On a quest for truth, one girl will find more than she bargained for.

Sixteen-year-old Rachel Brandt is excited about her six-month anniversary with her boyfriend, Brent, getting her driver’s license, and competing for a district championship in her first season on the varsity basketball team.

But when Rachel stumbles across a photograph of her parents, she can’t shake the feeling that she is meant to find her mother, whose identity is a secret her grandparents have closely guarded. All Rachel knows is that her mother disappeared around the time her father was killed in action in the Gulf War a few months after she was born.

Her discovery of the photograph sends Rachel on a search for her mother against her grandparents’ wishes and propels her life into a tailspin. She never imagines her search will reveal a series of lies that jeopardizes every important relationship in her life and ultimately lead Rachel to question her identity.

The Photograph is a contemporary young adult novel for ages 12-16 that follows Rachel’s search for her mother through the backdrop of her basketball team’s quest for its first district championship in twelve years.

The Photograph Cover Reveal

I couldn't wait any longer! I had to show you the awesome cover for The Photograph.  A special thanks to Kelly over at Indie-Spired Designs. She also writes books so check out her books here.

I absolutely love the cover! The Photograph releases June 17! More teasers and chapters will be posted in the coming weeks, but here's the pitch if you missed it.

Launch Day for the Second Saga of Zelda Pug!

IMG_0377 Zelda and I are super excited for the launch of  The Adventures of Zelda: The Second Saga. The second book of Zelda adventures centers on a big move and a search for a new friend. She has an encounter with a goose, meets Norman, steals some Thanksgiving turkey, and many  more adventures. If you like the first book, I know you will like the second!

If you are new to the series, read about the books here or read the first chapter of The Adventures of Zelda: A Pug Tale for free

Much like the first book, Zelda's Second Saga is available on all major e-book platforms and in paperback. For the first weekend, the e-book is only $2.99 so pick it up now and save a couple bucks.

If you are planning to pick up the book, I'd love for you to buy it today or this weekend and maybe the critical mass can send a curly tailed pug up the best seller charts!

Finally, if you read the first Zelda book or the second, the best way to support me is to spread the word. Please leave an honest review at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, or Goodreads. Or simply recommend the book to a fellow parent or pug lover. Thanks Friends!

"The Adventures Of Zelda is a wonderful, imaginative chapter book that captures your heart the first moment you meet Zelda.”

"My nine year old niece is a huge animal lover. She is having fun with this book, wondering about what happens next, curious about the other dogs in the stories, and now looking at her own dogs a little differently.”

"I’ve always wondered what dogs were thinking and this book captured it in a funny and touching way. Filled with lovable characters, this book invites you in and leaves you wanting more from Zelda! I can’t wait to share the stories with the kids in my life."
