Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, I now live in the southern US with my husband, John Michael. I've loved writing ever since I was a child and enjoy creating imaginative stories with realistic characters that readers can relate to.
The Isle of Apples is a breathtaking, wonderful place. It's lush and green, full of white magic and perfectly safe. Well, except for dangerous mythological beasts, enchanted streams, and the fact that there is no sun and no time. And all Bridget has to do to solve an unsolvable, four-thousand-year-old paradox involving the boy who wants to kill her is go there and fulfill a promise she made to the Goddess.
Bridget learns that sometimes pieces of the puzzle are found in the most unexpected ways - and from the most unexpected people. In an uncharted realm governed by different rules, she witnesses trust, magic and faith overcome adversity as a painful history draws to a close.
Lured to the 'other side' of a Bronze Age ring of stones by an unearthly magic, Bridget opens her eyes to find herself in Celtic Britain. Intrigued, Celena joins her, but within moments they are running for their lives, swept into a terrifying tragedy they can't escape. Bridget's life soon turns into a nightmare version of a 'choose your own adventure' story - except the magic won't let her close the book. What secret is the otherworld trying to tell her, and why is it so important?
But all isn't lost. An enigmatic boy named Paul has lived near Lake Caerwych all his life, and he's been to the other side of the ring cairn too. He thinks he might know a way to solve the mystery. The only catch is that Bridget might have to die... again.
In the blazing heat of Sumerian summer, a beautiful, pale stranger explores the marketplace of Ur, asking peculiar questions of the merchants and speaking in a strange accent. Wearing a woolen cloak over his animal skin tunic, this "barbarian" is from elsewhere and has unusual ideas. Bridget's curiosity leads her down an alluring and dangerous path. She is afraid to find out the answers she longs for, until Relan shows her something unbelievable, wonderful, and frightening. Just as Bridget thinks she has a solution to her problems, she is faced with a disturbing choice that may cause a shift in her destiny which can't be undone.
