Previews of Fionuir's Mural and Dark Water

I've put the first chapters of my sword and sorcery novel, Fionuir's Mural, and my paranormal romance novel, Dark Water, on my blogs for you to check out.

Fionúir’s Mural is the first book of the Purification Trilogy, a coming of age story in the swords and sorcery genre, an unforeseen hero’s quest set in a world called Eilir.

This is the story of a 13 year old boy in exile and out of favor who discovers himself the subject of a 250 year old mural painted by the prophetess Fionúir, depicting two famous historical battles and one that has yet to occur.  It is about the boy’s quest across foreign lands to discover who the other figures depicted alongside him in the mural are and what part they play in his life and in Fionúir’s prophecy.  It is about the boy discovering who he truly is and what he is capable of and mastering that knowledge to face his world to overcome adversity and defeat the enemies who would see him and his family dead.  He is helped by a dream companion who has been with him since his youth, a mentor, who turns out to be the spirit of one of the heroes of the first battle depicted in Fionúir’s Mural.  It is about breaking with tradition and doing what works, blazing a trail instead of following the beaten path.  It is about perseverance and honor.  It is about finding true friends and true love.  The time for the final battle of Purification approaches.  It about who dares… wins.

Dark Water is a personal empowerment story in the paranormal romance genre, the first book of the Dark Man Trilogy (2nd book Taming the Inferno and 3rd book Taming the Storm).

This is the story of 3 women from 3 generations of a family haunted since the 17th century. Their ancestor Katherine defeated an unwanted suitor and the sorcerer that was his accomplice, in doing so trapping the demon the sorcerer had summoned in this world to bend her to their will. Ever since this demon, the Dark Man, has haunted her descendants. 300 years later a family tragedy finally brings these 3 women together to fulfill their ancestor's prophecy that her descendants would one day defeat the Dark Man. But fate has brought them face to face with descendants of both their ancestor's suitor and his sorcerer, and the final battle for domination looms. They must decipher the meaning of the prophecy and use it to survive. In Taming the Tides Bea discovers her gift and her place in the prophecy with the help of her grandmother, aunt and cousin. It is about Bea learning to use her power to free herself from her family’s designs and the Dark Man. She must succeed to protect her new found love and her dreams of a future free of the Dark Man.
