Faith kept me plain. Science made me complicated.
Book 1 in the Grounded Trilogy
My name is Lydia Troyer. Growing up in Hemlock Hollow, my life has always been simple. Things in my community haven’t changed much in over three hundred years, since the time my Amish ancestors came to what is now the Green Republic. I milk my cow by hand, make fresh bread every morning, and hope to be courted by Jeremiah, a boy I’ve known since childhood.
When my father falls ill, the English doctor says a hospital outside the wall can heal him. Jeremiah convinces me to go on rumspringa, to experience the outside world as an Englisher in order to be closer to my father during his recovery. Others have gone before me. They claim it’s an adventure. But adventure turns to horror as an ordinary light switch thrusts me into a new world, and revelations about my personal history make me question everything I believe.
All my life I’ve worked to be simple. I can’t pretend anymore. Nothing about me is simple.

Genre: Historical Fantasy
Life for a female slave is one of hardship and unspeakable sorrow, something Luna knows only too well. But not even she could have foreseen the terror that would befall her one sultry Mississippi evening in the summer of 1807.
On her way back from a visit to see the African woman, a witch who has the herbs Luna needs to rid her of her abusive master’s child, she attracts the attention of a deadly being that lusts for blood. Forcibly removed from everything she knows by this tormented otherworldly creature, she is sure she will be dead by sunrise.
Dark Genesis is a love story set against the savage world of slavery in which a young woman who has been dehumanised by its horrors finds the courage to love, and in doing so, reclaims her humanity.

In Shanghai in the depths of the global financial crisis, Jasmine Liu and April Wang are young businesswomen on opposite sides of an international deal between the U.S. and China, which they know simply as jiāo yì, “the deal”. Their bosses — California investor Richard Gregg and Chinese property entrepreneur Wang Jun — are driven to make the deal succeed.
When complications arise and threaten to spin out of control, beautiful Jasmine and eager April draw together to try to put things right — pulling Richard, Wang Jun and their businesses along through the chaos. In a thrilling story that brings an international cast of characters vividly to life against the sights, smells and sounds of Shanghai, Hong Kong and California, the characters juggle the challenges of high-stakes investment, traditional and modern values and relationships, and their own demons.
Caught in a web of corruption and personal agendas against the background of fast-changing modern China, will they all be able to rescue jiāo yì, their careers, their families, and new relationships?
