I’m excited to announce that my Young Adult romantic mystery series is going to be published by Diversion Books! I’ve been keeping the premise of this book a bit of a secret and I’m so glad to finally be able to share it with you…
THE DELTA GIRLS is a five-book series about five sisters who can glimpse the future with one of the five senses each…
When the Delcarta sisters gather around the bed of their comatose youngest sister, Savannah, the unexpected happens. Not only does the sixteen-year-old awaken, but a unique ability awakens inside each of them: the five sisters can glimpse the future with one of the five senses each; Savannah with sight, Serena with sound, Sasha with scent, Tamara with taste, and Talia with touch.
Their gift only works by working together, so they must put aside sibling rivalry and collaborate, putting their sensory glimpses together to form a complete picture and work out the significance of their predictions.
As they experiment with their unique psychic ability and try to keep their secret on a ‘need to know’ basis while attempting to have a normal teenage social life with fun, friendship, and romance, they come across mysteries to solve and people to help in their small town community of Iris Harbour. But the one mystery they long to solve more than anything is the disappearance of their father nine years earlier.
Their determination to find out what happened takes over their lives and sends them on an unstoppable journey of discovery that will test not only their powers, but their inner strength and bonds of sisterhood.
Each book will be told from the point-of-view of one sister, and titled according to that sister’s particular psychic sense:
Book 1: SIGHT
Book 2: SOUND
Book 3: SCENT
Book 4: TASTE
Book 5: TOUCH
The Delta Girls are Savannah, Serena, Sasha (triplets), and Tamara and Talia (twins). The ‘delta’ part of the title relates to delta brainwaves that normally only occur in deep sleep and comas, but have been linked to psychic ability.
The books will be available in both print and ebook, with the first book releasing in Spring 2015 (American Spring, so Australian Autumn!).

THE DELTA GIRLS
Five Sisters. Five Senses. One Gift. No Instructions.
My publisher, Escape Publishing, is updating their website and revamping their categories for various books. They are looking for the right name to give a category of books that don’t quite fit into other categories, including some of my books such as Fast Forward, I Dream of Johnny, and Starstruck in Seattle.
Can you help?
What these books have in common is that they are set in the real world but have elements of something magical or supernatural, but are not full-on paranormals or fantasy books. They may be comedies or emotional dramas or mysteries, but all have a magical element that is crucial to the story, such as time travel, ghosts, wishes and magic lamps, illusions, premonitions, magic powers…etc.
If you come up with the winning title you can win a set of these books from Escape Publishing! So what do you think? Are they best described as Romagic, Supernatural, Alternate Reality, Other-Worldly, Romantic Illusion, or something else?
