"I wasn't sure what to feed a vegetarian, but with my advanced cooking skills I knew I'd be up to the challenge." He pulled out a jar of strawberry jam and another of peanut butter. He looked over at her with his eyebrows raised."I'll take two.""Our high class date continues! I brought carrot sticks, too. And chips, yogurt, and juice boxes.""Aww!""No! Don't you 'aww' me. These are very adult juice boxes. Not cute at all. See!" He held a box out to her. "Organic!""I see! Not adorable. These are serious juice boxes."
"How did you know I was awake?" Sam asked.Violet turned her head away to cover up her smile. "I just did.""Viiiiiolet. Are you the reason I'm awake?" Sam's skin prickled. She'd been counting on her sister's unwillingness to use her ability on Sam's mind, but an eerie feeling that it was a bad assumption to make crept over her."I had a bad dream!" Violet dove under the pillows and made her way under the one Sam was laying on.

Human World, July 29.
The huge black wolf gained on her with every passing moment. Her muscles burned with pain, sweat covered her skin, her breathing heavy. Could she still outrun him?
Dodging between the trees, she tried and failed to put the distance between them. Was she so predictable that he knew which way she’d turn, even before she did?
She took another sharp turn around a thick tree on her left, its cracked bark brushing her side. Stealing a glance over her shoulder, she saw a gleam of white teeth and a set of watchful eyes—round enlarged irises encircled by a sliver of blue. Those eyes did not belong to an animal. These were human eyes—in a wolf’s body.
The light bounced off the wolf’s thick coat in a blue-black sheen. He was enormous, much bigger than a normal wolf. A low growl escaped him as he almost missed the turn, his claws scraping the ground. She cackled and surged forward, but he was right behind her, too close, too fast, concentrating on her every move. With another growl, the wolf advanced, his lean body elongating into a long stretch as he tackled her. She collapsed with a yelp under his weight, and they rolled in a tight embrace, kicking and nipping at each other, the momentum forcing them down a slope.
Her coat was as black as the wolf’s, only shorter and slicker, and her sharp teeth as lethal. She matched his growling with hers, deep and throaty. Her long leopard tail swished wildly each time the force of their fall put her on top. The air around them shook in a shimmering undulation as if lifting from a scorched asphalt road in summer. Two wild animals shape-shifted into two teenagers, as the slope ended in a small flat clearing between the trees.
“I outran you. Again.”He pulled back and, with a smile, looked down at Jasmira. His eyes twinkled with admiration. “Only because I let you.”She laughed and lightly punched his side. “You’re so full of it, Jatred.”“Ouch, what was that for?” he asked in mock exasperation.“To bring you back to reality.” She giggled and tried to get up, but he pinned her arms to the ground and leaned closer.“You hit the Winter Prince, woman. Now you have to pay.”Her lips parted when he kissed her again, long and slow. “I like the price,” she whispered, her voice echoing in his mind.“This is just a down payment,” Jatred murmured.

Young Adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel.
Two Seattle 16-year-olds, Jatred and Jasmira, are not your typical star-crossed lovers. They are not even your typical Shape Shifters. Sure, they try to live an ordinary life. At least, as ordinary as the Prince and the Princess of the rivaling ancient Races--the Winter wolves and the Summer leopards--can live. But eventually they learn that not much about their existence can be normal. Especially when the Races' two commanding Goddesses are involved.
One of the Goddesses is on a quest to tilt the scale of power to her side. The other will never let it happen, even if it means kicking Jatred and Jasmira's love to the curb. Nothing is off limits, including removing Jatred's memories of Jasmira.
To complicate things even more, there are the Universe's powers to consider. They are trapped in an ancient Amulet in order to protect the stability of the world. But the Universe has a mind of its own, and when the powers are unleashed, the forces of nature are disturbed; earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions shake the Earth. All Shifters of both Races are summoned by their respective Goddesses to fight in the name of, or against, the normalcy of the world.
The forces of nature are disrupted. Earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions rake the world. The Goddesses go to war and summon all their Shifters to join in the conflict. Jatred and Jasmira must fight not only for their love but to protect the future of both Races and humankind.
