New Novel Released In August - 'Conspiracy'
“Feeding the world is complicated,” says Joel Weston, a world-traveller, musician and poet—and a farmer. His wife Krissy, an agronomist, sells fertilizer and chemicals to promote efficiency in crop production.
Conspiracy explores many themes: how farmers balance production vs. what is best for the environment; how rural communities pull together; the joys and stresses of rural life. But mostly, it’s about relationships. Joel and Krissy are a young couple realizing their dreams of living on a farm involve very different goals. Grace and Walter, at the end of their farming careers, deal with issues of aging in a rural setting.
The characters are fictional, but you may recognize in them people you have met! These are themes I see around me and feel compelled to write about. I hope you will enjoy the telling.
P.S. For those of you who read Buried and have been asking about Tera, Conspiracy may give you a glimpse into her new life.
