- Lucy Fights the Flames: A Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Survival Story, published in 2019. I’m thrilled to have a title in the Girls Survive series from Capstone!
- Dark Waters series, published in 2017. This four book series follows the adventures of fourteen-year-old India Finch, half-mermaid, half-human, as she navigates friendships, family and risky adventures on land and in the sea. The novels were written to be read in any order.
- In Fire and Ice, India is drawn into a long-standing animosity between two mer tribes. Things go from bad to worse when she realizes someone is deliberately trying to stir up mer hatred for humans, however.
- Neptune’s Trident sees India and her friends taking a mer road trip – er – sea trip! India and her friends leave for tropical waters in search of a mythical object that has the power to bring the mer tribes together – or break them apart forever.
- The Sighting reminds India that the worst thing for the mer is not the tribal infighting but discovery by humans.
- In Into the Storm, a mysterious sea witch, a hurricane and a giant squid threatens all India and her friends hold dear.
- Colorblind, published in Potluck: Creative Works by Minnesota’s Library Workers, an open access publication highlighting the (super cool) Minnesota Libraries Publishing Project
