THE WORKS

 

Hi! Welcome to my raven. Yes, you heard that right. This is my raven. Or at least it is if you listen to the Mad Hatter in Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures inWonderland.

 

But since you neither resemble Alice nor look lost, I'll simply call this my writing desk. Go ahead and look over my shoulder to see what I've been up to. You can also offer some friendly comments because there's nothing I enjoy more than hearing from readers.

 

Without further ado, I present to you...

3 Earths

GENRE: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Dystopian 

 

When Earth ended, three worlds began.

As far back as anyone can remember, humanity has been divided into three different breeds: Empyreans, Tritonians, and Terrans. The first are the epitome of wisdom; aloft on their floating fortress, they are the keepers of light, last living legacies of a once great species. The second are water-breathers who prefer a life of neutrality and isolation, sunk in the depths of their underwater kingdom. The third have been cast away to a cold and dark life on the blighted earth, shunning the light to dwell underground.

Into these three worlds, Riktor, Alaric, and Aerie are born. Twin brothers, two lovers, and one woman whose heart is torn between them. 

But a war is brewing among the three nations. To tip the scales, a new source of power rises after lying dormant for decades. Within our heroes’ own genetic makeup, legends have been written and destinies are waiting to be fulfilled.

IT'S NOT A JOURNEY. IT'S A DESTINATION. 

 

When Nate Esposito dies in a diving accident, he realizes he isn’t ready to leave everything behind, including his girlfriend and soulmate Samantha. He falls into an underworld prison where the only way out is through an eccentric reaper named Septimus Rex. As head reaper, Septimus leads an army of supernatural Crows tasked with the cold deportation of overstaying spirits from the human realm.

 

The fates smile on Nate because the head reaper has problems of his own. He has fallen in love with a mortal girl; an abhorrent sign of weakness that, if discovered by the Crows, will start a power struggle in hell. With Nate’s help, Septimus must now attempt to confess his feelings to the girl of his dreams so he can go back to being devoid of human sentiment.

 

Nate is reincarnated as a kitsune reaper and hatches an escape plan to the surface world. But he finds that things in the underworld are not what they seem and Septimus’ problems run deeper, somehow even linked to Nate’s own mysterious past.
