THE ONLY INFINITE
MIDDLE GRADE SCI-FI
Lena’s sports-crazy brother faces life in a wheelchair, and his only chance at recovery is a dude who’s totally Cuckoo McQuackers. He claims to be descended from Atlantis, which seems about as likely as Lena getting a date to Sadie Hawkins… until she sees the lost city with her own eyes.
And it’s not just a city. Not anymore.
In the centuries since Plato, Atlantis has spread under every continent, far beneath the reach of even the deepest drills. Here, gadgets spice up everything from gym class to the way Lena brushes her teeth. Throw in a pendant that unravels the mystery of her birth mother and a cute boy from a rival school, and it’s a dream come true.
Then Lena is targeted by PYRE, a militant group bent on expanding Atlantis to Earth’s surface. Turns out, her mom’s pendant holds a secret a certain Mr. McQuackers would do nearly anything to protect – maybe even put her brother in a wheelchair. And, in the wrong hands, it poses an even bigger threat than PYRE.

CHAPTER ONE: THE MISPLACED MONUMENT
When the Eiffel Tower vanished, Lena Rush was in a tree house in Jupiter, Florida. More specifically, she was in the burning wreckage of what had been a tree house before it had… well, exploded.
It was too bad, really. She and her little brother, Zac, had only discovered the wooden shack a few months before, snared in the branches of an ancient oak. The wobbly boards leading up to it had threatened broken bones to anyone stupid enough to try them, but she knew if she didn’t go Zac would. And she wasn’t about to be outdone by a ten-year-old.
Together, they’d cleared out some old bird’s nests and patched the roof with duct tape. By the end, it wasn’t pretty, but it didn’t leak. And the window hacked into one side offered a killer view of the ocean, which set Lena’s surfer heart singing with each pulsing wave.
