An unhealthy addiction to sugar cubes, a deep-seated fear of water, and universal luxury—they were the simple things that made up 18-year-old Brynn's Utopian existence. Why, then, was her perfect life also plagued with unanswered questions? Like every other resident of the planet Halcyon, Brynn's home provided everything she needed, money was unheard of, and life was perfect. But unlike the rest of Seaside's residents, Brynn had questions. Why couldn't people leave the city? Why did the ocean fill everyone with terror? Who were the Workers? Not only was Brynn curious where others were compliant, but she suffered from chronic nightmares of an angelic woman torturing her for information she didn’t possess. These were more than just figments of her imagination, though; they were memories of things that never happened. When Brynn meets Jonah, a brilliant, library-dwelling boy who shares her questions and her curiosity, they formulate a plan to find answers. Somewhere, the perfect veneer of Halcyon's instant gratification hid a city that only Brynn knows about—a city she and Jonah are determined to find. But will finding the city give them answers, or simply uncover the horrific truth behind the perfection?

NEW EDITION: FULLY REVISED AND UPDATED* A primordial virus unearthed… A world ripe for infection… Welcome to the end. A new organism is found in a cavern below one of the world's largest volcanoes. The creature shows remarkable resistance to the virus it carries, and the discovery brings with it the hope of new vaccines for epidemics that have plagued humanity for thousands of years. Before further analysis can be made, the volcano begins to wake. It threatens to spew forth an ancient virus which could lead to the deadliest outbreak in the history of the world. Everything changes when scientists realize they are not dealing with a simple virus. It is learning. It is adapting. It is preparing the world for something much, much worse. From the depths of the ocean to the arctic tundra, Genesis Plague follows a group of scientists on an action-packed journey to save humanity from extinction. AUTHOR'S NOTE: I'd like to clarify the genre of Genesis Plague to ensure that you, the reader, know what to expect and that you buy something you will enjoy. This book is not your typical medical thriller. There are heavy doses of science fiction and horror, including some really weird creatures. It is EXTREMELY different than what you're used to reading in the post apocalyptic genre. *This revised edition contains many corrections to the original text, as well as some new content. This is the first book of a series. You can watch the book trailer here: http://youtu.be/impddU5G7IU

Blending mystery, romance, and urban fantasy with a dash of horror, this witty New Adult novel follows four quirky friends on a cross-country, paranormal investigation. Sadie Smith was absolutely certain of three things: (1) ghosts were indisputably real; (2) she and her three friends were some of the best (though not the most successful) ghost hunters in Oregon; (3) her teammate Jefferson Parrish was always the scariest thing in the room.

So when Sadie and her friends are offered an undisclosed sum of money from an anonymous client to find a link between four historical haunted locations, it's an easy sell. During their investigation, Sadie finds herself forgetting about Jefferson's macabre tendencies and falling for his sweetness, even if his idea of a love letter reads more like a note from a serial killer.
