Iris Brave isn’t as courageous as her name suggests. That’s about to change.

Iris doesn’t take risks. Heights make her dizzy and she prefers to swim in the shallow end… with nose plugs.

On a summer visit to her grandpa’s farm, a mysterious stranger shadows Iris, leaving her cryptic messages. When this outsider turns out be a phantom from her family’s past, Iris sheds her timid ways to uncover the truth and protect the family she loves.

Along the way Iris discovers family secrets and enigmatic figures that lead her to question everything she’s ever thought was real.


Born and raised in farm country, Ali B now lives in San Diego with her husband, two kids, and a small herd of wily dachshunds. Books give her peace. Writing gives her life. Teaching gives her joy.

Iris Brave is her first novel and the first book in the Soul Jumpers series.
