A Diamond in my Pocket Amazon description: Calli Courtnae, age 16, unexpectedly breaks the 100-meter world record
at a high school track meet and is whisked off to Montana to train for
Olympic tryouts. Upon arriving, however, she finds something totally
unexpected. Her fellow athletes are secretive, mysterious, paranoid,
uncommonly beautiful — and endowed with the same gift of superhuman
speed that she now exhibits. The truth, Calli learns, is that she has
been brought to Montana to join an elite clan of Runners who train to
undertake highly secret missions for the benefit of superhuman kids
everywhere. When three Runners from her compound are kidnapped by
a clan of evil terrorists who can kill with their thoughts, Calli is
assigned to the team that must deliver a rare magic diamond to the
terrorists in exchange for the hostages. Calli is just beginning to
accept her new world when it is turned upside-down by a mysterious woman
who secretly gives Calli the real diamond, while the team leader is
given a decoy. Almost immediately the magic diamond in Calli’s pocket
unleashes within her a startling range of supernatural powers and
mind-reading abilities. Using her new-found powers, Calli exposes
traitors among her team, discovers that the hottest-looking guy on the
team believes she is his soul-mate, has visions of her companions’ tragic
futures, and learns that she alone holds the power to change their
futures. While Calli knows that her powers derive from the secret
diamond in her pocket, her companions do not, and Calli dreads the
fast-approaching day when they will discover the truth.

In Feb 2013, Thomas Hall, Ph.D., a retired Professor of English joined my team as editor. The books now have good flow and proper grammar. (English wasn't my favorite subject in school. Thanks for your help, Dr. Hall!) The major plot points were unaltered, no pun intended. Take a break from your regular life and jump head first into an exciting world of powers and abilities that will leave you wondering what is really right or wrong, good or bad, black or white --or some concoction of black and white resulting in several varying shades. Where perspective depends on what you've been taught compared to what you allow yourself to see.
