Dragon Hoard and Other Tales of Faerie

Dragon Hoard ebook cover 2017

Discover twelve tales of Faerie…and experience its paradox–both close and inaccessible–peopled with heroes, rogues, and ciphers.

A modern dragon who desires more than mere gold,

A troll who longs for the kiss of sunlight on his skin,

Pixies who won’t let breaking-and-entering deter them from their just revenge,

A gargoyle who yearns to safeguard not only a church but a young girl as well,

And a woman who bargains for Faerie help—only to be confronted with a cost that is more than she can bear to pay.

Come join them.

Praise for Dragon Hoard:

“This was a wonderful adventure! … Her writing is natural and flowing, and I was aching to read more when I was done.” Christy Nicholas, author of Legacy of Luck


“If you’re into twisted fairy tales, contemporary fantasy, and mythology, this short-story collection is for you. If not, you’ll probably still enjoy it.

The author’s writing is addictive. It flows like an undercurrent and pulls you along until you’re sucked into the story with no chance of escape.”  Pasty Alien


“Dragon Hoard is straightforward, easy to read. It is fairy tales of old, stripped of archaic language and dropped into modern settings, with tropes twisted in amusing ways fit for the 21st century.” Aaron Perry


“Dragon Hoard and Other Tales of Faerie provides a modern twist on the traditional faerie tales of multiple cultures, with clever twists and turns throughout. Vivid writing and imaginative settings serve to enhance plots that stray from the expected, often leading to conclusions that are either humorous or touching–or both. These stories are as varied and delightful as the original tales from which they were cast, even while turning the beloved old myths on their heads, and I recommend them to anyone who loves fantasy sans stereotypes.” Anonymous Amazon customer
