Sometimes a legacy is little more than a noble name or title, or it’s something more tangible and valuable.  For Grania O’Ceagan, her family’s legacy may prove more extraordinary than she ever expected.

On Earth, the last of the O’Ceagan family on the planet dies. The spirit tasked with announcing death to this particular bloodline completes the rites for the old woman, then makes an unprecedented decision as she turns her eyes to the stars.

When her grandfather takes ill, Grania captains the family space freighter on a routine run from Erinnua to Earth.  Picking up passengers wasn’t a part of the plan, but it will add to the profitability of the trip. A ship-threatening event during a jump and the motives of her passengers test Grania’s training and judgment in an emergency that could destroy all of them. Does she have what it takes to save her ship and crew?

O’Ceagan’s Legacy is a fun space fantasy with action, adventure, and a touch of romance.

Reader comments:
  “I really enjoyed this!  The Rolling Stones with Space Banshees and a healthy dose of cozy mystery stirred in, done up in a style reminiscent of Mercedes Lackey!”

“Loved mixing star travel and the Fae.”

“This was a fun mix of paranormal and sci-fi, legend and future. I liked the concept and thought it was well carried out.”

In other news… my recent release in this same universe, In Strange Waters, is now available in paperback on Amazon.com

In Strange Waters

Book Cover: In Strange WatersFor a shape shifter stranded on a distant world, water is life itself; the main thing that makes his self-imposed exile tolerable.

But Dari soon learns the waters of Erinnua are not like the seas of Earth. The sea life appears twisted and distorted. Swimming in it feels unnatural to his water horse form as he finds it disturbing and dangerous. Even the dominant underwater species may be suffering from the effects of a terrible human-caused accident. In fact, all life on the planet may be at risk if what he fears is true.

Can Dari convince the human colonists of the danger and work with them to prevent the disaster threatening their world?
Set in the same universe as O’Ceagan’s Legacy, this tale takes the reader on an adventure with the shape-shifting puca as he explores his new home.

Want to read this book for free? Adding a little more excitement to the free book promotion, I will be making the eBook version of In Strange Waters free for five days in February beginning the 13th.

By the way, if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read In Strange Waters for free right now!

New Release Today!

After a busy November and December, I am thrilled to announce that I have released a new book today!

In Strange Waters is a new short novel in the O’Ceagan Saga series. While it is in the same universe, it features one of the supporting characters from O’Ceagan’s Legacy, Dari, the shape-shifting puca or pooka.

As a recent resident on Erinuua (New Ireland), a planet in the Dragon Star system, Dari is eager to explore his new home and find his place in it. For a shapeshifter stranded on a distant world, water is life itself; the main thing that makes his self-imposed exile tolerable.

But Dari soon learns the waters of Erinnua are not like the seas of Earth. The sea life appears twisted and distorted. Swimming in it feels unnatural to his water horse form as he finds it disturbing and dangerous. Even the dominant underwater species may be suffering from the effects of a terrible human-caused accident. In fact, all life on the planet may be at risk if what he fears is true.

Can Dari convince the human colonists of the danger and work with them to prevent the disaster threatening their world?

More upcoming News…

New Release on October 22, 2018


I am so excited to announce that the 5th, and final, book in the Funeral Singer series, A Song of Redemption will be released on Monday, October 22nd. I’ve loved working on this series, and I think the final book is an explosive and exciting wrap-up to Gillian Foster’s story.

A Song of Redemption

At a loss and depressed following her team’s failure to contain Belphegor, Gillian Foster begins to pull herself together to plan her next moves and build a network of other spirit escorts to help her. The threat of the soul thieves grows daily and thrusts the need to stop them solely on her.

When a horrifying attack on her friend brings the problem home leaving Gillian’s life in turmoil, she struggles to control the damage. Working with Orielle, the anthropologist, who is an expert on supernatural creatures, they soon find support from an unexpected source—the Vatican.

The path ahead is clear; the tasks to be done defined. Now all Gillian has to do is execute them and stay alive.

The Kindle book is now listed for pre-order at 99-cents on Amazon.

To celebrate the release, I am putting all five of the Funeral Singer books, including this new one, on sale for 99-cents each. It’s a great time to pick up the set for a total of $4.95. The books will be at this price from October 22 to October 24.

Next Project

Once this novel is out, I will be prepping for this year’s NaNoWriMo and getting my plot lined up for a new book. I have two ideas that I am trying to narrow down for this project, and I am excited about both. More on that after I get into the writing.

In the Works

I have two books that are in the editing process right now. One is a related book to O’Ceagan’s Legacy, which is to say it’s in the same universe but features one of the supporting characters in the book. That book is In Strange Waters, and I plan to release it in January 2019. Look for more information in December. It’s a little different from O’Ceagan’s Legacy, but it is a fun read with a different viewpoint.

The other book is Time Walker, a fantasy novel that combines time travel with a touch of Steampunk. The planned release date for it is in May 2019 to coincide with the Book Lovers’ Convention in New Orleans. The story combines adventure and a bit of romance… But look for more about that in March 2019.

Book Progress and Promo

Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since April when I released “A Song of Forgiveness”. I have been busy these past few months though and I am in the final stages of the fifth book of the “Funeral Singer” series, “A Song of Redemption”, which is now planned for release on October 22, 2018. This will wrap up that series so I hope you’re ready for it to end. I’ve loved writing Gillian’s adventures, but I have other projects I am eager to work on also.

One of them is a new book that I wrote this summer that involves time travel and a touch of steampunk. It’s a fun story and I had a great time with it. In May, I went to a master plotting workshop with Cherry Adair and came out with lots of tips, ideas, and a novel almost ready to be written. In July, I made it my summer Camp NaNoWriMo project and completed the first draft. I’m ready to begin the first round of edits now. At this time, I am anticipating a late Spring release.

Another book that needs to be edited is set in the same universe as “O’Ceagan’s Legacy” and explores the Erinnua home world through they eyes of a new arrival. The story is written and ready to edit. I just need many more hours in my days.

More on both of these projects later.

For now, I’d like to tell you about an exciting book promotion that starts today – September 6th – to coincide with National Read a Book Day. Several of our Nevada authors have gone in together to  promote our books. If you’re looking for a new read, check out these books.To learn more and find links to the individual books, click here.

Until next time, enjoy the fall weather coming soon.  Or if you’re south of the equator, spring is on its way. Either way. there should be lovely days ahead.

I update this again soon with more information on the new novels.
