Coriander Jones Saves The World

The Old Ones are out there, waiting, and trying to get back into our dimension. All that separates us from them is a barrier known as the sieve. Thirteen-year-old Coriander Jones, her best friend Sam and little sister Autumn are expecting another summer as usual at Camp Happy Haven, a rundown summer camp subsidized for “lower income children.” But after the bus ride to camp turns into a battle for their very lives, Coriander discovers she is part of a mysterious, centuries-old organization that defends our world against the return of the “Old Ones,”

A Home For Kayla

“A Home for Kayla was a very special project for me. We have always had rescues as pets, but our Kayla was probably the sweetest soul I’ve ever encountered. I hope you enjoy her story and will be inspired to visit your local animal shelter to find your own special furry friend.”
