Branches: A Novel

Adult
Contemporary

Sometimes it feels like life took a wrong turn. … What if it did?

This isn’t your life.
This isn’t your reality.
And there’s a way out.

The BookLife Prize calls Branches “a powerful piece of inventive and topical science fiction [that] will undoubtedly resonate with readers in a way that many stories reach for, but few achieve.”

For one man, the past few years have delivered one shock after another. The election of an authoritarian president. The sudden loss of his mother. A series of debilitating seizures. Now, as America descends into a nightmare, he’s shocked to discover the explanation for his seizures: He’s in the wrong universe.

A drug trial promises to return him to the timeline where he belongs. With his family life strained, his job gone and tanks in the streets, he jumps at the opportunity. But what will he find on the other side?

Take a journey through the multiverse and explore the roads not taken. Question the nature of fate. And find an answer to the biggest question of all: what would it take for one person to truly change things?

Fans of The Midnight Library (Matt Haig) and Dark Matter (Blake Crouch) will love this deeply personal journey through fear, grief and redemption.

First in a series. Book Two coming soon.
