My books

THE PAPER DREAMS CHRONICLES is a contemporary Young Adult trilogy with a light Fantasy (time-travel) twist.  It is set in my hometown of San Luis Obispo, California.

DRAWN IN (Book One)

Who says having all your dreams come true is a good thing?

Serenity Winters is taking the summer off. After her last year included crushing on the wrong guy (again), having her best friend move all the way across the country, and an unexpected loss she’s still not prepared to deal with, she deserves it. And a visit to see Maia in California seems the perfect getaway. Beaches, bonfires and boys? Yes please!

But Rennie’s dreams aren’t so easy to elude. Sketching what she can remember of them helps some, but her drawings are taking on a life of their own and the dreams they represent are starting to come true.

Enter Alex, who may or may not be perfect. (No, who is she kidding? He’s perfect. Great hair, plus he can quote Hamlet and Yoda? Come on!) But Alex has secrets of his own, namely a hidden ability to transport himself through time using a book as a portal. Could it be that both Rennie and Alex are being drawn in to the same mystery? They better find out quickly, because her dreams are getting louder. And they know her by name.


Spending the summer in California isn’t quite as glamorous as Rennie Winters had hoped. Time with her best friend, Maia, has been great, but all the fun came to a screeching halt when Rennie got her heart broken. And then there’s the part where she’s started time traveling to an unfamiliar land where the Commander and his Enforcers are trying to kill her. So there’s that.

She’s been drawn in to a world she doesn’t understand, a prophecy she may or not believe in, and a love triangle she wants zero part of. Her biggest wish is to lay low and get through the rest of the summer unscathed.

But when the Commander demands her attention in a way she can’t ignore, Rennie is left with no choice but to respond. Summoning her courage and her friends, she must quickly learn what she’s willing to risk in order to save the one thing that is most important to her… her best friend.
