Realms of Terswood

A fantasy novel

Review on Goodreads

I wrote Realms of Terswood because I had a story, world, and characters in my head and heart that I had to get out.

The Dedication

Many people’s help went into writing Realms of Terswood: my wonderfully helpful advanced readers, my editor Shannon Roberts, and most of all, my husband Aaron. But without one other, I may have never picked up writing again. I restarted my tae kwon do training as a reason to get out of the house. As IContinue reading “The Dedication”

It’s Not Digital Art

Archdruid Etharis

A cast of characters, from ancient archmages to the young svarters prince, play their roles in uncovering a centuries-old plot.

About the Author

Author, video gamer, martial artist, programmer

This book started over twenty years ago as a disjointed collection of video game fan fiction, around the same time that I briefly trained in taekwondo. I quit both when my grandmother passed away. More than seventeen years later, in my mid-thirties, I restarted my martial art instruction. As I neared my black belt testing, I thought of what other projects I started and never finished. As with Lone, that was a long list. It took close to three years but I ended up with a story and characters I enjoyed writing about. I have the people and places of Poas in my mind and through the magic of writing, I can invite others to join me there.
