I Haz News!

Wow - I have just been the worst blogger! It's been nearly two weeks since my last post. The sad thing is, there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of something I want to blog about...
it just never makes it to an actual post!

I blame the time of year. Graduations x 2, planning for the Teen's big exodus to Europe. All that jazz....

But, I wanted to jump on today to tell you all about a little news. Some of you may have heard this on my social media sites, but in case you didn't, here's my update.

First, on the fiction front, COLLIDE, my YA paranormal spy thriller comes out next month. Yep, I finally have another book coming out. ('bout time, right!). In case you haven't heard about Collide, here's the scoop:
The most dangerous secrets are the ones that kill.When a surprising mental breakdown draws too much attention from a secret government group call the Order, 17-year-old Dakota discovers that her so-called boring life isn’t so boring after all. Between the lies, secrets and assassins out to kill her family, Dakota discovers there’s more to paranormal activity than ghosts and cheap mind tricks. Now she must uncover the truth before a new breed of terrorism takes everything away – including her life. 
Exciting right? I am super excited to release this to all of you at the end of June!

After that, I have two more stories planned for this year at some point (with luck and a very productive summer!)

On the Non-Fiction front, I am in the middle of completing the research for my upcoming book for parents about social anxiety in children, tentatively titled More Than Worry. This book focuses on the impact of anxiety, especially social anxiety, on academic performance, peer relationships and daily functioning. There is STILL TIME to contribute a question or a story. Just complete THIS FORM and I'll be in touch SOON.

If you've already completed the form earlier this year, expect emails in the next few weeks. MORE THAN WORRY comes out Spring of 2015 along with ANOTHER nonfiction book - my still untitled book of social/emotional curriculum that can be used in schools and is consistent with both Common Core standards AND the affective curriculum guidelines suggested by NAGC.

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
