Thanksgiving has given way to Christmas, and that can only mean that the time of the Awards Eligibility Post is upon us. This year, I published three (!!!) novels and one short story. All are eligible for the various genre fiction awards.


The Beholden, published January 2022 by Erewhon Press. Standalone epic fantasy.

Two sisters, a pregnant aristocrat and a scholar-magician, owe a favor to a river goddess and find themselves at the center of a conflict between the immortal being Decay and the Emperor himself, as the goddess calls upon them to seek out this elusive god before the world crumbles around them all.

Singing with the Devil, published April 2022, Carina Press. Dark paranormal romance. Book 1 of the Black Moon duology.

She’d risked her heart once hunting demons. Now she’ll risk it again trying to save one.

Demon Song, published November 2022, Carina Press. Dark paranormal romance. Book 2 of the Black Moon duology.

A demon and a human find their happily-ever-after in this opposites-attract romance.
