Can you say “prolific”? Bestseller Toby Neal is releasing two books in two months.
And now she’s striking out in a new direction with her first young adult novel:
Fire Beach: Lei Crime #8
Hawaii is cane fires, lush jungles, and feuds that won’t die until everyone’s dead.
Detective Lei Texeira stalks the shroud killer on her own terms as Michael Stevens finds himself engulfed in the flames of a case with tangled consequences. In this eighth of the bestselling Lei Crime Series, Lei and Stevens find out just how far hate and love will go.
“Toby Neal’s Lei Crime Series is a wonderful achievement in consistency and style, introducing us to a rich landscape filled with memorable characters. Eight books in, I’m already anxiously waiting for number nine!”
—Detective (Ret) David Swinson, author of A Detailed Man

Island Fire, YA dystopian adventure with a fantasy twist—Coming Dec. 22
In the very near future, on the tiny island of Lanai, teens from very different worlds must find a way to survive when technology is destroyed.
Bea and Sam, Hawaiian kids isolated by a paranoid, alcoholic father, are thrown together with orphaned big-city pickpocket Nick when a disaster fries all technology. Aided by a mysterious `aumakua dragon that may or may not be Bea’s imaginary friend, the kids face fire, plane crashes, gangs, pit bulls, thieves, sharks, hunger, thirst and abuse in a coming-of-age that explores a post-technology world where only the strong and connected survive.
“Deep, fast-paced, filled with action, suspense, and heart, this little book about small islands is huge on the inside!”
—B. Morrison, middle school teacher
