The Blurb: A Lost Tribe Series
Seventeen year old Ollie Miller is ready to leave all of her hurt feelings behind, but moving on seems impossible while living next door to her ex-best friend, Mateo. When curious earthquakes begin to shake and rip open the foundation of her small town, the ground becomes as unsteady as her feelings for him. When they fall, they fall hard… Ollie’s disastrous attempt to save Mateo’s brother from falling into a curious chasm results in their descent into a cavernous wonderland. Ollie, Mateo, Jesse, and Alexis search for a way back home, and encounter a mysterious tribe of natives. Gabriel, the next in line to lead his people, is granted permission to guide them to the surface. On their treacherous journey, an overzealous elder threatens all of their lives, because he can’t risk them exposing his people, or the power he wields. The group discovers ancient secrets, unexpected truths, and uncharted feelings. Ollie must find a way out or risk being stuck in the caves forever—or worse, dead.
About Kallie
Over time my love for learning gravitated toward studying conspiracy theories and contradictions in our culture. My conclusions have ignited a passion to write compelling young adult fiction that incorporates legend, conjecture, fantasy, and conviction.
I love being a wife, mother, friend, writer, and teacher. I began teaching high school English in 2002 and started blogging and podcasting in 2008. I have a brilliant husband, two redheads, and never imagined my life would ever be this fun!

The Blurb: The Holding on Series
For five years Becca has been struggling to hide her feelings for her best friend, Brad. Now she finally has a chance to move on. She’s in a new city, she’s attending a new school, and she’s met the first guy besides Brad who’s held her attention in a long time. Not only is Ethan attractive, he’s an amazing tennis player, and he might just be Becca’s match on and off the courts.
Brad has loved Becca for as long as he can remember. Now that Becca’s family has moved two thousand miles away, Brad may finally be ready to lay his heart on the line and do whatever it takes to hold on to Becca.
But is Brad too late? Or will Ethan’s secret drive Becca back into Brad’s arms? Torn between her love for Brad and the promise of something new and exciting with Ethan, Becca has an almost impossible choice to make, the choice between letting go or holding on.

This book is a young adult romance, intended for readers as young as 14 years old. 
ABOUT Rachael
Author of YA Romance novels - traditionally published & Indie author.
I am your average early thirties (29 is anyone asks) working mom. I spend most of my days either at work or playing with my son as much as possible.  I have an addiction to Facebook, especially Bingo on Facebook.  I’m not proud of it but I also can’t help myself.  You might be able to find me on a local driving range since I have taken up golf.  If you happen to see me you might want to stand back as I am NOT THAT GOOD.  As with everything in life, I will get better over time.  At least I hope I will.

So, how did I get into writing?  Well, when my son started kindergarten last fall I found that I had a ton of time on my hands during the day if I wasn’t at work.  I am easily bored.  I decided that I would try to finish a book that I wrote a long time ago (before I graduated college) just to pass the time.  Well, that didn’t go as well as I planned.  I was young and inexperienced when I started that book.  It was less than impressive so I started over.
‘Holding On’ was the product of me scraping that first book.
