About Me and My Fiction:

Hello and welcome to my FictionPress account. I am a dark fantasy author, currently working on my third and fourth novels in the Elf Gate series. And I've decided I want to make the first three books available as a web serial, for a limited time, for free.

Elf Gate Series, Book 1: The Changeling is a portal tale about an English girl who gets abducted by a mysterious, bone-white elf. She is taken to the hidden realm by mistake, only to find out that humans are not welcome there, and she has no way back. The elf responsible for her abduction has problems of his own. He must avoid the bounty hunters looking for them, protect his friends and family from a civil war that is brewing, and find out what has happened to the ancient gates to make them targets of what appears to be necromantic sabotage. Who exactly is the changeling here? And can they learn to tolerate each other enough to work together to figure this out, so that she can go home?

Elf Gate Series, Book 2: The Fledgling is a continuation of the first book. Trizryn struggles with being a new vampire and telling Aija about their shared curse, so he enlists her aid in plans to steal his summoner's scroll. But when Kassí does her own investigation on their gate problems, she turns up more than one dangerous secret and leads the camp at Absin'navad to discover it has more immediate worries than being found by a Derra Eirlyn summoner.

Elf Gate Series, Book 3: The Darkling picks up right where the previous book ended. Trizryn must get his stolen documents to the Deep Warrens for translation if he ever hopes to find out what's wrong with the malfunctioning elf gates. Accepting the fae realm is a beautiful but cruel place, Aija pushes herself and her companions toward a gruesome discovery that leads her to believe she is not alone in the elven kingdom. And they are shocked to learn secrets about Trizryn's heritage even he didn't know.

Elf Gate Series, Book 4: The Atheling ... With the latest dragon attack, Aija lost another gate, but learned she is not the only human in the fae realm. She and Trizryn must now repair an old airship to rescue the refugees in the ruins of Absin'navad. That means facing off against the necromancer Ilisram ... if the assassin Mahntarei doesn't seek vengeance on both of them first.

Elf Gate Series, Book 5: The Dragonling ... Brinnan is besieged. The Second Dragon War has begun with risen elders burning down the elven capital. All that's left of Trizryn's inheritance from his mother is an abandoned, old castle in an Other World. ... Or is it?

While offering his castle as a new safehouse to Reznetha'ir and the refugees of Absin'navad, Trizryn and Aija follow up on a quest to find another human in the fae world, in hopes of locating another elf gate to the human world before the elven world is torn apart and every gate is lost. But when the castle is attacked by conspirators, and a precious dragon egg falls into Aija's arms, she and the other refugees must do their best to protect the dragonling until its mother returns. Meanwhile, Trizryn's mother's journals hold the final pieces of the puzzle surrounding his origins, but they hold the key to unlocking not only his design, but the elf gates of the past ... and the future.
