First, a little bit about my title in the Cursed Lands box set, Iron & Wine!

Three mythical races. Decades of ancient war. And the love of one girl to save them all.

Going to college was supposed to open new doors for art student Avery Quinn. She just didn’t think one of those doors would be the gateway to another world, a hidden universe full of mythical creatures beyond the realm of belief, cloaked by modern day.

With an evil fairy Hell-bent on her demise and decades of a mythical war coming to fruition…Avery must find a way to help her magical friends end the ancient feud before the effects spill over into her own world.

But when the love of a gorgeous Australian vampire turns her life upside down, Avery finds her heart hanging in the balance…as well as her humanity.

Fans of HOLLY BLACK and MELISSA MARR Will Fall in Love with The Iron World Series!

Halloween Rite to Reign Scavenger Hunt!

It’s my favourite time of year…Fall! I mean, what’s NOT to love? The warm colors, the crisp Autumn air, the scent of pumpkins and cinnamon and spice. Don’t even get e started on comfy boots and knitted scarves. I could go on for days.

But one of the very BEST things about Fall…


This year I’ve teamed up with a whole pack of authors to create a collection of witchy stories. Rite to Reign is an anthology packed with 25 full length books, each one with a central theme of witches and sorcerers.

My contribution to the collection is Reigning Magicks, co-authored with my writer bestie JJ King and follows the tale of Princess Ashlynn, heir to the Irish Clan Kavanaugh throne. It starts out set in the 1700s, with a backdrop of Irish and Scottish lore, but we’ve created a hidden realm where these characters exist outside of the normal world. Kind of like Harry Potter but with epic witches and fiery feuds between clans.

So, What’s It About?

In order to maintain a shaky peace treaty, Conal Kavanaugh promises his oldest daughter’s hand in marriage to the rival Scottish clan. But Ashlynn will have nothing of it. Desperate, she performs an ancient spell to bring peace to her people without having to marry the Laird Bricagos. But, of course, the spell goes awry, and Ashlynn is sent to the future where she stumbles into the hands of a gypsy prince and warlock, Cian.

Together, they figure out what became of her people and search for a way to send Ashlynn back, but find themselves drawn to one another with each passing minute. Could it be the spell working its magic? Or maybe the only way to bring peace to her people was to remove Princess Ashlynn from the equation altogether. But where does that leave her? Lost and stranded in the future where rival clans are still fighting for power, only this time…her heart is on the line.

Preorder your copy of Rite to Reign where you will exclusively find our story Reigning Magicks! It’s on sale right now for just $0.99! Reserve yours here!
