Crown of Roses is a high fantasy novel set in the world of Atulau. It follows the point of view of four women: Cerise, Verre, Blanca, and Aura. It is in its final editing stages and will be published sometime in 2019.
Have you ever heard Red Riding Hood howl at the moon?
When Cerise, Verre, Blanca, and Aura are forced to complete a near impossible task, it seems as if their loved ones’ lives are as good as over.
Or seen Cinderella kill a man with just a shard of glass?
And despite meeting a dragon, internal disputes, and the fact that they’re all most likely going to die, the young women grow close. Too close.
Snow White has vanquished more with her poisoned breath than her beauty.
For secrets will come to light that have the power to change everything. There is a traitor in their midst, one who could potentially save or destroy them.
And Sleeping Beauty? She will bring slumber with but a touch of her hand.
Crown of Thorns is the second and final installment of the Rose’s War Duology. It continues the journey as war is about to begin, one that will test our protagonists past their limits. It is still being written and will hopefully be published as well sometime in 2020. Spoiler warning: If you haven’t read Crown of Roses, you might not want to read the description for Crown of Thorns.
“Once upon a time, four young women failed.”
Cerise, Verre, and Aura are running for their lives, separated by unforeseen, tragic events.
“Once upon a time, four young women started a war they could not win.”
With Cerise and Blanca gone, Verre, Baen, and Aura must find a way to wage a war against a being who has defied even time itself.
“Once upon a time, four young women almost succeeded.”
Time is running out, and the safety of all is at stake. This is their last chance to complete a new task—to finally destroy the slippers.
“And so they almost lived happily ever after…”
Faction: Uprising was my first “real” novel. The first draft is complete, but it needs a lot of work. Still, it has a special place in my heart and I hope to make it publishing-worthy someday.
What would you risk for freedom?
Ember has it all. Intelligence, a coveted job, a high rank in the system. According to the communities, she is one of the elite.
But the communities aren’t the perfect utopia, and Ember isn’t the perfect citizen.
When the laws of the communities cross her new-found morals, Ember must make a choice. Will she give up her freedom for her reputation? Or will she risk it all for a life she’s never had?
Freedom seems within grasp, but she has no idea the price she will pay for it.
Of Shadows and Sorrows is the first novel in the Cursed Chronicles. These stories have taken a seat as I’ve been focused on publishing Crown of Roses, but I plan on getting back to them eventually. You can find the first few chapters on Wattpad here.
To rise or fall,
To die or live.
Of shadows and sorrows,
This gift I give.
The mark of Shadows is a powerful gift, but also a deadly curse. Those who wield its power will forever be hated, despised for the mark they bear.
Tyra must learn to control this gift if she is to fulfill a prophecy from ancient times, one created by the goddess of Time herself.
For the sky must fall, and the Chosen must rise.
