The Battle for Liberty is a fantasy novel.
Following in the footsteps of a thirteen-year-old girl, The Battle for Liberty explores the world of Whenua – a land based loosely upon New Zealand. The titular Liberty, a half-human daughter of a Phantom, grows up with the wilderness as her guide and Whenua’s creatures as her friends. She learns difficult lessons as she grows, but none so great as the discovery of herself. Whilst an ancient evil threatens to overtake her world, Liberty strives to overcome her weaknesses that she might have a fighting chance against the greatest enemy her world has ever seen.
Two headstrong women in their forties coming from different moral directions clash within the confines of a French-Canadian mill town in northern Rhode Island’s Blackstone Valley. Their narratives relate how an heirloom quiche recipe and baking rivalry redress misconceptions, misdeeds, and maliciousness which wreak havoc on those caught in the crossfire of a tragedy precipitated by reckless behavior.
Augusta Bergeron: Dysfunctional. Deceptive. Demure. More than meets the eye at face value and stuck in a holding pattern, the town siren engages in morally destructive behavior she attributes to maternal abandonment until she eggs-humes her mother’s quiche recipe.
Lindsay Metcalfe: Pedigreed. Privileged. Proper. Mourning the recent death of her mother, the historian-in-residence hailing from Boston sets out to preserve the legacy of an impoverished mill, but gets more than she bargains for all around.
My main focus in writing is Contemporary Christian Romance/family books which will uplift, encourage and teach readers how to walk right and also how to pray, through the lives of everyday characters. I love dancing salsa and the tranquillity of nature.

I’m a DARK FANTASY author, and you can find me on my website (http://andypeloquin.com/)
I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist–words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I’m also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy novels.
Fantasy provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion, race, or lifestyle–it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand new way. Fiction at its very best!
Vicious, ruthless criminals are made, not born. Child of the Night Guild—an insight into the transformation from innocent child to thief and killer.
Child of the Night Guild (Queen of Thieves Book 1)
“They killed my parents. They took my name. They imprisoned me in darkness. I would not be broken.”
Viola, a child sold to pay her father’s debts, has lost everything: her mother, her home, and her identity. Thrown into a life among criminals, she has no time for grief as she endures the brutal training of an apprentice thief. The Night Guild molds an innocent waif into a cunning, agile outlaw skilled in the thieves’ trade. She has only one choice: steal enough to pay her debts.
The cutthroat streets of Praamis will test her mettle, and she must learn to dodge the City Guards or swing from a hangman’s rope. But a more dangerous foe lurks within the guild walls. A sadistic rival apprentice, threatened by her strength, is out for blood.
What hope does one girl have in a world of ruthless men?
‘Beyond Rock Bottom’ is a tale of love, loss, and healing. The book is an anthology of Kara Petrovic’s experiences with mental illness and how it’s affected her ability to love, be loved, and experience love. It’s a story of healing and finding strength and love within oneself. While dark, there is an underlying optimism behind every poem.
Hello. I am an author of fantasy (mostly) and have several books out. The link I provided will take you to my Amazon author page, which showcases all my books. The primary book I want to bring to your attention is Legacy of Dragonwand, a trilogy. Here is a description of the first book.
Over 1000 years ago, nearly all the ancient wizards were destroyed after the Wizard Wars. However, the one who started the War still remains, having worked his will in secret. If he can find the last Dragonwand, he will regain his powers as the dark dragon. Unaware of the Dragonwand or the betrayer, sixteen-year-old Markus is looking for a wizard who will give him a letter of recommendation for the College of Wizardry. During his journey, he stumbles upon Tolen the Wise, who sends Markus on a quest to end the darkness and find the Dragonwand before it gets into the wrong hands.
On the Ides of March 2017, with the generous help of friends and family, I published my first novel, Pontius Aquila: Eagle of the Republic. It is about Lucius Pontius Aquila, a citizen of ancient Rome. Aquila was a staunch supporter of the Roman Republic and considered Julius Caesar’s dictatorship a threat to the people’s freedom. Historians recorded that he refused to stand with the other officials as Caesar’s chariot passed by during a military parade. He later joined in the assassination of Caesar on the Ides of March, 44 B.C. The novel includes martial arts, capable women, and romance.
