It’s 2049, in a Russian-occupied America ravaged by civil war. Valerie Kipplander—daughter of the assassinated secretary of state—is thrown in jail. When the regime discovers this daughter of privilege is also a talented culinary student, she’s forced into service in the kitchen of a Russian general whose troops occupy New York.
The general’s mansion proves a prison of a different sort. The head chef has a mysterious past. The Russians have a more insidious agenda than what they’ve promised. The resistance wants her on their side. And one of the guards wants her dead.
Valerie knows she must take a stand. The risks are monumental, the choices few. But how long can she serve the men bent on destroying her beloved country?
When she suspects a big-name slugger of cheating—and wonders why nobody else is calling him on it—she’s square on the horns of an ethical dilemma.
If she lets him get away with his dirty tactics, she’ll hate herself for it. But blowing the whistle on a popular player could risk her career...and maybe her twin brother’s major-league prospects, too. In a baseball establishment looking to show the world that a woman can’t hack it on the field, can Margie keep her integrity—and her job?
THE CALL is a B.R.A.G. medallion honoree.
Playful, inventive, and chilling, this collection of short stories is destined to become a Halloween tradition, like checking the candy for razor blades.

B.R.A.G. Medallion HonoreeStand-up comic Frankie Goldberg's Hollywood life falls apart with an exclamation point when a mudslide destroys her hopes, her home, and her entire collection of impractical footwear. She returns to her mother's B&B in Woodstock, New York, expecting the comfort that home once provided, but continually finds that the joke's on her. In Frankie's absence, some things have changed--and some, to her dismay, are exactly as she'd left them. A lighthearted-but-serious romantic comedy about love, trust, second chances, squabbling sisters, and baseball.
