Dark Before Dawn is aimed at teens, and at adults who enjoy paranormal thrillers such as the Twilight, House of Night, and The Vampire Diaries series. I loved writing this book as it deals with all sorts of fun topics, such as psychic abilities, telepathy, mind control, and crystals. (If you were ever picked last in gym class, you'll love this book! Let's just say I released some pent-up resentment about gym teachers who let their students choose teams rather than dividing the teams up themselves.) The book is on sale for 99 cents for the Halloween season.
Dawn Christian has been psychic since she was seven years old and has always considered herself an outcast. Even her own mother discourages her talent, so Dawn has kept her abilities quiet and feared a lifetime of loneliness. When she gets involved with a fortuneteller and two teenage girls who share her mysterious perception, Dawn finally belongs to a group.
As her intuition strengthens, so does Dawn’s self esteem. However, when she learns her new friends may be tied to two bizarre murders, she has an important choice to make – continue developing the talent that makes her special, or challenge the only people who have ever accepted her. You can find the 99 cent promotion on:
I'm also releasing a new version of my backlist title Face-Off, about twin brothers fighting it out on the same high school hockey team. This is a fun book for adult hockey fans, or for kids 9-16. If you're considering it for a child, Booklist called it a great novel for either proficient or reluctant readers. This is a special book to me as I wrote it when I was 16 years old in high school study halls and it was originally published when I was 18.
Don't have an e-reader or do you know kids who would like a paper copy? If you'd like to join my mailing list and find out when the print versions of Face-Off and Dark Before Dawn are available, please visit the contact page of my web site.
