Since moving to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, junior Shannon Colfax and her autistic twin brother Shane have had a difficult time settling into their new school. When a feud erupts between Shannon and popular football jock Brent Duray after he bullies Shane, she finds an unlikely savior—and new love—in Brent’s friend, Cody Williams. Stung by Cody's betrayal, Brent and his entourage devise a retaliation plan: if Shannon and Cody can survive the infamous Paulding Light Challenge by spending a whole night in the forest, Duray promises to leave Shane alone. Desperate for vindication, Shannon and Cody take the dare to put the jock in his place. As they hike through the Ottawa National Forest in search of the "ghostly" train engineer that supposedly haunts the woods, they wander off the path, only to discover a dead Ojibwa man—and proof of something more sinister. Shannon and Cody gather as much evidence as they can to share with Cody's father, the county sheriff. But, their snooping sets off a whirlwind of panic, and they find themselves embroiled in dangerous game of cat and mouse with the real “spirits”. With the help of Shane’s savant computer skills, they discover an intricately woven web of lies and deceit, and the three friends are kidnapped. Can the Spirits of the Northwoods help guide the teens safely home so they can finally reveal the truth?

BIOGRAPHY History buff, Francophile, and hopeless romantic-- the perfect mixture for writing romance! An avid reader, as a teen, I loved the "happily ever after" sweet romances, but I quickly plunged into the world of historical romance--my get-away-from-real-life transporter. Add in a degree in Political Studies with six years of French--twenty years later, I found a new career. 4 published works with one due in June, my focus is Historical Romance, although I'm branching out into other sub-genres. I'm all about the HEA.
I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my husband of 22 years and my four children. I spend the long winters plotting and scheming my next book, and in the mild summers, my family and I spend every waking moment we can hiking and kayaking the Northwoods. Lake Superior and its awe-inspiring beauty is my muse, my happy place. I live where I play, and it suits me perfectly.
