Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Genres I read for fun (i.e. have lots of experience with): Mystery (esp. Golden Age European stuff), Fantasy, YA, Children's, Romance (by preference historical, esp. Regency), and, even better, any combination of the above.
I'd love to edit your book!

I'm a history buff; my favourite time periods are Roman, Medieval, English Georgian and Regency. I'm good at picking up on details that fit those times!

I'm fluent in German and very familiar with German culture - so if your book has anything to do with Germany, I can definitely help you there.
