Season of Sacrifice, Book 1: Blood of Azure
Courage is for the bold. It is not for Stone McLarin. He’s been in hiding for four seasons after being orphaned by the Taoiseach. He doesn’t care for the heroic antics of avenging his parent’s death or securing his freedom. He only desires one thing—to protect his sister’s life.
This proves challenging when his sister, Jaymes, possesses a rivaling power of decay to that of the tyrant ruler’s. She’s a threat to his dominance, and there will be no escaping his shadow.
When the Taoiseach manipulates his way into Jaymes’s life and steals her away, Stone has no choice but to follow. He must venture into the heart of the tyrant’s domain and figure out how to penetrate the impenetrable. And if he succeeds there, he will have to slay the most powerful man in Azure.
In a world ruled by decay, what chance does life stand?
Season of Sacrifice is part one of the Blood of Azure series—an epic fantasy full of grim encounters, heroic adventures, and a captivating world to explore.

Season of Suffering, Book 2: Blood of Azure
A villain in his own mind, Stone McLarin is labeled the hero for murdering a man.
Not only is Stone weighted down as a hero, but he’s idolized by the dominant religion, and he’s the sole protector of the knowledge of the ages. The pressure of the entire realm is on his shoulders.
Carib Reign, a shapeshifter building an army of immortals, plans to purge the Crimson Capital to find this hidden knowledge. His motive, to give the people of Azure the freedom they deserve.
With many adventures along the way, Stone will lead the charge to defend the Crimson Capital against the Immortal Army. Should he fail, anarchy is inevitable. Death for all Azure, a possibility.
Where there is life, death anticipates. But what if death is abandoned? Life will rebel.

Short Stories from the World of Azure
Temper is a controllable trait, but tangible consequences no longer have any effect on the inhabitants of Azure.
A gentle Greenthumb disapproves of the murderers saturating his colony. He won’t stand for it, and along the way he will discover the true potential of his talents and the cost involved with lusting for power.
This is a story of an orphan who cannot find passion in his world of decay. A story of a boy idolizing the Greenthumbs with their talent to enhance growth. A story of a boy’s first love interest. A story of wonder. But most of all, a story to overcome despair.
And there’s a screaming goat.
