At the start of 7th grade, Jason Bell’s biggest concerns involve avoiding bullies, befriending the popular kids and winning the heart of the girl, he has a crush on. All that changes when a mysterious new family moves into the house next to Jason’s and his schoolmates begin to behave strangely. As the unexplained changes spread amongst his peers, Jason vows to solve the mystery only to find it ties into a dark episode from his past and into psychic powers, he did not know he possesses. Sector 5 is a suspenseful 70,000 word middle grade novel, the first in a series. In the tradition of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, monsters are stand-ins for the real life pressures teens face. Sector 5 has elements of Carrie and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, with relatable characters that readers of all ages can easily identify with and root for.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a survivor of the unique hell we call Junior High, I wanted to create an exciting page turner that can also serve as a guidebook for kids during those difficult years and let them know they are not alone.
