Title: Star Bright
Charley Oakman is used to being a guest in her own broken home. Her mom, or “Quinn”, more often than not, seems set on chasing her unattainable dream of being featured on the big screen, while her dad is the host of one of America Star Network’s most popular shows, Star Bright. While most teenagers would resent her parents’ life choices, Charley sees their neglect as a way to get whatever she wants and cruise through life without discipline. Her dad almost never communicates with her, and her mom seems to have booked a new audition every week!
Then one day, out of nowhere, Charley’s dad calls her. More specifically, about his work, and about how amazing her “pretty face” would look on-camera. Horrified by the prospect of being a part of Star Bright, she hangs up and tries not to give it another thought.
Soon, however, a great casualty knocks Charley’s life off balance, and cruising through it becomes harder than expected. Old feelings about Charley’s best friend’s boyfriend resurface, and a simple incident between the two leaves Charley paranoid that Izzy will find out.
Unsurprisingly, Charley’s dad thinks her personal life will make great TV. And he’s willing to do anything to get the ratings up.

I’ve got a YA character-driven superhero story (I really hope it’s good, but I that’s best left to other people to judge). There are a couple of deaths, though I’m not sure they’re that gory - sorry!
Blurb: Maisie was meant to be a hero. It’s the family business, after all. But unlike her father and brothers, she has no powers - a dangerous condition in a world where the criminals she’s fighting can take a drug and gain the superpowers she lacks.
With Flight, ordinary people can experience a few hours of being demigods - some of the time. Other times, it can drive them insane, turning their newly gained abilities into weapons of mass destruction.
When a drug raid goes wrong, Maisie finds herself embroiled in a deeper conspiracy surrounding Flight, with threads leading all the way back to her father’s youth. Alone and outmatched, the only person she has to turn to is the brother who made her life hell as a child, and all the while, Flight exerts its own dark draw . . .
If you read it, I hope you enjoy it - and either way I hope you find a bunch of books that appeal to you. (:
My WIP “Eternal Orchids” is kind of a weird story to describe but it’s a teen/young adult romance, almost a bit gothic but not horror, with plenty of twists and turns… it’s different to a lot of stuff out there (hopefully!)
There is no mature content. Hope you like it if you choose to take a look - I’d love to hear your thoughts/feedback

One such person is Brant. The local gay, and social outcast. Brant has been putting up with the worst that humanity has had to offer since the day he was born. Admiring Jeff from afar has only amplified his desires to claim him, but every attempt at friendship has been met with repressed anger, and rejection.
