About the novel:
As the world ended, humans built thirteen pods to fill with hand-chosen survivors and dispersed them deep underground, out to space, and deep under the ocean. A thousand years after the Doom, the time has finally come for the last human survivors to return from their remote colonies and recolonize Earth. The Thirteenth Continuum, buried in one of the deepest ocean trenches on earth, has survived the exile—but they’ve fallen into a dark age under the rule of the tyrannical Synod, which has wiped clean all traces of life Before Doom from the human records.
When Myra Jackson learns that their colony has only eight months of oxygen left, she begins searching for a legend about which she’s heard whispering: a Beacon—an ancient and forbidden device from Before Doom that’s supposed to lead them back to the Surface. Her discovery will lead her to a soldier from another Continuum. Linked together by the Beacons and able to communicate, Myra finds herself falling in love with this mysterious stranger and must ultimately make a choice that will impact the future of mankind.
The novel is geared to young adult audiences, but crosses over to mainstream storytelling as well. It is filled with thrilling battle sequences, ancient mysteries, compelling characters, technology so advanced it seems almost like magic, all wrapped around an epic, interstellar love triangle.

About the novel:
Have you ever suspected that someone you love is a workaholic?
Sydney Stone has given up a lot for her career: her nights, her weekends, her friends, her family, her sex life, her best reproductive years, her everything.
So when she walks into a meeting at the elite Chicago ad agency where she works and discovers that it’s an intervention, she agrees to spend thirty days at a high-end addiction treatment center in Malibu in order to save her job. After all, she didn’t slog her way up the corporate ladder to lose it all over a few Happy Hour drinks. Plus she really could use a vacation, especially given that she hasn’t taken one in… well… ever.
However, what she thinks is going to be like a vacation at Club Med turns out to be more than she bargained for. First she gets off on the wrong foot with Dr. Barnes, the director of the treatment center, when an orderly confiscates her BlackBerry. Then she quickly makes enemies with Darla, the resident tough girl. Throw an unrequited crush on her sexy counselor into the mix, and it’s an instant recipe for disaster.
Can Sydney survive thirty days at the Serenity Recovery Center? And will her dream job be waiting for her after she graduates?
Set inside the colorful and clandestine world of celebrity rehab, ALL WORKED UP explores the themes of friendship, family, fame, love, the work-life balance, and the long road to recovery.
