Castle Lark and The Tale that Stopped Time
Two snarky teens thrown together on a tour of post-evacuation, theme-park-like Earth discover an out-of-dome castle ruin beneath the mutant ivy that rekindled Earth life but now impedes human activity. There is an ancient text awaiting within; as they read, time slows; the vine proves sentient; scientists, corporate henchman and worried parents seek the youths; and the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
[Star Trek: The Next Generation meets The Princess Bride]

The Time Dancer
A young Gypsy, trained in magical arts and able to travel the Spiral Map of Time forward, back, and across to a parallel universe (our own), seeks adventure and new spells. Her time-dancing leads her to a disastrous apprenticeship; romance in the ten-years-ago; and forays to the Alternate World, where she finds shelter at a New Age shop, and affirms for its owner the existence of a world of magic just the other side of our dreams.
[The Red Shoes meets Latcho Drom with a plot]

The Two Magicians
When an inexerienced Witch's Familiar is tricked into surrendering her mistress's magic satchel to an ambitious young magician, the hawk-woman's effort to retrieve the satchel exposes a dangerous leakage between the alternating worlds of the Spiral Map of Time; she rallies the fractious Goathorns Coven to pool their powers and repair the damage, realizing too late that their magic threatens the existence of a secret friend.
[Sequel to The Time Dancer, The Two Magicians catches up to the New Age shop owner who befriended the Gypsy, while also providing the back story to the Gypsy's disastrous apprenticeship. A third and final book is planned in this series.]

Where the Sky Used to Be
A socially inept teen artist struggles to break away from her clinging Boomer parents and her more popular best friend's orbit, buffetted between chaotic coming-of-age adventures and the contained drama of a nursing home, where the blind dementia patient she visits after school quickly becomes her cause, then her confessor, oracle, and friend.
[The Breakfast Club meets Tuesdays with Morrie]
