~ Where Fantasy Embraces Legend ~






On the planet of Celtarae, a solar celebration is being held. Only one Earth vessel is allowed to share in the festivities.

This year, that ship is the USS Inis Mór.

A botanist aboard the space vessel Inis Mór is about to experience the adventure of a lifetime. All in one week. She is in the company of someone who turns her boring, scientific existence around.

From fighting brutish malcontents in the street, being arrested, and touring spectacular, dragon-filled gardens, Lt. Kara Wayland’s future looks like nothing she ever planned. It’s an action-packed otherworldly Summer Solstice to remember.


Genre: action-adventure, short story, science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, futuristic.
Rating: G for all audiences.

In the distant future, two complete strangers must make a life altering choice – to mate forever.

Rayna Altair is seeking a new life on a world far from Earth.

After five long years of fighting pirates, all she wants is peace. The garden planet of Faerus offers everything her heart desires. Known as the Jewel of the Galaxy, Faerus is probably one of the only clean and unspoiled places left for settling. Even after being decimated by war.

There’s just one catch. Rayna and all the other applicants for citizenship must agree to mate – for life – with a Faerus citizen. But what does a woman do when three, warrior brothers vie for her hand? What happens when one brother decides that he should have first choice?

When Captain Cade Mars makes up his mind to enter an archaic drawing for the right mate, nothing will stop him. Not Fate. Not an infuriating admiral. Not the disbelief of his shipmates, and certainly not the skeptical woman of his dreams. Through the chaos of space and the shadows of war, only love can fill the void.

It’s all fun and games until the Goblins show up!


Jenny Clover comes from an exceptionally lengthy line of magical folk who emigrated to America during the Irish famine years. Eventually, her ancestors settled in a rural Texas community where they live today.

It has always been easy hiding her and her family’s mystic powers since using them would cause attention they don’t need. Especially when their biggest problem is watering livestock and no amount of magic Jenny, and her aunts and uncles possess can undo a drought.

When she mysteriously wins a contest for a soap company in Fermanagh County, Ireland, and the money that comes with it saves the family farm, Jenny is understandably overjoyed. She also wins an all-expense trip to Ireland, and she can’t wait to get to the homeland of her forebears.

Where one problem ended, however, an even bigger one presents itself in the form of The Honorable Declan Tyrnan Shea, lately bestowed with his father’s title as The Baron of Clanshea.

Where Jenny and Declan are concerned, mysterious and amazing magical forces are about to upend their lives. Neither of their families will ever be the same when the real adventure begins.

A Valentine’s Day short story…

Valentine’s Day for one cynical, mythic creature will never be the same.

Caleb Sumner is a Demonid.

He has seen men and women through the ages cheat on each other to the point that gushy holidays like Valentine’s Day make him sick.

This particular year, however, Caleb is one Grove Nymph away from having his heart and mind completely altered!

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Mythic Humor

Living an immortal life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, unless there’s something to give that life meaning.

A policewoman is seriously injured in an accident and about to die. She is saved by a vampire only to find that her family will never give up searching for her. For that family, she must remain dead forever. The past must be left behind.

An Irish shapeshifter gives her a way to hide from loved ones but at what cost?

Is living through eternity worth it? What purpose does life hold if you cannot be with the people who mean the most?

In the Irish countryside, vampires live and lurk. Ghouls are their prey, and no human knows whether vampires or ghouls even exist. It’s an eternal life where a newly changed predator might find redemption or horror. Inspiration or madness. The last thing one changeling expects is suspense, mystery, friendship, hope and even love.

For eons, the undead have lived among us. In the countryside of Ireland, it is easy to hide. For one lonely woman, her hidden existence in the night could be a curse. She is strong but different even from the other vampires around her and that difference may initiate the biggest journey of her undead life.
