GREAT news! My new book, The Psychic Circle~ Souls Entwined was just released today (March 7, 2015)! Please do me a big favor and check it out! (back blurb)

Sixteen-year-old Rachel?s psychic world is shaken when Billy introduces her to telepathy and astral travel, awakening her desire for more spiritual adventure. She can?t get enough. Together with a teenage shaman, a healer, a psychic and a witch, they form ?The Psychic Circle? to secretly explore the paranormal.

Romance blossoms between Rachel and Billy as they realize they have such a strong connection. Could Rachel possibly have found her soul mate? But when Rachel?s best friend becomes jealous and causes issues using black magic, it can sabotage her chance at having the true love she?s been yearning for.

Now Rachel must decide if she should fight fire with fire in order to protect and pursue this obvious soul connection. After all, all?s fair in love and war, right?  You can even read the first chapter at the Black Opal website.
