New Book Release – PLATFORM 273 (YA Dystopian Thriller)

Well, I did it again! And I cannot decide which of my story world boys I love more. They're all competing for that #1 spot! ❤️ Here's a little snippet from Platform 273... With a hand on my arm and his other hand at my back, Luke yelled something over his shoulder and then hurried me across the pavement away from the thundering noise and wind from the helicopter blades. I gritted my teeth against the pain in my feet from the high heels. When I stumbled, he wrapped his arm around my waist and steadied me. By the time we got to the edge of the pad, the helicopter was lifting away. I stared up at it and watched it leave. A large pit settled deep in my stomach.

New Book Release – CHARGED (YA Dystopian Thriller)

If you love emotional dystopian drama in the strain of psychological thriller, you'll love Charged, the second book in my young adult dystopian thriller series, Bought.

There are deeply emotional scenes, adrenaline-pumping action scenes, and lots of tension amongst all the main characters. In this story, confident and capable Fira Moseley is left broken and struggling to overcome fears and setbacks.

A Look Inside the Story Idea for BOUGHT

A Look Inside the Story Idea for BOUGHT - My YA Dystopian Thriller Series (Plus an Excerpt!) When the idea for BOUGHT, my latest young adult dystopian thriller, came to me last summer, I was torn. Did I really want to write a book about abortion? My what-if was, what if the government was raising an army of unwanted children whose mothers were imprisoned for attempting abortion? In Fira Moseley’s world, mothers who attempt an abortion are charged with attempted murder and serve a life sentence in federal prison. Fira, an “unwanted child,” is a ward of the state and her mother is serving a life sentence. From birth, she has lived in a fortified city created by the government and the Network for Recovered Children (the NRC) and she’s been taught to believe certain things about society. Everyone knows abortion is a controversial topic. So, when the idea came up, I had my qualms. But when a story idea strikes and it...
