Biography:   Friend me on Facebook! I'm lonely.

My YA fantasy, THE WIND READER, was published by Inspired Quill in October of 2018. You can buy it at Amazon or directly from Inspired Quill, which would help support a small press that is also a social enterprise, returning part of their profits to literacy projects. Here's the link to IQ, where you can also read the first chapter.

My YA fantasy, DEEP AS A TOMB, was published by Loose Leaves Publishing in October 2016. You can read the first chapter for free on Jena Baxter's Bookworms to see if the book is for you ( It's available on Amazon, B&N, and Indiebound. Here's the Amazon link:

FINDERS KEEPERS, my first novel, a middle grade fantasy, was published by Zharmae Press in September, 2015. In my head, the main character (Cade)and his older brother (Roth) are kid versions of Eilian and Ithilden.

Before I took to writing so-called "original" fiction, I spent a good long time writing young Legolas stories, so it might be helpful if I gave a list of those that I've written in chronological order of Legolas's age in them. I give his age in both Elf and roughly equivalent human years.

Additionally, Nilmandra (my beta) has written three stories using my characters as very welcome gifts. They're called "First Celebrations" (in which Thranduil meets his future wife), "Eilian's Begetting Day," and "Ithilden's Begetting Day." In exchange, I wrote a similar gift story for her called "Celuwen's Begetting Day," which takes place when Celuwen, Eilian, and Gelmir are all the human equivalent of 14. I also have another story called "The Decision," with Thranduil as the main character, and one called "A Moment of Joy," with Eilian and Ithilden in the years before Legolas came along. These single-chapter stories are all on Stories of Arda. Finally, Bodkin wrote a wonderful story called "In the West," in which she takes all my characters to Valinor and shows the return of many of the dead ones from the Halls of Waiting. Thank goodness!
