The Journey Continues: More to Come for this YA Fantasy Adventure

As many of you know, I spent the month of August working to complete my revisions on the second book in my young adult fantasy series, the Heirs of Tenebris trilogy,in order to get it ready for publication. Today, I’m so excited to announce that not only have I signed on with Paper Raven Books to bring you Embers of Eternity, but the third and final book in the series too!


My Publishing Journey: One Month Later

Last month, I released my debut novel, Fire & Flight, the first in my young adult fantasy series, the Heirs of Tenebris trilogy. It’s still crazy to think that I’m a published author and that the book I spent nearly seven years writing is just out there. In the world. For all to read…I’m still wrapping my head around it! Now you may be wondering to yourself, “so, what are you doing now? What’s it like being a published author?” and those are all questions I intend to answer right here, right now.

My Publishing Journey: Fire & Flight’s Launch Week

As many of you know, the first novel in my epic fantasy series, the Heirs of Tenebris, released last week on July 19th. Knowing that Fire & Flight is out in the world and that there are actually people reading the novel I poured my heart and soul into is mindboggling. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to the fact that I’m a published author of a young adult fantasy book, but I’ll certainly never forget my launch week. Aside from the posts I shared on social media promoting my book release, I wanted to share my actual publishing journey with you and talk about some of the things that had happened behind the scenes of Fire & Flight’s debut (and mine too)!


It’s ALMOST release day!

With just a week away until the release day for Fire & Flight, I thought I’d share some important details before the big day!
