Rheda -18k – high fantasy – complete

Status: subbing

Rheda’s father is dead. Murdered or not, her only protection is no more. When she’s forced into a betrothal with the huntsman – a man her entire village fears – she flees to the shadow of the forest.  Deep within, she finds the wearg, a creature half-man half-wolf, but easier to trust than her own kind. With the huntsman at her heels trusting the wearg may be her only option – but it may cost her humanity.

A Once & Future Knight — SciFi 

Status: revising/expanding

Back when there was a war on, Gawain was a soldier. Now he’s Arthur’s chief of security on the planet Camelot, center of the Pendragon system. His job mostly entails following Arthur around to mind-numbingly boring political meetings.

At least until an eight-foot-tall green pixie shows up in the middle of a feast, demanding that the king exchange blows with him.

Right.

Now Gawain’s shoot-first-ask-questions-later has landed him – and Arthur – in hot water and it’s going to take some unexpected (and unexpectedly hot) allies to unmask a conspiracy and make sure the system doesn’t fall to pieces. Again.

Piece of cake.

Not.

In Secret Kept high fantasy 

Status: Draft complete, ~67k

Alodia Ramsay is caught between two worlds – the music of her mother’s mountains and the sedate life of her father’s flatlands. At her mother’s death, Alodia’s father forbids all music and betroths her to a man she’s never met. The journey to her intended pulls Alodia away from her mountains, and the melody takes an unexpected turn when Alodia is abandoned in the middle of a forest haunted by cargasts, sad spirits. Here Alodia discovers the castle of the Lord Steward Rinan de Rathais. Though supposed dead Rinan is very much alive – and hell-bent on holding Alodia prisoner. As the days pass and Alodia’s attempts to escape come to nothing, she begins to wonder if the Steward is as much a captive as she is – for the castle holds secrets, both bloody and ancient, and even once they escape to the mountains Alodia may have to make a pact with a demon to gain their freedom.

The Midnight Hour — Victoriana horror/SF

Status: in progress

An outcast of the saintly Port Salus upper class, Raoul Daviau has reinvented himself across the river in the stinking boardwalks of the Fulcrum slums. Even still, he remains haunted by his past: the innocent blood on his hands, the wife who left him, the back-stabbing brother Raoul schemes against.

When a member of his gang goes missing, Raoul’s life in the Fulcrum begins to crumble. When the man’s mutilated body is discovered floating in a canal, and then Raoul is attacked by creatures that are most certainly not human, there is no doubt that evil plagues the Fulcrum.

It will take an uneasy alliance with his estranged wife in order to destroy his brother and keep out of the monsters’ reach — unless the monster inside of Raoul wins first.
