A funny, fast-moving, action-packed series of young adult coming-of-age mystery/thrillers that take place in the near future.

The “NorthWatch” series takes place in Liberty, N.Y., Washinton D.C., Maine, and Boston from October 31, 2036, to July 4, 2037. Fourteen-year-old Cassandra Watson, her family, and a cadre of friends travel through life discoveries, challenges, and lethal threats at WatTechPrep, the White House, Bangor Maine, Mount Hope Cemetery, and NorthWatch, a Maine island owned by the Watsons. During the story, Cass, who always strives to move forward, abandons her wish to buy the United States presidency and dedicates herself to becoming the next Stephen King, “a higher calling.”
