A daemon princess, super-tech & secrets that might get you killed?!

Geeky artist Patrick Connolly just woke in the last place he ever thought he’d find himself—in bed with his classmate Nualla. However, as the drunken haze starts to wear off, he soon learns she’s no longer his dream girl, she’s his wife!

But if he thinks his wildest dreams have just been granted, he’s dead wrong. Because one night with her might literally mean his death. You see, Nualla’s not just any girl, she’s a Kalodaemon princess. A secret race of gazelle-horned beings who’ve lived alongside us for thousands of years. Hidden just beyond the range of human perception. And Patrick’s troubles won’t stop there, because Nualla’s royal daemon family, tech-genius best friend, and their secret world will be coming along for the ride.

Patrick might have thought navigating the social circles of their elite San Francisco private school was hard enough. But if he isn’t careful, the intricate laws and perils of the Kalodaemon Empire might just get him killed.

Book 3
Almost dying on his wedding day might have been the easy part.

For eighteen years, geeky artist Patrick Centrina thought he was an average human guy—gods was he ever wrong. Now he has two blue horns growing out of his skull, and his former rival-in-love is the older brother he never knew he had.

But if Patrick thinks narrowly escaping death was the hardest part of becoming a Neodaemon, he’s in for a rude awakening. Because his new-found abilities are already starting to leak through his human facade, and it’s only a matter of time before someone notices. If Patrick wants to keep the most treasured parts of his old life—like his human best friend—he’ll have to become an expert liar, and quick.

But with his third wedding attempt fast approaching, accidentally outing himself as a daemon may be the least of his worries. Because the dark secrets of his past are starting to seep through the creaks, and this time they might just be lethal.

The Storm behind Your Eyes is the second novel in the fast-paced Marked Ones Trilogy. If you like spunky heroines, hot bishounen guys & thrilling urban fantasy with a science twist, then you’ll love this gripping New Adult Fantasy series.

Perfect for fans of Shadowhunters, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood & Dragon's Gift: The Huntress.

Book 4
Is there really any way to ask forgiveness for trying to end the life of the person you love?

Nearly everything about Patrick Galathea’s life has been a lie orchestrated by the Kakodemoss. The same Kakodaemon terrorist group that murdered his parents, turned him into an unwitting sleeper assassin, and performed untold experiments on him for fifteen years. Experiments that have left him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself in the wake of the deadly Embassy attacks.

But to have any chance of making amends for the unthinkable act he committed against his wife, he’ll first have to figure out where the fabrication ends, and his true self begins. And accept that he was forged  into a deadly weapon designed to kill…and likely already has.

The road to redemption is fraught with even more perilous secrets than Patrick has faced yet. Because to unravel the final dark mysteries of his past, Patrick will have to place his trust in the most questionable person of all—his fabricated self.

The Other Side of Truth is the final novel in the fast-paced Marked Ones Trilogy. If you like spunky heroines, hot bishounen guys & thrilling urban fantasy with a science twist, then you’ll love this gripping New Adult Fantasy series.

Book 1

Book 1 of 9 in the Bride of the Harvest Wolf series

Reckless wild-child Sienna Kendrick has longed for one thing since she was fourteen—the attention of Thomas Zurent, the dashingly handsome son of the town’s wealthiest founding family. And on the night of the New Grand Cycle festival when this plucky weaver’s daughter turns seventeen she gets exactly what she desires. But is Thomas’ attention truly what Sienna wants? Or is she concealing a yearning within her heart for something darker—something taboo—something forbidden?

The hour has come, the clock has struck fourteen, and per ancient accord, the thirty-sixth bride of the Harvest Wolf is about to be selected. But will she be his beloved…or his dinner?

*** Includes special bonus features: maps & location illustrations, pronunciation guide, story world glossary, illustrated story world calendar! ***

Bride of the Harvest Wolf: Episode One is approximately 27,000 words long and is the first of 9 novellas in this imaginative, coming of age romance series where shapeshifter deities, magic, and mythology collide.

Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Bride of the Harvest Wolf series special?
A - Well for one, the series is a young adult shifter bride romance featuring a strong female protagonist, and an Indigenous (Native) male protagonist who is also a shapeshifter wolf deity. It’s a be-careful-what-you-wish-for story about two characters who both long to leave their homes and explore the greater world, and who suffer disastrous consequences as a result of their desires. But mostly this shapeshifter series is different because it combines fairytales such as Beauty and the Beast, and Red Riding Hood, with mythology and folk tales from around the world, and weaves them into a narrative that is both familiar and yet part of a completely new fantasy world.

Q - So, why should readers give this series a try?
A - If you’re looking for something a bit different with diverse protagonists, original mythology and fantasy world building, and a romantic adventure, than this young adult coming of age fantasy is the shifter romance series you’ve been looking for.

And thanks for reading!

The Spirit Guardians have just granted reckless wild-child Sienna Kendrick the secret desire of her heart—an adventure outside the town walls of Zurent. There’s just one catch; they’ve also selected her as the thirty-sixth bride of the Harvest Wolf. A role some regard as an honor, and others a death sentence. Now this plucky hunter’s daughter will have to undertake a journey into the woods, where nightmares she has spent cycles trying to forget prowl the dark shadows.

The selection has been made, the journey through the woods has begun, but will Sienna even make it to the Palace of Eternal Autumn alive?
