Several books coming out this fall

I stared at the computer screen.  My heart fluttered and my throat tightened. I was happy and anxious. Happy that I was sharing my debut novel with the world but anxious about what the world would think of it. Would they love it? Hate it? Or, worse yet, not read it at all.

Buy now on Amazon 
For me, writing has never been about making money. Sure, it would be great to make some money. I’d be lying if I said otherwise. But the real reason I write is because I have no choice. I’d die if I didn’t. It’s who I am, how I’m wired. Whether it’s middle grade or young adult or women’s fiction, I have stories that I long to share with the world.

So here’s what’s coming up this fall and in 2014 for me:

Book blurb:

Gina McKenzie is a cheerleader with a super hot boyfriend who kisses like you wouldn't believe...

She's looking forward to the prom, then graduation and senior week at the shore. The only thing she isn't looking forward to is the start of college, because it means she won't be near Mike. They are attending schools on opposite sides of the state. 

But Gina's normal teen life ends the night she is brutally raped by her math teacher and Mike's baseball coach. Coach Smith threatens to destroy Mike's promising baseball career if Gina tells anyone what happened. To protect Mike, Gina keeps quiet and eventually, unable to deal with the effects of the rape, breaks up with Mike. 

They reconnect at their 20th high school reunion where the past catches up with them and Mike learns the truth about what happened 20 years ago.

Check out some of the reviews of Gina and Mike and The Yearbook Series Pinterest board dedicated to the series. 

The Moment Keeper (coming from Carina UK in November)
As a Moment Keeper records the moments of her charge's life, she comes to see how life is an intricate tapestry of which we are threads woven together in ways we have never anticipated or imagined. The charge learns that a second can change a life forever and that it's what we do with the moments that count.

The Christmas Violin (coming from Carina UK in December)
Written like a violin concerto in three movements, this novella tells the story of three people who have one thing in common -- the cemetery. It is a beautiful story about love and loss and the enormous power of the human spirit.

The Lion Awakens (coming from Prism Book Group 2014)
Two 17-year-olds find information hidden in anonymous gifts that leads them to a parallel universe and an enemy hell-bent on taking over their world.

Ella’s Rain (coming from Prism Book Group 2014)
A young girl learns to live again when her grandma, who dies, leaves her 365 notes, one for every day of the coming year.
