Wheelboys is an emotional, action-packed novel that follows a summer for three Alabama families entangled in youth racing – a winner of the 2020 Readers’ Favorite awards and the 2020 eLit Book Awards.

When his best friend is in a tragic car crash, Chad Gibbons finds his plans to graduate from competitive go-karting to auto racing with the legendary Kilgore racing family are put in jeopardy. Elle Dillanger struggles with criminal charges against her son, but the truth about her son’s accident unfolds as the detectives investigate. Monroe Kilgore and his wife Uma see their racing world very differently, and Uma is haunted by it. In this pivotal summer after high school, Chad meets a smart girl racer, Jessica, and together they are hurled into their future at a national competition – Rodeo Kart.

More than a coming-of-age story, this book challenges society’s complacency with the exploitation of youth and explores the distinctions between feeding young people’s dreams and the ones who feed on those dreams. The journeys faced by these three families are universal and resonate for any reader: overcoming grief, finding one’s path, and discovering love. $2.99 on Kindle.

black and white drinking fountains…


or so the label would suggest
and as i watch
where the waters crest

a clearness
flows through me

you see
i really understood
what these markers meant


is not dark nor dense
a reflection of my murky tint

a constant projection

of the contraptions they invent
in an attempt
to convince
the masses
that we are
of separate classes

you drink from a different spring
called white

but don’t you know
that these fountains flow
from the same pipes

which exposes the truth in life
that is always protected
through structural designs
and misleading signs
that disguise this point
for the neglected

wake up America


is always
