Benevolent

There she goes…

Charming and addictive, Benevolent is sure to keep you turning the pages from one humanitarian mishap to another. Beginning with a roadkill-burying nine-year-old and a gas-leak explosion, it follows Gaby LeFevre, a suburban, Midwestern firecraker, as she traverses the 80s and 90s with characteristic intensity and a penchant for disaster. Meanwhile, the large cast of compelling characters entertains and  the Northwhyth legends draw you into their magic. You’ll leave the book wondering what is and what isn’t. Thought-provoking and honest, entertaining and magical. A great debut leaving the reader waiting for the next book.

Benevolent was published by Owl and Zebra Press in February, 2013.

The Night of One Hundred Thieves

Who will be the last thief standing?

The Queen was dying. The kingdom was at peace. And the ring was about to be buried forever in the royal crypt. But its aura of power and its promise of riches and its stories of magic were destined to inspire a night never to forget, The Night of One Hundred Thieves.

From an unlikely cast of farmers, travelers, townspeople, courtiers and royals, One Hundred unravels a tale of forty people all both recognizable and special in their own way, as they barrel toward their future together and an inevitable clash of motives. From Farah the Barren to Nora the Girl Widow, from Tarquis the Secret Pirate to Lykus the Cupbearer, their stories will make you laugh, cry, remember, and hope for their future and the future of magic.

Nominated for the 2016 Maly Wade Wellman Award in speculative fiction.

Called by one early reviewer: The Lord of the Rings meets Oceans 11, with a frosting of Love, Actually.

Eighteen years later, a bitter young woman running away from her problems stalls out on the hidden borders of the dusty, legendary town. She wanders in looking for a hiding place but ends up finding so much more.

The Journey of Clement Fancywater

Sometimes fantasies are for real.

Clement is living with his parents, working as an administrative assistant by day, and playing video games all by himself by night, when he is orphaned at age thirty. One cardboard box and backpack later, he winds up on a park bench where a bizarre two-faced man points him down a rabbit hole toward the Hollow Earth. Is Clement the hero the world needs to save it from a power so insidious the Uplanders don’t yet know of its approach? Will he find his way through a colorful, subterrestrial world to confront the Wizard Queen? Or is this all some kind of a joke?

Look for it in 2016.
