About the Book

Every moment a lesson, every lesson a trap: the Artifice Academy is a hard place. Surrounded by cruelty and competition, 11-year-old Inga has only guts to get her through. Will defiance be enough? Mad science, friendship or betrayal, Black Sand, politics: Inga dares to hope, walking a tightrope of isolation between failure and madness.

A Bundle of parts 1-3 in the Artifice Academy series.

A tale in the Black Sands Saga.

About the Author

My books are dramatic steampunk. Fast-paced drama and action are very import to me: a reader should never be bored. If someone is taking the time to read, it should be engaging from the first sentence. Every book I write is intended to be one you can't put down.

I write for people who like a fantastic world, but one with believable characters and events, people in peril making hard decisions.

I am an INTJ and a classic Taurus, and I love to write!
