A Few Of My Thoughts About Nine Notches! 

You Will Become Emotionally Invested In This Novel

In his debut novel, the author takes us on a turbulent ride across the cobblestone roads in New Orleans French Quarter, a treasured tale that spans from 1835 until current day. Nine Notches is two brilliantly woven stories that eventually collide in your life, leaving you wanting more pages to turn.

With a narrative voice of a master Skald, this phenom of an author has the incredible skill set to place you on the auction block and sell you off to the highest bidder, and then cart you away in a dry rotted buggy.
