Initiate is the first book in my trilogy about Aidene, a girl who becomes a hero. It’s a story about loyalty and beginnings.

Fourteen-year-old Aidene Broadwell, with her head in the clouds and a tendency to act before she thinks, is delighted to find herself in a world straight out of a daydream. Fantasies are soon shattered in a terrifying attack, leaving dead and injured alike, with one boy, Matheo, vanishing completely. Aidene promises Meira, a heartbroken new friend and Matheo’s younger sister, that she will not leave until he is found. A daunting task for two young girls, and things get more complicated when Aidene is chosen as a Dragon Warrior–a mystical knight sworn to protect peace and justice–the first to be chosen for nearly two thousand years. But with Akacia, a snarky dragon, glued to her side–okay, well, that part is pretty awesome–and elves managing her every move while ignoring her every word, the only way to find the time to uncover what is hiding in the darkness would be to run away and make the time. 

The small group of new friends set off with a single clue–a cursed mountain of shadow and wrath. Who–or what–is the mountain hiding? Will the friends survive the endeavor? And will any of them ever find their way home again?

key songs: The World is Ahead by Howard Shore, the Hobbit soundtrack

Warrior is the second book of the trilogy. The stakes get higher, problems really start pouring in. Its a story about fear and courage, weakness and strength. It’s a story about hope in the darkest times.

Aidene is back, and this time she’s thrust into a glittering world where the smiles are faker than the jewels. Hints to a new evil scheme of Vivianda’s seems like a wonderful escape route- until Mira falls victim to it; a powerful new bio weapon cooked up in Vivianda’s lab. Now it’s a mad rush to find the cure before it’s too late- for Mira, and everyone else.

Legends is the story of Charla Seelom, who was, how she came to be a hero, the choices she made and the reasons behind them, told by three narrators.

Jessica Johnson is having the worst year of her life. It’s September 1996, start of her sophomore year in high school, and everything should be perfect. But her grandmother, the only person in her life who has been a steady source of love and support, is dying of cancer, and her parents are too busy fighting each other to care. Jessica wants out, so when she stumbles across a crack in the universe leading to a snowy mountainside, she doesn’t look back. 

Remkogan is pleased. His plans to dismantle the structure of Ilsya and completely rebuild the country from the ground up is coming along wonderfully, and he’s succeeded in slipping undetected under those incorrigible Dragon Warrior’s noses long enough to seriously weaken them. Yes, they finally caught on, and he currently has three armies on his doorstep, but he has an army too. And a secret weapon the Dragon Warriors will never have. 

Aidene has longed for adventure all her life. She’s dying to get away from the tiny village of her birth, to escape from being the baby of her large extended family, escape from having to marry, and expanding the family even more. The quiet girl Aidene’s father found lost on the mountainside is certainly interesting, refusing to give her name, so is dubbed Jena. They quickly become friends, Aidene and Jena, planning to travel the world together. Plans are disrupted, however, when the new girl gets chosen as an Initiate, Dragon Warrior in training, and is rushed to the frontlines; as well as everyone else who could be spared. 

The war is going badly for everyone but Remkogan, Aidene finds herself with more adventure than she bargained for, and Jena is beginning to wonder if perhaps she was better off back home.

Finding Agent Mercy is a futuristic/secret agent story I’m trying not to focus on, sorry Kat. :’) But I will get to it someday! and it will be great!!

Kathrynn “Kat” Mercy is an ordinary teenage girl in early 2019…until she’s not. She wakes up in the year 3527, in the center of a covert group of spies, where she’s been in a coma for the last two years. She was also the best spy that they had- but she now remembers none of it. Kat’s peers are struggling with the gain but loss of a friend who doesn’t remember them, her bosses are frustrated with the loss of their best agent, and Kat is drowning in expectations, while trying to accept this new reality, her role in it, who she was and who she is…all while fighting another group hidden in the shadows. But why are they fighting them? They are spies, after all, the truth is not always as it seems.
