New Release | The Spirits of Six Minstrel Run

A ghostly thriller novel – out now! – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MY8GDHC

A move to the small town of Spring Falls, New York is the perfect cure for Mia Gartner’s horrid commute. However, her new home isn’t quite empty.

She adored working in fine art restoration, but a two-hour ride each way got old fast. When her husband found a house for sale at a suspiciously low price, they jumped at it. Mia expected chemical contamination, a fixer-upper, or termites, so when the problem turned out to be persistent rumors of haunting, she set aside her worries. Adam hoped the place would propel his parapsychology hobby into a career.

Upon first sight, the innocuous suburban house filled Mia with dread. Adam had long maintained she had a psychic gift, but if she believed him, that would mean something terrible and dark once happened there.

Soon after their arrival, unexplained events prove the rumors are more than wild stories. A childlike spirit attaches itself to Mia, seeming harmless and so very lonely.

Alas, she fears the ghost may not be as innocent as it seems.

New Release | The Cursed Crown

Greetings!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of The Cursed Crown, Eldritch Heart book 2! (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MJV12P1/) An LGBT YA high fantasy novel.

The Cursed Crown is also available at select non-Amazon retailers: https://books2read.com/u/bPZ6oJ


In the wake of a twenty-year war, the people of Lucernia struggle to believe their former enemies aren’t demon-loving savages. However, that’s easy compared to the more alarming change: accepting their nation now has two queens.

Many citizens in a land devoted to the God of Purity view the love between Kitlyn and Oona as unnatural, but the young women have earned guarded acceptance in the wake of their heroic deeds. Alas, unrest stirs in the shadows. Worse, Oona thinks the Talomir family line is cursed. All who have worn the crown before her have met with untimely deaths.

Much work lies ahead for the new queens in helping the kingdom recover from a conflict older than its rulers. The people are restless and hurting, trust in the crown is tenuous, and the king of Evermoor demands reparations. That two women should love each other may be the last little piece to hurl the nation into rebellion.

Mysterious forces attacking towns close to the border with Evermoor stoke tensions even further, threatening a relapse to war. Their crowns not even warm, Kitlyn and Oona set off to find the source of the raids and stabilize the nation… hoping to stay ahead of an ancient curse.

Cover Reveal | Evergreen

Greetings, all!

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for my upcoming YA post-apocalyptic drama, Evergreen. Cover art by Alexandria Thompson. I’m expecting a release date near the end of the month or early Jan.


Harper Cody used to worry about the SATs or a getting a new laptop for Christmas… but now, she only wants to keep her little sister alive.

At 5:59 a.m. early in September, life as she knew it came to an end with a nuclear flash ninety miles away in Colorado Springs. For two months, her family sheltered in the basement of their home, surviving on whatever canned goods Dad could scavenge. Passing evacuees told of a safe haven in the mountains, but her father refused to leave. He thought their home was safe… until a gang of looters kicked in the door.

Four years ago at thirteen, Harper won trophies for competition shooting, but killing a man pointing a gun at her is nothing like nailing targets at a range. Hesitation cost her parents’ lives. With no other options, she grabbed her little sister and ran away from the only home she’d ever known into a world she no longer recognized.

The promise of safety in Evergreen gives her hope, but unless the girl voted sweetest in her class can find the nerve to kill, Harper—and her kid sister—are as good as dead.

New Release | The Phantom Oracle

The Vampire Innocent series continues with book 5 – The Phantom Oracle (out now!)


Sarah Wright doesn’t think something as minor as death should get in the way of her future.

With the worst summer of her life behind her, it’s time to start focusing on her education. An immortal vampire—even if she is still new at it—pursuing a degree may or may not be a waste of time, but it at least it’s a way to keep up an illusion of sanity.

Soon after classes start, a mysterious presence trapped at the school attaches itself to Sarah, and her hopes for a normal college year evaporate. Sensing a lost soul in need, she decides to help. Unfortunately, this particular lost soul belongs to an ancient sect of mystics who aren’t at all happy about letting them go.

Worse, they aren’t beholden to Aurelie’s decree. Protecting her parents and siblings from the ‘supernatural crap’ falls entirely on Sarah’s shoulders. One wrong move and her worst nightmare will come true: losing the only thing she can’t un-live without—her family.


 

New Release | Harbinger

Greetings, all!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of the fifth book in the Division Zero series: Harbinger!


Lieutenant Kirsten Wren has encountered Harbingers before—shadowy entities that claim ghosts with dark souls—but they don’t usually follow her home.

At long last, life is somewhere approaching happy. Her adopted son has put his past behind him and she’s even finally trusted herself enough to start a romantic relationship. Best of all, no corporations or demonic creatures have tried to kill her in a whole month.

Dead gang members start turning up, victims of murders with ritualistic overtones. Division 1 files them away as low priority due to their policy of letting the street trash clean itself up. However, when additional killings occur with obvious supernatural causes, Kirsten officially takes jurisdiction.

In the midst of her investigation, a Harbinger attaches itself to her. The chilling ramifications of that become clear once she discovers the area’s most feared gang has developed a working relationship with the Abyss. If she doesn’t act fast, all of West City will become a hellscape.
