I started writing when I was eight, and I try to write a little bit every day even though I'm a psychologist, too. I love to hear from readers.
I especially love to hear from kids and young adults who enjoy writing and reading. I'm also happy to answer parent-questions about the content of my books--or to hear from grown-ups who like what I write, too!
I hope my book make people think, make them talk, and more than anything, let them escape into a well-told story.
It's way too easy to get lost...
Brenden’s on his way to the beach when he makes a pit stop in a tiny desert town called Live Oak Springs Township. It’s a weird place, no question. Maybe even frightening. It doesn’t take long for Bren to realize that something in L.O.S.T. isn’t right—and it might be that witchy girl in the general store.
Jasmina Corey has a secret, and a very big problem. Bren may be the solution. Her magic tells her that Bren has a warrior’s heart, that he might be the one to help her defeat a creature so evil it threatens to destroy the witching world and all of humanity, too. Too bad he hates her on sight. Too bad she might have to kill him.
PLEASE NOTE: The L.O.S.T. trilogy was previously published under the pseudonyms Debbie Federici and Susan Vaught.
What if death is just another stop on the Path?
The day Jazz Corey died, Bren McAllister lost a piece of himself. He knows he’ll never be whole again, and this King of the Witches gig—not his style. But he’s trying. He knows that’s the only way to honor the girl he loved, the girl he still loves, the girl he’ll always love. With the help of his father and brother, not to mention Jazz’s grumpy advisors, he’s rebuilding Live Oak Springs Township, and restoring the Path to its full glory. He’s able to keep his mind on his new royal job until the moment he realizes Jazz might be alive . . . sort of. She might be waiting for him to come get her. And if he doesn’t hurry, it might be too late.
It’s simple. All he has to do is turn his back on everyone who believes in him, find a passage no one has ever seen, unlock it with a key no one understands, defeat an evil monster no one can name, cross through some gate that doesn’t exist, and die without dying.
No big deal, right?
Jasmina Corey knows death shouldn’t be like this. It’s dark and cold, and everything hurts, and Shadows keep chasing her. Shadows and big stinky things with wings. Worse than that, a know-it-all peacock is stalking her, and the stupid bird won’t shut up. Where is she, really? How is she supposed to get out?
Jazz knows she’s losing herself, and she has to get out of . . . wherever she is. And get back to . . . who was that handsome boy with brown eyes? Was she a witch before, or is that just another dream, like the fanged monster breathing down her neck while the peacock screams?
She’s smart. She can figure this out. She knows that just as sure as she knows that she’s the daughter of . . .
Jazz has to hold on to her fading mind and find Bren, because something’s coming for her. It’s huge, and it’s evil, and it wants what’s left of her soul.
Nothing to fear but fear itself? Right. Whoever said that never tried to walk out of death—or run.

King of the Witches. Queen of the Witches. Bren and Jazz are finally together, and finally safe. They should have it made, right?
Except for Bren's terrifying vision of the Shadowmaster escaping her prison, Jazz's nightmares and growing jealousy, mysterious girls with special abilities showing up at random, and old witch factions going to war with peaceful refugees...
Safety turns to desperate danger when a shapeshifting dwarf kidnaps Bren's brother, the sanctuaries erupt in riots and bloodshed, and Bren and Jazz face a crisis of trust that threatens to tear apart their relationship--and the witching world. It's obvious something dreadful has descended upon L.O.S.T., but what? Bren and Jazz must find a way to stand together, or watch everything they have built tear itself apart.
