hope, and inspiration. Even though
Chariss writes dark-fiction about insanely dark topics, such as
sexual abuse, incest, pedophilia, sexual assault, and other
inappropriate dinner conversation, there is always an essential
question of the abstract nature that gives a reader increasing
awareness and perception. All of her books are sold worldwide in
eBook, paperback, and many are in large print.
