About this title


Robert Souza, a blue-collar Portuguese boy raised by a poor widow, gave up marriage when he sat at his kitchen table and signed the application papers for the seminary. Bound to the Church, he believed himself strong enough to make the sacrifice. Now, six years later and a priest at St. Justin Martyr, Rob faces the forbidden desire of his own heart when Jessica, a victim of a brutal assault, comes to him to seek counseling. Scandal erupts when Rob’s best friend, a priest with an artistic temperament and trials of his own, tries to hide how much he secretly loves Rob and fears Jessica. Jessica and Rob are forced to make choices they don’t intend against the backdrop of a Greek chorus of gossiping priests and church politics riddled with suspicion and engaged in the battle for souls. Tongues of Angels provides a peek behind the curtain of the priesthood, offering a funny, poignant look at Catholic angst and ambiguity. Based on a true story, Tongues of Angels is a canny, warm, and surprisingly spiritual novel for the times.

From the Author:

You found me! Yes! I'm the author of "Tongues of Angels," a sexy contemporary novel about the Catholic Church and a handful of priests who can't keep it holy. It has sex, religion, politics, and a host of unfulfilled desires that we can't talk about at the dinner table.

Elsewhere: I've been curating the diaries of my late Aunt Doris, the results of which you'll see in The Doris Diaries. The first volume is "I've Got Some Lovin' to Do," (Honorable Mention/Biography at Great Northwestern Book Festival, 2013) and the second is "Reaching for the Moon" (out in Sept 2013). The actual diaries will be archived at Reed College in Portland, Ore., where Doris went to college, and proceeds from sales of The Doris Diaries will support a women's scholarship at Reed. I hope you love Doris as much as I did, and still do.

Currently: A couple more novels are on the back burner and my memoir in short story is in the queue. Read a segment from "Wedlock: A Fictional Memoir" in the "Confessions: Fact or Fiction" anthology.

Background Check: I'm an award-winning writer, editor, journalist and activist. I have 5 kids (mostly grown). I've been a writer all my life, and blogging for about 10 years. I've also been a newspaper+magazine editor+publisher and have been a freelance writer for years. Google me and you'll see.

Bad Habits: Old books are my crack. I love Jane Austen and British lit. I got my master's in early 20th century British literature, and that nerdiness hasn't stopped. I have a thing for DE Stevenson and Nevil Shute, Dorothy Whipple and Rumer Godden. I'm always haunting used book sales, looking to rediscover forgotten early 20th century women authors who still have something to say.
