Crimson Harper--such a young girl, just a teenager--has all but accepted her tragic fate as the Bell Maiden. Her task is to locate the Bell Gate, a conduit for summoning all the evil of Hell into our mortal world, and see it sealed until another girl is called upon. Thankfully, she is not alone in her struggles; a plan begins to take shape when she meets Melissa O'Shea.
But nothing could have prepared these two unlikely yet prophesied allies for the horrors that await them on their journey.
There's no turning back, and there's no fighting fate. With courage and loyalty, Crimson and Melissa will learn that "happily ever after" is in the eye of the beholder.
The first in a series, Crimson Soul is a young-adult supernatural horror novel of over 71,000 words.
If you ask William--brash, wannabe lady charmer, tragically British--the answer is not only "Yes," but he believes there's a qualifier: the perfect girl drinks root beer. And as the newest part-time employee of the Soda Shoppe, what better way to find her?
Try asking the girl who must live one day at a time, or the girl who is searching for her lost memories. There are the girls who have been broken since birth, but at least they can find beauty in imperfection; and then there's the girl with a secret.
But as the cliche goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Nobody's perfect for everyone, but everybody's perfect for someone.
A cast of nearly a dozen characters is about to live the most important two weeks of their lives in this slice-of-life romantic comedy.
The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer is a romantic comedy about the ups and downs of love, life, and the root beer that binds us.
She doesn't remember anything prior to waking up in that Research and Development laboratory; not how she came to be secured below such a menacing apparatus, not why the entire building is in the grips of a violent siege, not even where she could go if she manages to survive it.
That scientist called her Subject Nightingale. Is that her name?
Escaping this place—they're calling it the Lab—is just the first step.
Born amidst chaos and combat, can Nightingale come to terms with whatever those scientists did to her, while also learning how to live?
Subject Nightingale, Volume 1: Birth and Death is the first volume in a young-adult dystopian future science fiction action/drama trilogy.
The Lab has developed a frighteningly powerful new foe known only as One-Seven-Three, capable of tracking Nightingale's power usage. Once he pinpoints her location, the full force of ECHO is sure to swiftly follow. And the loss of life is sure to be catastrophic...
After fleeing the destruction left in her wake at O'Shea Memorial Park, Nightingale needs to lay low. She can't let anyone else get hurt because of what she can do--because of the Lab's relentlessness. She needs to learn how to live without the use of her powers.
But the need to protect those she cares for is too great, and soon, the opportunity to discover who she was before the Lab turned her into Subject Nightingale becomes too precious to pass up.
Subject Nightingale, Volume 2: Death and Resurrection is the second volume in a young-adult dystopian future science fiction action/drama trilogy.
It seems like all her life, people have been calling Nightingale the “Valkyrie.”
Born amidst combat—an angel of the battlefield.
But that's not who she is; she ventured into the Outlands with hopes of figuring that one out.
She needed to know where she came from—who her parents were, if she has any family. What she finds out there, however, is far bigger than herself.
With the help of her newest ally Jack, the only person to have left Bastion in centuries or longer, she discovers the truth behind the miasma that forced the world's population into the Council's ivory tower. It's a secret deeper than the Lab and E.C.H.O., it's a secret darker than One-Seven-Three; the Council has a hold on everyone who lives in Bastion, and Nightingale is the only one who can break it.
But she's growing weaker by the day. Her mind deteriorates further with each use of her powers, and the nanobots that provide her healing factor are diminishing exponentially. If she's going to pull this off, she needs allies—fighters, rebels, she needs an army. She needs to be someone others can rally behind, she needs to be a symbol.
Nightingale must become the Valkyrie.
Subject Nightingale, Volume 3: Resurrection and Revolution is the third and final volume in a young-adult dystopian future science fiction action/drama trilogy.
