Biome Lock

The biomes were never meant to be tampered with, and the fences were never meant to be crossed. The Biome Lock was a force of nature not to be reckoned with. 

Thirty years after a harrowing alien invasion that left the remains of humankind living captive in separate biomes, the arrival of an atypical boy prompts an awakening of hope; a dream for a new age. As a greater mission unfolds, unrest begins to circulate in the furthest parts of the biomes, creating a threat to the once all-powerful regime of the Zorb…

The God's Right Hand​

It’s the year 2026; the second civil war has ravaged the United States. Eris Andraste never cared for the war, until she discovered something within her that thrust her to the center of it all.

What was supposed to be a regular walk home for 19-year-old Eris Andraste proved to be anything but when a hooded man follows her down an alleyway and points a gun in her direction. Expecting to be dead, Eris is stunned to find that not only is she nearly completely unscathed, but the bullet - the one that was supposed to be her end - rests in the palm of her hand.

Both horrified and relieved by the events, Eris is left running with questions about her existence that will never, ever leave. And she can get these answers, if she falls into the hands of those whom she’s been told to run from.

With a sinister cast of characters and danger looming around every character, Eris doesn’t know who she can trust.

Not even herself…

The Nightmare of Ziel DeLaine

Never go to the places you aren’t supposed to be.

 

Every weekend, young Aaron Hearth plays in the expansive front yard of a mysterious property, known as the DeLaine manor, and thought to be abandoned. But he knows better than to think it’s deserted, as there is something there, in the window - a ghost. 

 

His life is turned upside down after an encounter with the spirit, but there’s something that scares him even more. A boy from his dreams now seems to be real, and by some chance, the mysterious boy may be a bigger threat than what he can handle. 

 

A secret threat is unraveling before his eyes, and Aaron knows only one thing for sure - he is being hunted down.

There are more places to never set foot in.

Newly a ghost, Aaron Hearth would be anything but - he will never be a normal boy again, and hates the thought. Against his better wishes, he has to team up with Ziel DeLaine, his murderer, and only ally. She knows about Silly Kingston, and she may be his only chance at survival.

A forbidden world of haunting magic awaits him, but it will fracture him; break him and test all of his abilities. There seems to be no other way to stop what is inevitable: being hunted down and captured by the insane conjurer, Silly Kingston.

 

Will he be set free, or will Aaron Hearth become just another servant of evil?

And if they fail to escape again, the trouble will be endless. Because Silly Kingston’s plan - the one that has been in motion for decades - is ready to unravel.

You Won't Know Her Name

There lives a little girl whose name goes unsaid because it doesn’t matter. 

 

And for all the things you can’t know, there are three things you can.

 

  1. She is about to start middle school. Three days late.

  2. She has a sister, who is not late for school.

  3. Nothing will go to plan.

 

Nothing going to plan is probably an understatement, because what The Girl is about to go through goes beyond typical. And when she is bruised and haunted by words and violence, only two things can help her.

 

Poetry, and hope for a better future. 

 

Because let’s face it - things can’t stay the same.

The Accidental Insurgent

One mistake can ruin your life. 

Ally Einfell will die in two years, at twenty years old… but not if she dies at eighteen instead. In a corrupt future, graduates of the Endmost School are forced to prove themselves as useful in two years, or else they’ll be executed on their twentieth birthday. 

 

But Ally may never get that far because she has committed a crime. It’s a stupid crime, but it’s enough for her to never graduate - enough for her to be executed, or proved useless. Both mean the same thing. And even with the support of her handsome best friend, Finch Briar, Ally will have to overcome her greatest fears to survive…

I Know Her Name

In the sixth grade, a girl’s life was turned upside down by a series of horrific bullying events.

In seventh grade, she wrote a book about it - You Won’t Know Her Name, a haunting novel told in poetry about a nameless girl who, along with her sister, undergoes the same events.

Now, she returns with a new poetry collection, featuring poems she wrote before, during, and after the creation of You Won’t Know Her Name. These poems are dark and unordered, expressing her pain and healing - everything that was, and wasn’t told in You Won’t Know Her Name.

And this time, The Girl does have a name: Shanti Hershenson.
