The Redwood Revenger (Book 1)

Olivia Ermine, 16, orphaned in a tragic wine-country ballooning accident, has been with Uncle Ernie ever since. He’s a (non)standard genius rockstar-status artist. They’ve left their chaotic globetrotting life behind and moved back to their ancestral family home in Redwood, a charming Cascadian university town. Yet, the transition’s had a few quirks…disturbing dreams and now visions of a scruffy, floating, saucer-eyed musical toy pig. To make matters worse, she’s pursued by an evil, straight razor wielding dandified sock monkey. Meanwhile, VanDirks, a worldwide fast-food megacorp that got its start in the 1600s in the slave trade, is after her uncle. Olivia’s family has something that VanDirks desperately needs to complete its domination of the planet…and they will stop at nothing to get it!

Approx. 310 pages (97,000 words) in length.

Red Bush (Redwood Revenger, Book 2)
Coming in August of 2018

Olivia Ermine discovers her dark birthright and that of the VanDirks Corporation, while her relationship with Basho grows more complicated. Meanwhile, Byron Rosebeetle, Master Thespian, enjoys the pleasures to be had in and out of the barn with a swazzle, yet the barn hides a terrible secret. Trudy Yamaguchi reckons with cricket-flour, a possibly rogue-AI, and overly frank protocol llamas (the furry kind). Meanwhile, the Sock Monkey, everyone’s favorite woolen murder-machine dons a neck-ruff and takes to the stage…for the show must go on before the Lords Arboreal return. Olivia’s legacy is vengeance, will she take up the burden of the galaxy?
