~ Adult Duel-Perspective Time Travel Sci-fi Novel ~
What would happen to our world if man and woman became no more, and only a third gender existed?
In 2063, Qwinn lives in a world of Unity: one government, one race, and one gender. Discontent in a city where art has become obsolete, Qwinn blames the past for stripping the world of color. When Qwinn and their rebel alliance attempt to assassinate the Unity leader, a machine resurfaces from Qwinn’s past. As the rebels are threatened and killed by an unknown enemy, Qwinn may be forced to use the very same time device they blame for the world’s corruption.
In 2030, Axel and Zayla are expecting. On the very day their baby is to be born, Axel adventures into the past to change history. Desiring to raise his family in a war-less society where they don’t have to fear the persecution against their Asian race, Axel gives a vaccine to someone meant to die ten years ago. One act causes a domino effect that changes history forever.

The Lost Friend of Darcy Furwilliam
This children’s picture book, The Lost Friend of Darcy Furwilliam, is 680-words and targeting ages 5 – 9. It has a similar style to The Best Pet of All by David LaRochelle and A Cat Named Mouse by Patti Tingen. This book is told in first person, and no gender is specified for my main character, Darcy, so kids of both genders can relate to the role.
Darcy Furwilliam is content in a lonely apartment meant for two, until his/her only friend, a stuffed dragon named Clementine, goes missing. Darcy fears Clementine has fallen out the window, but discovers Clementine has instead been captured by their archenemy Leonard the squirrel. Now Darcy must brave the scary outside world to rescue their only friend.

With the help of a zealous yet dashing detective, Loralie discovers her family, and those around her, are covering abuse, lies, and criminal acts.
