"I bleed words.
I dream in narrative.
I live in infinite worlds.
I befriend figmental characters.
I wish on stars in other galaxies.
I harvest stories from a brooding muse.
I bloom under moonlight in hushed seclusion.
I am a writer."

Meet a curious, young man whose calling it is to guard the gates of his homeland. As key keeper of Dreamland, Gavin comes across many outsiders referred to by his people as dreamers. Through a variety of bizarre and creative antics, Gavin steers these roaming trespassers away from the borders of his magical world—a world where ogres bowl for their dinner and pirates sail the clouds to plunder diamonds from the night's sky and bubbleberries make a person burp out loud. It is a place where anything imaginable is commonplace. All the while, the young key keeper finds himself increasingly intrigued by stories of the outside world. Snooping about, he is captivated by a dreamer who peaks his interest in the ordinary.

What does a child do when life hurts?    
She dreams up a hero.

In this fictional tale, Annabelle Fancher, a girl of elementary school age, struggles to cope with a cruel, alcoholic father. By means of storybooks and dreaming characters to life from popular fairytales, she manages to create make-believe moments of happiness in the midst of a harsh reality.

School is the only place Annabelle interacts socially, where a few individuals suspecting her circumstances attempt to reach out to the wary girl. But it is an imagined friend whom she turns to repeatedly for comfort and kindness. When his ghostly form appears before her during waking hours - his voice augmenting the hallucination - it becomes a struggle to keep reality and pretend from blurring boundaries. Her choice, it seems, is to succumb to madness, and happily so, or embrace her cruel reality.

The story of a young woman surprised to learn she is the only survivor of royal blood, hence heir to the throne of Harrowbeth and host of an enchanted heirloom known as the dragon's soul.

Book #4 - Eena, The Two Sisters
Book #5 - Eena, The Tempter's Snare
Book #6 - Eena, The Companionship of the Dragon's Soul


"She was young and beautiful and the last living heir to the throne. Why wouldn't two brothers fight to influence her?"

Sevenah Williams lives a quiet farm life with her parents and best friend, Ian. Life is good and predictable until the unexpected yanks her from the only reality she remembers. Forced from home, her tragic and forgotten past is pieced together revealing that Sevenah is in fact heir to the throne of Harrowbeth; she is the last living of royal blood able to don a peculiar heirloom necklace. Given the new name, Eena, she and Ian set off for a new home, dodging nightmarish enemies in the process. All the while great powers granted by the enchanted necklace slowly emerge and develop. 

Eena is assisted by militia sent to retrieve their queen, commanded by the bossy and intimidating Captain Derian. Though Ian and Derian endeavor to protect her, Eena is abducted by a charming, silver-tongued man. She finds herself forced to choose sides in a civil war she hardly understands. Which rival has the power to convince her of his nobleness and gain her ultimate support?

Book #2  


An enemy at their heels, a dragon stone portending the queen's demise, and an armada prepared to battle against all odds in hopes of altering the future.

Eena, the young queen of Harrowbeth, has been saved from the clutches of her enemy, only to fear prophetic nightmares of being captured by Gemdorin again. A red-eyed dragon haunts her dreams frequently, portending her doom within his fortune-telling gaze. It is Derian and Ian's job to keep the beast's grim visions from coming true. 

Joined by their allies, a large and warring race called the Viiduns, Captain Derian and his militia escort their queen across the galaxy toward home. But an unexpected detour takes them to an advanced world where a quirky king might possess the power to rid them of their enemy for good! Is trusting the promise of a stranger a risk worth taking? Perhaps, if Eena's life hangs in the balance. But what if it means she must face her worst nightmare—alone?

Book #3   


    Captain Derian and his crew have successfully returned the young Queen Eena to her home in Harrowbeth. Gemdorin, their enemy of over a decade, has been defeated. The world awaits healing as peace once again settles over the land. Unfortunately for those closest to Eena, this much-deserved rest proves short-lived.

    Deep within Lacsar Forest inside the black walls of Wanyaka Cave, a childhood ghost story becomes reality. A more powerful and enduring enemy lures the young queen to where two immortal sisters await in confines, having been imprisoned there for generations. These evil sisters and their brother, along with a dragon forced to do their bidding, combine efforts to manipulate the young queen into helping them accrue a means of escape. Though Eena tries to refuse her assistance, every move she makes only seems to worsen her predicament. She fears losing Derian's trust, Ian's friendship, and possibly someone's life.

Book #4   


    Queen Eena sees her world crumbling, especially the lives of those she loves most. Affected by a compassionate heart, she tries to console one man who mourns for a lost love while endeavoring to assure another she does indeed plan to marry him.....someday. But emotions are sensitive and doubts strong, especially when encouraged by the lying tongue of an immortal scoundrel. 

    All the while the young queen continues to search for a way to defeat two devious, indestructible sisters who seem capable of manipulating outcomes regardless of Eena's attempts to thwart them. The closer she gets to fulfilling the final demands of these witches, the more it appears only one way exists to save herself and her world—by agreeing to join the enemy. But would that make her a hero or the ultimate traitor?

"What else are friends for but to help you make right what isn't in life?"  
~ Kira, the Mishmorat

Book #6   


"Compassion only plagues those with hearts, much like a field of thorns only troubles those who bleed."  
~ Naradite

Catherine fights every Hallows Eve to protect her village from creatures of the night. She has sworn to avenge the deaths of loved ones, but a witch's curse may prove a stumbling block impossible to overcome.

A thrilling piece of fantasy fiction from the Queen of Werefolk's point of view. It is challenging enough for Duvalla and Kresh to protect their young family in a world of Hallows Eve creatures, but such a feat proves near impossible when a witch bent on vengeance against the werewolves casts a Tarishe curse that manipulates both heart and mind. The fight is not only with the sword but an internal struggle to love the ones Duvalla has sworn under a spell to hate, and hate the one who through evil enchantment manipulates her heart. 

"Anyone who takes the time to be kind is beautiful."
                                             ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
A young man born with unsightly deformities is scorned and shunned. Loneliness is his curse unless he can somehow show the world what it actually means to be beautiful.
