For Pippa Turner there’s only one place to go when her life self-destructs on national TV—home to Ghost Falls, and her heavily perfumed, overly dramatic, but supremely loving grandmother, Philomene. If anyone will understand how Pippa’s hit makeover show was sabotaged by her vengeful ex, it’s Phi. But she’s not the only one who’s happy to see her—and Pippa can’t help but wonder if Matt Evans, her gorgeous high-school crush turned Phi’s contractor, is game for a steamy close-up…
Matt owes his whole career to Phi and her constant demands to embellish the gothically ridiculous house he built for her. Getting to see red-headed, red-hot Pippa is a bonus, especially now that she’s no longer the troublesome teenager he remembers. He’s willing to stay behind the scenes while she gives her own life a much-needed makeover, but not forever. As far as he’s concerned, their connection is too electric to ignore. And the chance to build something lasting between them—before she can high-tail it back to Hollywood—is going to the top of his to-do list…

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend, Mabel.

Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits.

Arizona, December 1943. After surviving perilous six-month journeys to 1889 and 1918, the Carsons, five siblings from the present day, seek a respite in their home state. While Adam and Greg settle down with their Progressive Era brides, Natalie and Caitlin start romances with wartime aviators and Cody befriends a Japanese family in an internment camp. The time travelers regroup, bury some ghosts, and continue their search for their missing parents. Then old problems return, new ones emerge, and a peaceful hiatus becomes a race for survival. In INDIAN PAINTBRUSH, the sequel to RIVER RISING and THE MEMORY TREE, several young adults find love and adventure as they navigate the home front during the height of World War II.
Approximately 10:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Tuesday May 26th, 2030 an amateur fifteen-year-old stargazer peering into the night sky from the comfort of his Cincinnati suburban backyard discovered what appeared to be an untracked comet. He confirmed his findings with his science teacher who called it in to make it official. However, little did the crude astronomer realize, what he discovered was actually a space mountain bigger than Mount Everest, traveling nearly two hundred times the speed of sound—and headed straight for earth. Anyone within a thousand-mile radius of the impact zone would have absolutely no chance of surviving such an event, for they would be completely incinerated. The world would be thrown into a six-month darkness. The air would be toxic, and the soil would be poisonous for anything that tries to grow. In all—the earth would bleed out.
With the advancement of modern technology, countries possess nuclear warheads that would make Hiroshima look like a hand grenades. And with this type of power, the world would have somewhat of a chance at surviving without a single scar to show. However, there is a man hidden within the shadows of the government—a bedlamite, and he will do everything it takes to make certain that space behemoth strikes the very land he and 8.5 billion others call home, thus bringing his dream of a one-man world leader to reality. This illogical madman is not only backed by a handful of military scientists, but also by some of America’s most vicious military soldiers and CIA agents—all turned mercenaries. They are hidden safely within a newly constructed super world deep in the Colorado Mountains.
This man will see to it that all mentioning of this looming danger is cut off from every country in the world—including the United States of America. And to add to this act of lunacy, all who know about this potential species killer high above the earth, including the fifteen-year-old who discovered it, are silenced—killed to keep it a secret.
Isaiah Peace is the sole discoverer of a space juggernaut that will be responsible for wiping out greater than three-quarters of all earth’s species—sending the world as we know it back into a Stone Age. Those few who are cursed to survive within this dying world will realize that ordinary people are deadlier than the hammer of God that was sent to wipe them all out.
This is a story—of an extinction event.
