College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move, compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, she has a decision to make.
Except more complications arise when a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help. According to Jessica, everyone is born with an inner energy called Essence. Only a select few, Amethysts, can control Essence and heal people. Jessica claims to be an Amethyst and asks Lexi to join her and a group of her friends as they track the murderers. Despite her personal plight, Lexi considers working with them but soon discovers their secrets run deep: Not only do Jessica's friends have a hidden agenda, but they also harbor extraordinary abilities.
Even more unsettling, they have connections with the Ray-pacs – the sadistic killers who are preying on human Essence. Ultimately, Lexi must decide if life, not death, equals salvation. And if so, is she willing to make sacrifices and join her friends in eradicating the Ray-pacs?
Amethyst is the first novel in the Guardian series, a spellbinding, young adult, urban fantasy series. One that wouldn’t be complete without a love triangle at the heart of the story.

About the Author
I live in Washington with my husband, Dan, and two children, Dawson and Laci, and our three cats, Lyon, Maci, and Tyger. I graduated from Western with my teaching certificate and find that substitute teaching gives me the best balance: time for family, exercising, cooking, reading, writing, and of course time to guest teach in several different classrooms. Promoting a fun learning environment but without the lesson planning is awesome. "Amethyst" is my first novel in the Guardian series, followed by the sequel, "Linked," and the final book in the trilogy, "Dentelle." They are all available in ebook format. Thank you to Randi, a complete stranger, who was the first to review Amethyst and who also rated it 5 stars!
