Her unexpected move to Fort Myers Beach, Florida leaves her lonely and frightened. Living with a workaholic aunt she barely knows and looking to start a school where she’s the new girl makes her anxious and unhappy.
Until she meets Scott. He is smart and nerdy, sort of like her, and they hit it off right away. His best friend, handsome, athletic Austin joins them on a surprise adventure back to the past and adds an unexpected complication.
The summer that began so badly becomes the most exciting and dangerous one of her life when she is faced with the dilemma of risking her own life to save someone she doesn’t even know. Is she brave enough to risk it all…especially now that she’s felt the first promise of love?
Austin Burke lives for football. He’s the star quarterback at South Beach High School with the bright future in college and maybe professional football. He isn’t looking for a girlfriend, but then he meets Kelly. She’s brave and funny and can beat him at their favorite video game.
When Austin and Kelly get together with their friends Scott and Zoey for a fun day at the beach on what they think is a deserted island, it goes wrong from the very beginning. They are surprised to find a group of people led by a very frightening man. As they try to find a way off the island, Austin discovers his attraction for Kelly, but he thinks she and Scott are a couple, and he won’t do anything to hurt his best friend.
But then they are attacked by a crazed criminal who is determined to leave no survivors. The teens must work together, and Austin takes charge to attempt to bring them home safely.
Zoey Chandler is popular, beautiful, and rich. Her most important achievement is that she is on the cheer squad. That is, until she accidentally is swept along on a crazy adventure with Austin, Kelly, and Scott. She discovers there is more to life than having a good hair day.
Their newest adventure takes them to a travelling circus where Zoey falls in love with a charming young man named Jesse who trains tigers. Kelly and Austin get closer as the teens learn new jobs and experience a lifestyle very different than they’ve ever known. But love is complicated, especially when there is a time change of almost a hundred years and Jesse is the target of a jealous killer.
If they can save him, how can Zoey make the difficult decision of whether to give up the life she knows and loves for a boy in a different time who has stolen her heart?
Kelly and Austin are left alone while everyone else is on vacation trips with their families. They celebrate the Fourth of July together and grow closer than ever.
But as soon as Scott and Zoey return, the teens take off on an excursion to the past to visit the historic Stanley Hotel. Their goal is to save a little girl named Emma from a kidnapper, but as they celebrate another Fourth of July, Kelly is swept away by her first real kiss.
The teens experience a new and hard lifestyle, all the while hoping to see if the stories about ghosts are true. They meet a lot of interesting people, even some very famous ones, but everyone seems normal.
As they face their first defeat, they are caught by surprise when the same danger that takes Emma also threatens the teens when one of their own is captured in a killer’s web. Will they be able to save Emma? Or will they join her as permanent guests in the ghostly halls of The Stanley Hotel?
You don’t have to believe in ghosts…until you meet one.
Finally, our single title, Life’s What Happens
The email about the gathering popped up on Don Williams’s smart phone and he found himself obediently driving back to the small college town where events years ago shook the world and changed his life forever. A morbid curiosity or a second look from a more mature point of view, he found himself driving up the long fraternity house driveway. It took him longer than expected as his driving tour of the campus pulled his imagination back in time.
What happened next rocked his belief in the past and present. The recollections of his past lovers, friends and events raced into focus and quickly overlaid the reality of now. His ability to change the past and influence the present blurred the lines between what he knew and what he remembered and his trip consumed him.
He relived a college life that spiraled out of control in spite of his best efforts to graduate. With everyone who mattered to him then, he mourned and celebrated the changes that have occurred since. For college life then and now more has stayed the same than not. LIFE’S WHAT HAPPENS is their story, as each is faced with questions much more complicated than any generation past. It is about the year they turned from boys to men, and where their choices took them.
Based on actual events, this is the unwritten story of what really followed the summer that became the most famous summer ever in song and memories.
