Sixteen-year-old Madeline has been living on the streets, refusing to be part of the foster system. Biding her time until she's eighteen, with little to no money, she takes on a heist in hopes of making ends meet. What could possibly go wrong?
Getting caught is just the beginning of Madeline's adventure as she meets Weston and discovers the secret of where she came from. A dark and sinister past begins to emerge, and forces Madeline to come face to face with the unexpected.
Is it possible that she isn't who she thought she was? What happens when she is has to accept the reality of what is actually real?
I rush back up the dark stairwell, shoving the key into the doorknob. It takes a minute for the lock to click and I push myself inside the apartment, securing every lock and deadbolt. I can’t stay here in Hutchinson, Kansas any longer. Pulling my phone from my purse, I text Weston.
Tatiana is here. It’s not safe for me.
I grab the few belongings that have any value to me, sentimental or otherwise, and shove it into my shoulder bag, including the stolen silver necklace. It has value and if I’m forced on the run, I’ll need money to survive.
What did Weston mean he knew Tatiana is at the bar? Had he seen her? Is he there?
What do you mean, you know? I type into the phone. If he saw her, why didn’t he warn me? I can’t go down out the front door and it’s only a matter of time until she finds me just a few feet away. I grow restless waiting for an answer.
The phone buzzes and displays an incoming call from Weston. "Wes, tell me you’re here." The only thing to do is hop in his car and drive into the night, far from Kansas.
A female’s voice bubbles with laughter. "Oh he’s coming darling, but you should know he won’t get here in time. Amazing how easy it is to clone a phone number and steal his service. The advancements Stem Tech has made is encouraging."

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book ?
I wouldn't be caught stealing because I wouldn't steal. I'm way too honest (and in that case it's a good thing), but I'm also afraid of getting caught and the consequences, so I wouldn't have been in her position.
What was your inspiration behind this book?
I loved the show Dark Angel on FOX that was forever ago. It really held a lot of science fiction with conspiracies which is what gave me the basis for Stolen Art. From there, I also love The X-Files and Orphan Black, so there was a little more fun involved in steering the direction of the story.
Why did you become a writer?
I've been a writer since I was a teenager. The reason I become an author was because I love writing and wanted to share my stories with the world.
Do you have a favorite author or authors?
John Green. I love his novel, The Fault in Our Stars.
Do you like to write your books in a continuing series?
It depends on the book. Some stories need multiple books to tell the full novel without it being overwhelming. Stolen Art is a stand-alone story.
What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?
Young Adult - Science Fiction, Dystopian, Fantasy
Adult - Romance
As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?
Definitely! It's why I always answer back my readers that send me questions or comments.
Did you have a Cover Designer?
Yes, my publisher designed the cover.
If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be?
Do just re-read your favorite books?
Sometimes but not very often. There are so many books to read, if I always reread all my favorites then I'd never have any new favorites.
Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do?
Yes and it sucks.
