Sundial is a 2012 nominee for the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) “Adventure Seekers” category and is the first book in The Light Bringer series.

It is 1988 and teenager Whitney Forbes thought her biggest problem was surviving high school and determining if there was more to handsome Reid Wallace than just his looks and popularity. She was wrong. Her problems were about to get a lot more complicated.

Whitney always knew she was special. But when she discovers she is more “special” than she ever imagined, surviving another school day outside her posh D.C. suburb takes on a whole new meaning. Caught in the middle of a CIA plot and her undeniable magnetic attraction to Reid, she will need to decide who she can trust and what it means to become the Sundial…before she risks her heart and an alarming plan goes into motion.

Will she have what it takes to not only survive but also prevail? The clock is ticking and the suspense builds as time brings the truth to light in this epic adventure about love, trust and the process of turning adversity into advantage.

Before Babe Ruth, there was Chip Doolin!

It soon becomes apparent that the fate of Chip Doolin is a blessed one – heroics and home runs are part of his destiny. The stories chronicle Chip’s subsequent adventures on and off the baseball diamond, including his courtship with “Eleanor Ferris, the blue-eyed daughter of Mr. Ferris, whom Chip had fancied ever since he knew about the bond between a man and a woman.” Chip’s follies are often amongst some of baseball’s most prominent and colorful luminaries including Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Walter Johnson, Nap Lajoie, Tris Speaker, Rube Waddell and Hughie Jennings, with cameo appearances from the likes of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, President Willam Howard Taft, and famed writer, Ring Lardner. The stories are sure to warm the nostalgic hearts of baseball fans young and old.

The Silent War is at a tipping point; even one boy can be the difference.

But to do so, he must survive.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Most girls in the Kingdom of Sevalia would be thrilled to receive an invitation to become one of the Queen’s Ladies, but for tomboy Jenna Mallory, it was her worst nightmare. While the other Ladies would only worry about making a proper match, especially with three young princes up for grabs, for Jenna the stakes would be much higher. Not only would she need to suppress her natural ‘boyish’ tendencies in order to meet her family’s expectations and impress the nobility, but as the first girl invited to court without noble blood, any failure could jeopardize the future rights of other commoners in the Kingdom. Jenna knew it would not be easy. She would need to overcome not only her lack of social status, but her mixed heritage. Jenna received the invitation because her father was a wealthy merchant, but since her mother was from the desert across the sea, Jenna had inherited both her mother’s darker coloring and two magical abilities—abilities that would seem odd to Sevalian nobles that all have magic of their own.

Any hopes to lead a quiet life at court are quickly dashed after Jenna gets sucked into the world of court intrigue and becomes the subject of palace scandal when her magic is discovered. Worse, Sevalia’s old enemy to the east, though now seemingly peaceful, lays claim to a powerful mage whom Jenna discovers hiding in the eastern mountains—a mage that takes a keen interest in Jenna’s magic. While she had expected being a Lady would be challenging, Jenna learns she will need all her wits and all her magic… just to survive.
