Another Life is a novel in progress centered around a small town Evangelical church. Paul Frazier returns to his hometown from school in New York City, his dreams of being a rock star crushed. He takes up a job running sound at a local church and begins an affair with a April Swanson, his former high school math teacher who runs the church's vacation bible school. The book also follows Laura, April's daughter, as she conducts a covert online relationship with a strange man, and Ben, a young boy dealing with the presence of Deshawn, his foster brother from Brooklyn.
