Paige West is a well-educated, financially stable business owner who mourns the death of her father and misses the closeness she had with him throughout her life. Jessivel Salter is a high school dropout who had a child out of wedlock at sixteen and is now a single mother on the brink of becoming homeless. She also misses her now-deceased father, but for very different reasons. When fate unites them, Paige is drawn to Jessivel from the start and wants to help her. But Jessivel doesn’t trust Paige or her intentions and rejects her many “helping hand” offers.
The two women eventually connect and when certain disturbing truths are unveiled, they discover they have something in common that is inconceivable and shocking. Their relationship soon becomes contentious and forces each woman to decide whether she wants to take the easy way out and part ways forevermore or face up to the adversity that fate has thrown at them.
And it all started with “the ring.”

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always been fascinated with unusual relationships between people and wanted to create a fictional one that was unusual but relatable. The two main characters in "The Ring" are from completely different cultures who find they have some interesting (and troubling) things in common. It was a challenge alternating the POV between the two protagonists in every other chapter, crafting each one so different from the other that readers could easily tell who was doing the talking, thinking, and acting without relying on any tags.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I first determined the major goals I wanted the two main characters to have and what obstacles they would encounter. This prompted me to develop two characters with completely different backgrounds. Including the mystery of "the ring" provided the opportunity to add a veiled character to the mix.
