At the age of nine, Jillian Waters’ idyllic childhood dissolved the day her mother disappeared. She somehow survived the loss, but that doesn’t mean she emerged with her heart intact.  She spent the next twenty years moving from town to town with her police officer father as he worked on the case of his life.  She built up sturdy walls to protect her heart from anything close to love.  

 

Now living in Chicago within arm’s reach of Lake Michigan, which, along with her dad, has been the only constant in her life, she meets Drew Montgomery.  He is a boat builder and a man of passion, searching for someone with whom to build his life, his way, with a solid foundation and plenty of heart.  Their mutual love of the lake draws Jillian and Drew into a relationship unlike any she has ever dared to risk.  When Jillian discovers a connection to her mother, she must decide to walk away or risk her heart on a man who may hold answers to so many questions that have lingered throughout her life.    

 

Waters’ Reflection is a story of connections, loss, and strength - in the face of danger and on the chance of love.  Love always matters.

After a boating accident in his teen years left him feeling guilty over the death of a child, Kerry Montgomery has resigned himself to a steady, quiet life in the towers of the Chicago 

Loop.  There are expectations, of course.  He’ll marry for status, even if the society set pinches his every last nerve, and he’ll carry on the Montgomery name, even if he can’t forgive himself for past mistakes.  What’s unexpected?  His attraction to Molly Winters.  She doesn’t have a society name, connections, or money.  She’s more than ten years younger than him.  Not to mention, she’s like a sister - his youngest brother’s best friend.  But most importantly, she has a child - a complete no-go for him.  He’s not supposed to want her, but if he can get over his fears, he might just find a future nobody expected.

 

Molly Winters is not interested in Kerry, his money, or his pain.  She’s had plenty of her own.  Pregnant at sixteen, betrayed by her father, lied to by her mom - trust doesn’t come easy. Before traveling with Kerry to Saint Kitts for his younger brother’s wedding, she was content to raise her son, help her community, and run a small catering business. When she finds herself drawn into his spell, she will need to figure out if she can trust him with her feelings or if it’s all just a little island magic playing tricks on her heart.

 

Winters’ Season is a story of heartbreaking guilt, the search for forgiveness, and the redemptive power of love.  Love changes everything. 
Carter Clark

I had it all figured out: a gorgeous girlfriend, a baby on the way, and a firefighter career I always dreamed of. Life was perfect… until piece by piece, it all fell apart, and I lost my will to live.


Molly Fowler, my best friend from grade school, had saved my life countless times. She helped me heal. At my side when I needed her, she guided me to be a better man, while she herself, was hurting.


But I was too blind to see what was right in front of me. I was too blind to see that we needed each other. I was too blind to see how deeply she was scarred.


Molly Fowler

Life is peachy, isn’t it? Well, maybe to those outside looking in. But not for me. I’d wanted to leave Hope Bay since the moment I understood that my family dynamics were… unique.


I left as soon as I could, but an unknown force kept pulling me back to Hope Bay. A force that would save countless lives. A force by the name of Carter Clark.


But I was too blind to see what was right in front of me. I was too weak to trust in his friendship. Above all, I was too blind to see the danger still waiting for me from a man I’d never thought I’d see again.

Note: Right in Front of You is a standalone novel that follows Carter and Molly’s story from Yours and Mine. Contains spoilers to Yours and Mine. Intended for mature audience only.

This important book focuses on the critical role of educational achievement for the wellbeing and success of vulnerable youth in adulthood. It is concerned with three interconnected issues: the support which is or should be afforded to youth ageing out of state care to enable them to fulfil their academic potential; the interdependence of social aspects of ‘care’ and educational attainment for children growing up in state care; and the conditions which are pre-requisite for transition to fully autonomous adulthood, together with the implications of these for the state’s responsibilities to care leavers.

These issues are addressed through a review of international literature based on the educational outcomes and life-chances of youth graduating from state care, analysis of the findings of a three-year qualitative study following the educational transitions of young people, and the use of theoretical frameworks to explore the complexities of children’s experiences of the state care system. In doing so the book balances predominantly needs-based discourses with a children’s right perspective, focusing on competence rather than vulnerability and promoting the development of the skills needed for autonomous adulthood.

Reconceptualising Transitions from Care to Independence

should be considered essential reading for researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the fields of education, childhood studies and adoption and fostering services. Additionally, the issues addressed are of wider relevance to youth transitions to adulthood. Youth ageing out of care provide a particularly insightful case study into the broader cohort of young people entering the workforce in an era of a globalised economy and austerity.
