Pressing Matters - Novel
Pressing Matters Cover

Coffee shop rumor says the mayor was picked up for drunk driving for at least the third time, but a recheck of the police log makes no mention of it. Quickly it becomes clear that shenanigans are dancing at the cop shop and the police chief operates from both sides of his badge. Weekly newspaper publisher, Preston “Press” Williams’ investigation shatters his life and family, as well as his small town’s serenity.

Excerpts from Press’ weekly column, “Pressing Matters,” help provide insights into the frustration, turmoil and loss a newspaper publisher – and first and foremost a father – faces as he pursues the story from beginning to end.
