Writer of historical fantasy for mid-teens and up. The Empire's Legacy series, (currently Empire's Daughter, Book I, and Empire's Hostage Book II, are available) is set in a world where sexuality is fluid; it explores gender expectations, the conflicts between personal belief and societal norms, and how personal definitions of love and loyalty change with growth and experience The world of Empire's Legacy was inspired by my interest in the history of Britain in the years when it was a province of the Roman Empire called Britannia, and aftermath of the fall of the Roman Empire.
"Empire's Hostage" book launch is August 24 from 7-9pm at the Bookshelf E-Bar.
