Freaks of Greenfield High

Winner of the Gulf Coast RWA’s Silken Sands “Self-Published Star” and the Maryland Romance Writers “Reveal Your Inner Vixen” contests,
YA category. Optioned for TV by Cream Drama, Inc.

When a teenage cyborg is forced to hide out at a small-town high school, the unthinkable happens: she falls in love.

Jay’s a cyborg who looks just like normal teenage girl. She’s super-strong, super-smart, and she can even appear to grow and age like a human. When a covert organization intent on using Jay as a weapon comes after her, she needs to find a place where she can blend in. Greenfield High seems perfect—except that the boys think she’s totally hot and keep hitting on her, and she has no clue how to handle the attention. Who knew high school could be so perilous?

To add to her confusion she’s evolving—experiencing human emotions for the first time. So when she encounters ex-jock-turned-outcast Tyler, he sends her logical brain into a spin. She’s just starting to get the hang of this girlfriend/boyfriend thing when her pursuers track her down. Now’s so not the time for a cyborg to fall in love and get all emotional!
