Dirty Little Angels
Set in the fictional town of Jupiter, Louisiana,
Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old
Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers
a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage,
Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family.
When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith
in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated
by Moses' lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her
brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned
bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through
church. Gradually, though, Moses' twisted religious
beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey
and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world
of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

Praise for Dirty Little Angels
Dirty Little Angels is rich with characters
who are beautifully flawed and within arm’s
reach of redemption. Troubled yet pure hearted, fourteen-year-old
Hailey ultimately reveals, to those willing to see
it, that the truth does set you free. This is a raw
and tender debut.
--Ronlyn Domingue, author of The Mercy of
Dirty Little Angels is literary, but alive
and muscular at the same time. This is a book that
deserves to be published.
