Welcome to My Dojo!

I write the Desolation Series, including the Desolation Trilogy . . .

and the Children of the Gods serials.

I also write Middle Grade fiction under the pen name
Alex Banks . . .

I'm also just a *little bit* crazy with too much going on but a whole lot of zeal for all of it!

Latest Release!

April 2014
Children of the Gods ~ YA dystopian
Episode One

Survive childhood. Live forever.
The Panacea vaccine is even more effective than hoped. In fact, it renders the individual immortal—if they can survive the Change.

But until the onset of adulthood, children are vulnerable to disease and death and are hosts to the live Panacea virus—the only thing that is deadly to adult humans.

Abandoned at birth, a small population of Littles live on the brink of death and depend on Sting and Crash for their survival. But the two Bigs are approaching adulthood, and the Change will soon be upon them. Even if they do survive, their best intentions may not.

Mad Max meets The Uglies in this gritty tale of survival. Kindle Only | Goodreads
