Navigating through life as twelve-year-old girl growing up in Southern California can be tricky. Embracing the ginger, sci-fi loving, introverted girl God created her to be — well that’s even trickier. Join Olive on her quest to figure out who God wants her to be, while dealing with the social pressures and problems she encounters at school, church, and in life in general.
Welcome to the “Launch Page” for my new book, “Newfangled,” the first book in my new series, “Desires and Decisions.” This Young Adult Fiction was inspired by my own life experiences, being plunged into a totally different school district after the private school my brother and I attended had to close due to financial difficulties. I have always wanted to write a book that would help my own children navigate the awkward pre-teen years, and that is when I came up with the character of Olive. Although she goes through a few situations that I experienced, this fiction is set in the modern day Southern California, and Olive deals with current events and struggles that today’s 12-year-old girls and boys can relate to. I hope that this book will touch the hearts of young and old alike as you get to know Olive, the Callis family, and the many friends and enemies that keep Olive tethered to the Lord in prayer.
