Crossing the Deep
Sixteen year old Rachel Harker expects the church sponsored hiking trip in the Smoky Mountains to be short and painless. Four days later, injured and scared, Rachel prays to just make it home alive.

Asher Jenkins, fellow hiker and handsome skeptic who is only on the hike so he doesn’t have to go home and face his abusive ‘uncle’, finds Rachel in the woods and tries to get her back to Deep Creek Trail. A small hole hidden under the fall leaves causes her ankle to twist and forces Asher to leave her to get help. As night falls, he comes back, unable to find the right trail.

As hours stretch into days, an unexpected rainstorm bears down the mountain, flooding Deep Creek and cutting off their way home. Rachel puts all of her faith in God to save them. Asher thinks believing in God is a waste of time and does what he can to prove to Rachel that He doesn’t exist.

With their food gone and the temperature dropping, time is running out. Will Rachel be able to do what needs to be done to get home? And can Asher find faith when he needs it the most?

Listening to their inner voice could get them killed.

As if waiting for a kidney transplant isn't bad enough, when a donor is finally found for seventeen-year-old Ethan James, he's plunged into a world of spooks and terrorism. The kidney he receives belonged to CIA agent, Dylan Black and the mad scientist Dylan was spying on believes in Feedback – the theory that organs retain the memories of the host.

Ethan knows nothing of the plot on his life until two weeks after his release from hospital. Right in the middle of getting his life back on track he’s abducted. He still knows nothing about the plot on his life until he’s interrogated by the mad scientist who wants information retained in the dead CIA's organ. Specifically, the location of deadly bacteria bombs that Dylan was trying to stop from going off which ended up the cause of his death.

At least Ethan isn’t alone in this torture chamber. Abducted with him are sixteen-year-old Florida Bowman and fifteen-year-old Jake Inala. There’s comfort in allies, yet when Dylan’s memories begin to awaken within the three teens, they each begin to wrestle with the fact that if the inner voice they’re hearing is real then either their abductor is telling the truth or they’re crazy.

Meanwhile, three bombs are set to go off and destroy the planet. And these three teens seem to be the only ones being pestered by the dead CIA agent to stop them.

Join Ethan, Florida, and Jake on this roller coaster ride with grit.

“Reminded me of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider series with a hint of paranormal.” Reader review.

Santa Claus and Little Sister
The Journey:
 
Lupe, a petit beautiful Mexican 12-year-old girl, identified only by the alias assigned to her by the FBI, is suddenly missing from the Los Angeles placement center, leaving only her most cherished possession behind, a self-made book of poems, photography and artwork entitled “To Santa Claus and Little Sisters”.  

Lupe’s confidential file reveals that has she been struggling with suicidal thoughts and attempts for years. Little Lupe also has a contract on her life placed by her own incarcerated parents.  Her brother is an active gang member with the notorious Mexican Espinoza cartel from Tijuana that specializes in child trafficking and ransom kidnappings.

Refusing to accept the hypothesis that Lupe ran away on her own free will, risks would have to be taken by a young naive Boston-born teacher - including the recruitment of his most dangerous student, Chata.

Seventeen-year-old Chata, a bold and controlling overweight active member of the Baby Locas Division of the 18th Street Gang in South LA, struggles between two opposing worlds and purposely brings both together in the back alleys of Los Angeles one moonless night.

Both would have to question their belief system many times in order to survive when circumstances were not in their favor.

To these young catalysts, Chata and Lupe, I am forever grateful for the spark that you ignited in me, for any real survivor characteristics that I possess are due to you. 
And lastly, to all the young girls that I have had the honor to work with, who like Anonymous, unfortunately committed suicide - I want you to know that you are dearly loved and missed. 
You changed my life.
Thank you girls. 
In your honor, I have shared our story in “Santa Claus and Little Sister”

The Bird with the Broken Wing D L Richardson.jpg
When mortals make mistakes, they're forgiven. When angels make mistakes, they're forsaken.

Guardian angel Rachael finds herself trapped in Purgatory with Ben Taylor, a young soldier with a secret that's driving him insane. Desperate to see him ascend into Heaven she breaks the rules about becoming involved and keeping her identity a secret. Her decision to stay in Purgatory to help Ben seems a good plan. Except they've been stuck for ten years already and Ben is no closer to ascending. The unexpected appearance of a feisty teenager, Jet Jones, throws Rachael's wings into a tailspin. The instant attraction between Jet and Ben means the angel's work is getting ignored. And without her help, Ben's soul will be trapped and she will have failed in her mission.

But Jet's appearance also brings a chilling revelation. Maybe Ben's soul isn't the only one that needs saving.
