Excerpt from My Novel

About Provenance: A Novel

What makes us who we are? Is it where you come from? Who your family is? How society labels you? Or is identity something you create for yourself – what you convince others to believe about you. Through a story of deception, loss, love and redemption, my novel, Provenance, questions the privileges and consequences of what society decrees you to be.

In a story spanning five decades, fictional and historical characters interact as Provenance  moves from the provincial American south, to the creative crucible of Paris between the wars and ultimately to New York during the city’s Golden Age. Through the intimate perspective of one family, Provenance is an intergenerational saga about men and women who keep secrets from everyone, especially those that they love. To escape the limitations of race, class and gender, they are willing to sacrifice the legacy of family for a destiny of their own choosing.
