Character Art: Sub-Captain Phillip

Excited to share this new character illustration

From Tales of the Black Rose Guard

a dark-fantasy series!

Illustration By: Barn-Swallow Art

Sub-Captain Phillip is second in command of both the Lorcan and Black Rose Guards.

A 2,000 year old knight, Phillip is both brave and fiercely loyal to both

the guard and those he is sworn to serve.

He is depicted here, standing on the immortal sands of the Muir Court

with an Arius blade strapped to his side.

A woman with no memory of her past. Another unable to forget. Both haunted by a sinister creature of roses and shadow with an unquenchable thirst for royal blood. Welcome to the world of the Black Rose. 


Six hundred years ago, Mara, the immortal captain of the Black Rose Guard, led her knights to their greatest victory: the annihilation of the Muir Court. For avenging a fallen princess, she was hailed a hero. Yet for Mara, the mirror reflected only a killer.

Haunted by the slaughter carried out in the name of honor and duty, Mara hoped she had fought her last battle. But when a mysterious girl arrives pleading for aid, Mara’s dream of peace shatters as the blood roses begin to bloom.

Determined to save the young woman for whom the long-dormant roses have awakened, Mara dons her ancient Arius blade, and prepares to once again lead her men into a fight from which they may never return.

All the while, Mara’s enemies prepare to exploit her greatest weakness: the life of her only love, Edward. Her sole warning is whispered in shadows: Beware the Silver Rose.

Forsaking the Dragon – Audiobook

Excited to announce

Forsaking the Dragon

is now available in audiobook format!

Seven thousand years ago, a lie was born to hide a destructive truth—a Kalleen princess defended her Amethystine love to her dying breath.

For millennia, Amethystine dragons have been banished from the Kalleen Kingdom, their very existence erased from the annals of history. But some claim in the icy wastelands to which they were exiled, the Amethystines survived and waited for an opportunity to reclaim their land and birthright.

To protect her kingdom from the wicked and powerful temples that challenge her rule, dragon queen Amelia ventures into the ice-swept mountains in search of legends. The path proves treacherous, and the dragons she seeks may be the greatest threat she has yet faced.

Accompanying Amelia on this journey, Conner will stop at nothing to protect her, hoping his devotion and loyalty will be enough to overcome the secrets and family legacy he has kept hidden from the woman he loves. As Amelia delves deeper into Amethystine lands, she must contend with the ancestral hatred from those her kingdom wronged centuries before, while finding a way to convince the Amethystines that if they fail to stand together both kingdoms will fall. To forge such an alliance, the Amethystine council demands a shocking price, one Amelia may not be willing to pay.
