Fourteen year-old Peter Campbell and his four classmates are stuck on a sentient starship during a class trip when the base is attacked. The quirky ship has yet to develop his full personality, yet must escape the battle - until he is knocked off-line.

The kids send the ship into hyperspace, coming out lost and with no adults left alive. Thus begins the 1,000-year Tales of the Antares Rangers.

Into The Shadows

Fans of the TV series ‘Heroes’, the film ‘Push’, and the book ‘The Hunger Games’ will enjoy Into the Shadows, a modern and paranormal thriller. 

Paivi Anderson has it all—friends, a spot on the varsity basketball team, wonderful parents, and quite possibly, her first boyfriend. It was everything a freshman in high school could ask for. Her perfect life begins to crumble when she discovers her name on a list distributed by a power-hungry presidential candidate. How could anyone think of Paivi as an Enemy of the State? Could it be because of her special powers? No one was supposed to know about them, but the mysterious messages in her tater tots say otherwise. In INTO THE SHADOWS, Paivi quickly learns who her friends are and is forced into a reality she didn’t see coming.

The second and final books of the Shadows Trilogy, DARKNESS RISING, and AFTER DAWN, are now available.

The Roses Garden and the Sea

Everyone in Illiamna knows the Tale of Benson Rose, a bedtime story beloved by adults and children alike, but few know the story behind their national hero. Would they be surprised to learn that Benson Rose did, in fact, live? Would they be surprised to know he was actually a woman? 

Raised as a fisherman's daughter in the crumbling Kingdom of Illiamna, Rose knows nothing of magic, secrets, spies, or sailing ships—she is content playing pranks on her neighbors with twin brother Benson at her side. Her idyllic lifestyle is not to last, however, and her tiny village is destroyed, thrusting upon her young shoulders responsibility for her helpless family. In order to protect her mother and sisters in unfriendly lands (fending off thieves, thugs, and an uncle who intends to sell them for gold), Rose must dress as her missing brother. In this disguise, she receives the help of Fenric, a mysterious scribe from the merchant ship Turnagain, and the charismatic Captain Kaille, a man to whom she feels drawn by fate. Little does she know that, with these interactions, she begins the journey that will sweep her into Illiamna's most clandestine intrigues and endear her to time as Benson Rose, the man who saved the kingdom in its darkest days.

This is the first in the Rose's Garden and the Sea series.

Sacred Water, an Epic trilogy

Sacred Water, book 1 of a trilogy, is an adventure saga set in a pre-industrial world where the people face extinction because their only source of iodine, the Sacred Water, is being withheld. The story opens with Daniel, the young Healer from the Forest, knocking timidly on a door in the northern palace. He had been summoned to evaluate the king’s daughter who was near death from appendicitis and blood letting.

This is a well-presented trilogy, and qualifies as an Epic. The second book is Sacred Water, book 2 (The Time Before), and the final book is Sacred Water, book 3 (The Scarlet King). All of the books are epic-length and are priced Free.

Free eBooks for Young Adults celebrates "Read an eBook Week"


It's about time for one of my favorite weeks of the year. Read an eBook Week is the one of two times each year when I have a look at a huge number of Free eBooks, and discover new authors, or new books by some authors I may have already found.
You see, in addition to being an author, I'm also a reader, and an opportunity like this week to build up my library of eBooks is too good a chance to miss. I invite all of you to join with me, and find some Free eBooks for Young Adults this week. The sale starts Sunday morning and ends Saturday night, US Pacific time (Start is Sunday, March 2, at 08:00 GMT and Finish is Sunday, March 9, at 08:00 GMT). 

And one more thing... on Smashwords, there's no worry about region, or country, or location when you get these books for free.  Unlike Amazon, or Apple, or most of the others, you 'purchase' these free Smashwords books anywhere. 
Happy Reading!
