Meet the characters of How Sweet the Sound: Jed Manon

All this month, I’m introducing various characters from my novel, How Sweet the Sound. Today I’m introducing Jed Manon, the unlikely friend of the protagonist. 

Order a copy of How Sweet the Sound today to learn more about Jed and all the characters in this lower Alabama story. Available at this link and wherever your favorite books are sold.


A rebel.

Maybe he has a cause.

Maybe he doesn’t.

Maybe his role in the story is to find one.

Unannounced and unexpected, Jed Manon arrives bigger than life in Bay Spring, Alabama, bringing with him secrets of his own.

Will he and Anniston face the dangers lurking in Jed’s life, a life markedly different from her own?

Together, what will they learn about trust?


Even, and perhaps, love?
