Hi everyone! Ever since I was a child, I wanted to write about fantasy, science fiction and adventures! It didn’t take long for me to realize that writing is very therapeutic especially when one is feeling moody. I currently have two works published; Betrayal of Blood (a novella of the Wielder Series) and The Novice Wielder ( a novel.) The story is about certain individuals from the three races that inhabit a world of fantasy and magic . There is conflict, betrayal, a bit of angst and lots of magic in this story. I’m currently working on the next book in this series. I hope you enjoy my books.

Sleepless Flame

How much havoc could one upstart young Upworlder create? Thirty years after her exile from her homeworld, Nara was growing weary of the monotony of mercenary life: Do job for Company A, anger Company B, survive the inevitable retaliation. Repeat ad nauseam. Most importantly, try hard not to piss off Galavantier Corp again. Evading the reach of the ubiquitous Biotech enterprise in the shadows of the Undercity was easy enough. That is, until the unconscious body of the CEO’s heir lands at her feet. Both ignorant of their mutual vendetta, the brazen noble offered a proposal: help him escape Uppercity, and he’d buy every tool of destruction her heart desired. But it was the danger that tempted Nara, not money. As their business relationship evolves into a tenuous camaraderie, Nara is thrown into the jaws of her most ruthless adversary. She must now decide what to do with her strange bedfellow–and hope to survive the aftermath.
