Young Adult Travel Adventures

Maggie, Rebecca, and Lucia are teenage heroines in my YA Travel Adventures who find themselves thrust into unexpected–and unusual–challenges putting them face to face with juvies, aliens, and scaly creatures.

There is nothing easy about hiking 25km a day for weeks at a time, or living with someone from another planet, or dodging hungry alligators.

Because things can always get worse.

Check out these teenage female rebels who don’t let anything stand in their way when it comes to helping the people they love.

Camino Maggie
After getting caught breaking into her aunt’s store, Maggie’s punishment is an 800 km hike in Spain with her aunt, a youth counsellor, and three other young offenders. Who knows where bedbugs, betrayals, and blisters will lead her?

Spark Rebecca
Rebecca’s first foster parent was from another planet, her second is an eccentric meteorite hunter, and the cute guy she likes has made a decision that’s put them all in danger. Now it’s up to Rebecca to keep her Alien foster mother from being hunted and sold to the highest bidder.

Available in Kindle and Paperback at and and beyond.

Hurricane Lucia (coming soon)
When a hurricane strands Lucia in an isolated Women’s Prison, she must outwit escaping prisoners, a spiteful guard, and a resentful, wheelchair-bound grandmother, all while avoiding alligators and keeping her young brother and inmate mother safe.
