On February 21, 2014, it was announced that I won Douglas County Libraries’ 2013 Teen NaNoWriMo contest. Douglas County Libraries will sponsor the publication of One Hundred Words, my newest novel!

I wrote One Hundred Words during NaNoWriMo in November 2013. It is nearly twice as long as Dreamweaver. One Hundred Words is now available!

Below is a summary of my upcoming book. And check out that spectacular cover!

Desolation was her first word. Would murder be her last?


Tess Winters is a collector of words. Ever since she was little, Tess has searched for meaningful words all around her. Although she is a writer, her stories never seem to come out right. More often than not, Tess spends her time staring at empty pages. Her greatest wish is to write something powerful, and one day she does just that—writing words so powerful that they bring her story to life. As Tess is sucked into her story and back in time, she finds herself in the midst of the Salem Witch Trials—one of the darkest periods in America’s history. There, in a strange world where fiction is merged with the past, she befriends Faith, a Puritan girl who just happens to be a character Tess created for her story. But trouble is brewing in Salem, and more witches are being discovered every day. As the stakes are raised and time runs short, Tess begins to realize that she can’t let her story end the way she wrote it. Her words had the power to bring her story to life. Will they be enough to save a person from death?
