PODs – releases June 4, 2013 from Spencer Hill Press
Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it’s in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it’s a balm for the broken soul.
After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That’s the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating… monsters.
Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life–a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure.

I’m a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order.
I’m addicted to Reese’s peanut butter cups and eat way too many while I write. I’m actively trying to kick my addiction…I’ve been off the candy for six weeks. I’ll let you know how it goes.
I have a weird obsession with hoodies and can’t write without wearing one. And since I live in Texas it’s an odd habit to have. I hate to cook, but love to watch cooking shows. Weird, I know. But what fun would life be if we all weren’t a little quirky?
I love happy endings. There are too many sad endings in life. I’m an unabashed romantic. I love a swoon-worthy ending that will give me butterflies for days.
I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan. I now reside in a small community outside Houston, Texas with my incredibly supportive, not to mention gorgeous, husband, three amazing school-aged children, a 125-pound lap dog, and a cat that thinks knows she’s queen.
I write adult and young adult Sci/Fi, urban fantasy and paranormal romances. I’ve just submitted my first young adult contemporary romance, fingers crossed on that.
