Pelican Bluffs is a town built on secrets. Nestled away among the redwoods on the northern California coast, it is the only home Madison Lukas has ever known. Her classmates have been the same since she started kindergarten, and now that she’s a junior in high school, the wider world looms on the horizon, but it’s hard to know where to go when she has no idea where she came from. 
Then one day, a message arrives from a stranger. A man who knows her face and her past, and who starts Madison on a journey of self discovery that she never could have imagined. Along the way friends turn into enemies and lives shatter. Can Madison Lukas endure the truth and come into her own? Or will the secrets that destroyed her family, destroy her as well?

The Shattered Castles Series, in Five Words 


Dark: These aren’t terribly happy books. While I do believe in happy endings, the path to them isn’t always easy.

Dramatic: Pretty much whatever can go wrong for my characters does go wrong.

Spiritual: There are a lot of religious characters. Contrary to some reviewers on Amazon, they are not my attempt to convert readers to religion. There is, after all, a difference in depicting religion and preaching it.

Affirming: Family and family bonds are at the heart of each story. No one’s ever completely alone.

Ironic: Well, some of my characters are, at least. But anyone who knows my writing knows my sarcasm.
