Adult Gothic Historical Fantasy - In a London rife with alchemy, magic lurks in the opium washed shadows of the aristocracy's decadence.
Flying llamas, an eclipse,
and the fate of a village
reunite a wizard and his
hedge witch apprentice.
Adult Fantasy - co-authored with Kate Capwell
A stranded Argaeus Freedman, llama farmer and former elemental wizard, sends a letter by seagull to his former apprentice Crystaline Ferfur when he finds himself stranded on an upturned boat between the mainland of Hatsurah and an island in the middle of an eclipse. When Crystaline, a powerful hedge witch, receives Argaeus’ letter she arranges passage from Caleeforniya to Hatsurah. Indebted to her former mentor, she’s also curious to see him after fifteen years apart. Once they find each other, they realize there is a lot more at stake than dying crops and unruly floating llamas. The storms during the eclipse have unearthed a body, and its malevolent spirit is intent on getting back what she believes is rightfully hers, whatever the cost.
Darker than Night
It wasn’t the worst day on record for Brant Leavins, bail bondsman, but it was close. A client with no head showed up in the bay costing him ten-K, one of his fugitive retrieval experts had gone missing and his back was killing him from an extended workout with Lucy Love—well, that wasn’t the bad part, it was the inflamed vertebrae from trying one of the Kama Sutra positions that had done him in. He might have noticed it at the time if he hadn’t been so high. But on his night off, it was his business what illegal drugs found their way into his pockets.
Brant kept the records of incoming stash hordes and was the only one with the master key to the transfer safe. The drugs he fenced with ease, and he took a hefty chunk off the top before he wrote them up. The excess paid for his fetish for handmade Italian leather shoes and his retrieval specialists were happy with the extra cash that came with almost no risk.
Night showing up with a police report on a DOA bounty was not making Brant happy. The bastard she’d been after was a prime candidate for being dead. Brant had raked in a ton of cash up front, but he was going to have to soak the rest.
