My Books With pride, I share with you the two novels I self-published by age 25. Feel free to contact me to discuss the books! Sadie, a sixteen year old girl who has just experienced a life-changing tragedy, finds herself forced into a relationship with her paternal grandmother. As Sadie spends time with her, she realizes that there is a lot more to Nonna than meets the eye. As her grandmother recalls the events of her life, a bond deepens and Sadie transforms and grows with retold memories. A tale of love and loss, triumphs and defeats, betrayals and friendships, this story teaches us how the past can lead us to the future while exploring a woman’s place in Italian culture Eloise Carlisle has lived a perfect life with her physicist parents inside the walls of the Compound. They have everything they need in order to have a fulfilling existence, and there is never any violence or disorder. Sentinels, walls, and weapons protect them. But from what? When a dangerous stranger arrives in a helicopter and takes Eloise away, she is awakened to a world that she had never known existed. Armed with new knowledge of the past, Eloise has a choice to make about what kind of future she will help to establish. Will she go back to the Compound and be the obedient girl that she has always been? Or will she work with the Alliance to right the wrongs that she helped create?
