My Latest Books


More than a decade has now passed since war ravished the land. The dragons are extinct, and the people who once stood beside them are but scattered ash, or so they say... 


But, as Ava Cern begins to learn, not all may be as it seems including her own identity as a humble peasant. Marked with a strange symbol on her wrist among other oddities, she begins to question the stories of her childhood. Are the dragons really gone? Is this really her home? 


Though a stranger to foreign lands, she will soon find herself on an epic adventure, crossing into worlds she once thought existed only in make-believe tales.
