Mud Pies

A story about moving through grief and finding happiness

Treemates Fox and Squirrel are good friends. But when one of them doesn’t come home, the other begins a journey through feelings of worry, sadness, anger, and loss. Until one day they turn a corner and find happiness. Moving through grief can be messy, but sometimes comfort is covered in mud and waiting to be discovered.

A Unicorn Queen Novel

Paperback | Ebook

...Or purchase from your favorite online bookseller.

Seventeen-year-old Tessa O’Sullivan has no idea magic exists. She figures she’s having a rough year plagued with black-outs, memory loss, and sleep deprivation. She doesn’t know her true self is bound in human form because the ancients punished her for defying them or that she ticked off a god who’s bent on destroying her.

When Tessa’s family disappears, she’s thrust into a world of magic and deadly curses with two boys. Musician Cyrus Burns may be her soulmate, or a thief sent to destroy her with a kiss. And Cyrus’s enemy Edric is a family friend who in reality is the Elven King of Tir Na Nog, Tessa’s former lover from a past life who wants to keep her safe, even at the expense of her freedom.

Trusting either of them is impossible because they both keep dangerous secrets. If Tessa doesn’t save her family, they’ll be lost forever, and she’ll be pulled, hooves kicking, into the underworld for all eternity. She’s about to learn as an immortal unicorn queen, past lives can catch up to you and there are some fates worse than death.

About Me

Photo of me (Michelle).

I wanted to grow up to be a mermaid and have a unicorn and decided the next best thing to having fins is being a writer. I'm a mom of four who lives in a cabin in the woods with my husband, two youngest boys, three dogs - well technically two, but spirit dogs count - and seven chickens. The unicorns are still in the works.

I grew up in Illinois but moved to Arizona when perms were still a thing. My bachelor’s degree is from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. In addition to writing for children and young adults, my articles appear regularly in magazines. I also write and edits fun things for a magical place called Camelot Therapeutic Horsemanship.
