I'm an author of young adult and mid-grade novels. My latest YA novel, SWITCHING, has just been released - you can read a preview on my website. You can also check out my other books, too!

I'd also love to also chat with you on Facebook ...and here, of course!

I'm an avid reader, and NEVER tire of discussing books!

"1 Not-What-I-Expected-Star ☆
I must say I was disappointed that the story was written in third-person. It took away from the emotional connection to characters and plot twists.

“Howdy, pardner," he said.
"Howdy… mad scientist. I don't know any geek-speak, so that's all you're getting.”
Jody Kihara, White Witch Pond

“A note sat on the kitchen table. Shaya snatched it up and read:
Shay,
I'm taking Dev to the clinic, he's still sick. Didn't want to wake you, you were sleeping so soundly. Hope to be back early afternoon.
Love,
Mom
PS – don't forget you're grounded

Jody Kihara, White Witch Pond

“[on Halloween]
Shaya could hear the clump-clump-clump of their mother's feet on the stairs. When she appeared in the living room doorway, neither Shaya nor Dev could speak.
"Oh, gosh," Shaya finally said.
"Well? What do you think?"
Shaya's lips moved, but she couldn't find the words.
Finally Dev uttered, "Mom, you're a… cow."
"Right! So that Shaya and I could do a theme." At their blank expressions, she said. "Get it? Cowgirl… cow."
Shaya finally found her voice. "Mom, you're… huge. You're huge and black and white and you have an udder.
