I have several projects I am working on, some closer to being done than others (done being a relative term). Other are still bouncing around in the dark matter spaces of the Void, not quite ready for the light.
Although trying to edit/revise the first book in the Song of Raen series, the current activities depends on which character is yelling in my head the loudest.
Music is often my inspiration for new ideas or scenes and is often an underlying theme in my works.

Song of Life
The music sang to Kyrie Firehawk since she was a child, plants flourishing under her mystical gift just like the Shamans. Her crime? She was born female.
Refusing offers of family alliances much to her mother’s distress, Kyrie searches for more than the expected role of wife and mother offered to a woman. Defiant, she embraces her heart’s music, keeping her ability to manipulate the song of plants a secret. When invited to dinner by High Shaman Sebastian Maxwell, turning down yet another suitor for a house alliance without offending the most powerful man in Whitehall becomes the least of her problems. Kyrie discovers an attraction to the man who could punish her for her defiance; a man who knows her secret.
