When Izzy Jimenez is caught stealing clothes, she is sent away to a school located deep in the belly of a Nevada desert for two reasons: she swims like a fish—and she sees angels.
There, she works hard to perfect her sixth sense, hoping to go home. But when she and other students master remote viewing, additional children—good kids from normal American families—are recruited, and Izzy’s hope of leaving dwindles.
Not until Rachel Callahan arrives and becomes her best friend does Izzy’s life become bearable.
Project Dream is the stand-alone prequel to the gripping thriller Dream Wide Awake. It is a coming-of-age story of teenagers thrown into the most unusual circumstances. Each struggle to survive their time in the desert with the goal of going home, but—can any of them really go home?

Sofia has lost everything that was important to her: her mother, her boyfriend, and her best friend.

When Sofia chose to leave Rafe to live with Ar’ch in another world, Rafe’s system shut down and sent him to an early death. But Rafe didn’t die, at least not permanently.

He awakened to a completely new reality, a reality in which he was the prince to a kingdom of powerful beings. His parents, Drake and Damiana, were the rulers of the Raizyns, a group of Diasodz who were determined to take their rightful place in the world. And Rafe would be the savior who would lead them on their quest. (More on Amazon)
