Hikaru and her one true love Norihiko defy their families and kitsune (fox fairy) tradition by getting married.
However, an evil magician kills Norihiko, steals his soul, then re-forges it into a sword.
Hikaru seeks the sword, determined to break the curse and bring back her one true love, no matter the cost to herself or her family.
Set in Heian era Japan and composed of three novellas: The Making, The Breaking, and The Reforging.
Of Myst and Folly – available March 24th, 2015.
A post-apocalyptic fairy tale.
Bombs destroyed all the major cities of the world almost two centuries ago.
The bombs opened rifts. Magic and myst flowed into the world.
Electronic devices no longer work. Only simple mechanical devices. Man learned to farm again, in curving rows that myst can’t gather in.
For decades, the myst has gained strength slowly. Destroyed people, fields, villages a little at a time. Because the myst is scattered, unfocused.
When the myst finds its champion, will man survive?
Inspired by the short story, The Last Dancing Leaves.
Tainted Waters – available May 2015.
The sequel to Poisoned Pearls.
