New Print Covers

Map From the Legends of Dimmingwood Series

The excellent Jared Blando has created this beautiful map of the fantasy world from the Legends of Dimmingwood and Catalysts of Chaos serieses. Locations to look out for:

* The forest of Dimmingwood and the city of Selbius, from Dimmingwood books 1 & 2 (Magic of Thieves and Betrayal of Thieves).

* The unlucky village of Hammond’s Bend from book 3 (Circle of Thieves) and the Skeltai wilderness/Black Forest from book 4 (Redemption of Thieves).

* There’s also Swiftsfell and the Desert of Vipers, from book 5 (Journey of Thieves).

* And to the very far right, readers of Mistress of Masks (Catalysts of Chaos, book 1) might recognize the Lythnian coast.

Release Day!

Technically it’s only been release day for 55 minutes but that’s good enough. ;) Mistress of Masks is out now, launching the start of my new Catalysts of Chaos series! You can find the book at Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Other formats are available at Smashwords. I hope all my readers enjoy getting to know these new characters and exploring the world of Earth Realm.


An ancient evil has awakened in Earth Realm. The dead are rising, the oracles haven fallen silent, and foul creatures are devastating the baselands. When the dark sorcerer, Rathnakar, escapes his tomb, the First Mother chooses three champions to become the saviors of their time.
The hopeful adherent, Eydis, wants nothing more than to lead a life of solitary devotion within the sheltered walls of a seclusionary. But when her pilgrimage to a sacred grove ends in a vision of the end of the world, she realizes the Mother requires a more dangerous service from her. Seeking the catalysts prophecy says can overcome chaos, she aligns herself with a notorious traitor, Orrick of Kroad, and Geveral, a dryad mage who has yet to tame his powers. Together, can the three unlikely heroes thwart Rathnakar and the wave of darkness threatening to devour their world?

Book 1 ~ Mistress of Masks
Book 2 ~ Betrayer of Blood (Coming late 2014) Correction: Coming late 2015
