The Watching Game

Sisters Raven and River Carter have scant memory of life before the compound, a subterranean facility housing the last of Earth's inhabitants. Bound by a desire to preserve the family legacy, they are called upon to oversee the compound's medical clinic—even if it means that River, a recognized Gifted, must endure tireless discrimination at the hands of the compound's trigger-happy guards, and Cliff Connors, the Authority's power-hungry president. 

As resources dwindle and desperation grows, they soon learn the real reason for the compound's existence. Aiding their investigation is Ash Walker, the president's elusive and widely misunderstood son, who promises answers about their father's disappearance—for a price. Now, with nowhere to go but back to the surface, the sisters find themselves embroiled in a bitter feud, one that will have catastrophic consequences for humanity, and alter the landscape of their family forever.

Condemned to an eternity in The Establishment's basement, these powerful spirits must remain under lock and key to safeguard the future of humanity.

And now they've been set free.

Fate Unwritten

Fate Unwritten is a story about loss, recovery, and healing, but also about the moments that define a life and why even the best-laid plans don't come with any guarantees.

The first book in the Moving Mountains series, Fate Unwritten explores the relationship between choice and consequence and how one decision can affect so many lives. Hannah Lowry never counted on a single night changing her life, until an impaired driver does just that. Now, cast adrift and still reeling from her recent loss, she must learn to let go of old dreams to make room for new opportunities—and new people.

Silver Bracelet

Gabby O’Connor’s once idyllic rural life has taken a sudden downward turn: her best friend, Trisha, has a new nephew, her swimming ambitions are dashed, and her boyfriend, Jayden, has joined the Armed Forces. The last thing Gabby needs is a new boy to make things complicated.

Vince McCarthy, however, is not what Gabby expected. Mysteriously charming and relentlessly devoted to her, she is suffocated by the immensity of his influence as he salvages the family farm and enchants everyone he meets – including Trisha. But beneath his impeccable façade lays a crippling secret, and deep emotional scars that only Gabby may be able to heal.

Silver Bracelet is a testament to the importance of friendship at an age when things aren’t always what they seem.
