The Summer of No Regrets
The day Brigitta accidentally flings herself into the lap of a guy she’s never met, her friend Natalie is convinced he’s
Trent Yves, egotistical heartthrob-in-hiding. When the boy, who calls himself Luke, is nearly eaten by a cougar, Brigitta
finds herself saving his life, being swept into his spectacular embrace and wondering if she wants Natalie’s fantasy to be true.
Luke’s Journal: A Companion to The Summer of No Regrets
17-year-old Luke Geoffrey is hiding out—or at least, that’s the plan. A tiny rural town seems the perfect escape from all the people who want little pieces of him. But when Luke is rescued from a mountain lion by a girl with green eyes, his heart turns upside down. Now his two worlds are crashing together. Should he tell Brigitta his secrets? Or will knowing them only drive her away?
The Legend of the Valentine
9-year-old Marcus integrates into a white school at the height of the civil rights movement. While Marcus’s father is in jail with Dr. Martin Luther King for his nonviolent protest activities, Marcus endures the jeers of classmates day after day.
This “novella in verse” examines the precarious dance between daughter and father through the minefield of mental illness.
