Release Date: June 16th, 2017

Be careful what you wish for.

After moving from Vancouver to isolated Hazelton, BC, high school senior Rachel Barnes hopes she’ll finally find closure and a sense of direction after tragedy has torn her family apart. When she and her friends discover the old spirit box her grandmother gave her, they see it as a chance to wish their troubles away. But the Great Spirits—deer, crow, bear, and the mythical wendigo—give away nothing for free. 

So instead of worrying about fitting in and finding a boyfriend, Rachel finds herself in a race to control the malevolent spirit who’s taken up residence in Mason Allen, who she fears and craves in equal measure. What began as a harmless game forces Rachel to confront her past—and offers her a future she never imagined.

Step into a reality that is not as it seems in Book 1 of the Harmless series.

What inspired you to write this book?
A whole list of things inspired me to write this book. Where do I start?

When I was six months pregnant with my first child, my husband and I moved to a new city were we didn’t know a soul. I’d left my job as an event planner and he started a new business. It was the perfect time to rethink where I wanted my next career move to go.

The idea for this story came to me in bit and pieces. Like building blocks, it started out simple. I knew I wanted to tell a story about a box that granted wishes. On top of that I added my main character, Rachel, my ‘broken from the inside out’, hero. She grounded my story into something more relatable; everyone has their own inner turmoil. From there, I started to give my fiction real details; Kermode bears, Canadian Indigenous lore, places, and more characters with everyday problems like you and me.

This story and its characters became my passion, and so did writing. I wrote it not only as an outlet for my creativity, but as a way to bring a little magic into a world that could use more storytellers.

What can we expect from you in the future?
Many things! Starting this September I’m going to be very busy promoting my novel Harmless. With the help of my publicist, I have an upcoming book launch, radio interviews and much more. I also plan on buckling down and finishing the Sequel to Harmless.

Those wendigo are especially tight-fisted, I hear.
