Dara Roux, abandoned when she was seven years old by her mother.
Exceptionally gifted in foreign languages. Orphan.
Accepted to Yale University.

Mackenzie Yarborough, no record of her parents or where she was born. Exceptionally gifted in math and problem-solving. Orphan.
Accepted to MIT.

Jennifer Torres, both parents killed in an accident when she was sixteen.
Exceptionally gifted in music and art. Orphan.
Accepted to Juilliard.

The three amazing FIGs-Females of Intellectual Genius-as they are known, have graduated from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women after returning from their action-packed trip to New York City.

In book 3 of The FIG Mysteries, Mackenzie-due to her exceptional genius at problem solving-is personally chosen to work on a top-secret project. The goal: immortality. The exotic location-a remote village in China-is uncannily close to the archaeological site where Dara is working.

Is this just a coincidence?

After her arrival, Mackenzie must not only get to the bottom of an impossible mystery, but must also face the razor-sharp claws of an ancient, blood-thirsty dragon. Her closest friends-the FIGs and Carolina-must rely on their unique genius and remarkable talents as they race to save Mackenzie as she tries to discover the heart-stopping truth about her birth parents

The Cadence of Gypsies [1]

Three gifted but mischievous teens set out on a journey to discover the connection between the Voynich Manuscript, one of the most mysterious documents in the world and their mentor.

[First published 15 November 2018; this edition 2 April 2015, 272 pages]

The Wish Rider [2]

Seventeen-year-old Dara Roux and her two best friends, Mackenzie Yarborough and Jennifer Torres, the three collectively referred to as the F.I.G.'s (Females of Intellectual Genius) because each has an intelligence quotient in the genius range, have just returned from Frascati, Italy. It was there that their much loved teacher and mentor, Carolina Lovel, discovered that her birth parents were gypsies, and that she had a connection to the Voynich Manuscript, the most mysterious document in the world. Now, with graduation from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women behind them, Dara asks her friends to help her locate her birth mother when she learns that she might be living in New York City.

Relying on Dara’s gift for speaking and understanding foreign languages, the black and white images that stir musical cadences in Jennifer’s mind, and Mackenzie’s mathematical calculations that normally provide numerical solutions and answers to life’s most difficult questions, the determined young women tirelessly go from one address to another in search of Dara’s mother. Their determination turns to desperation, however, as they encounter a dark hidden society more dangerous and terrifying than they could have imagined. It is there that Dara hopes to find out why she was abandoned in a candy store all those years ago.

[Published 5 May 2016, 142 pages]
