Romancing the Stone in space meets Final Fantasy, for fans of THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS, EMILY WILDE'S ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF FAERIES, and the dual timelines of the GENTLEMAN BASTARDS series. Adult fantasy, 108k words.


Writing bestselling adventure novels is Sapphira Wisheart’s secret escape from isolation as daughter of the galactic empire’s governing family. Wishearts have counseled the empire since its inception, so when her mother announced the role would pass to the Senate upon her death, Sapphira became the first Wisheart to be both heir and spare. 

Her family’s humiliating distrust is bad enough. Continued confinement by round-the-clock bodyguards and the only ten-mile radius she’s ever known is even worse. Living vicariously through her planet-hopping heroine for the past decade has kept Sapphira sane. But fictional exploits can’t replace real-world know-how, which would be handy as hell when rebels frame Sapphira for the palace explosion that kills her mother. 

Fleeing the scene, Sapphira chases the one person in Dachai not trying to arrest her: the outlaw who pulled her from the wreckage before scrambling to his black-market starship. Galen may or may not have rebel links—or basic manners—but he’s Sapphira’s only ticket out of the capital, to regroup and devise a way to meet the rebels’ demand: cough up a Wisheart heirloom Sapphira’s never heard of, or Dachai will be decimated.

After crash-landing on an archaic world with links to Sapphira’s late grandfather, tailed by bounty hunters through a magical wilderness, the elusive outlaw and the excluded First Daughter must learn to trust each other, and themselves. As they close in on her family’s secret, Sapphira fears choosing between her growing feelings for Galen and clearing her name. But a harder choice remains. With the rebels’ deadline to Dachai’s destruction nearing, Sapphira must wield her storytelling power for one last, great escape: to rewrite the Wisheart legacy, or expose it. 


(formerly known as: A SONG OF NEVERSEA)

Blending the worldbuilding of CRESCENT CITY with the emotional arc of ELEANOR OLIPHANT and THIS TIME TOMORROW, a multi-POV portal fantasy that reads like a space opera-Labyrinth starring Fleabag.

How do you evict a siren from your head? You could endure his silhouette haunting your periphery for thirteen years, blurring and shifting like shadows on water during your most pivotal moments, sabotaging your hopes of friends, lovers, a career—a normal life. Then, when he finally sings, follow his song down a Cornish mineshaft only to wake in his realm of living folklore edging toward civil war.


That works for Luma Grey. That’s when he vanishes. The problem is, whatever crack Luma’s squeezed through between realms has disappeared, too.


According to the wary locals, all passages between Eidolia and the humanlands sealed shut decades ago. The thousands of Eidols who were visiting the humanlands that day have been trapped ever since, while Luma’s stumbled through like an inept Trojan horse. All of Eidolia wants to know how Luma got here; all Luma cares about is getting home, especially when her presence awakens Eidolia’s deadliest enemy.


Most Eidols blame humans for the sealed wall. Some demand Luma’s death in hopes of reopening it. Fleeing those keen to test this theory, Luma befriends fellow outcasts including a powerless sylph, a landlocked kelpie, and a chaotic-neutral cockatrice. For the first time she feels understood, and begins to want more than just her own life pieced back together. When they hatch a plan for breaking open the wall, Luma must choose: return to the humanlands, forever haunted by the siren’s mystery and the friends she’s left behind, or find the siren and face the mess they’ve caused, along with her growing fear of what he really is.

Upper YA historical fantasy with a speculative twist (YA OUTLANDER meets NEVER LET ME GO), for fans of Marie Lu and Leigh Bardugo. 93,000 words.

In 2138, 18-year-old apprentice historian Bryn MacBride makes a discovery in the ruins outside town that could change her commune’s future: an underground door. An entrance to the London Underground, contaminated and forgotten after a magical disaster destroyed the city. After five years of working beside her best friend and mentor Thomas, Bryn’s sure this will secure her a place in their history books. But hours after informing Thomas, Bryn finds their research office ablaze, with Thomas inside.


Days before, Thomas had made his own discovery, that their idyllic artisan commune Cimmersea was built on a dark secret. Desperate to protect Thomas’s work from a council who would silence truth to protect their privileged lifestyle, Bryn flees to the Underground, eventually emerging outside Cimmersea’s borders—in the year 1692.


Seeking answers among her ancestors in the Scottish Highlands, Bryn must untangle Cimmersea’s sinister link to the past while questioning everything her beloved mentor believed. But the bloody Glencoe Massacre looms, giving Bryn a choice: bring help back to a future that could imprison her, or leave her legacy in a breathtaking past that tempts her to defy all they held sacred.

Upper YA/crossover fantasy for fans of Laini Taylor, Rachel Vincent, and Holly Black. 86,000 words.

Elowen has learned the hard way to bury her strange truth, despite longing for someone to accept it—to accept her, in spite of it. In every dream, every night, she sees through the eyes of Storie, a creature whose peaceful race in the realm called Eidolia is nothing like human folklore has painted them. But the utter weirdness of Elowen's vivid dreams splintered her family and shattered her first real relationship, so she's told no one else—not even best friend Brie. Yet with their last seaside summer together approaching, Elowen considers finally confiding in her. Until the Eidolian tattoo appears on her scalp.

Flesh-and-blood Eidol beings soon emerge around the globe, and worldwide panic blooms. Possessing a visible link she can't explain, with her footsteps haunted by shadows that hiss threats against Storie and any who'd help her, Elowen flees her Cornish hometown only to make a shocking discovery.

Elowen was Storie. Eighteen years ago she became a changeling, sacrificing her first life to take over a dying human child's body on a mission vital to Eidolia's peace. With fragmented memories and desperation to halt the spreading chaos—and protect Brie—Elowen must resume Storie's mission. Even if it means risking the only human friendship she's ever known.
