I"m the author of The Mystery Book Collection and three series for teens: The Gatekeeper's Saga and The Vampires of Athens are both based on Greek mythology. The Purgatorium Series is a contemporary teen thriller. I also teach writing and literature at a university in San Antonio, where I live with my husband and three teens.
The Purgatorium Thriller A suicidal teen is sent to an island to an experimental facility called the Purgatorium where the doctors orchestrate a series of frightening, cathartic experiences that are ultimately successful but cross ethical lines. (Published trilogy in need of adaptation.)
The Gatekeeper's Sons Fantasy While in a coma, a teenage girl unwittingly attracts the attention of Thanatos, who then makes a deal with his father (Hades) to visit the upperworld along with his sisters, the Furies, to help her avenge her parents' deaths, which culminates in a head to head battle between the girl and the killer before an audience on Mount Olympus.
