I’ve written…well, actually, LOTS of books.
And Then I’ll Catch Fire
In the works presently. A memoir(ish) of living with anxiety and occasional depression, and generally being the odd sort of person who decides to start writing creatively for a living. I’ll let you know when it’s out!
The Dragon Corps
Sarcasm? Check. Planet-hopping shenanigans? Check. Romance? Double check.
As humanity spread across the depths of the galaxy, beyond large-scale troop movements and the reach of their governments, the Human Alliance created the Dragon Corps. The best of the best, the Dragons are deadly, unstoppable, and entirely unmatched. Unfortunately, like all humans, they have an uncanny ability to fall for precisely the wrong person at the absolute worst time…

Light & Shadow
The series that started it all!
It has been only two generations since Arthur Warden seized the throne of Heddred from the Conradines, and now the crown rests on the head of Garad, sickly and weak. Shadows gather: legacies of the centuries-long rivalries for power, old betrayals, the endless plots of the courtiers, and the murmur of rebellion in the southern provinces…
Catwin, plucked from her life at the edge of the Kingdom, is thrust abruptly into the world of the Court when she is chosen by the Duke of Voltur to be a Shadow—spy, shield, and blade—to his niece, the Lady Miriel DeVere. The Duke’s ruthlessness is legendary, and he will stop at nothing to become the power behind the throne, using Miriel as a pawn to catch Garad’s heart.
But the Duke’s carefully-laid plans are only a piece of the intrigue of the court, and greater forces than Catwin can imagine are massed against her, determined to eliminate Miriel and impose a new order of their own. If Catwin and Miriel are to survive, they must learn quickly who to trust, and when to turn their skills against the very people who have trained them…

Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter Finalist, 2014
“We have come to a moment when what we know as goodness and mercy will not be enough to guide us any longer. Your loved ones may not ever understand what you did here today, but they need you to stand for all that is good in humanity.”
With these words, war hero Benito Sandoval launched one of the most brutal massacres in human history, attacking the undefended colony of Guan-Yu and slaughtering forty thousand of the civilians he had sworn his life to protect. When humanity’s fleet arrives, too late to stop the attack, all that is left is ruins—and the cryptic words of a lone alien survivor, warning humanity of the Henth, a race that has devoured everything in its path.
Hunted to the brink of extinction, the Aireni were fleeing across the galaxy when they stumbled onto a living weapon with speed, strength, and brutal cleverness: a fragment of humanity on a long-forgotten planet. In desperation, the Aireni set about honing humanity, breeding and modifying the colonists into a weapon that might be the last hope for life in the galaxy.
As the human fleet searches the stars for the Henth, they leave the ruined colony behind them. But the colonists have not been destroyed. They have hidden. They have survived. And they know who their enemies are.
It is only a matter of time before they return from their exodus to the destroyed city, to find the technology the Aireni left behind. It is only a matter of time before that technology carries them into the galaxy. And then, as the last remnants of the surviving races face down the final advance of the Henth, it is up to humanity to convince a long-lost weapon to come to its aid…

But when an ancient enemy lays waste to the oasis, Mahalia is the only one left to protect her family. As a mysterious wasting sickness preys on her tribe and whispers begin, calling the Yeshuhain demon-touched heretics, Mahalia must choose whether to follow her heart…or become the protector of her people that she was born to be.

What I’m working on right now:
“You never did fight for the empire, Marco – you fought for what it could be.”
Fifteen years ago, Marco Caetani defeated the invading Magog tribes, becoming one of the most feared men in the world – a battlemage without match, a man who could wield fire that burned flesh and metal alike. Son and heir to the second most powerful man in the malichon, lover to the malich’s heir, he was a man to be courted, to be emulated, to be feared. Ten years ago, he left all of it behind and disappeared into the wilds of the malichon, swearing he would never come back.
And he was a man of his word – until he stumbled across the scouts of an invading army of lich. Now, reluctantly dragged back into the world of the court, he must find out is powerful to wield an army of the dead…and who might strike down the woman and empire he left, but never stopped loving.
