Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life.

Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose.

Further complicating her life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.

Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

About the Author:

I started my obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. I would read any fiction book I could get my hands on. I knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding me from TV or music, my mom would take away my books as punishment (The Horror!). My love of all things paranormal was inspired by my good friend Laurie, who convinced me that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, I gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.

I grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with my degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as I do for several years. I will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but I couldn’t take the cold and moved my frozen tush to Florida where I now live with my family and two cats. You will find me now with my trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

Noah lives for piloting spaceships through time, dodging killer robots and saving Earth’s animals from extinction. Life couldn’t be better. However, the twelve-year-old time traveler soon learns it could be a whole lot worse. His mom is abducted and taken to thirty-first century Mars; his dad becomes stranded in the Ice Age; and Noah is attacked at every turn by a foe bent on destroying a newly habitable, post-apocalyptic Earth.

Traveling through time in the family’s immense spaceship, Noah, a paraplegic from birth, must somehow care for the thousands of animals on board, while finding a way to rescue his parents. Along the way, he discovers his mother and father aren’t who he thought they were, and there is strength inside him he didn’t know he had.

About the Author:

D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn’t been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer’s Sirens. It’s not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters.

A secret and unauthorized trip through the chaos of a 1717 London marketplace takes a bizarre twist for 16 year old Tess. Unexpectedly witnessing the murder of a renowned Seer, Tess becomes the keeper of the old woman’s legendary spinner ring and its supposed power of prophecy. Returning home, Tess bears the brunt of her father’s rage when he is informed of her disobedient excursion. An ensuing altercation with her father leads Tess to the discovery of a family secret that stuns her. Even so, she never imagines that she will soon find herself forcibly betrothed to the murderer and trapped on a ship bound for the pirate-infested waters of the West Indies.

With increasing dread, she realizes a growing attraction that she has for a handsome sailor puts both their lives at risk. Moreover, she quickly discovers that her ruthless fiance covets her only for her ring and its power, and will stop at nothing to obtain it for himself. The stakes for survival become unbearably high when she is thrust into the hands of a marauding band of pirates, and she must make an agonizing and life-threatening choice for herself. A tale of pirates and treasure, love and betrayal, all bound together by a dash of ancient magic, Quintspinner has been described by readers as “a wonderfully entertaining, fast and furious ride; Lord of the Rings meets Pirates of the Caribbean”.

Part of Series: First Book in Quintspinner Trilogy; Second Book (untitled yet) available Spring 2012

About the Author:

Author of “Quintspinner”, a debut novel, which has been awarded 14 First Place and Honorable Mention Book Awards.Besides writing fiction, Dianne is an amateur playwright and has had her one act comedy “The Camping Guy” successfully produced at several venues as well as at the Swift Current Fringe Festival, where it was voted “Audience Favorite”.

Other Stuff About Me: I am hostess to a pride of cats, caretaker of many wild things in my yard, adventure seeker and traveler, creative director of a community theater group, licensed physiotherapist, and retired EMT – I’m all of the above, but my best accomplishment is that of having successfully raised 6 kids in a house with one bathroom, and no one was harmed…everyone got out alive.

“Quintspinner” is a historical fantasy set in the 1700’s, in the pirate-infested waters of the West Indies for which I did an enormous amount of research – hauled sail on a tall ship, snorkeled Caribbean shipwrecks, survived a near fatal swamping of a dinghy by a spouting Orca (killer whales up close are huge!), got dumped off a surfboard and caught in an ocean riptide – well you get the picture. Writing is tough, but research is not for sissies!

“I loved Clockwise! A great read, and I love your Casey/Cassandra. Congratulations.”
 – Wendy Orr, author of Nim’s Island

A teenage time traveler accidentally takes her secret crush back in time. Awkward.

(12+)

Boy watching with her best friend would be enough excitement for fifteen year old Casey Donovan.  She doesn’t even mind life at the bottom of the Cambridge High social ladder, if only she didn’t have this other much bigger problem. Unscheduled trips to the nineteenth century!

When Casey gets talked into going to the Fall Dance, the unthinkable happens–she accidentally takes Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time.  Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just ‘brotherly’ protectiveness? When they return to the present things go back to the way they were before: Casey at the bottom of the social totem pole and Nate perched on the very the top.
Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her little brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

A fun mix of politically incorrect South Park and Teen Lit. Sixteen-year old Lili is on the cusp of womanhood when several things go awry:

She unexpectedly crushes on a Mormon Missionary.
Her brothers think they are ninjas.
She thinks she’s a ninja.
Her mom is doing Yogalates (a combination of Yoga and Pilates)
Her dad thinks he is MacGyver.
Her dog eats poo.

As if all the above was not enough, Lili finds herself tragically entwined in a Love Triangle, just like every protagonist in the Young Adult novels she reads.

In addition to all that, and calling Crazyville, Utah her home, things can’t get much nuttier for Lili. Or can they?

NOTE: My Mormon Crush, My Dog Eats Poo is a Young Adult/ Teen Lit novella of 33,000 words (approximately 148 pages in paperback). This Young Adult title may also appeal to adults with a warped sense of humor.

WARNING: Irreverent humor, politically incorrect humor, tons of pop culture references and as the title would suggest . . . there’s loads of toilet humor. Mild profanities and mild sexual innuendos. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.
