Looking to be immersed in a magical world happening within our own? Here you'll find info on all my paranormal and folklore-inspired Urban Fantasy books and stories...worlds with epic, magical beings and ancient, unseen battles all happening right here among us.
The Leyward Stones
Trilogy 1 now available!
There are strange things happening in the small town of Havenridge--not the least of which is the mysterious stranger who just appeared from thin air in front of Ayla during her closing shift at the local cafe.
If you love folklore, fae stories, and clean paranormal urban fantasy, you’ll love The Leyward Stones!
This series first debuted on Kindle Vella in 2021-2023 as Macchiatos, Faerie Princes, and Other Things That Happen at Midnight, a three-part serial which comprised the first trilogy arc of the Leyward Stones story world, and was a Top Ranked story on Vella for much of its ongoing posting years! It is still available there to read in serial format, but that's not the only way to read it!...
You can also get full access to this trilogy--along with lots of bonus short stories and every other story I write in The Leyward Stones world, plus all the rest of my clean YA stories and books-- inside PirateCat Publishing, my clean YA reading portal.
And now, a revised, updated version of the full trilogy (including never-before-seen expanded scenes!) is also available in e-book (and coming soon to paperback) as a 3-book series:
Macchiatos, Faerie Princes, and Other Things That Happen at Midnight (The Leyward Stones, Book 1)
LeyGuards, Faespells, and Other Things That Breach the Veil (The Leyward Stones, Book 2)
Fae Curses, Dark Kings, and Other Things That Must Fall (The Leyward Stones, Book 3)
Choose whichever way to read it works best for you!

Looking for a fantasy, paranormal, or sci-fi story world you could visit on your lunch break (or less)? Look no further! You can experience multiple worlds on my blog at the link below. And If you're interested in short stories from the Arameth and Leyward Stones worlds, be sure to check out PirateCat! I have some exclusive stories available only on that platform.
In 2019-2020 (and extending through part of 2021), I joined a writing challenge. One of the requirements is to write fresh short stories and flash regularly... sometimes several a month. While this challenge has been, well, a challenge, it has also had the enormous benefit of pushing me to create new and original story worlds again and again! While some of my short stories and flash are earmarked for uses which prohibit me from sharing them online (and still others are set aside for exclusive PirateCat readership!), I do have a few on my blog to read for free.
