About Nissa Harlow
Nissa Harlow wanted to be a writer from the time she was a small child, but it took a while before she finally did anything about it. In the meantime, she worked as a volunteer day-camp counsellor, a movie extra, and a digital-photo editor. She even once worked on a conveyor belt in a chocolate factory (which was as stressful—and delicious—as it sounds). These days, she lives in British Columbia, Canada and writes the types of stories she wants to read.

When Ari starts to feel an attraction to her best friend, she makes a big mistake, causing a chain of events that leads to paranormal weirdness... and Eph being hurtled into a parallel universe.
As secrets are revealed and talents are uncovered, Ari and Eph must both decide which world they want to live in... and if that new life will include their best friend.
What's worse than nearly puking in front of a cute guy? Zombies. Definitely zombies.
Sadie isn't feeling so great, but she’s determined not to barf in the book she’s holding . . . especially not in front of that cute guy who’s checking out the library’s pitiful selection of DVDs. So she’s less than thrilled when he follows her into the bathroom, even if it’s just to make sure she’s okay.
When they emerge, the library appears to be closed. Weirder still, it’s surrounded by a strange storm that definitely wasn’t there a few minutes earlier. Sadie and her new friend (or enemy—she hasn’t decided yet) won’t be going anywhere for a while.
Being trapped in a library with a cute guy might not be the worst thing in the world. It might not be the best thing, either . . . especially once that weird storm starts spitting out things that are only supposed to exist in stories.
Brainstorm is a standalone novelette of approximately 16,000 words that incorporates elements of the paranormal, forced-proximity, and Refugee From TV Land tropes.
Seventeen-year-old Ivy just wants life to feel normal again. But that's hard when she's recently lost her twin sister, her parents have uprooted the family, and she's forced to rebuild her social life at a different high school. The fact that her new bedroom appears to be haunted doesn't really help.
The last thing she was looking for was a relationship, but when she meets Kemp after a minor accident in gym class, she thinks she might have found someone who gets it. He's also lost a sibling, so he understands her grief.
But when it becomes apparent that one of the ghosts in Ivy's bedroom is the spirit of Kemp's dead brother, their relationship is put to the test. As desperate messages and long-buried secrets reach across the mists of time, Ivy and Kemp will have to confront the ghosts of the past if they want to have any hope of a future.
