Thomas's Muse

As an undergrad, Sammie Singleton became the muse of an artist she didn’t know. But the connection vanished, and now Sammie drowns in the colorless drudgery of corporate America. Lost and abandoned, Sammie longs for the scent of paints, the vibrancy of reds, the soft stroking of a feather brush…

Her world flashes alive the moment she meets Thomas Quidell. Sammie quickly realizes the brilliant and talented Tom is her long-lost artist—and the man she's been fantasizing about all these years. Tom’s touch awakens needs Sammie thought long dead. When he offers a lifeline out of her soul-killing life, Sammie's doubts pull her under. Is she strong enough to find her way back to love?

Games of Fate
book one of the Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon series

How do you avoid becoming a monster of chaos when your mind is chaos itself?

Rysa Torres can't get a handle on the world, no matter how she tries. But when monsters activate a part of her she didn't know she had, Rysa becomes the Fate at the center of an epic battle against a terrifying future--and a world consumed by fire.

With the threat of a burning future distorting Rysa's Fate abilities, she sees only two options: End her own life, or watch Ladon, the only man to see beyond her attention issues and love her for who she is, die. Will they accept the only future they see, or will they find the strength to break the bonds of fate?

Enter the Fate – Fire – Shifter – Dragon universe where Urban Fantasy meets Science Fiction: Dragons, immortal warriors, family, love… and science.

NOTE: The Second Edition of Games of Fate contains new interior editing and formatting.


79 AD: Rome presses outward. Vesuvius smokes. Ladon exacts a terrible vengeance for an unthinkable act—and sets in motion the unavoidable collision of four people:

Two Fates bound by the rigidity of the past and the arrogance of the future.
One Shifter with a gift too vile to use.
And a man and a dragon who must save them from the mountain’s smoldering anger—and the weight of their souls’ ashes.

Conpuslio, a novella set in the Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon universe, expands the story of Ladon and Dragon before they meet Rysa, the heroine of Games of Fate. Set during the infamous night Vesuvius destroys Pompeii, Conpulsio asks two questions: Who is bound? Who is compelled?

NOTE: The subscriber-only edition of Conpulsio includes the short story Cinder to Dust.
