Bathed in the Blood (Oct. 2019)

When her four-year-old daughter disappears into thin air, rural housewife Nora Tripp’s illusion of a perfect life and perfect family shatters. For nearly fifteen years, Nora has hid the visions and voices from her husband and kids. Their family is the envy of the neighborhood, the picture of normal to anyone looking in. She doesn’t tell anyone about the bleeding walls or the intrusive guardian angel following her around, the black holes in her memories of childhood, or even the ghost of the vindictive dead boy who threatens her life. Every day is filled with secrets and lies as Nora struggles to maintain her facade around the people who matter to her most. 

When Nora decides to self-medicate her stress with alcohol and prescription pills, she passes out and wakes to find Callie missing. Pulled out of her head and back into the real world, Nora is forced to confront not only her own secrets, but the betrayal of those she trusted most. Nora discovers that while she was wrestling her own demons, her family was occupied spinning lies of their own. When Callie’s body is discovered wrapped up with a Bible, no one is safe from suspicion. Not even Nora. 

Desperate for answers, Nora spins out of control as she struggles to cope with Callie’s death. Fighting against both the people she loves and her own mind, Nora must piece together the fragmented memories of her past to make sense of her present crisis.

Erudition (Book One in the Fate-Marked Trilogy)

Eloria Whiting’s life exists inside a bubble. The world is ruined, Coshoria the only place left with fertile land after the Old World’s collapse. The gods continue to bless them and provide fertile crops with one caveat — the population must remain pure and devoted to the gods to repent for the sins of their ancestors. Or so the Temple says as they police their citizens’ every action. 

Ellie spends her days avoiding courtship and her nights curled up with forbidden books. Matrimony is around the corner, her freedom over. But when Ellie’s father falls ill, faith and prayer aren’t enough. In a challenge to everything she’s taught, Ellie must escape the wall that encloses Coshoria and venture outside in search of a flower rumored to heal. If caught by the Temple, she’ll be executed for treason. Her family’s name will be ruined, her sister disgraced from marriage. But if her father dies, the Temple takes possession of their lives. 

Ellie escapes the wall, only to discover her life has been a lie. The rest of society lives decades in the future, their technology far advanced. Ellie is captured by the King of Enoxis, a strange creature who calls himself a Divya. She learns humans have evolved, homosapiens no longer at the top of the food chain. Before she can panic, another bombshell lands in Ellie’s lap: she isn’t human. 

Tragedy strikes home, drawing the Temple’s attention to her absence. Ellie arrives in Coshoria just in time to see her family die. She returns to Enoxis with only one goal in mind: destroy the people who murdered her family. 

The king gives Ellie a decision to make: rule on the fate of Coshoria and determine if humanity is too flawed to be saved. Can Ellie find it in her to spare those who showed her family no mercy?
