“Ash Grove [is] a realistic and engaging world, and its seclusion, fierce loyalties among friends, and compassionate adults are Hogwarts-like at times. A satisfying supernatural YA tale that effectively mixes high school, magic and mystery.” —Kirkus Reviews

In book 1 of the Ash Grove Chronicles, when ordinary high-school junior Joy Sumner visits a graveyard at midnight on a dare, she doesn’t expect to end up sharing a kiss with brooding teen model Tanner Lindsey. And she definitely doesn’t expect to make an enemy of Tanner’s seductive, sinister mentor, the ageless supermodel Melisande—who may not be entirely human—or to find that her sleepy little corner of North Carolina is buzzing with supernatural energy.

But most unexpected of all is when Joy finds that she’s pregnant. And when Tanner’s love for her puts his life in danger, will she be able to rescue him and save their future together? Get swept away by the romance and mystery of Joy and Tanner’s story in book one of the Ash Grove Chronicles!

“[J]ust the right mix of romance, adversity, and action… Even the scenery seemed magical. It was paranormal but realistically so. I can’t say enough about how much I really loved this.” –Michelle McQueen, Amazon reviewer

“Readers will find themselves cheering for the budding relationship between Joy and Tanner!” — Rose Mary Espinoza, InD’Tale magazine (
