Latest Release

Dragon Sect

Book 2 in the Highcliff Guardians Series

The Dragon Witch Wraith has returned.

With the Grim Duke in his place, and a tentative pact with the wizard’s guild, the Queen of the Elves’ only real concern is for her rebellious daughter. Or so she is led to believe.

Buoyed by the news of unrest in the land’s largest city of Urdanya, Duke Orlythe’s new wizard attempts to convince him that a path to the coveted Willow Throne lies within reach of someone bold enough to seize the opportunity.

The return of the Dragon Witch Wraith prompts the ailing high wizard to find a way to thwart his arch nemesis before everything South March has fought for is lost.

Oblivious to the dangers of the world, Princess Ouderling sets out on a quest to locate an ancient dragon, in a desperate attempt to save her mother from an inevitable fate.

Should she fail, the Grim Duke will ascend the throne.

Book 3 in the Highcliff Guardians Series


Click on the image for the first chapter!

This is a compelling fantasy story about another place in time. The story draws you in and the imaginative writing keeps you reading . You are laughing, crying, or glued to the page to see what happens next. One of the best fantasy books I’ve read in a long time!

Praise for the
Soul Forge Universe

This story is fantastic. Reecah is a beautifully crafted young lady with an amazing history. She is incredibly likeable and I love the story of each of the dragons. Over all I cant wait to buy the next book so that I can continue to travel with Reecah as she tries to save the dragons.


You couldn't want anything more from an epic fantasy book! Excitement, action, DRAGONS, wonderful character and relationship development, and memorable characters. You don't have to read all the other books in the Soul Forge Universe to love this one, it's just a truly enjoyable, epic read.
