Title: The Keeper

Status: Complete

Age: YA+

Summary: Every two thousand years, a Keeper is chosen to protect the Black Forest and preserve the balance of life and death amongst its denizens. Traditionally, the Keeper is selected at age five, trained, and then annointed into the role at age twenty. But this time, something went wrong.

When she was five years old, a half-human, half Elven child named Anabelle was chosen to be Keeper. But she has no memory of that event, no memory of the man who tried to kill her, no memory of what her mother did to protect her. Now on her twentieth birthday, she is thrust into an unfamiliar world with dreams of fey and spirits, of masked balls and handsome strangers.

As memories of her past return, so does an old foe who wants to control the power of the Keeper. Even as those around her succumb to the darkness, Anabelle fights to discover the heritage that was hidden from her in hopes of defeating this man.

The one who will take everything from her. Even her life.


Tales of the Inglorious Brotherhood

Volume 1, Episode 1 NOW COMPLETE!

The king is dead. And those that did it are literally getting away with murder. Thanks in part to framing two innocent men: one a former and trusted general of the late King, and the other his naive, not-so-worldly son, the prince.

Together, they must join forces to track down those who actually did the foul deed, bring them to justice, and clear both their names. But, as with all things that sound so simple, they rarely, if ever, are.

When a former associate of the general turns up, making an offer they can’t refuse, these two mismatched companions are sent down a path to new adventures that neither of them ever asked to be a part of. And in the process, they will give rise to a new legend: the legend of The Inglorious Brotherhood.

Engulfed by Aries (ONC Entry - Novella Version)


Chaos was the creator of all and ruler of nothing. Over the next several millennium, it watched its descendants enjoy life’s luxuries while it dwelled within the heart of oblivion. Its envy and rage grew, leading it to seek solace in the heart of the ruler of the in-between realm, Erebus. It hoped to make the other deities and the mortals pay for forcing it to live a life of obscurity.

When Erebus and the Goddess of the Stars, Asteria, meet, they end up falling in love, which leads to the creation of the thirteen strongest constellations in the world, the Zodiac. Their love sealed the mortals’ fate, for each Zodiac embodied an important mortal value. The Dark Lord’s thirst for power has overtaken Erebus’ body and corrupted the Zodiac, thrusting the mortal world into a colorless dystopia.

“Engulfed by Aries” focuses on teenage blacksmith apprentice, Hestia Castellanos, as she struggles with her duty to corrupt Aries and her looming father, and her unrecognizable feelings for comrade, Alastair Romanos. Can she regain the courage to stand up to Aries and free her people? Or will she give up everything, including her one chance of happiness with Alastair?

Engulfed by Aries Book 1 (Extended Version)

The world has evolved for the worst as humans are plunged into a state of anarchy, fear, and disillusion. No one is safe from what was deemed to be the mythical, not even the children.

On Hestia’s thirteenth birthday, she is chosen, along with her childhood friend, Alastair, to move to Redwater and become an apprentice to the hardened blacksmith Master Haemon. She has all but one goal: to create a weapon worthy enough for Celestial Deity Aries to wield against her most hated sibling, Celestial Deity Libra.

With Libra and her subjects, the Concordeans, moving in on the borders of the Isles of Aithne, Hestia decides to join Aithne’s army, the Pyrkagía, despite Alastair’s vehement disapproval. In a place where love is forbidden and feared, Hestia has to choose to fight for what she wants or to let it perish into oblivion.
