Before We Go will be released by Red Deer Press on May 15, 2012. Pre-order is available from Amazon (US), Amazon (Canada), Barnes & Noble, and from your local bookstore.

Before We Go is my first novel for young adults. When seventeen-year-old Emily Henderson leaves the hospital on New Year’s Eve after visiting her grandmother, she isn’t expecting to do anything except spend the night at home. But when she is convinced by Alex and Lucy, a brother and a sister, to tag along on their plans, she is swept up in a night where secrets are unraveled, ones that have spanned generations.
