I’m pleased to announce the publication of my third novel
for young adults. THE DEEP is a companion book to
SHIP OF SOULS and reunites readers with D, Nyla, and Keem.
It’s the summer of 2011 and the new school year looks
promising: Nyla’s falling in love with strong, sensitive Keem
and she’s one of the few Black students to be accepted into
elite Stuyvesant High School in lower Manhattan. But Nyla
can’t ignore the strange visions she’s been having, and when
a man named Osiris promises to reunite Nyla with the mother
who abandoned her at the age of four, Nyla follows him into the
deep—a dangerous realm miles beneath Brooklyn where
members of a secret league fight to keep evil from reaching
the earth’s surface.
You can watch a trailer for THE DEEP here.
Read my essay on Black “geeks & freaks” in YA literature at
The Huffington Post.
The paperback is available today at Rosetta Press andAmazon. You can
also ask your favorite bookstore or library to order the book for you.
Books are a wonderful gift to share with the teens in your life, and a
fast-paced, urban fantasy like THE DEEP is sure to appeal to reluctant
readers and bookworms alike!
