The Rose Shield Tetralogy

Catling’s Bane (Book I)

In the tiers of Ellegeance, the elite Influencers’ Guild holds the power to manipulate emotions. Love and fear, pain and pleasure, healing and death mark the extremes of their sway, but it’s the subtle blends that hook their victims’ hearts. They hide behind oaths of loyalty and rule the world.

A child born in the grim warrens beneath the city, Catling rues the rose birthmark encircling her eye. Yet, it grants her the ability to disrupt the influencers’ sway. Established methods of civil control disintegrate before her. She’s a weapon desired by those who reign and those who rebel.

To the Influencer’s Guild, she’s an aberration, a threat. They order her death and thus the betrayals begin. One woman protects and trains her, plotting to use her shield to further imperial goals. No longer a helpless child, Catling has other plans. As chaos shakes the foundations of order and rule, will she become the realm’s savior? Or its executioner?

The Rose Shield Tetralogy – a blend of science fiction and fantasy.

Welcome to a world of three moons, a sentient landscape, rivers of light, and tier cities that rise from the swamps like otherworld flowers. A planet of waterdragons, where humans are the aliens living among three-fingered natives with spotted skin. Where a half-blood converses with the fog and the goddess plans her final reckoning.

Follow Catling’s journey as she grows from childhood into the deadly force that shapes the future. She is the realm’s shield, an influencer, assassin, healer, mother, and avenger. And all she wants is to go home.

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.

Driven by flames from the Mirror, Conall and the skyriders descend on Taran Leigh, complicating Earlin’s life. Malice flows with the governors as they escape down the silver river to the sea.

Across the sea, new forces are at play. A master of fear, Phelan plots, skimmers raid ports, and the wealthy hoard.

As swiftly as a storm abrades the sea, the threads of his dream unravel. Skimmers seize their prize, exposing his deception.

The Melding of Aeris

TMOA EBOOKGenerations 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.

While the righteous pray for salvation, Rimma prepares for battle, fueled by rage and blinded by vengeance. Her twin, Angel, bound to her by unbreakable magic, seeks light in the darkness, hope in the future, and love in a broken world.

The Sorcerer’s Garden

51G+fs9eWtL._UY250_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.

        • I have, but I take advantage of Amazon’s kdp promotional tools which means being exclusive to Amazon. I realize that I may miss some readers, but through my promotions I reach thousands that I wouldn’t otherwise, so it’s worth it to me. Most reading devices (like my ipad and phone) have free kindle apps. Do you read primarily in epub format?

            I see, that makes sense. Amazon is great, and I would probably be using it, but I moved to a country that doesn’t receive Amazon shipping services, nor can you easily find a Kindle reader here. I use an eReader that supports Adobe Digital Editions, so I buy most books from Google Play Books.

            However, I do have an android phone, so I have access to the Kindle app if need be. Do you have a particular book that you would recommend to a new reader? I don’t have a preference between fantasy and sci-fi.

            • That’s so sweet of you of ask. There’s a range depending on your tastes. Catling’s Bane starts the newest series. Sorcerer’s Garden takes place in the present day and is a bit of a wild ride, and The Bone Wall is my darkest by far. They give you a good variety to choose from. I hope you enjoy. 😀

                    I’ve read up to chapter four of Catling’s Bane so far, and I am enjoying it. Each chapter feels like the perfect little chunk to read in between work and other things. I’m also quite intrigued about the world, and interested in finding out how everything comes together and what happens to Catling and her “special mark.”

                    I’ve also found the amazon app to be really nice. I like how it can highlight words on the screen so I don’t have to look them up if I don’t know them. All in all, it is more enjoyable to read on the phone than I thought it would be.

    All your books above are now displayed on my bookshelf. I’ve started reading ‘The Melding of Aeris’ and I am already caught in that fantasy world. My cousin helped me out as I don’t have a credit card (by choice). I actually waited for it to arrive in Malaysia but no such luck. I am lucky as these are to be my Christmas and Birthday gifts and the best part I get to read them before Christmas.

  5. I am having the BEST TIME reading The Sorcerer’s Garden. I don’t normally read fantasy. This one is so accessible to me, probably because it is grounded in the ‘real’ world as it then rolls into the ‘other’ world. I’ll review it on Amazon when I’m finished. Thanks for entertaining me so thoroughly!

    As a “young” (but not young) writer, I came to this website wondering why, when I have never been in a violent environment, my writing was often violent. Much of it takes place in, or is affected by, WW1, so that is self-explanatory to a point. However, much of my novel takes place far from the war, and thus I was concerned. This was most helpful, and I thank you for sharing your soul, not just your books.

    • Thank you for stopping by. I have many of the same questions as you. Why are my books violent when this hasn’t been a persistent factor in my life. Yet we live in a world surrounding by violence. We can’t help but be affected, wonder about the human tendency toward aggression, and what our responsibility is in standing up to it. I wish you luck with your book and hope the telling of your tale was a worthwhile experience, literally and personally. Blessings.
