The Popular Nirvana Series (YA, Dystopian)
Best work of fiction about virtual reality that I have ever read.
-Rhetta Akamatsu, Blog Critics Magazine
Kenders (Larissa) is the most devoted and tenacious heroine I have read in a long time… If you enjoy futuristic what-if books like The Hunger Games or The Matrix, give this series a read.
– Vickie, book reviewer
Intriguing meld of virtual reality, species extinction, and corporate evil.

NIRVANA (Book 1)
When the real world is emptied of all that you love, how can you keep yourself from dependence on the virtual?
Larissa Kenders lives in a world where the real and the virtual intermingle daily. After the supposed death of her soulmate, Andrew, Larissa is able to find solace by escaping to Nirvana, a virtual world where anything is possible – even visits with Andrew. Although Larissa is told that these meetings are not real, she cannot shake her suspicion that Andrew is indeed alive. When she begins an investigation of Hexagon, the very institution that she has been taught to trust, Larissa uncovers much more than she ever expected and places herself in serious danger. Her biggest challenge, however, remains determining what is real – and what is virtual.
