Will she follow the pack…or destroy them?


A dead mother. A violent father. A missing brother.


When Mia’s father is murdered, it’s her estranged uncle that comes to the rescue, but what he offers her in return for his help could be worse than the life she is leaving behind.


Taken to Hood Academy, a unique school deep in the forest, she discovers friendships, love, and the courage to stand on her own. 


Mia takes the oath that seals her future as a werewolf hunter, but not everyone wants Mia to succeed.


Screams in the night. Secret rooms. Hidden letters. Mia becomes an important piece in a game she doesn’t want to play. 


Loyalty, friendships, and family bonds are tested as Mia discovers her true identity, but will the truth set her free, or will it destroy her?

Awaken in the darkness of a foreign land; it prowls the forest with yellow eyes and sharp fangs. It thirsts for blood and strays upon a mysterious camp. It watches them carefully and waits for a false move before striking swiftly and without detection. One by one they are taken against their will. Its strength is menacing and mutilates without remorse. Its rage is powered by an indestructible force not seen in centuries. The lifeless body moves through darkness like the animal that it seems to be. But it is no animal... it is a young child born from the purest blood of vampirism, but raised by an enemy species long since lost. The child finds himself in a human world war and engages curiously with an axis of evil known historically as the German Nazis. In a quest to find a mythological and holy relic stolen generations ago by enemies of darkness that will fight if interfered with their dominance of the world. And as the boys hunger intensifies, so do the efforts of the Nazi watch towers. By doubling guards in each corners of the camp they are certain the boy-creature awaits them. They can only wait and pray for the only line of defense... for the sun to rise quickly. The German train unloads hundreds of people at the Nazi labor camp. One of the new arrivals is a mysterious man from Sweden falsely imprisoned. He is beaten and dragged into the same concentration camp where the boy vampire is feasting. His capture does not go unnoticed and quickly uncovers the truth about the labor camp and what it means to wear a yellow star on his clothing. In an epic battle, Jakobson as hes called, races to escape from the evil that dwells within the camp. He encounters gruesome acts of terror against humanity, including a supernatural event. One night after the witching hour, Jakobson watches the Nazis lure a trap for the boy, but their plan foils and Jakobson instead rescues the child thus avoiding captivity. He befriends the boy and helps him understand the values of being a human being. Together facing the deathly consequences of war, an ultimate sacrifice must be fulfilled, if they can stay alive long enough to give the first order, Let the rebellion begin... death to the Nazis!

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

Should being the key word.

Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?

“Exciting and well-conceived” – Kirkus

All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.

But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives... as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.

"A fun romp for Twilight fans."- School Library Journal.

Perfect for readers who love young adult books, contemporary fantasy, fairy tales, gamma guys, satire/comedy, paranormal romance, fairies, magic users, shapeshifters, and coming of age stories.
