Great way to kick off the holidays! Hope to see you there.

June 8, 2022: I’m thrilled to announce the upcoming release (July 14, 2022) of my debut young adult novel, The Shadows We Make. I hope to be able to set up some book-signing events. If so, they will be posted here so keep a look out.

Thanks for checking in!


Grace Irese, sixteen-year-old desert warrior with a chip on her shoulder, is gifted in ways she does not yet realize. Duncan Oaks, teenage member of the Grif-Drif con-artist guild, is a boy who has made one bad choice too many. Finding themselves remanded to an off-world juvenile facility with lifetime sentences, Grace and Duncan plot an escape into the horrific environment beyond, determined to save Duncan’s young sister from Grace’s war-torn world.  Can they and their unlikely companions survive their quest unscathed, or will they find they’ve been forever altered?

Set in dark alien worlds and told in the first person with three separate voices, The Shadows We Make is a fast-paced tale filled with conflict, bravery, a touch of strange magic and characters bound by unexpected friendship.

“…intricate worldbuilding … complex characters … beautifully crafted … will appeal to readers of all ages.” – Reviewer – BookLife
