He’s spent enough time at the local police station to earn him the yearbook label of Most Likely to Become a Repeat Offenderhe’s been known to nark on his classmates, and his mean-spirited pranks are too long to list. Cassie’s parents try explaining his behavior as a byproduct of being abandoned at a young age and being raised in a flawed foster care system, but she isn’t buying it. Sometimes a spade is just a spade.

MOVING FEAR (YA Paranormal)
We are a planet on the move. In the United States alone the average American moves 11.7 times in a lifetime. The length of an average move approximates the distance from New York City to Des Moines and involves 6,900 pounds of possessions. It is one of those times when we are most vulnerable, and in people’s lives moving is the third most stressful event, behind only death and divorce.

It’s why it chooses them. It’s why it has remained unnoticed for so long.

To hear other people tell it (including his own family), Knox Gidden is nothing but a sixteen year old, stuck-up, military-brat...emphasis on brat. The constant moving from state to state and school to school had left him withdrawn, bitter, with a tendency to act out following each of his father’s transfers. But that was before, and despite what people may saysometimes we do get what we wish for. It appears his family is finally settling down, but not before losing his mother to cancer and a prank-gone-wrong has tragically sentenced his younger brother to a wheelchair. Now Knox must do his best to make amends for past behavior and earn back his families trust.

The move to Ox Bow was intended to be a fresh start, but unbeknownst to the Gidden’s something else has moved in with them. The appearance of a mysterious black box in Knox’s room marks the first of ominous events that have repeated for centuries. Inside awaits an ancient evil, a demon that has chosen one of the Gidden’s as its next vessel to do its bidding. It falls to Knox to figure out who that is and find a way to defeat the entity without killing its human host. Along the way Knox meets the socially inept boy from next door desperate to make a friend, and the girl-guardian who’s reluctant to let that happen. But time is running out for the three of them as the malevolent force draws closer to obtaining the two things it hungers for most, mortal fearand fresh souls.

APPOLO'S GHOST (YA Paranormal/Sci-Fi)

Tanner Truman just wants to be an astronaut like his late grandfather, Captain Jake Gunnar. Little does he know his passion will land him in the middle of a NASA conspiracy and otherworldly danger. Unfortunately, not everyone is as enthusiastic about his goal. His classmates find his obsession with space irritating and his mother’s deep dislike for NASA is a constant source of friction in their home. Not that Tanner can blame her. NASA killed her father.

But Tanner has the support of his great-aunt Tildy who is an ex-NASA employee herself. But she’s now living in a retirement home and suffering from symptoms of dementia. Worse yet, she now believes she is having conversations with her dead brother, Tanner’s beloved grandfather. Tanner is determined not to let this affect their relationship. When he also sees a ghostly apparition in her room, he realizes there’s something more going on. As surreal as it seems, Tildy might actually be talking to the ghost of his grandfather. But when Tanner suggests this theory to another retired astronaut, a long-kept government secret deepens the intrigue.

Astronaut Jake Gunnar didn’t perish in a training exercise. He died while on a secret mission to the moon.

Tanner and his friends come face to face with the specter, but it’s much worse than anyone imagined. Now they’re trying to stay one step ahead of the government while dodging a mysterious assassin. Evidently the fate of the entire planet has just landed in their laps.
