Plies, Pranks, and Hocus Pocus 

An MG Contemporary Fantasy 
Lyssa's Holiday Hijinks, Book One

Pranks are the best thing about Halloween — until a ghost pulls one on you.

When 11-year-old Lyssa Klarken discovers the legend about her ballet school being haunted is true, she thinks she’s won the candy-filled jackpot.

But treats turn to tricks when Nadia, the ghost of a star ballerina, starts pranking her. Nadia only agrees to leave Lyssa alone if she frees her from her unfinished business. There’s just one problem: Nadia can’t remember what that is.

 

Lyssa has six days to figure it out and save Nadia from torment. If she fails, the tables will turn: Lyssa will be haunted for the rest of her life. Can she solve the mystery before the curtain rises on October 31st?

Story Snippet

The only thing I love more than acing a superhard ballet combo is pulling off the perfect prank. Every year during October, all the students at the Boston Institute of Dance, or BID, have free rein to pull the best Halloween prank on anyone they want—even older classes and dance mistresses and masters! Halloween is my favorite holiday, but since starting at BID, I’m team tricks, not treats.

Book Two

An MG Contemporary Fantasy 
Lyssa's Holiday Hijinks, Book Two

They say love conquers all, but does that include adulthood?

After years of being friend-zoned as she watched Catie date other people, Addie finally got her wish. She and Catie started dating shortly after the start of their senior year of college. Now they're ready to leave dorm rooms and cast parties behind in favor of shooting for the stars in the real world- together. 

But when Catie receives devastating news about her mother and the hottest grad student in school sets his sights on Addie's girl, they both realize growing up may actually mean growing apart.
