Yippee!!! I am SO excited!

Today is the official launch of my latest young adult novel, Storm ! I am overwhelmingly grateful to see this book in print – it has been a dream of mine for a very long time. Out of all the stories I have written, Storm is my favorite, and now I get to share it with you! 


Storm is a contemporary, mystery-drama about a creative and complex sixteen-year-old boy named Storm. This book is full of lots of juicy drama and fun, colorful characters but it’s ultimately about relationships, connections and overcoming obstacles. The story has a beautiful message – one that I believe both teens and adults will relate to. Here is the official synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Storm enjoys skateboarding, fixing broken electronics, and building things with his hands. They distract him from the tormented thoughts surrounding the circumstances of his mother’s death. But his problems can’t be avoided forever…
Since his mother’s death, tensions are high at home, the girl of Storm’s dreams is dating someone else, and an argument with his father lands him in the school counselors’ office.
Will Storm overcome his fears, let go of the feelings that have been haunting him, and reveal his long-held secrets? Can his dad ever forgive him? Will the girl of his dreams ever see him as more than a friend?
A true-to-life young adult novel teeming with mystery, romance and intrigue.

Because this book deals with many issues that teen’s today face, I am donating a portion of the proceeds from sales to youth organizations – something that is very important to me. Some of the organizations that I will be supporting are: Born This Way Foundation, Students Against Destructive Decisions, Hey U.G.L.Y, To Write Love On Her Arms, Love Is Louder, Do Something and Half Of Us.

What I hope readers will gain from this story is a sense that they are not alone and that there is hope for the future. That you can make mistakes and overcome. To keep moving forward. To have compassion for yourself and others. To know that it’s okay to reach out and ask for help. To realize that nobody is perfect; we all have secrets, wounds and scars. Embrace who you are, quirks and all, and be proud!

Storm is now available online in paperback format through, or you can buy autographed copies directly from me at:
