Woven (June 2022)
By Stephania Thompson
Bound by a devastating secret, childhood friends David, Josh, and Kate take on home renovation as a means of healing from a dark, shared past.
Their only promise? Friendship first—no hookups.
Only several months after moving into their Baltimore fixer, the aptly nicknamed Canton Catastrophe, walls are crumbling, sparks are flying, and promises are getting ignored.
Josh, a paramedic, is plagued with panic attacks, haunted by the past, and sharing a room with David, who he is definitely not attracted to. And then there's Kate. She's having a job crisis, popping pills, and pretending she doesn’t notice how distant the boys have grown. And David? The eternally calm, blue-eyed beauty’s health is deteriorating and he’s mysteriously blacking out.
But when they learn someone may have discovered their darkest secret and is now stalking them--and blackmailing Josh's father, a conservative media personality with secrets of his own, renovation and relationship woes take a back seat. Suddenly, their past is unraveling, and the shocking truths unearthed will have them questioning everything from family ties and friendships to love, loss, and the lengths they’re willing to go for each other.

Piper, children's picture book
A follow-up to the much loved, award-winning Grumbler!
"A pleasant tale about battling negativity." -Kirkus Reviews
Piper is cheery and positive, no matter what confronts her—including all the strange beings she meets during her journey into the city. When the creatures are negative, uglies fly out of their mouths and stick to Piper, dimming her glow. Can Piper find her positive shine again after she is completely covered in uglies?
Piper is a story of staying positive in challenging situations, and recognizing that we control how we react to stressors. It teaches children the value of optimism and finding happiness within.

What happens when an exuberant exclamation point keeps taking over a story? Things get pretty interesting...
Pling is an exclamation point--he adds excitement to stories. He has one rule to follow: he can only appear twice in the story. As the tale of three goats unfolds, Pling has trouble staying out of the story until he's needed. Things get a bit out of hand and hilarity ensues.
