Current Projects:

Of Rust and Gold (low fantasy/romance): A story about piracy and politics with feuding royals, a gay prince, and the slight superstition of magic. The first book in The Saints' Song trilogy

Of Vipers and Saints (low fantasy/romance): The second book in the TSS trilogy with more drama, more angst, more politics, and more gay.

Of Blood and Stone (low fantasy/romance): The last book in the TSS trilogy with triple the angst and politics, but sadly only half the gay (I'm kidding.)

Calling Bird: A short story taking place in the same world of ORG where a bored nobleman meets a strange man.

Walking in Shadows (dark fantasy/romance/mystery): A popular college student is killed and a professor's secret circle and dirty secrets come to light. Involves eldritch love interests, monsters killing monsters, and lots of LGBT college students.

A Taste of Sugar: (historical fiction/low fantasy/ romance) Young man finds himself the sole suspect of murder and, fueled by angst and bad decisions, runs away and gets wooed by a magician/criminal who wants to kiss him and commit robbery.
