Away From Here: A Young Adult Novel
My first Young Adult novel, and the work I'm most proud of. It's the semi-autobiographical story of Logan Santiago, a self-proclaimed "mixed up mixed kid" who's navigating the uncertainty of his future, a mentally ill mother who he has to take care of in the wake of his parent's divorce, and the intensity of his first true love with Annalise, the girl of his dreams. This will be available for pre-order on March 24th, and for purchase a month later on April 24th, exclusively on Amazon.
The New York City's Finest series
I'm a lifelong New Yorker, born and raised in Queens County, so the inspiration (there's that word again) for my latest series came from nothing short of local geography. The books in this series follow the lives, cases, and love lives of 5 different NYPD detectives, with each story taking place in a different one of the five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island. A blend of action, adventure, romance, and mystery, the NYC's Finest series will take you on a roller-coaster ride (perhaps the Cyclone in Brooklyn) of emotions. So welcome to New York! Take a walk around Central Park, catch a show, and grab a hot dog from Nathan's, and come meet the boys in blue- you'll love it here!

The Impressions Series
The inspiration for my first series came from an unusual source. I wanted to blend two worlds that seemed at first incongruent - the world of special needs education with that of a more traditional romance story. Playing on personal experience of working with special needs students for 7 years of my life, the setting of these stories was very familiar to me. Paired together, they represent two stories of improbable love, and of finding redemption in the love of others. Follow best friends Mia and Dacia as they navigate their way through the drama and excitement of their lives, hoping to find love along the way.
