Hi all! As I'm rewriting Nocturna, I realized I never really introduced the concubines and their children in the Second Palace (the harem/seraglio) like I did Valon, Alexei, Di, and Julian. Of course, this won't be as in-depth since there are so many, but I wanted to give a brief overview of their names, birthplaces, … Continue reading Character Profiles: Concubines and their Children
Okay, so I recently found this extra scene I wrote for Nocturna way back in 2015 for Father's Day, a year before the book was even published. I had posted this on my website already, but it was hidden away and no one saw it. Including me, since I forgot I posted it. So I'm … Continue reading Short Story: Nocturna – Father’s Day
I just wanted to give a description of the capital city where my main character Valon spends most of his time in my debut YA fantasy romance novel NOCTURNA, which is named after the country the city Udea is located in and hidden within modern-day Turkey. After the death of King Gideon in 127 (CE), the … Continue reading Udea, Capital of Nocturna

Hope you enjoy it! Chapter One Terror spiked in my veins as arms wrapped around me, caging … Continue reading NOCTURNA Sneak Peak: Chapter One
So I sort of just realized that Amazon only allows an author to put their book up for preorder for 3 months, so I'm pushing the date to begin preordering back to September 1 instead of August 1 so it could still be released December 1. (Gotta have those holiday gifts, right? ) Sorry for … Continue reading Quick Update
It's been a very long time since I've updated my site (because obviously two months is an extremely long time), but I've been doing stuff even though I've been away from this site! Some of you might have noticed that my domain name got rid of the (.)wordpress bit in it. I also got some … Continue reading I’m Back! + Nocturna Book Cover Reveal
The Council is a board of six Ancients, all men, who have been around since Alexei's great-grandfather's time. They, along with the King, make the laws of Nocturna. The Council also takes over ruling the kingdom when the son of the deceased King is under the age of adulthood, while the new King, the son, … Continue reading Q&A: What is the Council?
Nothing good. Either they try to escape and are caught and killed or they escape and are stranded. If they are caught while trying to run, they are killed on sight. No trial, no muss, no fuss. Just death. They wouldn’t be worth the effort if they were to try to escape again. It is … Continue reading Q&A: What happens to the captured humans when they try to escape?
