Breene’s Watermelon Popsicles

Breene (one of my beta readers) joins me in the virtual kitchen today with a tasty frozen treat.  Take it away Breene!


  • 1 pound watermelon cut into small pieces (about 3-4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • Blender or food processor
  • Popsicle molds or small paper cups
  • Knife
  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup or scale
1.  Cut up 1 pound of watermelon into small pieces.  Combine watermelon, honey, and lime juice in blender or food processor and puree.  Pour into molds or paper cups and freeze.

Enjoy a brief glimpse into my new novel, Starter Zone, coming this September. (Breene was a beta reader for this novel!)

Cover reveal coming soon.

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
