Books by Wells

"On Second Thought"

Released in March 2004, Wells' first novel is a romantic comedy/mystery set in the fictional New Mexico town of Alamitos. Walt Stewart, a recent college graduate, moves to Alamitos in an attempt to run away from his problems. Once there, he gets involved with the quirky politics and conspiracies of small-town life, gets wrapped up in a seemingly-supernatural mystery, and falls in love.

Wells has stated that parts of the novel were loosely based on his experiences living in Grants, New Mexico. [See [ "On Second Thought" Questions] Accessed November 29 2006]

"Wake Me When It's Over"

Released in January 2005, this novel is a blend of humor and suspense. Eric Hopkins and Rebekah Hughes, BYU students, accidentally get involved with an economic terrorist organization.

"The Counterfeit"

Released in July 2006, "The Counterfeit" is the sequel to "Wake Me When It's Over", concluding the story of Eric and Rebekah. This novel deals with both the economic terrorists mentioned in the earlier book, as well as a competing secret organization run by Rebekah's father.

Originally, a third book was planned in this series, but Wells has stated that there are no current plans for another sequel. [See [ "Wake Me When It's Over" Questions] Accessed November 29 2006]
