Current Status: Published & Available
In May 2023, the literary magazine 300 Days of Sun published two of my poems in Volume 2, Issue 4: "Cakebox Baby" and "Felicidad." Both examine the stories behind names and their meanings.
Young Adult Fantasy
There is nothing Azaleanette loves more than the feeling of the wind beneath her wings. In two months, she will come of age in Avoren society, which includes becoming the mate of her childhood friend and accepting one of the most desirable--and miserable--jobs available. She knows her future as surely as she knows the grace of the Sky.
When Azal is sent to put out one of the mysterious fires at the edge of the forest, she flies into a human-made trap. However, the human prince frees her. To avoid a debt to a human dragging her from the Sky, she allows the prince to leave the forest unharmed.
News spreads of her act of mercy, and Azal is condemned by the community that raised her. Her only hope is to accept help from the same humans that have decimated her culture, even when that means pretending to court the prince she despises. As Azal fights to survive in a foreign culture, she faces threats from prying nobility, age-old prejudices, and even her own proud people. To start the new life she so desperately needs, Azal must overcome betrayal and fear while caught between opposite sides of a brewing war.
