The Harmony Scroll

cover

Every curse must have means to lift it…

Mythology fiction is a good academic topic. Stella Hunter has made it into a life-time pursuit. That’s why she insists that every mythological curse must have means to lift it…or so she hopes.

If she’s wrong, a child will live his life teetering on the edge of the abyss. It’s why she stubbornly insists that there is hope, even when all evidence points to the contrary.

This time, however, the artifact that has the power to remove the curse is as controversial as the history surrounding it. It is not ancient. Merely historical. And the Vatican has spent centuries denying its existence—or its magical power. Those church historians who dare to include any information about its existence in their books are excommunicated—and ultimately perish in accidents. Stella is given a warning to cease her pursuit when mere minutes after she and her family leave her friend’s house, it goes up in flames.

From Rome to the French Riviera and across the Channel to an obscure village in England, where a shady US industrialist plans to join his corporate empire with that of a French aristocrat known as a terrorist financier, the quest turns into a pulse-pounding action.

Unlike most supernatural thriller books, this page-turning adventure involves not just Carter and Stella but their adopted son, Gabriel, who has no idea just how unique he is.

Then suddenly, the trail of the artifact that the Vatican wants so badly to destroy, they send one of the ‘dead-and-buried’ assassins after Stella and Carter, goes cold. It stops abruptly in a library of a young British aristocrat, who’s just sold his ancestral seat due to bankruptcy.

The Harmony Scroll is the second book in the Peacetaker series. If you like spiritual thriller books that are also a page turner, similar to Dan Brown, James Rollins and Paula Wynne’s The Sacred Symbol, you’ll love this second installment of the Peacetaker tale.

Flames Over Frosthelm

cover

An Investigation Gone Awry
Sometimes, your case takes a left turn. Or three or four. Marten Mingenstern and Boog Eggstrom are provisional inspectors, fresh out of Inquisitor’s Guild training and eager to prove themselves. Assigned the mundane task of tracking down stolen jewels, they instead uncover a mysterious cult set on destroying the city. After a thief explodes, they earn the enmity of a vicious noble, the Chief Inquisitor gets bought off and goes rogue, they are seized by barbarians, and they are sentenced to death at least a couple of times. In a final, frantic race with prophecy, they face ruthless fanatics, a city turned against them, and terrible forces long buried.

Flames Over Frosthelm is the first novel about the Inquisitor’s Guild, the investigative arm of the government of Frosthelm, a medieval city-state where criminals thrive, nobles scheme, and dark secrets lurk. Expect intrigue, mystery, swordplay, adventure, politics, romance, and the strong bonds of friendship. And a little magic along the way. Described as Princess Bride meets CSI, this new novel is a tale of classic adventure with a healthy dose of humor.

About the Book

Flames over Frosthelm is a full stand-alone novel clocking in at just over 120,000 words. Beginning, middle, and end, and no waiting for sequels to find out how the adventure ends (hear that, George R.R.?). There is swordplay, violence, death, and some romance, but the book does not include anything terribly hardcore. Think PG13 or Harry Potter and you’re probably in the right place.

Author’s Note

Ever since I started reading the Oz books and Andrew Lang’s fairy tale compendia in elementary school, I have loved fantasy. As I grew as a reader, I branched out into heroic and epic fantasy, starting with tales of heros like Conan and John Carter, set in places like Middle Earth and Witchworld. I also adored comedic fantasy, from Terry Pratchett to Neil Gaiman to a host of others, and my favorite tales were those where young heroes and heroines grew (or were forced) to play a role beyond their station, in many cases learning on the fly and making it up as they went along.

There are so many great authors working now trying out new ideas, pushing the fantasy genre in interesting new directions (some of them full of sparkly vampires or brooding antiheroes with anime hair). Despite all that innovation, it is hard for me to resist the draw of the classics. In this book, I’ve tried to weave together many of my favorite threads from the books of my childhood, to write the kind of book I have always loved reading, both at 13 and at 49. If I’ve succeeded, this story should provide a fun mix of humor and adventure, an introduction to a new world and a few new cultures, with derring-do and jokes along with some solid emotional touches, against a backdrop of a classic fantasy city, bustling with taverns, markets, nobles, politics, religions, thieves, and warriors.

There’s magic, but it’s limited to rare wizards, scholars, and artifacts, not pervasive, and it’s not well understood. Everybody you meet is a human with human goals – no elves, dwarves, dragons, trolls, or Klingons. Although moral complexity is fascinating, and even the best people are not always their best selves, in general I like my good guys good, my bad guys bad, and the stakes high. I hope you do too.

Please enjoy Flames Over Frosthelm.
