Fueled by chocolate and moonlight, I seek to bring magic into the world through my stories. Every night I pour my heart and soul into my novels, spinning tales of science fiction and fantasy that sing of friendship and hope.
My publications include Augment, a YA science fiction novel, and several short stories in the JL Anthology series. I am currently working on Upgrade, the sequel to Augment, as well as a gaslamp fantasy series titled Rusted Magic.
My Fairy Tale Retelling
“Solstice Flames” is a short story published in the anthology Of Legend and Lore. I had so much fun writing this mash-up retelling of A Christmas Carol and The Little Match Girl! Told from two POVs, this story follows a miserly mage and a young woman down on her luck through the snowy–and magical–dangers of a Solstice Eve.
Of Legend and Lore is an illustrated collection of eleven fairy tale retellings, some well-known, others obscure. It’s part of the Gold Prize for the Brewing Books Blog Tour. Can’t wait to read my story? Of Legend and Lore is available for Kindle and in paperback.
Peppermint is one of my favorite kinds of teas, so for this Brewing Tour, I’m giving away a box of Celestial Seasonings Peppermint Herbal Tea!
