Did you know I’m releasing my first ever serialized novel, DREADLANDS: BLOOD MOON, book 2 in the Moon Cycle Dodecad? The first 3 episodes are FREE to read AND Amazon will give you 500 tokens to use for future episodes!

DREADLANDS: BLOOD MOON is a paranormal historical mashup, and if you loved Wolf Moon, book 1 in the Dreadlands series, you’re in for another dark adventure.


In the vein of “Vikings of Valhalla” meets “Lord of the Rings,” this paranormal historical romance explodes with thrills, adventure, were-creatures, and twisted lore. Scalvia and Arud’s forbidden romance is tested. A werebat species led by a Mayan Bat God threatens the Viking world of Vithalia. Lykke finds new allegiance with the Cur human-wolf hybrid while her brother, Arud, searches for Father in the Great Beyond. Dragons, pegasus, shifters, and magic will keep you on the edge of your seat!
