Now out!

Love? Yes, please. Magic? Maybe. Wings with powers? Totally! Better than superheroes!

I write anything with a love story: epic fantasies about fire-sellers and healers, dystopias with winged humans wielding unexpected powers, stories set in walled cities or under caged skies, about people ruled by controlling governments or rigid monarchs. As long as there’s a love story somewhere, whether fun, fuzzy, dark, or destructive, I write it.

Fun fact: a crap-ton of my main male love interests are virgins! Um…

Apparently completely sub-consciously, I must have decided I despised the trope of ‘I am a man and therefore I must screw like a rabbit on aphrodisiacs – whoo ha!’, and I made most of my main guys not stick their shtick everywhere, just where they’re sure they want it. I know, shtick isn’t the right word there, but you get the point. Erm… no pun intended.

Not so fun fact: I’m a sequel tease

So. I have been told I have this nasty habit of ending books with open endings which make it seem as if there are sequels even if there aren’t any sequels. If this happens to you, just let me know and I’ll see if I can write a sequel for you πŸ˜‰

Hairy chests, next line down, please

Alright, so I was traumatized at a tender age by reading romance novels where men pranced around who sported not self-respecting chests, but ‘manly pelts’, and I was like, ‘No, thank you! I’ll take my chests hairless, please.’ Therefore, none of the love interests in my stories have hairy chests (or beards!), so if you like hairy chests, feel free to imagine the men with those pelts of hair all you like, just don’t tell me. πŸ™‚

For anyone who purchased Under a Caged Sky before April 7th, 2016, I’ve added a few sentences for more closure (at least of Avin’s story) and added a bit more info to the afterword. See here if you’re interested in seeing those additional bits.
