Mauna Kea Rising:

The first novel in the Lost in the Multiverse is a story of hope, grit, and triumph in the face of an epic calamity. In a parallel world, the British Hawaiian Islands sit between rival superpowers, Japan and the UK. A single mother struggles to steer her son into adulthood when an epic solar flare throws their world into chaos. The Pacific power grids fail. Cities plunge into darkness. “A thoughtful, intelligent tale of loss and resilience."—Goodreads Review.    

Elle: The Naked Singularity:

The second book in the Lost in the Multiverse series is science fiction spiked with magical realism, a story in which a college student finds herself lost in the multiverse. When Elle slips to a parallel Earth, she must evade capture and find a way to return to her home world. Elle pulls us into a world of ancient superstition and modern science, and forbidden love. Lost in time. Lost in love. Lost in the multiverse.  But anchoring this suspenseful, propulsive novel is an intimate young woman searching for her place in an upside-down twin world.
