Works in Progress

Ardanya’s Stolen Children/Nadalya’s Sorcerer Child challenges talented children to rescue themselves and others from foreign navies and traffickers. Set in a region of different cultures, the novel traces Laden’s growth as the strongest healer and sorcerer in centuries and how he learns to balance what magic he takes from his world with what he returns in helping others.
