Books

Ever have the feeling of not knowing what you wanted to be when you grew up? Us, too! We love creating memorable characters, but storytelling in just one genre — when there are so many possibilities out there–  just wasn’t our path.
Below is a sampling of titles, but by no means a complete list of our fiction and nonfiction. We love Romance, we’ve dabbled in Buddhism, and lost ourselves in YA and Historical.
We’re still figuring out who we want to be as writers when we grow up — not that we’ll ever grow up. But hey, that’s another story!

 

ONI THE LONELY
Mari Kato, 16, wants what everyone else her age wants: a driver’s license. Too bad a family curse, passed on by her Japanese-born Buddhist dad, who claims to be thousands of years old, transforms Mari into a flesh-eating Oni demon when she feels frustrated (like every time she gets behind the wheel). But when her geologist mom moves their vegan-lifestyle-obsessed family to Rock Creek, Mari stumbles upon the gates of Hell and a mining company plundering its depths. Add in an evil cheerleader determined to steal Mari’s first boyfriend and plunge the Earth into eternal darkness. Suddenly getting the keys to the car isn’t as important as saving the world. Totally dealable… if she can find the courage to reveal her demon self.
