Worthy

Coming-of-Age, Murder Mystery Fiction

Seventeen-year-old Worthy lives in a house full of secrets. She dreams of getting away from her family and out of Hogan’s Creek. But in the summer of 1945, a murder changes everything. Suddenly, her life becomes consumed with a reckless yet exciting pursuit of truth and justice. She’ll nearly lose her life, but along the way, she finds love, hope, and the truth in unlikely places.

 Based loosely on the murder of a Melungeon horse trader in North Carolina, WORTHY reveals the history of a tri-racial people who migrated from North Carolina’s Outer Banks during the 1600s when pirates and explorers frequented the Atlantic sea lanes.

Maggie Harper, Narrator, on WORTHY

My mother raised me to believe that I was worthy. That my life meant something and I ought to make something of it. That it was okay to stand out and go against the grain if it meant doing what I knew was right. I believe she raised Worthy the same way.

From the moment I was born, she poured her very soul into me and I saw her do the same with this story.

Worthy grew alongside me from infancy to publication. Watching her leave the nest and getting to be her voice for the Audible version felt like loving a sister I never had. And I do love Worthy.

It’s a classic story, age-old yet never-before-heard. It’s nostalgic, hair-raising, and lively. Worthy has a contagious daring and virtue that inspire her readers to seek something higher. In that way, she’s a lot like my mom. You might never get to meet her, but you can invite the story that’s a part of her soul into your home. And that’s the next best thing.
