My Writing

TITLE: Chemicals Collide
GENRE: YA, Contemporary
STATUS: Complete – Seeking Representation

Sixteen-year-old Sara is convinced that her life is completely under control. Her grades aren’t perfect (she’s failing three classes), and her friends aren’t the best influence (she’s caught up in the gritty world of Speedway). But her grandmother always said that it’s important to keep up appearances and Sara’s façade is well in place. It’s almost as good as her mother who hides her crippling OCD.

But while her exterior is immaculate, Sara is falling apart. She spends the majority of her time cleaning the house to ensure her mother doesn’t spiral out of control. Between that, a part-time job, and her chaotic relationship with Speedway racer, Logan, Sara is beginning to believe that anxiety runs in the family.

Sara wasn’t raised to ask for help, but she needs to decide who she can trust before it all falls apart. It’s no longer just her grades on the line, but her first love, her health and most importantly, her mother.

Chemicals Collide delves into the world of obsessive-compulsive disorder. It tells the tale of a girl learning to stand on her own two feet with the help of those who want to build her up, not tear her down.

TITLE: Sector12
STATUS: Complete.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandra is ambitious and driven. She knows that one-day, if she works hard, she can build a career with one of the city’s top science organisations. But when she embarks on a six-week internship with the Xavier Corporation, all of her plans are pushed to the side when she meets Zentis, a sentient cyborg who is so lifelike he could pass for other teenage boy.

Zentis is smart and quirky, and Alex is surprised to find a mutual friendship brewing between them. But Zentis isn’t just another school friend, he is a cyborg and there are dangers involved in growing close to someone who is under the iron-fist control of his creators.

When Alex learns that Xavier is building an army of cyborgs, Zentis wants no part of it, and when the corporation threatens to shut him down, will Alex risk her career to help him escape the fate for which he was designed?


TITLE: Wrapped in Darkness
GENRE: NA, Urban Fantasy
STATUS: First Draft Complete

After being killed in a car accident, twenty-year-old Abbie awakes in the broken realm of Purgatory.


TITLE: Isla & Morax
GENRE: YA, Fantasy
STATUS: Nanowrimo 2013 – incomplete and one hot mess.

For Isla Maultravers, life has never been worse. She is being held prisoner in the King’s keep, forced to practice magic that stems from a bloodline so diluted that she can barely even perform the simplest of spells.

When an ancient brotherhood breaks her out of the King’s cellar, Isla knows that this is her only chance to be reunited with the twin sister she was separated from as a child. But the road to safety is treacherous, the King’s men are relentless, and when her rescuers fall in battle, Isla finds herself alone with Morax, an elite warrior, trained to assassinate the world’s darkest and most dangerous men.

Morax is emotionless and icy cold. Isla is a chaotic and scatterbrained mess. Perhaps the two of them could get out of this mess alive, if only they could stop bickering long enough to agree on the best path forward.

Will Morax return Isla to her sister? Or will he betray her tentative trust and lead her to an enemy, obsessed with wiping out her magical bloodline for good?

    Holy crap! You’re book, Wrapped in Darkness, sounds very similar to a project I started two months ago called, The Gray! That is so cool, because it’s a concept that you don’t see much anymore. Let me know how it goes, I would love to hear if there is a market for it or maybe run some ideas by you or vice versa. 🙂 I think you just became one of my favorite people.

    Hi, Jodie!

    I finally found a moment to track you down. I’m impressed with your new site – it looks great! – but I guess I won’t be able to view your posts in my WP Reader. Sorry I missed you there, but I’ll add your blog feed (if there is one) to my feed reader.

    Thank you so much for showing such great support for someone you don’t even know. I appreciate it.

    Take care and all the best in your writer’s journey!

    God bless,
