YOUNG ADULT THRILLERS
Murder. Making out. Twists.
If your tastes run Heathers, you’ll want Casual Conversations About Love and Murder on your TBR. Need a fast-paced read with slasher vibes? Go with Prom House.
YOUNG ADULT SFF
Enter Cloud Nine, a YA serial
Cloud Nine is a near-future SF story filled with so many things I love: strong female leads, dystopian vibes, and kissing in the middle of a fight (maybe?!). So basically, your Chelsea Mueller starter package.
Moving to the government’s teen-only Cloud Nine colony means ditching the protective gear and experiencing real sunlight. Ally would rather NOT, but before she can say “I didn’t even apply,” she’s shipped off to research ways to fix the environment below. But something is REALLY wrong up in the sky. More than blackened clouds. Is everyone in the station locked in? Are they in danger? Can Ally figure it out before those closest to her die?
Cloud Nine is currently being shared in a serial fashion with weekly episodes posted on Patreon and Kindle Vella. (You get to read them a day earlier and discuss with me if you’re on Patreon.) Once the story is complete, though, the novel will be available, too. Join my newsletter if you want to be alerted when the full story is out.
