LOVE FORTUNES AND OTHER DISASTERS (formerly known as We Could Fall in Love) will hit stores on May 12th, 2015.

In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, one girl chooses to change her fortune and her fate by falling in love.

Love is real in the town of Grimbaud and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.

Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.

Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?

Here's a playlist I made, using the songs I listened to while writing the manuscript: I tried to put them in narrative order!

POCKET FOREST (Deathless Press, August 2013)

Since childhood, Harriet has dreamed of exploring forests with Stig Hemming, the boy lost to her in the frayed bonds of an old family friendship. Years later, in the wake of losing her mother, Harriet finally meets Stig only to discover a frightened young man clawing to regain a life no longer his. 

 The darker parts of the forest beckon, where ghost-dogs patrol a crumbling boarding school and treasure, once lost, must be snatched back with bravery. This  contemporary original fairy tale, complete with all the attendant comforts and threats, will pull you into the woodlands of the heart. 

 Each chapbook is roughly 4.25" x 5.5", handmade in a limited edition of 30. Stapled with handmade endpapers. [Print Edition is Sold Out!]

I made a playlist of the songs I listened to while writing POCKET FOREST - and I put them in order of the narrative, more or less. You could try reading the book while having this playlist rolling in the background, or just enjoy it as is.
