My first novel release was Flames over Frosthelm, a fantasy adventure mystery story, kind of Princess Bride meets CSI. Since then, I’ve released two more Inquisitors’ Guild stories, and I’ve written a sci fi adventure story set in the far future called Daros. I’ve also written a children’s book on endangered species published by Charlesbridge. Please sign up for the mailing list to keep abreast of new releases.
Flames over Frosthelm
Sometimes, a mystery has no easy solution. Marten Mingenstern and Boog Eggstrom are provisional inspectors, fresh out of Inquisitor’s Guild training and eager to prove themselves. Assigned a mundane task, tracking down stolen jewels, they instead uncover a mysterious cult set on destroying the city. People start to explode, they earn the enmity of a vicious noble, the Chief Inquisitor gets bought off and goes rogue, barbarians seize them, and they are sentenced to death. Twice. In a final, frantic race against prophecy, they stand alone against the power of an angry god. Available at Amazon.
The Outcast Crown
Boog Eggstrom is back, and he’s helping to train a new apprentice inspector, Zekra Kalem. Together, they investigate a mysterious phenomenon afflicting the city – a troubling manifestation, always accompanied by a buzzing sound, sometimes taking almost human form. As they search for clues, they come across a murder of someone who should probably already have been dead and find hints of treachery and intrigue from a far distant land. The city they love may be under a threat as dire as it has ever known, and they are thrust into the twisting machinations of an ancient, deadly mistake and a curse that afflicts an entire nation.
Available on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback. 100% free for Kindle Unlimited members.
Provisional Inspector Emerra Denault is working on a case with her mentor investigating some stolen money. Everything seems straightforward, but then she is accused of a crime she would never commit. On the run from both her enemies and her friends and not sure of which is which, Emerra must solve the mystery of her betrayal and uncover the plot that led to her misfortune. That plot, still in motion, is deep and deadly. It would give the city she loves over to relentless murderers bent on power. Emerra faces criminals, corruption, magic, villanous nobles, and rot within the Guild she serves. She must overcome them all to save Frosthelm and to stay alive.
This novella is available on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback.

High above Daros, sixteen-year-old Brecca Vereen prepares to unload a cargo of trade goods aboard her father’s ship, the Envy’s Price. Nellen Vereen shows her a mysterious artifact bound for a contact below, one that will earn them a lot of credits, and one that they definitely won’t be declaring to customs.
Materializing out of nowhere, alien invaders fire upon all ships, destroy the jump gate, and knock out communications. The Envy’s Price is crippled, and as her father tries to guide it down from orbit, Brecca rescues the illicit artifact and jettisons in a life pod to an uncertain fate below.
On the flagship of the invading fleet, Navigator Frim tries to persist within the cruel autocracy of the Zeelin Hegemony, under constant threat of death, but wishing for something better. And then she notices a whisper of radiation above Daros – the trail of a cloaked Vonar ship. What are they doing in the midst of all this? And will the captain kill her just for revealing this disagreeable news?
