  • Sketchy Summary: A bright, bubbly, secretly very aimless college girl with poor impulse control, zero problem-solving skills, and several designer suitcases worth of commitment issues – she’s changed her major seven times – accidentally gets pregnant over winter break while visiting her estranged older sister. There are two possible fathers, one of whom is way more into the idea of raising a baby with her than she’s comfortable with, and it seems like she probably - finally - has some actual choices to make.

  • Sketchy Summary: A fairy tale, kind of, but with a decades-old murder mystery, a corrupt royal family, a Soviet-inspired steampunk kingdom completely cut off from the rest of the world, and a grassroots underground revolution spearheaded by someone called the Godfather – who is willing to help Cinderella, but only for a price.

  • Short story collection – 10 loosely connected short stories

  • Genre: Young Adult | contemporary horror/comedy

  • Sketchy Summary: Ninety years ago, an inmate escaped from the local prison and allegedly committed a dozen new murders in the span of a single night. The bodies were all found the next morning, in the woods, left in strange positions in seemingly random spots; the inmate was never seen again. Now, the prison has long-since been shut down, and it's the weekend before Senior Fright Night when a group of mostly unfriendly teenagers are assigned the task of going out and leaving supplies in the woods - specifically, at each and every spot a dead body was found ninety years prior. And they all have secrets, obviously, but some are a little worse - and a little bloodier - than others.

  • Novel – standalone

  • Genre: Young Adult | contemporary fantasy/romance

  • Sketchy Summary: In a world where time travel is a heavily regulated, government sanctioned commodity - illegal for civilians, no exceptions - a teenage girl who’s never broken a real rule in her life is about to commit the ultimate crime: she's going to go back in time - just a few months, barely a real trip - to save her brother. Unfortunately, there's a reason for the time travel ban, and she discovers very quickly that it's a good one; the sheer number of alternate timelines she's created is staggering. Alarming. It doesn't help that the annoyingly good-looking physics nerd from one of those alternate timelines keeps accusing her of "tearing holes" in the fabric of the universe, which she supposes she might have to . . . fix. Eventually. If she can ever actually manage to find her way home again.
