New Order Series

Book One of the New Order


Eight years ago, SILVIA WOOD's father died in an industrial accident. After suffering through years of Psychotherapy Services and Mandated Medications dealing with her loss, she longs to work in Botanical Sciences. When the Occupation Exam determines she must work in Mortuary Sciences instead, she wonders if the New Order assigned her to the morgue to push her over the edge.


To appease her disappointed mother, Silvia enters the Race for Citizen Glory, in hopes to stand out in the crowd of Equals. Once she begins training with "golden boy" LIAM HARMAN, she discovers he also lost his father in the same accident that ruined her childhood. Then Silvia meets and falls for Liam's older cousin, whose paranoid intensity makes her question what really happened to her dad. As the race nears, Silvia realizes that she's not only running for glory, she’s also running for her life.

Book Two of the New Order

Stranded alone outside the fenced city limits, SILVIA WOOD must choose between survival or surrender.


After secrets have been revealed that alter everything she believed to be true, Silvia must find her way across miles of green wilderness and deserted highway to convince someone from her past to help her change the future. Food and water are scarce, strangers are scary, and it becomes so easy to get lost along the way. 


Determined to save both herself and the loved ones she left behind, Silvia is still running for her life.

This Young Adult/New Adult Crossover Dystopian is a cross between The GiverThe Handmaid's Tale, and Agenda 21.

  1. I just finished your novel, Dead Girl Running, and I want more! Are there plans to continue the story? Sylvia And Franco must reunite!

    1. Thanks for your comment. I certainly hope so! I planned for two books in the series, but life got in the way. I've got all the research books purchased and notes taken, but there's still much to do. Cheers! :)

  2. Same comment, different day (almost a year later)! I'm also hoping there is a sequel to "Dead Girl Running." It was SUCH a good story, but so incomplete as it ended! Any further word on the possibility?

    1. Thanks for your question. I'm hoping to finish the series someday, because I love the characters so much. That's all I can say at the moment.
