IAMOS, S.C.D. 8378: An alien world is dying, and its only hope may lie with a boy from another time.
Two worlds, one destiny.
Life on Mars isn't all it's cracked up to be when you're Isaak Contreras. Ever since his dad disappeared two years ago, Isaak's been struggling to keep up in school, and he never seems to be able to live up to his mom's high expectations. But everything changes when he finds an ancient relic among his missing father's possessions.
An artifact from an ancient civilization... that appears to have originated on Mars, not Earth.
The artifact makes Isaak a target of both the Martian colonial government and a crazed scientist with a vendetta. It seems to be the answer to all of Isaak's questions. But he could never have expected that the search for his dad could lead him to a door to another time.
A door to an alien world—and a girl on the other side who believes that Isaak may hold the key to saving both their worlds.
That is, if they can survive long enough to use it...

A Sci-fi Retelling of Shakespeare's The Tempest: "If that doesn’t hook you in, I don’t know what will." - BookRiot
This short sci-fi spin on Cinderella was originally published in Magic at Midnight: A YA Fairy Tale Anthology.
Laura Clark thought she was just your average college freshman—until the day she saw a cheerleader on a skateboard get into a superhuman brawl with a lightning-wielding stranger in a trenchcoat. And the weirdest thing of all? Nobody else saw it happen. Nobody, that is, except the beautiful but standoffish Shailene, one of the mysterious (and possibly super-powered) cheerleaders from Laura’s rival school, Bayview University.
When girls start disappearing all over the City, Laura suddenly realizes that she may have seen more than she should. And if she wants to keep from disappearing herself, she needs to find some answers. But though Laura can’t shake the feeling that they’re somehow connected, Shailene is more than a little reluctant to share her secrets. With strange, bug-like creatures and a sinister man in a dark coat stalking her every step, Laura will have to uncover the truth fast if she wants to survive.
The fate of the planet just might hang in the balance.

Isaak has returned from Iamos, but life hasn’t exactly gone back to normal. In what felt like a month to him, two years passed in the world he left behind—and now that he’s home, he’s not sure if he knows what home is anymore. Mars has become a world of riots and police states, with GSAF doing everything in their power to clamp down on the burgeoning rebellion started by Isaak’s once-best friend, Henry Sandhu. It doesn’t take long before he realizes that maybe coming back to Mars wasn’t such a good idea. But unless they can find a way to get to the time postern—currently guarded by heavily-armed GSAF agents—Isaak is stuck in the future… and so is Nadin.
Nadin thought that the future would hold her answers, but everything changed the moment they passed through the door. All she wants now is to return to Iamos and make sure that her partner, Ceilos, is safe. But once her identity as a native Martian gets out, she finds herself caught in a political struggle she doesn’t understand, with both factions trying to win her over to their side. And when GSAF learns that Nadin holds the key to deciphering the mysterious System, they’ll stop at nothing to keep her on Mars—permanently.
Everything changed when Isaak disappeared. Henry, Tamara and Scylla know GSAF had something to do with it—they just need to prove it. The only problem is, crossing GSAF can get a person killed. Especially if Joseph Condor has anything to say about it...
Set during the events of FOURTH WORLD, Book One of the Iamos Trilogy, DIFFERENT WORLDS is an action-packed dystopian that tells the story of the people left behind.

'An Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!'
- Abraham Lincoln
