Cobalt – soon to be published!
Katerina Lebel is the sole surviving heir of her father’s Cobalt and iron mining businesses, until her overbearing aunt moves in. Kate has a unique quirk that sets her apart from others, who consider her cursed–ever since a childhood accident involving the mysterious and deadly substance Cobalt, she has woken up each morning with a new face. Now almost fourteen and fed up with her aunt’s abuse, Kate sneaks onto an airship bound for the distant seaport.
Anthia, a hardened and boyish teenage guard, discovers Kate and takes pity on the young stowaway. Disaster soon strikes, and the girls must fight for their lives in a forest teeming with giant, mutated wildlife and murderous trees hungry for human prey.
On their journey, they join with some unlikely companions to discover Cobalt’s effects on whatever it doesn’t kill. And Kate finds secrets deep within the trees that may shape her destiny–if she can make it out of the forest alive.
Wildwood – tentative release summer 2020
The adventures of Kate and her friends continue with more danger and murderous trees and monsters and all that, which I can’t go into here, because…spoilers.
Seawood – work in progress
After a deadly illness began ravaging the village of Seawood, River’s parents sent her with the rest of the village’s children to live with foster families in an inland town until the emergency passed.
Six years later, River vows to find out what happened to the adults in Seawood, and why, once they come of age, the children from her village are sent away and never heard from again. After River’s best friend Windy is sent off, Taren, a boy from town, warns her to run before it’s too late. Should River try to find out what happened to Windy and the others, or return to Seawood in the hopes that someone from her village is still alive? What else does Taren know that he’s not telling her?
