DARKNESS RISING (IN PROGRESS)
YA DARK FANTASY
In the sunless, pitted world of Naraka, a strange plague threatens to turn every woman alive into a mindless killer. To maintain stability, three Narakan kingdoms make a pact: their three heiresses will be cryogenically frozen, in the hope of a future cure.
But when the super-spy Nso, the hyperactive Rhafte, and the scholarly Ostholygh wake up, they find the world in anarchy, and bounties on their heads.
Joining forces with a prince and a traveling artificer, they work to uncover the otherworldly truth behind Naraka’s fall. And when they are offered sanctuary by a coalition of men who believe their wombs are the key to salvation, the offer seems logical to the pragmatic Ostholygh and the preconditioned Rhafte. But rather than a last-ditch attempt to save humanity, Nso sees a world that has given up. And giving up, to Nso, has never been an option.
THE GODDESS CANDIDATE (ON QUERY)
YA CONTEMPORARY LGBTQ FANTASY
The day eleven Signposts fell out of the sky, Devon’s main concern was hiding makeup from her father. But when one of these otherworldly objects appears outside her high school, Devon is one of the first ones to read the words that surround it:
Walk through fire
and become God.
And while Devon is determined NOT to go anywhere near the flaming Sign, her friend Corey – and half the modern world – thinks it’s worth severe burns to have a chance to be God. Even worse, her religious father sees the flame-protected Sign as an opportunity to prove his faith… and his devotion could be the one thing that burns Devon’s world to the ground.
THE TOWER WITH NO WALLS (PENDING REVISION)
A life lived for others… or a life lived for lies?
K-1 is one of only twelve survivors of the night-sickness, a plague which has left her undeveloped and hairless. Rejected by society, K-1 has lived her entire life waiting on upper-class masters, trading samples of her blood for medicine that keeps her alive . She always believed her blood would help find a cure… until the day she hears the voice in her head.
The voice belongs to a prisoner of her masters – and when he suggests that her altruistic life may not be what it seems, K-1 must choose between her medicine and her freedom. But K-1’s keepers are watchful, and in stepping outside the lines, she attracts the attention of a blood-loving tyrant and the killing force that is pulling his strings….
THE PHOENIX CYCLE (SERIES)
ADULT AND YA FANTASY SERIES
The Phoenix Cycle has an experimental series structure; like Terry Pratchett’s Discworld and popular anime universes like Fate Stay Night and Sword Art Online, it will be segmented into single or multi-book “arcs” which will stand alone but also be interconnected. Each arc is marked by a near-complete change of characters, setting, and story. This is intended to keep the reader energized and engaged, while building an underlying, universe-spanning arc that will only be unraveled in the very last book.
