Praise for ISAN Series
"Addictive and impossible to put it down!" --Addison Moore, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Captivating from the very beginning, this sci-fi novel explores issues of autonomy and survival in a world where there are few remaining citizens after meteors crashed into Earth … this thrilling dystopian drama has a splash of romance and tons of action. The fast-paced chapters will engage reluctant readers and fans of postapocalyptic scenarios.” --School Library Journal
"ISAN will leave readers breathless with anticipation as they race through each exciting page." --Tiffany King, USA Today Bestselling Author
While searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum on the black market, Ava uncovers valuable intel that may help the rebels in their fight to bring down ISAN—the location of a hidden facility. But first, the insurgents must find the female citizens unexpectedly displaying powers without use of the Helix serum before ISAN captures them. As the rebels join forces with other sectors, ISAN plans their destruction by using someone they don’t suspect at the rebel home base: a traitor within.

A Legends of Havenwood Falls Novella
Prequel to the #1 Amazon LGBT Fantasy Bestseller, OF SALT AND STARS
Release Date December 6, 2019
ABOUT THE BOOK
Before there was a curse, there was a wish.
For generations, Noelani has lived in the forest of Havenwood Falls, bestowing blessings and good fortune on all who drink from the waters of her well. Over the years, she has been visited by hundreds of blushing brides and aging widows who crave her magic, but never has she met a heart as pure as that of Stella Malloy—or as dark as that of her fiancé, Peter Heilen. When the couple arrives in Havenwood Falls in the autumn of 1993, the warm waters of Noelani’s well begin to run cold, and a bitter chill sets into the naiad’s heart as the forest darkens around her.
When Stella and Peter receive a postcard from the picturesque town of Havenwood Falls with an invite for Stella to sing at the Haven Saloon, the couple decides to skip the big wedding and elope. The more Stella falls in love with the town, the stranger Peter begins to act. After hearing stories of the magic, love-imbued waters of Noelani’s well, Stella believes it may be the only way to save her love from his dark path and return Peter’s heart to her. Little does she know that the wish she casts at the water’s edge may doom them all.

ABOut HAvenwood Falls
There's always something new happening in Havenwood Falls! This week the collective announced its newest edition: the Sun and Moon Academy, with the first installment--"Fall Semester" already on its way.
About the Sun & Moon Academy
For more than a hundred years, Sun & Moon Academy has taught the supernatural youth of Havenwood Falls, but it’s now expanding to the brand-new College of Supernatural Guardians—an elite training program for a covert army. After a series of difficult trials to test their worthiness, only the top tier of applicants are admitted to the hidden college under the mountain.
With a powerful mix of shifters, witches, vampires, fae, and others, this is no ordinary university, and with tough classes and combat training, it’s not the usual college life. Still, ten of SMA’s first students find a way to forge friendships, ignite rivalries, and discover that there’s always room for romance. After all, no other place in the world teems with such a sexy fusion of brains and badassery.
Sun & Moon Academy: Fall Semester

About the Book
TWO WOMEN, ONE LOVE, AND A CURSE LURKING IN DEEP, DARK WATERS
For as long as she can remember, Maris Heilen has been haunted by dreams of a beautiful woman beckoning to her from beneath the water. These dreams have been Maris’ only constant; she’s lived her life like a leaf caught in the rushing tide: no rules, no commitments, and no long-term lovers, either—just a string of broken hearts that have tried to anchor her unwilling heart to the earth. When, following the mysterious death of her estranged father, her dreams take on a new sense of urgency and her boyfriend proposes, Maris knows its time to uproot and keep moving, though the only direction she can think to go is west, toward the water—toward her.
When instead Maris finds herself drawn to a surreal little town high in the Colorado Mountains, she can’t shake the feeling her dream might be much closer to reality than she could have imagined. But, when she discovers her past is linked to a legend even more haunted than her dreams—and that the woman she’s been dreaming about is not only real but in danger of being lost to an unfathomable darkness—Maris becomes determined to outshine the evil that has crept into a small corner of a forgotten forest of Havenwood Falls.
