The Olympia Heights Series!


Overview

They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but for Zach Jacobs, that just isn’t true. It’s hard enough being seventeen– juggling school, football, friends, and teenage romance– but Zach’s about to find out just how complicated it can get when he begins to suspect that maybe he was the lightning.

Teenage woes hardly seem significant when you’ve got lightning shooting from your fingertips and a couple of murderous Titans trying to settle an ancient score.

Overview

Most teenagers just think they’re immortal. Six months ago fourteen students at Olympia Heights Senior High found out that they really are. Now summer vacation has begun and everyone has far too much free time on their hands.

Hormones, tempers, and the temptation of godly power get stirred up by a suspicious new gossip blog about their little slice of the Miami Dade County. Soon this blog, called Discordia, has the members of The Pantheon pitted against each other. Impulsive teenagers with ancient abilities make for a lot of collateral damage.

Overview

For the members of The Pantheon, it's becoming harder to keep a low profile. Two years of battling Titans is finally beginning to take its toll. The rising body count has not gone unnoticed, and watchful eyes threaten the safety of Devon and Frank's new child.

 
When Olympia Heights Senior High goes on a class trip to Athens, The Pantheon is divided by six thousand miles of ocean. For The Olympians, the trip is plagued by teenage shenanigans, foreign serial killers, and hidden portals to the worlds of the gods.

The third installment of the Olympia Heights series ends with a shocking turn of events that will leave you wondering, "Wait... can they really die?"

Overview

The end is near. Five months ago, Zach Jacobs received a postcard from his oldest enemy. Now, Kronos’ arrival in Olympia Heights is having deadly consequences. College plans are derailed as The Pantheon switches into survival mode, and an old ally is pulled back into the fray by tragedy. As Kronos’ return threatens the very heart of humanity, the Olympians are faced with a choice: to surrender to his will or to leave their mortal lives behind. The stakes are high when anyone could be a servant of the enemy.

The final chapter of the Olympia Heights saga promises death, danger, and the answer to the most important questions of all. What caused the Olympians to be locked away all those years ago? And can they be trusted with humanity now?

Amy's Other Books!



Overview

Kissing Corpses starts as a vampire romance, but quickly spirals into a suspense horror novel. Kendall Harker thinks she's met Mr. Perfect when a stranger, Rawdon Hale, rescues her from a possibly deadly mugging. Her new beau looks good on paper, but soon Kendall discovers that he is hiding a terrible secret: he's a vampire. When Rawdon decides that he wants to turn Kendall into a creature of the night, Kendall isn't given much choice. She must reach out for help from a rude and callous vampire hunter who only cares about his catch and has no interest in Kendall's well-being.


"Miss Kendall Harker,

From the night we first met, I knew that you belonged at my side. There was something extraordinary about you, even in your most fragile moment.

In all of my time on this earth I have never met a woman as beautiful as you who has the wit and the strength of will to match it. Feeling the pounding of your heart through your breasts, warm against my chest, as we lay together, reminds me of what it feels like to be alive. Not since my death have I felt such excitement and hope for my future. Our future.

All of my roaming through time has been for the sole purpose of finding you. I never wish to be separated from you. Never again will I have to go to my grave alone. My daily death will be a sweet respite with your body next to mine. You are mine, and either you or I or both shall perish before I ever let you go.

Forever Yours,
Rawdon Hale"

Amy's New Project



After the completion of a four-novel-arch, Olympia Heights is rebooting as a graphic novel with new villains, new monsters, and slightly modified back-stories. Where the novel series used a Neoclassical account of mythology, the comic will primarily draw from Classical Greek sources. You can pledge to get copies of the first volume; posters, shirts, and other swag; and even signed copies of the original novel series.

Check out her Kickstarter page!
