I do what I want.

A BRIEF GLIMPSE OF ME...

I am a fantasy author, designer, podcaster, and all around silly person. I write two different fantasy book series: The Raashan Series and the Lost Beacon Chronicles. I'm also a proud author with 21 Chieftans Press, a woman owned and operated New York indie publisher.

 

The Raashan Series is a classic epic fantasy series that begins with the world of Raashan in a state of post apocalyptic chaos in To Save a World. The characters are not only trying to find themselves in a world in turmoil, but when they encounter a strange wizard, they learn of a disquieting prophecy in which they bear a responsibility that none are ready to accept.

 

Spare the Swallow is the origin story of the Lost Beacon Chronicles, which is a historical fantasy series that follows the unwilling immortal, Lucretia, as she wanders the earth in search of her purpose. This series also delves into psychological themes as the different books in the series illustrate Lucretia's emotional journey through the stages of grief and how they effect her. 

 

The podcast I Do What I Want! is basically just me talking through my personal writing journey, occasionally chatting with friends about books, sharing short stories, and my life as an author in general. It's funny. You should listen.

 

I also collaborate with fellow fantasy author, Elara Dunn, on the podcast, The Banshee Energy Show! Wackiness ensues. It's a WAIL of a good time!

 

I design most of my own book covers and page layouts, as well as occasionally designing covers for fellow authors, like the award winning poetry book Behind Her City Eyes by Sarah Erin

Also, I love cheese and romantic subplots.

Raashan Volume III, Tear in the World,
is coming October 2024!

Are you ready for the next book in the Raashan Series?
