THE TALES OF DARKWOOD
“If Stephen King and the Grimm brothers had a baby, it would be this series.”
This completed series (five books and a novella) is a dark fantasy set in Medieval Germany. Each book twists a Grimm’s fairy tale in a unique way as the story of a cursed child and her Traveller family unfolds. Will Bella and her children find a way to defeat a blood curse cast when Bella was a newborn?
Nonfiction & Plays
My journey into writing books started with a terrible condo fire. We lost everything in that fire, and would have lost our lives, too, but our beloved rescue dog woke us in time. Our year-long funny/difficult journey to recovery + delicious recipes will comfort and inspire you. Half of all proceeds are donated to animal shelters. Get your copy here:
I have two full length plays that delight audiences. Perfect for your community theatre!

The Tales of Darkwood
Blood to Bind: Tales of Darkwood Book 5
Can far-flung allies band together in time to find the items they need to defeat a blood curse? Or will Strom destroy them all? It seems impossible. Rue has been locked in a convent, Gert is bound to her ship and bucking her destiny, Bella and Harold are being hunted in the Darkwood, while Bettina struggles to survive her sister in Marseille. Somehow, some way they must come together, find the silver goblet and rings, the ancestor's bones, an ancient blade, and most importantly, the blood that binds all together to form a potent cure.
