I am eyeballing my 5 year anniversary for becoming a regularly published author!
It's been a wild ride, but I've got 20+ publications under my belt, with more pending over the next two years, thanks to my #13In24Challenge. This is my personal challenge to publish 13 works (6 short stories, 7 novellas & novels) in less than 24 months (starting in Aug '18). I have already had published or have been notified of the publication of three works!

I can't wait to work closely with you, my fans and patrons, to write more of what you love. I will be asking for feedback, ideas, opinions, and much more... plus, I'll be throwing swag and short writings out once in a while. The wild ride will continue and be all the better with you along. Join me now!

Works in Progress:

Cassie has to decide whether she can trust the people she loves with her secret, because the Crystal Wise may be the only way to fix the problem. #13In24Challenge

In the M.A.G.U.S. series, the Magecrafters Alliance Guild of the United States (M.A.G.U.S.) and its sister group, the Magecrafters Alliance Guild of Europe (M.A.G.E.), work to find the lost Seelie magecrafter bloodlines, and to find and Bond each Fountain to a family line of Caretakers.

Proserpine III is a sci-fantasy centered around a dystopian future with enslaved psychics called Crafters. Crafters serve humanity with their Craft - Subhuman. Psychic. Leashed.

The Monster of Bobcat Ridge is a PNR thriller. Mountain lion shifter and police chief, Karen, runs the police department with efficiency that goes above and beyond the needs of the small town. She makes sure petty crime is dealt with... and that the shifters that live there and pass through behave themselves. When shifters start coming up dead, she realizes there is a killer targeting the paranormals. She has to work with way-too-hot FBI agent, Hunter Paterson, without giving away the secret. Falling in love doesn't help. And neither does her family getting targeted next. #13In24Challenge

The Second Princess is a YA fantasy that tells of the curse of Tasia's family. As the second princess born of her generation, she has a specific destiny that will only come to pass if she undergoes the ritual to find her mated soul. But she has a different destiny in mind, and she puts the destinies of all her sisters and her kingdom at risk to find a way to break the curse. Tasia is young and naive, and she has to learn that in the real world, things aren't always what they seem.

Paper Dragons is a Mid-grade fantasy that follows Lee, a Chinese-American boy who is accepted into a special boarding school for Bù Lóng, the Guild of the Cloth Dragons, where apprentices are trained in the skills of ancient Chinese art... and the lost magics that go with them. Lee discovers that he has great skill for painting, and bringing to life, Chinese dragons, which may help him save the school from those who think that past should stay in the past.

Lost Queen of Alfeari is a YA fantasy. Kaila, the lost heir to the kingdom of Alfeari, has lived with the jungle tribes of the Kong'sha for her entire life, learning to survive and practicing the secret ways of Spirit-Talking and Skin-Slipping. Now, Kaila has been ceremonially disowned by her tribe and thrust into the unfamiliar world of nobility and politics, where someone is trying to kill her. Kaila doesn't understand politics, but the law of the jungle is kill or be killed, and that, she can do.

Triggered is a paranormal thriller. A woman awakes in a hospital, wrapped in bandages and without any memory. She was found in the rubble of a recent bombing in Syria.
She appears Syrian, but speaks perfect English with an American accent. The only thing found on her is a set of dog-tags that do not belong to her. The dog-tags seem to be real, but no one with the name is listed in the military rosters.

Woke is a paranormal dystopian thriller. A group of people is awakened from cryosleep due to the company going out of business. Each learns that they have been abandoned by intention or circumstance. Each holds the key to a secret better left alone. But the company has a secret, too: long-term cryosleep can cause neuro-rearrangement often resulting in the development of psychic abilities.

Psy-Hacker is a dark sci-fi drama about the dangers of the wetware subculture in the 22nd Century. When K gets a wetware implant to monitor his life-saving medical device, he has to learn to navigate the world of those who are perma-networked. Being networked means your mind can be infiltrated - whether by consent with psychologists, or not, by hackers. Some people have better firewalls, but psionics is the key to being both impenetrable AND an unstoppable hacker. 
K never knew he was psychic, but he is now being hunted down by hackers, politicians, and even the police after spyware tagged him as being a potential uber-hacker. Now he must navigate the digital world and the worst of real life before someone unplugs him.
