A retelling of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella, Pumpkin Run is Book 1 in the Castlewood High Tales, a clean & wholesome high school romance series.

Even though she’s a junior at Castlewood High, Cici Norwell’s life is anything but magical. She spends her days cooking and cleaning for her stepmother, a badly aging beauty pageant queen, and doing homework for her two mean girl stepsisters, Stacie and Drew, all while trying to earn straight A’s so she can one day escape to college… and freedom.



Team Peabrain

A retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, Team Peabrain is Book 2 in the Castlewood High Tales, a clean & wholesome high school romance series.

Bronwyn Clancy would do anything to win the title of junior captain of the Academic Team at Castlewood High School so she can get close to her long time crush, Adam Greenville, the senior captain of the A-Team. From volunteering to chair the thankless Castlewood High Redirection Project to taking two science classes her junior year taught by Mrs. Monnark, the A-Team advisor, Bronwyn is sure that being named junior captain of the A-Team would help her win both a college scholarship and Adam's heart.
