The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer 500x750An innocent game of Truth or Dare spins out of control when fifteen-year-old Sarah Cole stumbles upon the dead body of a reclusive woman in her Aunt and Uncleโ€™s neighborhood. Sarah shows the discovery to her sister, Lacey, and her new friend Jackie proving to them the โ€œCat Ladyโ€ is indeed dead. While theyโ€™re at the scene, the police arrive. Frightened, the girls hide. Only to be discovered and taken into custody. The lead detective believes theyโ€™re responsible for the Cat Ladyโ€™s death, but doesnโ€™t have enough evidence to keep them in custody. He releases them, but Sarah fears the detective will attempt to pin the murder on them. The girls take it upon themselves to form their own detective squad. The Super Spies are born. They realize itโ€™s up to them to snare the Cat Lady Killer or die tryingโ€ฆ.



I'm a Young Adult Author with two new series, "The Starlight Chronicles" and "The Super Spies." The first one's a coming of age series and the second one's a mystery/thriller series. I'm also the mother of two boys who keep me hopping and they're my inspiration for everything. When I'm not shuttling my boys to school or a play date, I'm writing. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, hiking, or sometimes running. I love anything chocolate and scary movies too.
