Naomi MacKenzie is a writer and photographer from the Canadian East Coast. She considers herself a Maritimer first and a Canadian second, or so she told the standardized test people in essay form during the eleventh grade. She enjoys vegan baking, walks in the woods and, contrarily, hiding from the sun. _Lodestones_ is her first novel.
On the eve of a new school year, several groups of college students cross paths as they seek out a secret end-of-summer lake party—including Robin and Charlie, two inseparable friends who discover of the course of the twenty-four hours that their relationship is something much deeper than simple friendship.
