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.

New Book Release – BOUGHT (YA Dystopian Thriller)

New Book Release - BOUGHT (YA Dystopian Thriller) I did it a third time! I'm so excited to release my third young adult novel, Bought. This story has a special place in my heart, and I can't wait for readers to experience it! I said this the last time I released a novel (Tainted, February 2018), but I can't help it - I'm so excited! I never thought I’d be publishing three novels in less than one year after setting aside the trilogy I was working on. But when that story started to fall flat and I realized it needed more intrigue for even me to stay interested, I set it aside and I haven’t looked back since. Maybe someday I'll go back to writing Emme and Gabe's story, but for now, I'm charging forward. Not even a year ago, I started writing Shattered after Marris Sheffield showed up as a dead girl in one of my dreams. About six and a half months of...

New Book Release – TAINTED (YA Dystopian Thriller)

New Book Release - TAINTED (YA Dystopian Thriller) I did it again! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be publishing two novels less than one year after setting aside the trilogy I was working on. But when the story started to fall flat and I realized it needed more intrigue for even me to stay interested, I set it aside and I haven’t looked back since. I went on to write SHATTERED after Marris Sheffield showed up as a dead girl in one of my dreams. After six and a half months of writing and editing, I published my first young adult novel. And last summer, not willing to write just one novel at a time, I started writing TAINTED, my second YA thriller. It’s a story of love in the midst of death and destruction in a dystopian world, and it’s perfect for YA dystopian thriller fans! Here is a short excerpt from TAINTED… *** When everyone died around me, it seemed the...
