Flea has always been different from other students in school. He’s not smart or athletic, he’s shorter than kids five years younger than him and his facial features are so pointy that everyone avoids him. His foster mother constantly warns him to avoid attention, though Flea has no idea who’s after them. But Flea has recently discovered several abilities that change his life forever: snowy weather follows him wherever he goes, he stops snowballs in mid-flight and he builds anything in shop class in the matter of minutes despite his lack of training. An appearance on The Great Build-Off – a popular construction game show – leads him to a magical place he thought existed only in Christmas stories.
At the North Pole, Flea feels even more like an outsider. In fact, this storybook village reminds him of every school he’d ever attended, complete with overachievers and underachievers, popular elves and outcasts, even elves who aren’t afraid to march to their own beat. But during his training to become a proper builder elf, he discovers that the North Pole has an arch-nemesis bent on invading the elfish lands and ending Christmas forever. With a war looming against the South Pole, Flea’s sudden appearance at the North Pole is no coincidence, as he questions his role in the fate of the world’s greatest holiday.
“The North Pole Challenge” is not your typical Christmas story. Everyone knows about Santa Claus, his elves and the North Pole but this book provides a fresh outlook on the old familiar tales. Imagine Santa Claus as a reclusive loner, Rudolph as a narcissistic whiner, the elves as cruel party animals. And no great story would be complete without an enemy of epic proportions, another familiar Christmas name with a wicked past never before told…

“How do I even begin to put all the crazy, gushy, ramblings in my brain about this book onto paper?!? Where to even begin?….This book is a MUST read!”
– Hooked In A Book review on Amazon.com
“This was an amazing little gem of a book… It is everything you could want in a book: thrilling, exuberant, filled with myth and well drawn out characters, and a plot that keeps you guessing right to the very end. Unlike anything I’ve ever read before! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something different to read within the YA paranormal genre – or even the adult YA paranormal genre.”
– Margay Leah Justice review on Amazon.com
“I read this book months ago and the plot still sticks with me in its entirety. This book really should be made into a movie – the imagery and plot is all there waiting for the big screen and whoever plays Braedyn is going to explode into superstardom. In the meantime, would Jennifer Quintenz please, PLEASE write the sequel because this is a story that must continue!”
– Memrid, Amazon.com review
“This was a terrific read! After I finished this book (at 2:00 AM on a work night) I immediately went in search for more from this author. I hope to see more from her soon!”
– Wynnona, Amazon.com review
Welcome to Braedyn Murphy’s life. She’s a typical—if shy—sophomore navigating the slings and arrows of high school life with her two best friends, Royal and Cassie. Then a new boy, Lucas, moves into the house next door, and Braedyn finds herself falling in love for the first time.
But Braedyn’s normal life comes crashing down around her ears when she learns she’s a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons – and that she might play a critical role in an ancient war between the Sons of Adam and the Daughters of Lilith. Turns out the right answers aren’t always clear or easy. And as for “good” and “evil” – it all depends on how you choose to act.
Inspired by the ancient Mesopotamian myths of Lilith and her offspring, Thrall explores first love, strong friendships, and taking on adult responsibilities against the backdrop of powerful supernatural forces and life-and-death stakes.

Werewolf Guardian, Damon Trahan lives by a Code: Protect the Pack with his life. Damon has experienced death and betrayal, now all he wants is the freedom of his Harley and the loyalty of the men he rides with, the only family he has left. Those are the things he knows and believes in. Love and the hurt that comes with it has no place in his world…Until he receives new orders: Rescue female werewolf, Ava Renfroe from a Pack of rogue wolves.
Hell on Heels…
Bartender Ava Renfroe is tired of Alpha males running her life. Being raised as the daughter of a Military General made her want independence more than air—and she has it! Until she’s kidnapped. Damon Trahan, her alpha male rescuer and bossy pain-in-the-ass, is exactly the kind of man she doesn’t want, but try telling that to her libido. His brooding good looks are panty-dropping hot. Too bad he’s bat-shit crazy and thinks he’s a werewolf. Worse, he claims she’s a werewolf too. But when Damon shifts in front of her, she begins to doubt everything she’s known to be true.
Hell to pay…
On the run from the rogues, Ava and Damon can’t ignore the red hot passion between them. But Damon knows it can’t last. Will he sacrifice everything he’s ever known to have the one thing he’s never meant to have? Or will the war between the Packs destroy them before love is given a chance?
When John Barnes taught his daughter, Ellie, to ride, little did he know how she would take to the job of a cowgirl. Her love of the countryside around her home takes her to areas where she sees injustice and unfairness to the small Indian tribe whose land borders their own homestead.
Asking questions about why these people are being deprived of land which can sustain their lifestyle, what Ellie has no way of knowing is how these Indians will become a part of her life. Follow the adventure as John Barnes, his daughter and their hired hands attempt to take their cattle to market, unaware of what awaits them in the darkness of their voyage.
In the early 1900s, Montana saw a great deal of disputes between Indian tribes and the settlers. Will John Barnes be able to come to terms with having Indians as neighbours and will Ellie’s questions be answered by action?
Western: Relentless Part 2
The Kootenai tribe that had settled in this part of Montana was well accepted by the people of Coloma in Montana. In fact, the government had insisted on Indians taking on American family names, worried about the question of land ownership.
That worked in their favour when John Barnes decided to enrol one of the Indians into the Wild West show which was making its debut in their community. His daughter, Ellie, had dreamed of one day riding in such an event, though for the time being was happy to observe. Would this Indian, known for his horsemanship, take away the huge purse being offered?
Would he fail? Ellie and her family follow the events with excitement as the whole town joins in cheering on an obvious winner. There’s sadness, there’s a certain hostility to be found within the pages of this story, though above all else, one finds an element more precious that existed in that town of settlers – hope for the future fuelled by the lessons learned from the past.
