Battlefield High


(Young adult sci-fi with strong romantic elements, Publishing Date Publisher TBD)

(Coming Soon!)

High school’s a bitch, and then you die…

In the year 2045, Major Cora Johnson and Captain Quentin Rose are members of an elite US Army squad in a dying world, where mysterious time-altering weapons have started a second Civil War and pushed humanity to the brink of extinction.

When a bomb goes off during their attack on a temporal weapons facility, Cora and Quentin die…and then wake up in their teenaged bodies in our present day.

As they navigate the take-no-prisoners world of high school—and grapple with their growing attraction to each other—things get even stranger when they begin receiving orders to kill. Should they obey like the good soldiers they’re supposed to be, or resist and risk destroying the future?





Spice of Love


(Romantic comedy, Published on March 1, 2015 through Amazon Digital Services LLC)

What’s a girl to do when her heart won’t follow the script?

Still reeling from the death of her husband three years ago, journalist and single mother Genevieve Costa is less than thrilled when, through a stroke of strange luck, she scores a spot on the reality dating TV show The Spice of Love. She accepts the opportunity anyway, hoping a big scoop on this season’s rich, mysterious bachelor will earn her a desperately-needed promotion and raise so she can afford a better life for her daughter. Besides, finding true love on a reality TV show is impossible…

Blaise Moreau has had it with his job as executive producer of The Spice of Love. Embroiled in a messy divorce and unable to see his beloved son, he can barely muster enough energy to promote the “true love” and “soul mate” baloney he used to believe were real. Blaise is desperate for an easy, boring season…

Too bad he let Geni Costa on the show.

As Blaise scrambles to pick up the pieces and salvage the show after Geni blows up one date after another, he feels himself irrationally drawn to her…but she’s supposed to fall in love with the bachelor, not him. And for Geni, what began as a financial opportunity turns into something more when against all reason she finds herself falling in love—but with the bachelor, or the head producer?

In the months since Val walked away from their relationship, Max has tried to move on. Yet when she asks for his help tracking down her attacker, he knows resistance is futile: he’ll do anything for Val. Even sacrifice himself to save her.
