Shady Woods

A fun, easy read that just might make you laugh out loud!

Shady Woods

Welcome to Shady Woods, where the paranormal hide in plain sight…

After a little mishap in the very human city of Chicago, Grace James is forced to move back to her parents’ hometown in the middle of nowhere—and right at the start of high school, too.

The very secret and very small town of Shady Woods allows werewolves, vampires, sirens, and dendrites like Grace to live some semblance of a “normal” life, and although it’s stifling to a city girl, Grace will at least learn how to control her abilities, which sort of makes her feel like a superhero.

As she grapples with accepting her new home and its sometimes vomit-inducing quirks, buildings start to burn. She thought her parents overreacted back in Chicago, but was her mishap more dangerous than she realized—and did that danger follow her to Shady? Or are there more sinister secrets to discover in the paranormal Northwoods?

The Little Wooden Box

A fun, easy read for reluctant readers, families, and lovers of the paranormal…

Just as Grace accepts Shady Woods as home, the tide in town begins to turn. Maybe pacifism is more of a compromise than the werewolves and vampires are okay with any longer. Maybe the dendrites and sirens should make some more concessions, so the others can live how they were meant to live. After all, that is the whole point of Shady.

As the debate heats up about whether everyone should lock themselves up once a month so the wolves can hunt in town, Grace becomes more aware of how dangerous it all is. Her anxiety over Riah not coming home in one piece doesn’t go over well with Christian, and the hunting in town doesn’t go over well with her parents.

When the little wooden box Ethan found holds more than they bargained for, and Grace’s parents start talking about moving back normal, she has to decide if she’s strong enough to deal with the realities of her new life. And if so, she must also be willing to fight for it.

Hands of Chaos

A fun, easy read that just might make you laugh out loud…

A Sentinel force has been created to watch the perimeter of town, to keep interlopers out. Yet when Grace leaves for an evening with a friend, they seem more determined to keep her in.

Ethan’s mom, a vampire who left many years ago, shows up out of the blue with a pack of wild vampires to show around town, as if Shady were an example of how the entire world could be.

The blood bank starts offering live feeds, and even Hollywood seems to have been touched by the strange spread of abnormal secrets, as celebrities and influencers start taking full moon vacations.

And if that weren’t enough, Christian had a premonition he won’t talk about. He’s acting really weird, but Grace doesn’t have time to salvage their relationship when everything else seems to be crumbling around her.

Will Shady Woods survive as it was always meant to be, or will it devolve at the hands of chaos?
