My Secret Memoir Project 2020-Present (Currently Writing)

Trauma is an invisible bruise, a story that falls between the cracks. Trauma is not worn on the sleeve; it’s carried in the heart, an anchor that falls at the most inexplicable times. In March 2011, at eleven years old, I had no idea what trauma meant, no idea what kind of experience I would have. That year would bring all sorts of stories, trauma I buried deep within. Though bones can mend and scars can fade, my heart still longs for the weight to be lifted. Maybe it’s time to let the story out. Maybe it’s time to heal.

Double Vision 2020-Present (Currently Editing)

Alina is a shadow on the wall compared to everyone in her small town–where Friday nights are reserved for underage drinking, organized by her best friend–but she harbors more burdens than her classmates can even imagine. It’s been five years since she and her twin sister, Alison, were abducted. The kidnapper took Alison hostage and left Alina behind, leaving her with only a dim memory of the event and double vision that impacts her daily. When Alina notices her double vision beginning to change, she realizes there is more to the story than she ever knew, even the parts she kept to herself, the pieces that seemed impossible all this time. Imagine what everyone would think if she let slip the magic portal in the woods that took Alison. Things like that don’t just happen, do they? But after meeting Warren, the new kid in town, she finds that he knows more about her untold story than even she does, and with his help, she allows herself to believe in the portal, to find Alison. Anything to find Alison.
