I loved fairy tales as a child, but could never get enough of them until I learned to read for myself. I spent my formative years playing dungeon master to my sisters long before there were actual games requiring one. Our Barbies fought Klingons, conquered the galaxy—and always had room on their spaceship for horses.
I am a horsewoman, an archer, a fencer, a former U. S. Air Force officer, and a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism—all useful skills and experiences for a fantasy novelist.
I hold down a day job in Mississippi, USA, where I live with my husband and two daughters. I am presently down to one horse, one cat, and one dog—and ‘way too many books.
I read and write Epic Dark Fantasy and Science Fiction, with some Napoleonic/Regency Suspense, Contemporary Suspense, and Steampunk thrown in.
Description of The Legend of the Spider-Prince series:
In a war-torn land where men have unbridled influence, but women hold the reins of power, a young rebel becomes entangled in a deadly web of magic, court intrigue, and revenge amid an escalating wave of events that will ultimately destroy magic, overturn governments, cause the near-collapse of civilization, even threaten the very existence of life on Eryth—and make him a legend.
Description of Book 1,
The Legend of the Spider-Prince: Rebel
Wyl is a young rebel whose life of dangerous lies and hidden truths has cost him his childhood and his ability to trust. He is fanatically loyal to the rebel leader, a woman embroiled in a blood-feud with Trascolm's ruling clan. When he’s not away spying, he’s her secret bodyguard—she needs protection from her army of renegades and outlaws as much as from bounty-hunters and assassins sent by her archenemy.
But when the rebellion meets with disaster, the rebel leader's strategy changes. Wyl is thrust into a hostile royal court of underage teens—mere children, to his mind. He’s expected to embrace this more civilized way of life, but his brutally-honed instincts betray him, and he makes enemies instead of friends. Wyl—a boy raised by outlaws—is in over his head and must somehow master the subtleties of court intrigue well enough to keep the rebel leader and her rebellion alive, despite the treacherous machinations of her enemies, and do it without getting himself killed.
