Forests of the Fae, Book One
Forests of the Fae: Devlin’s Door (first book of the trilogy), depicts the perilous journey of a young girl who stumbles upon a ghost town filled with dilapidated Victorian homes hidden deep within a forest in rural Washington State. As she unearths the tragic secret behind the mass disappearance of the town’s inhabitants nearly a century ago, our young heroine finds herself becoming a part of the town’s tapestry. Hushed references to Faerie folk and Changeling sacrifices stir the air as she reads aloud from an enchanted journal penned by one of the town’s youngest residents; and the homes, like resurrected corpses, begin to creak and moan with signs of life. But in the near distance, under a monstrous mound erupting like a boil from the earth, something else has awakened along with them.
The Raven Queen
Forests of the Fae, Book Two
A summer spent untangling a century-old mass disappearance, communing with ghosts, fleeing dark Fae Folk, and enduring her nefarious cousin Lexie would seem like tribulation enough for 13-year-old Anne, and yet her struggles have only just begun.
Forests of the Fae, Book Three
Since unraveling the century-old secret behind an eerie ghost town in rural Washington State, life has been anything but ordinary for 13-year-old Anne. Now, she and her companion Grace, find themselves tangled between two worlds—that of the Fae creatures, whose bloodlust for human hosts has led them to empty entire cities of their children, and the familiar world they’ve always known. But these two worlds have begun to bleed together, and Anne finds her family, her friends, and her very life in peril.
Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles
Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore, Book One
Living life as a bumbling breadbox with fur was hardship enough for Theodore the Corgi, but when the young dog finds himself cold and alone in a frightening animal shelter, it would seem he’s fated for folly.
The Adventures of Robin Hound
Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore, Book Two
When first we met young Theodore, in the pages of “Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles”, the clumsy little Corgi seemed altogether hopeless. Abandoned by his once-loving family and wallowing in a frightening animal shelter, Theo feared that all was lost.

Featuring: Whole In The Clouds
Cora Catlin is a misfit at best, and an outcast at worst. She feels out of place as if everything is backward and something is missing from her life. Her well-meaning mother tries to force her unstylish physique into new school clothes while the school bullies look on and laugh. She is picked on at school and dreads the start of a new year. Her loving father fills Cora’s emotional void with sweets and ill-conceived support, leaving Cora in a tug-of-war between her parents and within herself.
And then, on her first day of middle school, everything changes when, while taking a shortcut through the woods, Cora encounters an elfin stranger who speaks to her of the magical world of Clouden, an entire kingdom hidden up in the sky. This is the kingdom, he tells her, of her real parents and where she truly belongs.
Cora can’t wait to leave her boring, humdrum life behind. As she travels to her new home, where children sprout from the ground and rivers flow with chocolate, she finds herself transformed on the outside to the beautiful girl she has always been inside. And if that weren’t enough, she has to adjust to royal parents, a talking Pegasus, a raging war, and alluring love interest as well.
Exploring this new land, Cora unearths wonders and secrets beyond her wildest imaginings, discovering the meaning of true friendship, love, and what it means to feel whole in the clouds.
