Book 5 Coming Summer 2023

Yes, Book 5 is coming this summer, but I don’t have a release date just yet. This last book requires a lot more research than the other 4 and is taking a bit longer to complete. Thank you for your patience! It’s coming!

Book 1

More of Us to the West

On a trip to reignite the spark in her marriage, Alaina Grace’s upgraded first-class ticket places her far from her husband and next to the notorious Jack Volmer, a former teen actor who’d previously hung on posters in her childhood bedroom. When an unusual storm forces their plane out of the sky, her ticket will save her life and require her to question everything.

Ripped from the comforts of her world and injured, Alaina finds herself on an island in the middle of the Pacific, completely separated from her husband among eleven strangers. Seeking comfort in the presence of the single familiar face, Alaina must choose between her past and her present; between two loves in two contrasting worlds. 

As they navigate life on the island, they uncover mystery around the storm they encountered and begin to question whether it was indeed a storm at all.  In this new foreign place, as they search for signs of rescue, these strangers will find adventure, hidden secrets, and in each other: family.
