Title: The Price of Secrets
Author: Jacquie May Miller
Genre: Women’s Fiction
When Jamie Crandall left Seattle for college twenty-five years ago, she was pregnant. Her mother demanded that she abort the child or get the hell out of Seattle and never come back. Jamie chose the latter, using her scholarship to UC Berkeley to disappear with the son she refused to abort. But now, everything has changed. Her mother has died, and Jamie is coming home to face the father of her son. Reuniting her son and his father will come at a high price though...Jamie has one more secret left to reveal.
If I had known I was going to die today, I would have chosen my underwear more carefully. Had my mother been around to help me dress this morning, she would have gladly offered her sage advice, something about looking my best in case I were in an accident. I might end up in a hospital or, God forbid, on the coroner’s table, so I should always be prepared. But Mom wasn’t here, so instead of the creamy silk camisole that once caressed my younger, smoother skin, I’d pulled my faded jeans and my old Cal Berkeley hooded sweatshirt over my well-worn undergarments and was now about to suffer the consequences of my mother’s, apparently correct, advice. Could she have been right about something? I had to give her this one…because I knew in my heart of hearts that this was it. Today was the day I was going to die.

Jacquie May Miller published her first article at age eleven in her neighborhood newspaper, the Nosy Neighborhood News. Many years passed before she was chosen as the featured writer in a literary journal produced at Washington State University where her short story, Bernie's Choice, was chosen over many qualified submissions and published in 2013. It was recently re-published on her blog. Jacquie's first novel, THE PRICE OF SECRETS, is a work of women's fiction which explores the tenuous thread connecting family and a love left behind so many years ago. Secrets of the past will either break or strengthen that slim thread, but not without a price. In addition to writing THE PRICE OF SECRETS, Jacquie has created May Daze, a blog exploring the value of friendship, family and life's little surprises. You will find her at www.jmaydaze.com where she has attracted a loyal following. Jacquie lives in Washington close to her only child, Brittney, who is the light of her life.
