S.K. has been a lover of the written word since childhood, and she’s been writing stories for as long as she can remember. Her interest in the intertwining of history, mythology, and the artistry of language inspires much of her work, including the Silesia Trilogy and her next book, Son of Troy.
When she’s not writing novels, you can find her freelancing about writing and all things parenting. She also loves good music, chocolate, and playing with her kids.
She lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, six beautiful children, a stately cat, and a flock of backyard chickens.

This is such a fantastic sequel! Lords of Askalon is a darker, grittier story than Book 1, a study of human nature at its best and at its worst...and it's one heck of a wild ride. I loved the development of Sahara's character -- watching her grow and struggle and fall and try again to find her way in life. She is tough and vulnerable and passionate and broken, but struggling to find her identity and to overcome the ghosts of her past. We learn so much more about Jared and their friends, and meet some fascinating new enemies and allies along the way. And oh, do we visit some incredible worlds. Everything is so richly imagined and so unique...and I loved getting some more of the back story about why the worlds are the way they are. Nothing is ever as easy as it seems, and what started out as a simple enough plan quickly spirals out of control, as Sahara and crew discover just what happened in the aftermath of their rather Pyrrhic victory on Silesia.
I'm already dying to know what will happen in the next book!
