Hidden in Blood & Shadows

The Erinyes came from the Godblood that spilled from the sky in the Endless War. They were born of blood and darkness and knew only fury…Or so the humans say. The gods are long gone, but their cursed children still walk the earth. Harper had never felt like she belonged anywhere. She was an outsider among her own kind and hated by the humans. Now, someone was killing Erinyes and leaving behind strange ritualistic markings. If Harper ever hoped to follow in her father’s footsteps, she needed to figure out who was doing the killing and why. She wasn’t the only one investigating the murders. Gage was looking for justice, or vengeance. He wasn’t sure he knew the difference anymore. Someone was targeting his family, and if he couldn’t let go of his anger, he would lose even more than he already had. Together, they were caught in a mystery that had been hidden for a long time. How exactly did the Endless War end? Some secrets were better left forgotten, as they may not survive the answers they find. An urban fantasy series about the family we choose, the secrets we keep, and how far we would go to protect them both.

Pink Punch

Kris Mahrone’s parents have separated, and she can’t understand why – until she discovers her mother has been moonlighting as Northberg’s latest superhero, Pink Punch. With Dad a detective on the police’s Vigilante Crimes Unit? Yup. Sounds like irreconcilable differences.

Pink Punch is investigating Techcorp’s plans to control the city’s police force. She swears Kris to secrecy, moments before being caught in an explosion that puts her into a coma. Kris is determined to find those responsible for hurting her mother, but with no one willing to investigate a plot that also places her father in danger, she puts on Pink’s power-armour and slips into the superhero’s role. As Pink Punch, she meets Northberg’s other supers, including Zero K, an energetic boy with ice powers, who, irritatingly, turns into a blundering fanboy whenever Pink is around. And Kris will need their help. Because the Boss, CEO of Techcorp, considers Pink’s suit her property, and she wants it back.

Meanwhile, Kris’ father holds Pink responsible for his wife’s coma. He wants answers and he’ll do whatever it takes – even if that means becoming the guinea pig for Techcorp’s newest power-armour, designed to be a match for Pink Punch, punch for punch.

Islanders: The Pacific Chronicles

“I loved the combination of history, lore, education, entertainment…and I absolutely loved Eleu and Molawa.” -Tara Lewis, former Director, Disney Publishing Worldwide
“Islanders comes steeped in Hawaiian culture, mythology, and legends.” -D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer for Midwest Book Review
“Enormously entertaining, [the] tale deeply respects the myths that have inspired it.” -Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers’ Favorite
“Islanders is clearly a product of love… love of nature, love of Hawaii, and love of good storytelling.” -Reviewed by Jake Vander Ark, author of Put the Cat In the Oven Before You Describe the Kitchen: A Concise, No-Bull Guide To Writing Fiction

When eleven-year-old Kilikina and her brother, fourteen-year-old Kaimana, are unknowingly given access to a hidden and legendary world in their native O’ahu in the Hawaiian islands, they are also gifted with an unexpected set of magical abilities. Soon, they find themselves on an adventure, one in which they experience the interconnectedness of the world around them and begin to learn firsthand about the islands’ vast history and traditions.

Guided by a quirky and silly duo from a mythical race of tiny people, the siblings soon learn they have been chosen to help protect their island and way of life from a great evil. Are they up to the challenge?


Meet James Eldridge

Children’s book author James Eldridge and his illustrator brother Richard Eldridge were raised in Hawaii and were inspired to bring the beauty and mythology of their homeland to young readers with their middle-grade fantasy novel, Islanders, the first installment in The Pacific Chronicles series. James is married to the lovely, real-life Kilikina and together they have four children. Richard is married to his childhood friend, and together they have their own island girl.

After a near-fatal experience with COVID in 2021, including forty-five days on a ventilator in the ICU, multiple blood transfusions, being in an induced coma and having several live-saving surgeries, James’s road to recovery was both mentally and physically challenging. He and his brother worked together to bring this story to life, using their home as a background, as a way to focus on something creative and inspiring to help James put the nightmare of COVID behind him.

James and Richard explain that there is a fascinating concept of duality in the animal world in Hawaii: there are native species and invasive species, yet many people (especially visitors) cannot tell the difference. For their series, they enjoy using the idea that these species are secretly at war with each other for control of the island and nearly no humans are aware of it except for a chosen few.

The brothers hope their young readers come away from their stories having tasted a small part of the beautiful Hawaiian language, the soft strength and humor of its culture, a respect for its history, and a desire to visit. James now lives in Bentonville, Arkansas, while Richard lives in Honolulu, Hawaii. Islanders, book one in The Pacific Chronicles series, is their debut novel.
