ONE CHANCE, supernatural thriller, out now!

2nd_HC_One Chance_CoverB (2)ONE CHANCE is finally out! It’s published by BeaLu Books. Click to order the paperback or hardcover version. All orders on the Bealubooks.com website will be personally signed by Sarah.

This is Sarah’s first novel, a supernatural thriller full of mystery, action, and time travel. It’s the first in series of 8 books plus 2 prequels. Sarah began writing the book in a notebook while in 5th grade. She rewrote it in 6th grade onto her computer. By 7th grade there was another rewrite, and during 8th grade she worked with an editor to make even more improvements. Several of the books in the series are already in draft form.

“Time can be a tricky thing. If you get lost, you don’t come back. If you get killed, you can’t change it. If you mess with it, not even your family will remember your name, because you’re lost in time forever.”

One Chance_Poster_12x18_WEBWhen Sandy’s parents don’t return from a trip, she finds herself thrust into two orphanages run by the darkly mysterious Marsh sisters. Brian, a new middle school student, seeks out Sandy and reveals the existence of a magical rock: The Stone of Discedo. Threatening notes (or clues?) appear and Sandy, Brian and their fellow orphans find themselves in an escalating series of events. A theft is committed and Sandy is framed; a Sandy-lookalike orphan is brutally murdered. Sandy realizes that she has one chance to change her entire life and get her parents back…by going back in time.

“Sometimes you only have one chance, so you have to take it when you can.”

They Do Not Understand

This poem was written for a friend being bullied

They do not understand.

A gaping hole in a heart kept secret,
A story whispered so no one can hear it.
A finger pressed to the lips to hide it,
An untold tragedy hidden inside it.

They do not understand.

A single tear rolls down your cheek,
A brave face, you are not weak.
A single smile like a beam of sun,
Your work to hide it is never done.

They do not understand.

A warm hand reaches for ours,
A battle cry in hidden wars.
A single blue eye offers a wink,
A ticking clock, no time to think.

They do not understand.

Another hand gropes blind,
Another person, another mind.
Another hand to cling to, to hug and to hold,
Someone with which your story is told.

I understand.

Through a starving fire,
Through a raging storm,
I will hold you,  hug you,
and keep you warm.

I understand.

Another hand reaches out,
The two hands are better together,
I understand, and I will be there,
yesterday, now and forever.

She Won’t Remember

This poem is dedicated to my grandmother, who has Alzheimers.

Tanned feet,
Stretched out on the warm sand,
With the Florida Sun shining down.
In a few years,
Or maybe a few months,
She won’t remember.

She won’t remember,
the feeling of the warm Florida Sun,
or the days spent at the beach,

A warm embrace,
the warm embrace of a loved one,
a heart held close to hers,
but she won’t remember.

A soft kiss planted on her cheek,
From the man who stole her heart,
But she won’t remember.

A loving gaze passed from eye to eye,
From the boy who warmed her heart,
But she won’t remember.

It hurts to know,
That her memories will fade.
It hurts to know,
She’ll become an empty shell of a human,
At one time or another.

At one point in time,
She will no longer be herself.

She will change.

Her memories will disappear,
Taking her personality with them,
And her love,
And her life,
And everything that makes her who she is…
Will be gone.

I can remember,
The days that made up the weeks,
That made up the months,
That made up the years,
That I have spent in her arms,
In her care.
I can remember,
But she never will.

She will never remember,
But I will never forget.
