About this title


Stately buildings—well-tended grounds—a place most people consider a safe haven. ‘The University’ transports readers to such a time-honored place. Only this year, a tranquil place it is not. It’s fall, the start of a new year at fictitious Brighton University and Provost David Bradford is doing his best to hold things together when the seemingly placid campus is thrown into a tumult that shakes the prestigious school to its core. Marjorie Starr, a stunning young chemist, has just arrived, energized and ready to begin her first faculty position. Leaving behind the privileged life she could easily have, she’s determined to make it on her own and embrace the small-town life but soon becomes entangled in campus scandals. Across campus on sorority row, Susan Arnold breezes into town about to face a senior year she never imagined. Power. Greed. New beginnings. Young lives tragically cut short. Dive into this compelling story of intertwined lives at this iconic school for one unforgettable school year

From the Author:

To the steady cadence of one academic year, this is an extraordinary story of intertwined lives at this iconic school and how it lives and breathes. A challenging nine months where you'll meet a cast of characters you might encounter on any university campus.

If you're looking for suspense, intrigue, and a bit of romance unfolding across richly drawn settings, I hope you'll dive in!


  • David Bradford: Brighton University's brilliant and masterful Provost whose unspoken goal is to be the school's next president. Self-made, he's the school's 'Number Two' man on paper but with a weak president at the helm, most of the responsibilities fall his way. This year, more trouble than any person deserves.
  • Marjorie Starr: A stunning rookie chemist from Texas with a privileged past she'd like to keep secret. She soon finds herself entangled in campus scandals.
  • Susan Arnold: A senior and this year's president of the Omega sorority. She breezes into town looking forward to a glorious senior year never expecting the tragic events she must face.
  • Nathan Brown: An enigmatic North Carolina entrepreneur, alumnus, and generous supporter whose passion is sports.
  • Walter Trammel: A handsome coal baron recently appointed to the school's Board of Trustees. A man with whom most women might easily fall in love.
  • Bea Simpson: The Omegas sorority's much-loved housemother.
  • Ray Black: The school's 'in the thick of things' attorney.
  • Ann Ramsey: A chemistry doc. student who finds herself in a pile of trouble.
  • Joe Boone: A whistle-blower who has to be stopped.
  • Payne Walker: Marjorie's elderly widowed friend who shares her love for country living and horses.
