Young Adult Thrillers

With my love of adventure, action, and science, it was only a matter of time before I branched out into writing thrillers/ suspense. Although I’ve got an adult romantic suspense to my credit, young adult is a new subgenre for me. Here’s to learning something new!

Thin Air

Status: SOLD to Penguin Razorbill, coming 2023.

Length: 83,000 words.


Eight hours. Sixteen competitors. A flight none of them might survive.

When high school senior Emily Walters boards a private jet to fly to Europe, she knows her chances of beating the other fifteen students to win an exclusive college scholarship are slim. With her family’s disastrous financial status, this chance is one she can’t afford to waste, even when the competition starts unexpectedly right after takeoff.

But someone is tampering with the contest–someone who knows dangerous secrets about the competitors. Someone willing to kill to win.

As loyalties shift and secrets are revealed, Emily must figure out who to trust, and who’s trying to kill, before she becomes the next victim.
