Hello, I’m Bria Daly, and this is where I toot my horn 📢 and tell you a little about my work 🙂
Our Felicity: The story of Felicity begins when Mich learns he has a daughter who is almost 14 years old from a girl who was the love of his life. Elyse and Mich met in Venice, Italy. Their playful banter, great conversations, and common likes and aspirations made them a perfect match. Mich, an architect, was a rising star, and Elyse, was a talented student studying art.
Everything was perfect, and one day Elyse left; she disappeared leaving nothing behind except only for an unfinished canvas of the only painting she did that Mich never liked.
The story goes back and forth between Venice (in the past), and present time in the U.S. You’ll hear Mich and Elyse’s side of the story. Through it all, Mich has to learn to be a dad to a teenager and deal with accepting Elyse back into his life for their daughter. It’s hard to hate someone you still love, and even harder to forgive the person who stole 14 years of your daughter’s life.A story of discovery, forgiveness, love, and becoming a family told in the present and in the past by the two people whose lives are all about Felicity. 338 pages.

The Story of the Spoons: There’s a place where hundreds of spoons hang from two large trees. Each spoon is tied to a branch by a colorful ribbon.

Each spoon on The Spoon Tree was put there for a reason. And each one has its very own story.

Twenty Questions: For ten years they ran, hid, and cleaned light bulbs and switches to leave no trace of ever having lived wherever their running took them. For ten years Mary dragged her daughter with her, and Sam never asked why. When she did, her first question wasn’t “Why?” but instead: “Did you kill anyone?”
Mary realizes that the wall she built to protect her daughter is also standing tall and thick between them.
When Sam was little they played a lot of games on their long road trips; a favorite was ‘20 Questions’. The childhood game becomes a tool to bring mother and daughter closer as the mystery behind Mary’s seemingly erratic behavior unravels and the wall Mary built starts to crumble shedding a new light on the dark secrets she’s managed to hide.
20 Questions is a story that unfolds in two parallel tales. The first is of Mary and Sam. The second is of Jack, the FBI’s lead agent on the Whitney kidnapping case, as he befriends Patty Whitney, Mary’s mother-in-law, friend, and accomplice. 300 pages.
