Into Dust: The Thunderbird Chronicles


"Janey Santiago is the Wonder Woman of West Texas—she's an anti-hero that is growing into something bigger than she may even realize." 

A.J. Mayers, author of FINAL BOARDING

"THE FREQUENCY starts with a wink toward THE WIZARD OF OZ, and quickly goes down the rabbit hole of THE MATRIX or MISTER ROBOT. A darkly conspiratorial reimagining of just what this climate change really means." -- Actress Jen Ponton, DIETLAND

"Highlands Christmas made me want to go to Scotland!" "Perfect for a Christmas read snuggled up with a warm drink." - ARC Readers

Mystery, romance and suspense in the West Texas Desert! A fast-paced, supernatural action/adventure. Janey Santiago is the strong, inspiring, cynical but hopeful, down-to-earth heroine that we’ve all been waiting for. The intriguing, believable characters, and engaging plot left me hungry for the next book! I can't wait to find out what is in store for Janey Santiago and her handsome, bad-boy mentor, Augusto, as they work for justice in West Texas and the border towns of Mexico.

As a middle school English teacher, I have read lots of young adult novels. Some are great, some are uninspired. I found Into Dust to be not only inspired, but inspiring. It will most definitely be on my recommended reading list for the upcoming school year. Now, I patiently await the next book in the series.

Monica Van Tuyle, Middle School English Teacher

The book was an impressive start for what I hope is a long-running series. I could truly feel the settings as I read the descriptions. Each character was distinct and not stereotypical at all. I could say I knew a few of these people in my life.

The kindle book was hard to put down, even at 3am.
