Fun fact. I am a 2nd generation metal-head. My father raised me on metal, and my musical tastes are very much a part of who I am as a person. Another thing my father raised me on, was dragons. Some parents teach their young children to draw stick figure people, or flowers, or suns with happy faces. My dad taught me how to draw fire-breathing dragons. I grew up in the 80s when high-fantasy movies were quite popular, and thanks to my dad, these are the movies I grew up watching. I was, and still am, obsessed with dragons (and all things High-Fantasy). I’ve always had a love and appreciation for metal thanks to my upbringing, primarily Thrash Metal, but it wasn’t until I was a bit older that I discovered that my two greatest loves in life actually came together.
Fantasy story-telling + Heavy Metal = Power Metal!
There is a very steep learning curve for self-publishing, but after months of trial and error, at long last, Torn Apart is now officially available in paperback! There is no greater joy for a writer than being able to hold a physical copy of your book in your hands.
Have you ever read a novel that takes place in a fantasy universe based on Medieval Europe, or a historical fiction that is set over a hundred years ago, or thousands of years ago, or a story that happens on a different planet to a race of people that have no knowledge of Earth’s civilization or culture? Then, once immersed in these carefully crafted worlds, the writer uses an idiom, simile, or references something that completely pulls you out of the story because they’re using an expression that doesn’t fit with the story time or setting? One of the things that always ruins the reading experience for me is when writers use out of place expressions.
Greetings gentle readers, today I have posted the first chapter of the Convergence series, which will be a 3 book series. I will be posting 1 chapter a week, but I am usually 8-12 chapters ahead at any given time. I like having the option to go back and correct things or make changes before uploading them, so I try to stay ahead. This means updates to the story will always be regular and on time (providing I don’t have some weird personal life mishap). I intend to upload chapters on Fridays or Saturdays, depending on my schedule.
If you want to see how far ahead I am of posting schedule, you can keep track on the Current Projects page, where I will periodically post status updates.
Follow me on my blog, my Wattpad or FictionPress, or my social media accounts for regular updates.

As a priestess in the service of the dragon goddess, Halea must roam the land hunting demons and sealing tears caused by the Chaos Dimension that seeks to converge with their world. She has sworn an oath to devote herself only to her goddess, and if necessary, will even die for her mission.
One day she discovers that her beloved childhood friend, Varg, has survived the devastation of the last convergence and has since risen to become the alpha of his people, the lycans. Together they battle the forces of Chaos, but when Varg wants Halea to be his mate, she is torn between her oath and her desire to be with the Wolf King who loves her. Only a blood sacrifice can stop the coming of the next convergence, and with Halea’s life on the line, Varg will do anything to save her.
