My current project - a fantasy novel. Princess Clarimunde has never been permitted to leave the castle she calls home, unlike her brave soldier sister Cecily and her introspective scholar sister Clemence. But when word of a dragon's arrival reaches the castle - a dragon she thinks she's dreamed of her entire life - she flees the castle and soon finds herself offered up to the last dragon, Azhemar, as a sacrifice. But things do not go quite according to plan - for Claire, for Azhemar, and for the Sorcerer King who means to rule them both.
This is only a snippet of the larger work.
It was supposed to be yet another hike along a nature trail. Tired of the confines of her apartment after a long day at work, Alice heads out for a walk. But instead of the usual birds and squirrels, this time she comes across Wendy Darling, a traveler from another world. And when she returns home, Alice asks to be taken along. A novel I cowrote and published with two other writers, now available on Amazon!
