None Without Sin
Be sure your sin won’t find you out.
When a Delaware real estate mogul is murdered, newspaper journalist Brian Wilder wants the scoop on the killing, including the meaning behind the mysterious loaf of bread left with the corpse. Reverend Candice Miller, called to minister to the grieving family, quickly realizes that the killer has adopted the symbolism of sin eating, a Victorian-era religious ritual, as a calling card. Is it the work of a religious fanatic set to punish people for their missteps, or something even more sinister?
As more victims fall, Brian and Candice follow a trail of deceit and blackmail, hoping to discover the identity of the killer—and praying that their own sins won’t catch the killer’s attention.
“Loaded with twists, Bradley’s vibrant and gripping thriller will make readers eager for more.”
—August Norman, author of Sins of the Mother

Why Do I Write?
English poet Lord Byron once confessed, “If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.” Why writers write has always been one of those deep philosophical questions that results in a million unique, and sometimes disturbing answers. From a writer’s perspective, it is a question that isn’t always easy to answer. It is easier to say why we write what we do than it is to say why we write at all.
For some writers, the act of writing alone is an intimate, soul-exposing ritual, during which the writer pours every emotion, triumph, hardship, and heartbreak that they’ve ever experienced onto the page. Stephen King once described the best kind of writing as being “intimate,” and said that all writing, in the end, was about “enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well.” But, for other writers, the act can be merely a means to an end, getting from point A in a story to point B.
The world is full of writers from every possible genre. Romance. Science fiction. Mystery, Erotica. Biography. Thrillers. Humor. Social Science. Young Adult. Children. The list goes on and on. Everyone has a reason for putting words on a page. The late Terry Pratchett once said that “writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.” I’m not sure that I want to know what other things he’d tried by himself before coming to that conclusion.
Why do I write? Why do I agonize over every word, and spend hours writing and rewriting just to find the right sentence? Why do I lament over each writing session as if I had just lost a child? Why do I subject myself to the often-frustrating task of placing words and phrases together to form a cohesive story? For me, writing has become a compulsion. I’m compelled to write by a physical, mental, and emotional desire to put words on paper (or, on the computer screen). The act has become as much of a need for me as eating and breathing. And, just as the lack of nourishment and oxygen has negative consequences on me, so does an absence of writing.
For me, I have words inside that must come out. They don’t always flow out like I would prefer, but ultimately, they get there. I have ideas that I want to express, and images that I want to convey. That may explain why my first career was in radio broadcasting. It gave me an opportunity to use my words to expound on those thoughts, ideas, and images. And now that I am out of broadcasting, I’ve turned to writing to fill the void. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “You don’t write because you want to say something; you write because you have something to say.”
