Buxton Peak: The Early Years by Julie Spencer
In the beginning, it was all about the music… until that wasn’t enough.
Child Prodigy and devoted musician, Ian Taylor, forms a rock band with his three best friends, helping them rocket to stardom and all the spoils that come with it.
But Ian’s heart is torn between the teachings of his youth and the temptations of music and the stage. When Ian disappears for two years, Buxton Peak falls apart.
Returning to center stages brings its own challenges, and life as a rock star is not as easy as it once was. The guys have grown up, and the original dynamic of the band is lost in the distractions of substance abuse and women.
Can they pull their lives, and their music, back together? Can Ian learn forgiveness as he fights to become the man God wants him to be?
See where it all began…
Buxton Peak Book One: Who Is Ian Taylor? by Julie Spencer
Ian just wanted to be loved for who he was on the inside…
When he meets Megan, a small town college girl at church in a remote part of Michigan, he figures out pretty quickly that she knows nothing about him. So he makes the decision to hide his fame from her.
His plan backfires when Megan finds out who he really is and decides she doesn’t want to live her life in his spotlight, with all the baggage that comes with it. She just wants to live a quiet life in rural Michigan with a normal husband and family.
Can she forgive Ian for his deception (and embarrassing her on live television)? Is she willing to give up her dreams in order to follow his? Or will Ian throw away everything he’s achieved to stay in her life?

Center stage can’t last forever.
Even a rock band as talented as Buxton Peak can come crashing down.
Protecting his bride from cameras and scandals is the least of Ian’s worries. While he is blinded by love, his band is torn apart by distractions, temptations, and drug abuse.
Will Ian stand beside his mates, letting their problems become his problems? Can they pull together as a band? Or will the pressures of stardom rip them apart?

In the beginning, it was all about the music…
Even a rock band as talented as Buxton Peak can’t stay on top forever. When drugs, betrayal, and tragedy rip the band apart, the guys find themselves short one drummer.
But front man, Ian Taylor, thinks he’s found the solution…
Nathanial Jackson plays drums for a small Christian rock band, but his talent exceeds theirs. He’ll never make it out of Nashville sitting behind them.
When the remaining members of Buxton Peak show up at Nathanial’s concert, he knows exactly what they want. A knowing glance and a handshake is all it takes to get him into the recording studio.
But starting over isn’t as easy as they thought. Ian believes his passion will be enough to keep his rock band from falling apart. He didn’t count on Nathanial challenging his leadership.
Can Ian and Nathanial set aside their differences and learn to work together? Can they find a new rhythm and recreate the sound fans expect from Buxton Peak? Or will tempers, pride, and outside pressures keep them from finding their way back to center stage?
This isn’t the end for Buxton Peak; it’s only the beginning…
