Upcoming Books

Unexpected Heroes series:

Seed of War (Unexpected Heroes, book 2) (September 2019)

Saving the world from feuding gods made eighteen-year-old Ludik miss his wedding. Now his second chance is here, and nothing will stop him from marrying his sweetheart this time.

Except maybe a dead body.

In a mad race to hunt a misguided witness, Ludik must confront a fierce wolf, follow the trail through hostile territory, and escape his own execution.

Even with the help of his outkindred friends–-a gilled translator, a fire mage, and the winged messenger of the Gods–- Ludik might not be able to prevent war from igniting between the shapeshifting kindreds.

Danger lurks among the trees, and if he can’t solve the clues, more than his marriage is on the line.

(Now available in Advance Reader Copy, and publication coming late September.)


Wave of Dreams (Unexpected Heroes, book 3) (coming 2020)

For sixteen-year-old Nia, the best part of becoming an adult is the party. Even if she has to hold it on land for the sake of her gill-less friends, it’s still an opportunity to flirt with all the lovely boys.

But the best birthday gift is something totally unexpected— an old treasure map and the news that her dad, missing sixteen years, might still be alive.

With her friends and a cute suitor in tow, Nia follows her long-lost father’s trail across the ocean waves to a supposedly cursed island. Will she find adventure, answers, and even love?

Maybe. Unless the curse is real.

Spark of Intrigue (Unexpected Heroes, book 4) (upcoming)

The return of the fifth god last year changed divine politics, to some people’s delight and others’ dismay. Since then, sixteen-year-old Zefra and her friends have been working with the gods to reorganize world relationships.

Unhappy with the new spirit of universal cooperation, a secret cult of rebels from every country surfaces to rework the world in its own vision. The faction intends to get Zefra and her friends permanently out of the way first, and then the gods will be the next to fall.

Now Zefra must lead her friends and shapeshifting spies to uncover and combat the cult. If they fail, the world will sink into domination and slavery.
