Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I've been writing epic fantasy for over twelve years now. 

Writing fantasy has become my passion and a thrilling life adventure. I write what I love, sweeping medieval sagas with a sword-wielding princess, a brilliantly strategic queen, a mysterious archer, a cunning counselor, a seductive priestess and a silver-haired grandmother who wields knitting needles and knives. Lives, loves and crowns, hang in the balance but few mortals understand the rules.

The name of my saga is The Silk & Steel Saga, or SASS, for all the sassy women in my books! SASS is an epic medieval fantasy written in the style of George Martin's Game of Thrones. All 7 books of SASS are published as e-books and print books. The saga is COMPLETE! So there is no need to wait to find out how it all ends!

The first book is The Steel Queen. I'll be posting the opening chapters here on Wattpad. I've also posted the prologues of The Flame Priest and The Skeleton King and The Poison Priestess,The Knight Marshal, The Prince Deceiver, and The Battle Immortal, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th books of the saga. The Assassin's Tear is my collection of short stories, including two signature stories set in my medieval kingdom of Erdhe. All of my books are published as e-books and trade paperbacks and are available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble. Enjoy!

Please read, vote and comment, and fan if you like.

I'll also be posting some tips on writing and publishing fantasy.

I'd love to hear from you. Leave me a comment with a link if you have something you want me to read.

I hope you enjoy my stories! Thanks for stopping by and best of luck to you!
