Rogue Legacy, the prequel novel to The Runes of Issalia series, is now complete and the book cover is posted below. I hope you like the design, since this cover is the first that reflects my new branding.
My inspiration for Rogue Legacy lies somewhere between Princess Bride and Forrest Gump, combining the spirit and themes of both while placing the tale within Issalia, 400 years prior to the events of the original trilogy. The book consists of a two-part story, with both parts based on the same character. Part I is FREE for anyone who subscribes to my author newsletter, while Part II will come when the full novel is released on February 8, 2018. Don’t worry, Part I was written to be a full story within itself and it concludes with a satisfactory ending. I have included the book teaser below for more information. In addition, the book is now LIVE on Goodreads for anyone who reads part I – or is among the few who receives a full ARC – and wishes to leave a review.
As for my writing, I am now well into the first novel of my next fantasy series. I expect the book to release in May, with a sequel coming in fall of 2018. Look for more information early next year.
Best Wishes and Happy Reading,

A powerful organization, a dangerous magic, a dark plot...and the girl who stood in the way.
When tragedy strikes, Lyra runs for her life…directly into the hands of fate. Destiny places her at the heart of a plot to overthrow the rulers of Issalia, a plot she must help thwart. Led by a man armed with powerful magic, and joined by a single soldier who wields an enchanted weapon, the three must face the most fearsome army the world has ever known. Even if they survive this epic confrontation, the future is not secure…for the threats surrounding Lyra do not end there.
History often forgets the details, and sometimes, history forgets the truth. Meet Lyra: an orphan, a thief, a liar, a bard, a warrior, a princess…a rogue. Her story reveals what truly happened hundreds of years before The Runes of Issalia series takes place. Within these pages, resides her legacy.
