Junior year’s looking up for sixteen-year old Mike. Her new BFF isn’t a sadistic control freak, her boyfriend adores her, and she’s learning to bike in the mountains without decapitating herself on a tree.

Well, almost.

When she meets a group of riders who welcome her into their pack, she feels like she’s finally found where she belongs. One particular rider—a boy with an amazing smile and an even more amazing ability to see what she’s truly capable of—gives her the confidence to go after what she wants: her own life with her own rules.

There’s only one problem—he’s not her boyfriend.

Just as things seem to be falling into place, her parents put on the pressure to figure out her future—one that doesn’t include riding. Mike soon realizes that having everything isn’t that great when she’s not the one choosing it. She needs to decide if she’s going to continue to be a follower or step out of the shadows and find her own trail.

The Slope Rules [1]

Fifteen-year old Cally accepted her fate as one of the guys, so when she meets Blake, a hot snowboarder who sees her for more than her aerials on the slopes, she falls fast and hard. But their romance can only last as long as vacation.

Or so she thinks.

A twist of fate—well, her Dad opening another brewery in a new town—lands her in Blake’s school, but the charismatic boy she fell for wants nothing to do with her, and worse, the Snow Bunnies, the popular clique, claim her as their newest recruit.

Cally must learn to be true to herself—all while landing a spot on the ski team and figuring out who she is without her old friends. And when she finds out what Blake is hiding, she learns the rules on the slopes apply to more than just skiing. [Published 24 February 2017, 284 pages]

The Edge Rules [3]

Sixteen-year old Brianna had everything she wanted: money to ski all over the world, underlings to do her bidding, and an endless supply of designer clothes—until it all fell apart. Being usurped from her throne as head Snow Bunny and losing Homecoming Queen were just the beginning. Her former BFF ditched her, her on-again off-again boyfriend is permanently off, and it seems Daddy has been busy with more than just the brewery business—he’s decided his next chapter will be with The Seconds, his other wife and daughter. (She labels everyone. It’s what she does.)

When she can’t talk her way out of shoplifting (don’t ask), she ends up in The Chain Gang, aka community service trash duty, where she’s forced to partner with kids she’d never dream of befriending, including a Mysterious Boy who makes her pulse go into hyperdrive. She soon realizes that this might be her chance to make a fresh start. Drop the façade that everything’s perfect and just be herself.

Mysterious Boy challenges her to try snowboarding, and suddenly skiing isn’t as important as she discovers a freedom she’s never felt before. But just as she’s getting it all figured out, her dad gives her an ultimatum: finish community service by Christmas or she can’t go on their annual ski trip. Brianna must decide between the superficial things that used to be her world and putting her friends before herself.

[Expected publication 26 October 2018, TBA pages]
