Ambrosia Shore! Available NOW!




I can't tell you what an amazing feeling it is to finish this third book. Writing the Water Keepers series has been such a fun and challenging experience. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this one for sure, and I'm excited to say that it has already made the teen bestseller lists on Amazon and iTunes!

Thank you all for showing so much encouragement along the way. I don't think I could have done it without you! 

Now go check out Book 3 of The Water Keepers!!!!! 

Available for:  
Kindle  iBooks  Nook  Kobo  Smashwords


(Paperback coming soon to Amazon)

Cover Reveal & Release Date - Ambrosia Shore!

AMBROSIA SHORE IS ALMOST HERE! And to prove it... here is the cover!

I have one chapter left to write, and then I'm sending out the end to beta readers. If all goes as planned (and the beta readers don't think it's a total flop, in which case I would probably need my husband to check me into a loony bin), I should have comments back, edits done, and formatting complete within the next few weeks. I'm finding it really hard to set an exact date, so for now I'm setting a release "week" instead.

Soooo... Book 3 of The Water Keepers should be coming your way sometime between:

May 24-31, 2013

I can't tell you how excited I am to finally share this book with you!


Sadie never dreamed she would see the world of Ambrosia with her own two eyes, just like Rayne never believed he would have the chance to share it with her. Finally, they can be together without any lies, without hiding who they are, in a world that shines brighter than Sadie could ever imagine. There’s only one problem. Rayne had to break grievous laws in order to bring her there, and he is expected to pay the price. Sadie believes her father has the power to free Rayne, but he has been missing for days. Now, Sadie is alone in an unfamiliar world and desperate to help Rayne before it’s too late.

Book 3 Update - Ambrosia Shore

I know some of you are wondering when Ambrosia Shore (the third book in The Water Keepers) is coming out, so I thought I would post a quick update. Right now I can only estimate, but my goal is to be finished by the end of April or beginning of May. This is just a guess. If I get it done sooner, you will be the first to know!!

I think I might even have a cover to reveal to you soon (I have a few designs all ready to go, but for some reason I just can't make up my mind).

I also have a new year's resolution to have Book 4 out before the end of the year. I definitely got behind last year when I moved out of state for my husband's job. I kind of had writers block for a few months while trying to adjust. To be honest, if I hadn't moved, most likely the third book would have been done by now. I cringe just thinking about it! But now that my life is back to mostly normal again, the writing is coming along much faster! Oh yeah! I just can't wait to get the rest if this story that I love finally down in words for you all to enjoy with me.

I might be a little "radio silent" for the next month or so, but if you don't hear from me, just know that it's because I am WRITING!
