About this title


From the darkness comes a ship bearing a warrior priest who will change Aria's world in an ancient ceremony known as The Given. Aria, a Trancer, knows what's expected of her when Talon comes to her bed, but unexpectedly, their souls bond and she becomes pregnant. Still, duty demands that Talon leave her. But when her Tower of Sisters is attacked by the wicked Reaper Lord, Mako, and their infant son is taken, Talon is her only hope.

Talon abandoned his troubled past to become a Warrior. Duty demanded he abandon Aria once. He will not let it do so again. He knows the man who took their son and, despite Aria's belief the child lives, Talon knows different. He vows that Mako will die by Talon's sword. Now Talon and Aria travel in search of Mako—Talon for vengeance and Aria to rescue their son and keep Talon from committing murder and destroying their bond forever.

About the Author:

There are two things I have always loved: writing and science. In college I wanted to be a marine biologist, but there was the whole shark issue. I studied archeology instead. Why I didn't choose writing as a course of study is beyond me, but here I am.

I have always been a genre reader. From SF to romance to mystery-I love them all. So it wasn't a surprise that when I decided to write a book, that I wrote a genre as opposed to something more mainstream or literary.

One of my earliest books was a romance with an archaeological plot. After all, I have the experience. Not my best work, but it was a start, and the process of writing a book showed me not so much what I did know—but what I didn't.

Since that first attempt, I have studied both the process of writing as well as technique, found my 'voice', entered writing contests, joined writer's association and learned what it takes to get published: Hard Work, Patience, and a Kind Muse.

More important, I've discovered what matter to me as a writer who writes romantic fantasy. Is it about the "happy ending"? For me, no. What I find more interesting than a happy ending is the journey necessary to achieve it. Whether it's an emotional journey, a physical one or both, I want my characters to face situations stronger than themselves and obstacles that are not easily overcome.

Much like real life, I want them to learn that both success and failure have value. I want them to have a 'happy ending', not because it's required, but because they've worked for it.

And that is what, The Given, my first published novel is really about. The journey.
