Ambrosia Severn is a talented young orthopedic surgeon, and was about to branch off in an exciting new direction in the field of limb replacement, when she made that one fateful mistake—she took a seacoast vacation. The man who had watched her for fifteen years made sure she was dead—but only to the world. Niven is a descendant of Quen star-lords stranded on Earth thousands of years ago. His original mission directive was simple: Protect the beautiful and talented young doctor. He re-wrote the script according to his heart’s desire and today Amy is very much alive among the people whose ancestors came down from the stars. She is grateful to Niven’s kinfolk for offering her refuge when she most needed it, but she also thinks they’ve been hiding their homeland long enough. Especially now, when Niven’s two sons keep her busy, she doesn’t want them to grow up in the isolation of the elite island society. However, there is a difference between a measured exposure of the Island, and ripping off its cloaking screen. But that’s precisely what Persis, the ruthless siren wants to do—and in the process destroy the world that’s hosted her ancestors.

What inspires you to write?
Many things inspire me to write, but mostly, it's the place I was conceived, born and half-way raised up (I moved to the South at age 11.) Lots of things inspire me, the news, events around me and ideas that spring up from my surroundings. I'm a Native Oregonian and there's a fact everyone knows about our majestic state, it's deeply inspiring. I would recommend all people with elaborate imaginations visit my home state to truly experience what inspires me.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm a little bit of everything. Some stories (I ghostwrite also) are written based on an outline, others are simply by the pants. It entirely depends on the story. One of my best rated novels was written pantser style while another took me nearly ten years to finish. It just depends. For my clients and stories I have deadlines on though, I typically work off an outline.
How do you develop your characters?
Some characters are just themselves. What I mean by this is that they present to you their story, their desires, their personality. Everything about them is already as it should be and their story just takes you by possession and you write it out. This happened with one particular heroine of mine, Ivanka "Ivy" Jessup. Ivy's story was like a movie in my head, each line of dialogue murmured by the characters speaking. Each detail was described as I "saw" it in my head and yes, Ivy did sort of speak to me, but not directly. It was more like being a silent witness to her tale. But not every story works this way. Like people, they're all different.

There has been unrest among the people for over six hundred years. No one recalls what started the fighting, few recall the proper order of events. Everyone feels the effects of the unrest. Short lived queens and weak magic mean that any newcomer is viewed as a rival, that warriors must defend queens they can barely stand in order to protect the common people.
Aren knew when she begged to go that being finished at the palace was dangerous. Every lady is finished at court, no matter her rank or the worth of her title, and it was the opportunity to escape that Aren had been waiting for. Her plan was simple, keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday and then quietly slip away.
Av had spent almost a decade protecting Em, who he knows isn’t good for his family or the people. But she’s the only one who can hold the throne, a landscape magic which has become absolutely necessary for life to continue. Without a queen sitting the throne the land would fail and the common folk would suffer.a With Em on the throne at least, a majority of the people live regular lives.
Despite her best attempts, Aren finds herself in Av’s sights after she takes ill. The warrior’s response to her is an instinctive reaction Aren hadn’t counted on. Aren knows little about warriors, less about magic, and absolutely nothing about the throne.
She should have planned better.

300 years ago, the people dethroned their king and queen to prevent another tyranny. Now instead, the people nominate a State Head every three years and Altarn is the first female to hold the position. She’s used to tolerating the biases of men but Kaelin, the State Head of his territory, has declared her incompetent and has even, according to Altarn, threatened to steal her land – she believes he wants to make himself king. Believing she must “dethrone” Kaelin, Altarn rides to her last ally to ask for aid in the war against Kaelin she knows is coming. But in her absence an army launches an attack… and it’s not Kaelin’s.
Taking advantage of the startling situation, Kaelin kidnaps Altarn so he can take her land without her in the way. Soon realizing he needs her help to fight this army instead, he releases her and, since Altarn’s army is too small to win the war alone, she is forced to accept his help, but payment for his help will be her land. No one believes Kaelin is secretly trying to make himself king, so after the battle is won, alone in her knowledge and lacking allies, Altarn must become the War Queen of legend to dethrone another king… though she unexpectedly dethrones his heart instead.
