Everybody reads YA Sunday

Happy everybody reads YA Sunday! 
I’m excited to share an excerpt of my soon to be released short story Moon Dance, which will be featured in the Summer Solstice Anthology, Let’s Have Fun Volume One.

Blurb: Luna has one wish for her birthday. She wants to spend it forgetting her ex and celebrating with her family. When plans fall through she and her cousin Nina decide to cruise along the PCH. Once again things go awry. Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and Luna feels every minute of it drag by before the sun gives way to the moon and she realizes her wish has been unfolding all day long.


 I shade my eyes and look into the sky. The sun has burned through the morning haze. The brightness bounces off Uncle Mike’s racy red convertible as cars zoom past us. No one seems to want to help. I can’t blame them. We probably look like two spoiled rich girls waiting for the world to make things right.

Everybody reads YA Sunday- Sister Sleuths and The Wailing Darkness

Happy Everybody reads YA Sunday. Today I'm sharing an excerpt from the second story in the Sister Sleuth series, The Wailing Darkness.

Blurb: Blurb: Samantha and Sandy are twins with very different outlooks on life. Sandy a neurotypical teen who stresses over boyfriends and wearing the right clothes. Her sister Samantha is on the spectrum which comes with it's own set of everyday challenges, on top of that, she seems to have a knack for sensing supernatural occurrences. Together they try to unravel the mystery of a death foretold  by a stalker Banshee. 

The bus pulls up to the school; a line of cars idle behind it waiting to drop off students. Jeremy and I get out of our seats and stand up like everyone else to wait in line to get off. Everyone is within earshot, but I guess he doesn’t care what anyone thinks because he says loud enough for even the back row to hear. “I guess best place to start is to figure out who is going to die.”
