About

Writing has long since been a passion of mine, helping me to explore the world around me as I build worlds of my own. I take pride in creating characters that feel more like old friends, or even rivals, than two dimensional words on a page. I write stories that make people feel something.

With the support of my husband and my family, despite the interference of pets climbing between my hands and the keys, I pour my heart and soul into my books.

Having lived beneath the rule of a vicious dictator all her life, Kiluna is no stranger to hardship. And yet, she holds hope. Her grandmother’s tales of peaceful times, together with whisperings of a magical gem, buoyed her spirits even in the most dire times. Everyone has a breaking point, though, and Kiluna is no different.

After the brutal murder of her grandmother, she can stand it no longer. She sets off, determined to free her people, even if it means venturing through mysterious forests inhabited by outlaws, soon finding that one in particular may be a danger to her heart. But she must go, for only one thing is powerful enough to save her people… The Gem of Meruna.

A new dragon has risen. Impossible, but true.

When the marks of the Soul Bearer burn themselves into Aurisye’s flesh, none can deny what she is. Illegitimate daughter of the hero who died nearly thirty years ago after killing the last dragon. The only person who can truly kill the dragon that terrorizes them, now. But Soul Bearers have always been human, and Aurisye is…not. Part Orc, oppression is her oldest friend.

Yet, her companion is chosen wisely. Now, Rafnor, a tolerant soldier sent by the Human monarchs, must teach her all things combat. But time is limited, and her sarcastic defenses try even his patience.

Amidst political strife with the Elves and all-out war with the Orcs, they must come together to prevent the merciless destruction of all three realms…Even as the Elven royals plot to tear them apart to secure an Elven heir to the Soul Bearer blood.

Brutalized, traumatized, and cast out, Annabelle has nothing for comfort save the darkness festering in her own soul. Nourishing the terrible seed of hatred planted by her attacker, she sets out to cauterize the wound. In the old American west, she ventures from one dirty, dusty town to another, doling out her own brand of justice, armed with nothing but a weaponized parasol.  Unfettered by notions of black and white morality, the piper is coming. It’s time to pay up.

All this, plus tons of unnamed ideas that are still brewing. As you can see, there are a lot of irons in many fires. Genres and themes are flying all over the place. The common thread?

Emotion.

I want my work to make people feel something. As such… I don’t guarantee happy endings. Sometimes, a sad ending is true to the characters and the story itself, and if that’s what the book calls for, that’s what I write.

Prepare yourselves.
