When Death Comes

Status: Writing First Draft

Synopsis:

Aspen is going to die. It was known from birth, the moment her parents saw the red dots encircling her neck. The day she turns twenty one she will be sacrificed for the good of her people. Her, and all the other young women they call the Death Women. All sacrifices to their god and government.

Until then, their lives are ones of ease. Nothing is beyond their reach, the governments gives them everything they could ever want. Even diseases are healed with a prick of a needle. Everyone is happy, no one escapes.

Until one of her friends end up dead. Before her birthday.

Covered up as a suicide, Aspen is convinced it was murder. She and an unlikely friend dive deep into a sea of secrets and backstabbing to find who is targeting the Death Women, and why. But can she find the murderer before her twenty first birthday?

The Aliens Gift

Status: Writing First Draft

Synopsis:

The beings from other planets have come. They have brought gifts. Power for the strong. Power that comes with a price. And that price is war.

In a world where the gifted can create anything with their minds it is easy to be fooled by what isn’t real. Yet dividing the truth from the lie is Teagans specialty. That is, until he meets Mickey, a girl who can construct whole worlds with her mind. Worlds that she lives in, ignoring the painful world outside. A world that is fractured into sides and loyalties. Humans against aliens, gifted against non-gifted, gifted against gifted. Teagan chose his side long ago. But how do you convince the girl who lives within the world of her own making that the world outside needs what she can give?

Valai

Status: In the midst of a major rewrite.

Synopsis:

A night filled with fire and blood is the night where one dynasty ends, and another dynasty begins. Three years ago Terrence narrowly escaped the same death that claimed his parents. Now, trapped in the mountains with the men that have stayed loyal to the crown, he seeks a way to topple the usurper and reclaim his throne. Plans have been made, swords have been sharpened, and alliances are sought. But it all tumbles to the ground when a wide eyed girl steps into his camp.

The impossible becomes real as magic washes over her like a stream. Leaving her unharmed and the rest of the world upside down. Now more than ever Terrence’s goal seems within reach. But not even the wizard at his side realizes the sacrifices they will have to make to touch it.

The Kings War

Status: Writing First Draft

Synopsis:

The King has died. While the country mourns the loss of the greatest king they have ever known, his children plot.

Titus is not the oldest, but he firmly believes that he should be the next to sit on the throne. After all, the man who has the most knowledge should be the one to lead. His siblings think otherwise.

The war of Kings and Queens begins. A war of spies and intrigue. Of smiles and betrayal. Where you must guard your tongue lest it be parted from you.

All encouraged by a man sometimes there, and sometimes out of sight. A man the siblings trust, and man who will be their doom. 

The Race Against the Forest

Status: Writing First Draft. On Hold.

The last test. Two friends race against each other and the sun to become the Keeper of the secrets of their city. But when one stumbles into a trap, a woman that even the Keeper does not know of rescues him.

Now both friends are united in the search for the one who rescued the one, and captured the heart of the other. But what begins as a simple search quickly becomes more dangerous than either could have known as secrets long buried come to the surface, and long hidden evils stir in their prisons.

The Tale of the Mountain
