The lands of Moura and Parenadra have seen dangerous times before, but always had the dragon riders to defend the justice of the world. But one rider turned to darkness, and slowly the people who once faithfully looked to the skies in times of trouble began to doubt the loyalty of riders. Now as the evil queen known only as Amora rises to control the world, with the dragon riders exiled from the people who once loved them and living in hiding, there is no one to defend when armies sweep Moura. But hope is found when the riders are called again by their brethren to return, and a new king is found to a once-powerful nation all but lost. And hope is found in an unlikely king who once dreamed of riding the skies on a dragon of his very own. When his wish comes true, Daniel Sage and his dragon Leafwing (with a fiery attitude despite an inability to create fire) set off on a quest to defend their world from certain doom. Along the way they befriend nymphs, battle giant birds, and learn that you must become who you were always meant to be-- even if its the last person you want to. But darkness lies before Daniel. His parents die, he must leave behind his sister, and he must face the terrible truth-- that Amora holds a shocking connection to him.

A locked room. A dark threat. A place of poisonous lies. Germany, 1784. Daniel Clode cannot say whether or not he killed the woman. They were found together in a locked room, dressed for the Carnival. But what of the strange madness he feels, and how did she drown on dry land? Harriet Westerman knows Daniel is not a murderer; her sister would not have married such a man. She and the reclusive anatomist Gabriel Crowther must travel to the Duke of Maulberg's Court to save him from the silken, venal plotting of the castle, and from the axeman's steel. But their journey across Europe brings them to an alien and capricious land, full of lies and shadows, where no one can be trusted.

This story is about a female born and raised in the Chicago ghetto near the Cabrini Houses. Her accidental admittance into the psychiatric ward causes her such traumatic stress that she mentally revisits and relives some of the horrible things that she had been subjected to in her childhood and young adulthood. Her relationship with her mother is strained and makes the main character of Mommy Dearest seem like Glenda the Good Witch in the Wizard of Oz. Her life is full of drugs and domestic violence. The continuance of education is what brings this young woman out of despair and depression into a world of tolerance and forgiveness.

Through interviews with young women, educators and people in the criminal justice system, Beyond Bad Girls exposes the formal and informal systems of socio-cultural control imposed on girls.
