Everyone knows a girl locked in a tower is supposed to wait for a prince—but that isn’t the destiny this girl has in mind.

Esme’s life has been filled with secrets. Her mother says she’s destined to be a queen, but she won’t say when. Or how. Or who Esme’s father is.
When Esme’s imprisoned by the evil fairy godmother, she only has more questions. Who is the young man guarding her? Why is he so interested in her father’s identity? And can she convince him to help her escape before she’s forced to marry whichever self-absorbed prince with a hero complex turns up to rescue her?
Since his father’s murder, Rory’s life has depended on keeping his identity secret. Working for the fairy godmother seems like a fair trade for his safety, until he’s sent to kidnap a girl who wears his family ring, a girl his father’s ghost is suspiciously quiet about.
Unraveling their connection might do more than save them both from the fairy godmother. It might save the fate of an entire queendom.
But can Esme achieve her destiny when Rory’s trying to avoid his own?

The Rogue and the Peasant is a fun, fairytale adventure that blends Hamlet with Rapunzel to make something completely new.

Everyone knows that a girl living a life of drudgery is meant to be saved by a prince—but what if one never arrives?

Donella has always dreamed of being rescued from her miserable life working in her father’s tavern, and when the fairy godmother offers to help her in exchange for one simple task, she readily accepts.
After all, how hard can it be to retrieve the heart of the Dead Prince?
Harder than she thinks, because the Dead Prince is very much alive and likes his heart right where it is.
Too scared to break her deal with the fairy godmother, Donella knows that outwitting her is the only way to save the Dead Prince’s life, but how can a humble waitress beat the wickedest witch of them all?
With her curiously intelligent pet wolf at her side, Donella will have to deal with haughty nobles, fight her way through a labyrinth, and overcome her own demons if she wants to save the prince and make her dream come true.

The Demi-Wolf and the Hunter is a fun, fairytale adventure that blends a less-murderous Macbeth with a platonic Beauty and the Beast retelling to make something completely new.
