Project Runway meets Mulan in this sweeping YA fantasy about a young girl who poses as a boy to compete for the role of imperial tailor and embarks on an impossible journey to sew three magic dresses, from the sun, the moon, and the stars.

Maia Tamarin dreams of becoming the greatest tailor in the land, but as a girl, the best she can hope for is to marry well. When a royal messenger summons her ailing father, once a tailor of renown, to court, Maia poses as a boy and takes his place. She knows her life is forfeit if her secret is discovered, but she’ll take that risk to achieve her dream and save her family from ruin. There’s just one catch: Maia is one of twelve tailors vying for the job.

Backstabbing and lies run rampant as the tailors compete in challenges to prove their artistry and skill. Maia’s task is further complicated when she draws the attention of the court magician, Edan, whose piercing eyes seem to see straight through her disguise.

And nothing could have prepared her for the final challenge: to sew three magic gowns for the emperor’s reluctant bride-to-be, from the laughter of the sun, the tears of the moon, and the blood of stars. With this impossible task before her, she embarks on a journey to the far reaches of the kingdom, seeking the sun, the moon, and the stars, and finding more than she ever could have imagined.

Rumpel’s Redemption

Dark elf, Kardiya Von Fiddlestrum, wants an adventure. When she gets kidnapped by Rumpel Stiltskin and taken to a foreign magical realm, she’s sure it wasn’t the kind of adventure she was looking for. Rumpel Stiltskin wants revenge on Kardiya’s grandmother for cursing him to become a goblin. When he’s freed from the curse and returns to his true form—that of a handsome young prince—Rumpel searches out Kardiya, knowing she’s the only person who can help him. But revenge isn’t Rumpel’s only motivation. The reason he bargained with Kardiya’s grandmother in the first place was to find the child of the dark elves who wears a magical pendant. Only she can save his home which has been infiltrated by the Sa’hadov. Kardiya is the one mentioned in prophecy, but she refuses to cooperate. Until she learns the truth.

If she fails to stop the Sa’hadov, their taint will spread to all lands and poison not only Rumpel’s home, but hers as well. Agreeing to help her kidnapper wasn’t her first choice—but neither was falling in love with him.

Grave Expectations

In this clever reimagining of Charles Dickens’s life, he and fiance Kate Hogarth must solve the murder of a spinster wearing a wedding gown…

London, June 1835: In the interest of being a good neighbor, Charles checks in on Miss Haverstock, the elderly spinster who resides in the flat above his. But as the young journalist and his fiance Kate ascend the stairs, they are assaulted by the unmistakable smell of death. Upon entering the woman’s quarters, they find her decomposing corpse propped up, adorned in a faded gown that looks like it could have been her wedding dress, had she been married. A murderer has set the stage. But to what purpose?

As news of an escaped convict from Coldbath Fields reaches the couple, Charles reasonably expects the prisoner, Ned Blood, may be responsible. But Kate suspects more personal motives, given the time and effort in dressing the victim. When a local blacksmith is found with cut manacles in his shop and arrested, his distraught wife begs Charles and Kate to help. At the inquest, they are surprised to meet Miss Haverstock’s cold and haughty foster daughter, shadowed by her miserably besotted companion. Secrets shrouded by the old woman’s past may hold the answers to this web of mystery. But Charles and Kate will have to risk their lives to unveil the truth . . .

Expected publication:  July 30, 2019
