BLOOD PACT–YA Fantasy, complete at 67,000 words

Best friends Faylinn and Luke were born to die.

In rural Alabama, where the cruel Unseelie faerie court has become the ruling class, the annual human sacrifice is the only thing keeping the tenuous peace between humans and fey. But as they prepare for their upcoming execution, seventeen-year-olds Faylinn and Luke uncover some disturbing truths: they’re half-fey themselves, and this year, their deaths won’t be enough to satisfy those in power. The Queen is hungry for blood, and if her twisted plan succeeds, the entire human race will be brutally annihilated.

With only each other to trust, Faylinn and Luke flee the Queen’s deadly hunt and set off on a quest to seek intervention from their people–the Seelie Court. Alone and on the run, the two grow closer than they’ve ever been, but as their relationship deepens, so do the layers of deceptions. Luke knows more about the Queen’s maniacal plan than he’s letting on, and Faylinn’s been hiding a lifelong secret of her own: she sees spirits.

Luke and Faylinn were once inseparable, destined to live and die side by side. Now, with the fey courts at war and the lives of everyone they love at stake, the teens must overcome their growing mistrust and fight together for what they believe in. But as they come into their own otherworldly powers, Luke and Faylinn face an even bigger battle: what if they no longer believe the same thing?


BLACKOUT – YA horror, complete at 68,000 words

Sixteen-year-old Jackson Hart would rather put in overtime at the funeral home putting makeup on the dead than pretend to socialize with the in-crowd at school, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that her new crush is only using her as a bet. His cruel admission devastates her, but she’s not so wounded she’d seek revenge by killing him…would she?

Jackson’s memories of the car wreck are cloudy, but a few flashes of color rise above the blackness: tattered white dress. Pale blue skin. Deep black eyes. Despite her psychiatrist father’s diagnosis, and the sheriff’s firm report, there was another girl on the scene. Jackson is sure of it. And now, the apparition won’t leave her–or those in her presence–alone. Jackson’s convinced that everyone she knows is in danger, but who wants to heed the warning of a crazy girl? To make matters worse, each time she gets a step closer to solving the puzzle, her mother shoves another pill down her throat to make it all go away.

But that’s just it–it isn’t going away. The spirit needs something from Jackson, and she won’t stop hurting people until she gets it. Now, the body count is rising, evidence is piling up, and Jackson’s clear out of alibis. Even the sheriff’s son, her once biggest ally, is losing faith. In a race to prove her innocence and prevent the next brutal murder, Jackson’s last hope is to confront the vengeful spirit and decipher the ghost girl’s cryptic message.

But what if everyone is right…what if the ghost girl doesn’t exist at all?
