I’m a fantasy enthusiast. I definitely have a heavy leaning toward high fantasy, and can still remember the first time I read The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley. That book inspired me and introduced me to my love of fantasy. I’ve been a book junkie ever since. Another one of my favorites as a kid was Animorphs by K. A. Applegate and Goosebumps by R.L. Stine. I used to have dozens of boxes filled with the entire series to both, but they’ve since been donated to various places.
My dream is to one day write a book as meaningful to someone else as those books were to me.
YA High Fantasy
Sixteen-year-old tomb raider Juliette de Chesne is intent on liberating her home kingdom, but runs into the first of many obstacles when she falls in love with the brooding sorcerer responsible for its fall.
Seventeen-year-old Juliette de Chesne is a resistance fighter with a wit as sharp as her rapier and nothing left to lose after a strange illness devastates her people. To help fund the effort to free her home city from occupation by a rival kingdom, she steals magic items from tombs.
When Juliette ventures into the ruins of an ancient city, she avails herself of a hidden treasure hoard. But the relics turn out to belong to Fellrin, a presumed dead sorcerer who was exiled and had his powers sealed after a spell went horribly wrong. Fellrin catches Juliette and offers her a deal: if she breaks the seal on his powers, he’ll lend his magic to the resistance. The catch? To break the seal requires stealing a relic from the only other sorcerer left alive, and his powers are still intact.
As Juliette attempts the most difficult heist of her life, she falls for Fellrin. Though he is as humorless and stoic as the shriveled up corpses Juliette steals from, he’s also irritatingly sexy and noble. He wants his powers restored so he can resume his research into healing magic.
However, when Juliette discovers Fellrin’s last experiment caused the very illness which killed thousands of her people, she must choose: take revenge on the man she’s fallen for, or use his magic to free her kingdom and hope history does not repeat itself.
