The Dragon Soul Quartet
In the distant mountains of the Mirror, exiled skyriders fly dragons in the old Way, merged in flesh, blood, and bone. Twenty years past, they fought for the freedom of the valley’s dragons…and lost.
Thus begins the epic four-book adventure that stretches from the quaint village of Taran Leigh and the mountains of the Mirror to the Anghard Archipelago in the western sea. Welcome to a world where wealth and power rule, fear is the weapon of choice, and cruelty is the cost of a pocket of gold. It’s a world that forces a choice—indifference, complicity, or defiance.
The dragons of land and sea, souls of grace and beauty, hang in the balance. Will they descend into the howling violence of terror and pain inflicted upon them by their tormentors? Or will they fly free, the creatures they were born to be? With each book, the stakes rise and far more than the dragons’ soul lies at risk.

Myths of the Mirror – Book 1 of the Dragon Soul Quartet
In the mountains of the Mirror, exiled skyriders fly dragons in the old Way, merged in flesh, blood, and bone. They fought for the freedom of the valley’s dragons…and lost. Now, imprisoned in the stone lair, the captive dragons beat webbed wings and thrash serpentine tails. The creatures howl, tormented, their fury matched only by their despair.
Treasa, the daughter of exiles, seeks the secrets of a shattered past and a father she never knew. She dreams with the lair’s dragons, torn by visions of unbound flight and a desperate longing to be free. The lair’s riders sense the dragons’ increasing savagery. Yet, Conall longs to grasp their power, subdue them, and soar. With a heart encased in iron, he will master the weapons of compliance—at the cost of the woman he loves.
Then, a curved talon rends flesh and dragon scale, rattling against white ribs. Blood falls like rain and alliances shift. The battle for the dragon’s soul begins again.
Read as a stand-alone or as the first in the series.

The Melding of Aeris
Generations ago, the realms fell to fire. The Burn–the only means of destroying a lush land so manipulated by man that while its crops sated hunger, it poisoned the flesh. Now the wilderness slowly reseeds, hard lessons learned through starvation, displacement, and poverty. What remains for nature’s tinkerers?
Pathway, the coveted distillation that enables the grafting of skin across species. The Sahls of the Sea Barrows meld spiral horns to their skulls, reptilian scale to their chests. They embed the razor teeth of sea beasts in the bones of their forearms and replace the flesh on their backs with the pelts of wolves. Women of wealth adorn their bodies with serpent skin as elegant as black lace, tufted tails, plumed feathers, and silken fur, their own skin cast off, no longer desirable.
Then they bear children … creatures like Aeris, a man who longs to be human. He will discover there is only one way to acquire human skin.

The Sorcerer’s Garden
Recently fired and residing with her sweetly overbearing mother, Madlyn needs a job—bad. In a moment of desperation, she accepts a part-time position reading at the bedside of adventurer and amateur writer Cody Lofton. A near-drowning accident left the young man in a vegetative state, and his chances of recovery wane with each passing day.
Cody’s older brother, Dustin, and eccentric grandmother aren’t prepared to give up on the youngest son of Portland, Oregon’s royalty.
Dustin’s a personable guy, bordering on naïve, and overwhelmed by familial corporate duties and cutthroat partners. Grandmother Lillian’s a meddler with an eye for the esoteric, dabbling in Dustin’s life and dealing out wisdom like a card shark. One innocent conversation at a time, she sucks Madlyn into the Lofton story, dubbing her the princess and bestowing on her the responsibility of both grandsons’ destinies.
And all Madlyn wanted was a simple reading job.
Uninspired by her self-imposed stack of literary selections, Madlyn opts for Cody’s work-in-progress. Fantasy isn’t her favorite, but with only four chapters completed, reading The Sorcerer’s Garden should be no sweat, right?
Little does she realize, the story will begin writing itself and, by the hand of destiny, become her own.
