Ashes at Woodstock is the first book in the Ryan Darcy Journals series. A long road trip in a 1969 VW van forces four people to come together through grief. Three elderly civil rights feminists and a lost young man are forced to spread the ashes of a beloved friend and grandmother at the site Woodstock was once held. But toxic masculinity and feminism doesn't make for a good mix, and the road trip quickly becomes a nightmare.
Macy wants her husband's forgiveness and the only way to prove her loyalty is to take in Hank, her husband's elderly grandfather from Texas. But Hank, a man's man from a different era makes life difficult for the young progressive New Yorker, and the clash between liberal and conservative ideas divides the home.

Is it her social-worker, the religious flake of a roommate, the professor with a demon's name, the football player crushing on her or the teacher's assistant she can't stop thinking about? Find out in The Last Life of Emma Taylor.

Land of Tornadoes
They were supposed to be the next Kennedys, each adopted Wilson teen prepared for a specific political office, but when their father, CTO of Colossal Oil is falsely accused of stealing from the company after he publicly voices his concerns about the recent return of the dust bowl and fracking chemicals leaking into the drinking water and its correlation to the current outbreak of Frackheads (people who become psychopaths and roam the roads with one mission, to kill for fun) the family’s focus goes from the future to a revenge hacking operation. However, the eight adopted kids are getting burned out from the long hours and Lincoln and Rosa’s recent act of rebellion sets off a divide within the family that challenges the whole mission.
