Victory is written in the blood of the brave. As the armies of the Tibran Empire continue to march across Maldobar, a path of scorched destruction and despair is left in their wake. Even with the formidable princess, Jenna Farrow, leading the charge, the strength of the dragonriders is waning. Tibran victory appears inevitable—especially after Princess Jenna and Prince Aubren are taken hostage by the infamous Lord Argonox. Separated from her brother and tortured for information, Princess Jenna refuses to bend to the iron will of Argonox. But her strength and resolve may only last so long. Held prisoner in his dark tower, it would take a miracle to set her free—or perhaps a pair of demigods and their dragons. With revived dragonrider legend, Jaevid Broadfeather, at his side, Reigh must now make a choice: face the truth about the origin of his dark powers, or turn his back on world in need. But throwing off a lifetime of shame and self-doubt is not so easily done—especially when the cost of failure means the destruction of the world. The long-awaited hero has awakened. The ancient spirits are stirring. The dark goddess has chosen her champion. But is he ready to embrace that rite and become the HARBINGER Maldobar needs him to be?

My office is my sanctuary.
As a military spouse and mother of one little boy—I live in a world of jets, fighter pilots, moving boxes, diapers, Thomas the Train, and Hot Wheels. But all that stops at the threshold of my office. This is my space, my little slice of sanity, in an otherwise chaotic life. Imaginary boys only!!
I kept a lot of the action figures and books I collected when I was in high school and put them up on display now for nostalgia. Most of them are related to the animes I used to watch when I was a kid. Those are the characters that really ignited my passion for storytelling.
I have 5 bookshelves all backed to the gills, and a mini antique shelf on my desk I use to display my favorites or books I’ve written. I love orchids, and I have one on my desk that my husband got me for Mother’s Day. They seem to be the only plant I can keep alive, ironically, because they thrive on neglect and I can provide lots of that when it comes to plants.
I get some strange looks when I tell people I have a snake in my office. But I do! I have a ball python named Noodle Nagini in an aquarium and he likes to sit in my lap while I work. There are a lot of misconceptions about snakes, especially ball pythons, which really make fantastic pets. Noodle is very friendly, loves to be handled, and is the lowest maintenance of all my family members.
