PULL - 978-09881821-0-3 
The world implodes for seventeen-year-old David Albacore and his younger sisters when their father kills their mother. His own dreams for his future class with the dreams of his dead mother. He feels compelled to live for her because he failed in his self-appointed job of protecting her from his violent father. Stuck in a cramped apartment with an aunt he suspects is only interested in the money from his after school construction job, all David wants to do is separate himself from the violence in his past. David deals with homework, and hormones; all drawing him ever closer to Yolanda, the hottest girl in the “in” crowd. His attempts to steer clear of her fail and lead him to discover that she has her own secret wounds, wounds that he alone can heal. But Yolanda means trouble in more ways than one, because she’s pack leader Malik’s girl. Malik has it out for David, not only as a romantic rival, but also on the basketball court and -- most importantly -- as a threat to David’s freshman sister.

 Being God- 978-0-9881821-1-0

Malik Kaplan, bad boy of Farrington High School, has more than just David Albacore to worry about. He has his own cross to bear, or maybe it’s a Star of David; being the black teenaged son of a Catholic mother and Jewish father can make life confusing. He has to deal with an “offer he can’t refuse” from a gang leader, handle parents who never understand him, and learn how to get close to an angry ten-year-old who hates the world. All this while discovering there’s more to life than just crushing all opposition. Especially when the opposition is a fourteen-year-old who has developed an awesome left hook – David’s younger sister. Malik has some growing up to do, as he learns he may not be a god, but he’s not the devil either.
