Or so she would believe. Peter is an almost runaway who is drawn in by Dee's wit and cynicism. But can Dee, a tough girl, be charmed by Peter's hopeless romantic ways. Will love be lost or found on California beaches and gelato booth benches? (Complete)
Summer of 1946: (I started writing this story in the summer a few years ago.) Sydney can't wait to have a summer in North Carolina acting like nothing is wrong. Her twin sister, Levy, her brothers, Michael and Davy, are all along for the ride of the Summer of 1946.
Poems: When my feelings can't be expressed over a period of time, I write a poem, in that second. In the moment. In the feeling.
My Life in Somerville: Mica was a character created from one of my multiple personalities. She's the extreme of everything I am minor. She's punk. She's attitudinal. She's opposite of me: only child, divorced parents, moves, has a car. Zander is a guy from my daydreams. Tara is the reinvention of one of my best friends. Check it. Please.
Chicks of Mass Destruction: Cassie Turner is already notorious at her school. Starting out young, she made name for herself. Now, while she's continuing her career in the social scandals around high school and bringing them to light, will her life be ruined or saved when someone turns the tables?(Being rewritten because of bad continuity. Back soon, hopefully. JR.)
Full Circle: A story that began because of a dream I had. Denise is just the average girl. She has a steady group of friends: Daniel, Chance, Tyson, Jake, Sabrina, Skye, Ashley. They spend days in the water and nights on the sand with a bonfire and a some sodas. But when a dream sends most of the group to a new building on the outskirts of town. Average gets a whole new definition.

Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder: Sophie Harris isn't the most popular girl in school, isn't the smartest, but her life has made her the most well known to everyone, except for newcomer Daniel Robinson. To Daniel, she's just a pretty girl with the best defense line the high school football team can provide. Sophie needs people to lean on she just wished her support group consisted of more than her Italian grandfather, equally-damaged older sister, and the neighboring family that consists of her ex-boyfriend.
She Died Without Her iPod: Jamie Bryant is the hopeless romantic, everyone's good friend with a dark self-esteem, but a good set of morals. One mistake lands her in the worst possible position: dead. Her family and friends are left to figure out the last moments. Something that is hard to do when Jamie leaves nothing behind. (The only thing I've written that isn't up here. It's in the process of revision.)
Shorts: Some short stories or unfinished novel ideas. "Happy" came from a phrase that I was repeating in my head for about a month before writing the story: "Have you found your happy yet?". "HouseSitting" came from an internal debate over the term house sitting.
