A Diamond in my Pocket

Escape from your ordinary life and become immersed in the fantasy world of superpowers, parnormal abilities, with a hint of romance. Breaking the 100m world record, sixteen-year-old Calli is whisked away to a secret facility where she’s placed with other teens possessing superhuman speed. She soon finds herself in a deadly situation involving other superpowers, a magical diamond, and deception.

Calli is placed on a delivery team assigned to transport a mystical diamond to a clan of healers gone rogue. She’s secretly entrusted with carrying the real diamond while the team leader unknowingly carries a fake. The diamond infuses Calli’s body with multiple supernatural abilities which she uses to reveal a traitor in their midst and to foresee the tragic futures of her companions. She reads the mind of one of her teammates and finds he thinks she is his soul-mate because of a vision he’d been shown. While she knows her powers derive from the secret diamond in her possession, her companions do not, and Calli dreads the fast-approaching day when they will discover the truth–the day she hands the diamond over to the evil healers and parts with her powers.

The Diamond of Freedom

In The Diamond of Freedom Calli and Chris race against the clock to identify the power-neutralizing stone that prevents Calli from healing her life-threatening injuries. She must also learn how to counter its effects before she can fight against the rogue Diamond Bearer named Freedom and save her love and the world of her friends.

In the epic battle between extreme cosmic-power holders, weaknesses are exploited and lifetime relationships shattered to gain the upper-hand. Sometimes having no special abilities is what makes someone the most powerful. General Harding, Chris’s father, has made it his life’s mission to eradicate all people with powers.

Calli meets Brand Safferson’s half-sister, self-named Deus Ex, and proclaimed mercenary. Her repeating abilities are necessary to rescue Brand from General Harding’s compound, but the risks of recruiting her to abandon Freedom’s side and join Maetha’s may be deadly. Maetha provides proof that she’s figured out how to heal the DNA of an altered human, creating an unaltered individual.

Harding is determined to complete the studies and become an all-powerful Diamond Bearer—once Chris delivers Calli and her diamond to him.

The Diamond Bearer’s Secret

In The Diamond Bearer’s Secret, Calli Courtnae learns everything she’s been through since receiving a diamond has been in preparation for a much larger purpose. An event looms in the future that could end life as she knows it and Calli’s assistance with prevention is crucial. However, the Diamond Bearers are dividing at a time they should be uniting. The centuries-old comrades are upset about the young companions joining the ranks. They’re unaware Calli can hear their grumblings, and through her, Crimson. The ultimatum still stands: support nature’s will or surrender your diamond.

Problems arise over an anonymous blog revealing critical information about people with powers. The blog must be stopped before the secrets of the Diamond Bearers are released. Unfortunately, the powers contained within the Sanguine Diamond don’t include the ability to shut down a blog. Only those who understand how the virtual world works can fight against a virtual enemy.

With everything escalating around them, Chris and Calli still find time to get to know each other better. Will they like what they find? Will all of the approved Bearers choose to accept a diamond and be defenders of nature? What other information will be found within the files from General Harding’s compound? The more pressing question is what secrets do Crimson and Maetha keep?
