Devya's Children (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: The kidnapping changes everything …

Twelve-year-old Jillian Blairington never thought she was particularly special.

She was wrong. She’s a Dream Shaper.

The scientists responsible for the genetic modifications kidnap her in order to teach Jillian how to use her Gift. But she isn’t alone. They also have her babysitter, Danielle Matheson, snatched to keep her in line.

They also have a task for her.

If Jillian can’t master her Gift quickly, Danielle might only be the first victim of many.

Interview with the Author:
Q: What makes the Devya’s Children series special?
A: At the heart, this series is about family and friendship as well as the ethical questions surrounding genetic engineering. It’s been likened to the Orphan Black TV show. I like to think of it as a more family-friendly take on those themes. The premise is that a brilliant scientist and his team created several genetically altered children who have special Gifts, such as telepathy, healing, and dream shaping.

The journal/letters style is not unique to this series, but I believe ultimately it suits my need to get in these people’s heads. I’ve worked very hard to fill the books with relatable characters. Some of them happen to have superpowers, but as Jillian points out, everybody has gifts, if not Gifts. It’s just a matter of finding out what those gifts are and how they can be applied for the good of the world.

Q: What order should I read them in?
A: I suggest the traditional order of:
- Ashlynn’s Dreams
- Nadia’s Tears
- Malia’s Miracles
- Varick’s Quest
… before jumping into the prequel—The Dark Side of Science—or the Ashlynn’s Dreams Shorts.

The prequel and the short stories can certainly be read as standalones, but they may be more enjoyable once the reader’s already familiar with some of the characters.

Q: Where does this book fit in the series? What theme(s) make it special?
A: Ashlynn’s Dreams is where it all started. This is definitely the place where you want to jump in and get connected. If I had to pick a few central themes, I’d say kidnapping, family, and genetic engineering.

Why kidnapping? Well, it’s awful and scary and just plain wrong, but in this case, there’s a specific reason the scientists do it.

How does family fit in? What makes a family? The truth is that family’s a complicated thing. For example, here, Jillian has a mother, a father, a step-father, and much more. It’s been fun to explore those connections.

Science fiction’s all about the what-ifs. We’re actually just getting into the advancements in real world genetics where some of these things could be in the near future. That’s going to open a whole can of ethical worms. Fiction’s a wonderful playground for delving into scientific ethics.

Q: Why should readers check out this series?
A: Because Devya’s Children will introduce you to a charming cast of characters dealing with some big issues. Right or wrong, the children exist, so now what? If you have the power to change the world, should you? What are the personal cost and consequences of shaping the world? These are all questions explored by the series.

Q: Can the reader get the whole series at once?
A: Readers can grab books 1-3 in a combination.

Luminether (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:
Over 50 5-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads

" to enjoy it if you like reading about magic, wizards, and mythological animals...fantastically engrossing adventure...captures the imagination." - Amazon and Goodreads Reviewers

Behind the world we all know, there lies another, more exotic realm. Ancient and magical, this is a place of vanished gods, sorcery and advanced technology, monsters and demigod heroes. It is home to five races resembling humans--each with its own amazing set of abilities. Soon all five will be at war with a sixth, much darker, breed of warrior. Guided by an evil force thought to have been vanquished ten thousand years ago, this enemy is strong, hateful, and hellbent on enslaving all who agree to convert, and destroying all who do not.

It will take a teenaged "Earthborn" boy named Milo, and his twin sister Emma, to save the people of a world they have never even stepped foot in. Armed with a destructive magical ability he can barely control, Milo will be forced to leave his suburban life behind and begin his dangerous journey. But his demigod heritage, along with Emma's disturbing prophetic visions, will call the attention of a wealthy, powerful necromancer who has been hunting their family for decades, and who is close to finishing a weapon of mass destruction powered by sacrificing innocent people.

As they struggle to adapt to their new lives, Milo and Emma will befriend a group of Earthborn outcasts like them, including a boy from the streets of Baltimore, Maryland who can punch through stone and lift a schoolbus with his bare hands; a Native American girl who can summon elemental creatures from other dimensions; a "Feral" girl who can change into any animal in the blink of an eye; and a mysterious magician who holds the key to a time-warping device that will forever change the course of history.

A Jaspar Windisle Adventure (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Unsure if your building is haunted by spirits or termites? Want to know the secret ingredient behind grandma’s famous apple pie? Then call Jaspar Windisle and let him use his 300 years of experience channeling the dead to tell you whether the answer is bourbon, termites, or “fly, you fools.” While he usually shouts out that last answer while already running, everything changes when a very, very old friend calls in a favor and asks him to come work for Jesticorps on a mall project in Towenridge, cryptid capital of the Northwest.

Jesticorps, the only company crazy enough to want to bring the convenience and reasonable prices of a mall to a town where the works of H.P. Lovecraft are taught in history class, the town council policy on evil cults involves a shotgun and a shovel, and most of the residents appear to be either part of an evil clone army or are all just one very busy practical joker with a lot of wigs.

Will Jaspar find the key to unlock the interdimensional portal under the mall? Can he put down the occult goldfish uprising? Do any of the "outside law enforcement agents" turning up in town actually work for the government? Answers to all of these questions and more in Beneath the Mall of Madness!
