To Live and Die for Dance
BALLET’S DRAMAS – REAL AND IMAGINED
To Live and Die for Dance is a Young Adult mystery/ ghost drama. The story's central crime and paranormal activity are fiction; the struggle for success in this rarefied atmosphere is not.
Ballet provides a natural environment for behind the scenes high-drama. It is generated by virtue of its strict discipline, illusion of ease, the shortness of its stage life for any one ballet dancer, as well as its knife-like competitiveness, as demonstrated by reality shows such as Breaking Pointe and Dance Moms.
Witness the struggles of an aspiring young adult ballet dancer who is unwillingly plunged into paranormal activity while she struggles through the difficulties of becoming a professional. Delve into a deliciously haunting story of an old, unsolved crime.
"An enjoyable read from start to finish, the author shows great insight into the professional world of dance, crafting a fascinating adventure of an 18-year-old girl who gets caught up in the dance world, begins to see a ghost that is haunting the dance studio, and then agrees to help the ghost capture her killer." - Hollywood Book Festival.

Concord Academy is a small private school in South Florida, and a supposed safe haven for misfits from kindergarten to twelfth grade. All is not as it appears to the tuition-paying parents. The harsh punishments from the overly dramatic principal, along with the actions of her favorite student, a bully named Wolfgang, bring stress to the students and faculty at the school.

A Collection of Metaphysical Short Stories
Beyond’s young adult short stories cross cultures and take place in settings from North America to Europe. A metaphysical / religious motif binds the collection, and stories are set in times dating back to 1932—when swing dancing in Detroit was the rage—to a recent state science competition in New Mexico. “Play” deals with a girl’s attempt to mitigate her feelings about violence in the home; in “Callanish Stones”, a young boy is found on a remote beach in Scotland, barely alive; “Finding Edith Allen” centers on a young woman in search of her birth mother; and “Mont. St. Michel” tells the story of a child raised by a Bishop in France. The short stories are traditional storytelling with a focus on character, setting, and an event. In “Mind Over Maelstrom” Clare has a gift she keeps secret from birth until a violent storm overcomes her neighborhood; and “Marker at Yellowknife” takes the reader to one of the most remote locations in North America along the shores of the Great Slave Lake. The stories mix male and female protagonists with families and friends, often in school settings, and allow each reader to discover something new.
