One
dead father. One lying mother. One giant secret.

12-year-old
Rocky’s father dies suddenly, and he learns the “his heart
stopped” story is bogus. Immediately after the funeral, his
mother sticks the For-Sale sign in the lawn and whisks them out of
town as if living there has become too dangerous. As his trust in his
one remaining parent unravels, Rocky is determined to crack the
secret about how his father really died.

For
Rocky, the road to the truth involves eavesdropping, snooping, and
listening to advice from his dead father who urges him on a risky
journey.

Will
Rocky have to rethink who was the father he thought he knew?
Sometimes it may be better to let a secret stay hidden.

Born
in Boston with the accent to prove it, Risa lived within ten miles of
the city for decades until a recent move to the neighboring Ocean
State.

For
many years, Risa worked in a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization
dedicated to promoting active participation in our democracy, with a
special focus on voting and elections.

Risa’s
deep dive into creative writing started with finding three pennies in
a neat stack in a completely empty apartment that belonged to her
mother. It’s a long story.

When
not writing, Risa is reading, exercising or doing therapeutic ironing
(yes, there is such a thing.)
