“… Fun and sensual fantasy [with] magnetic characters.” ―Publishers Weekly “The Scythian Trials crackles with life, hums with heart, and pounds with action for one hell of a read.” ―San Francisco Book Review “If you loved the Hunger Games and Divergent and just all around kicka$$ characters with an amazing storyline then you will love this.” ―Books With Jess
Descendants of the Amazons, the Scythians work alongside prominent governments but answer to no one. Warriors living on the fringe of civilization, they live by one credo: Strength through Equality. Power through Knowledge.
Nya Thalestris is the brightest Scythian of her generation. Strong, capable, ruthless, she is sure to earn a spot in the Trials, a time-honored mating ritual responsible for the evolution of her species.
Abducted by their sworn enemy, the Drahzda, Nya is forever altered and spirals out of control. The Society sends in Jax Nickius. Infamous psychologist and one of the most brutal warriors of their kind, he discovers triggers planted in Nya’s mind. As Nya solidifies her spot in the Trials, Jax develops a plan to help—while pursuing her as a mate. But, Nya’s attraction to Jax is at war with her instinct to never let anyone get too close.
During the Trials, Nya’s repressed memories surface, revealing a new enemy—one from inside the consulate walls—and a traitorous alliance on the horizon that could irrevocably change the course of history.
Since before the Bronze Age, the Society has managed to safeguard humanity from itself … until now.

1. What is on your nightstand?
An alarm clock, a diffuser, and a kindle.
2. What author would you totally fan?
JR Ward, Stephen R. Donaldson, Maya Angelou (if she were still with us), and Penny Reid. Weird combo, I know, but I’m an eclectic reader.
3. What makes you cringe?
Elitism. I absolutely can’t stand it when one person feels they are better than someone else.
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I obsessively plot out each book and then freak out when the story veers in a different direction. This is one of the reasons it takes me a year to write a book.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
Envelop. I love that word. That and swathe, encase, limned, and luminous. I love the way they roll off the tongue.
The one closest to the camera is Charlie. He’s an Australian Shephard, Golden Retriever mix who loves to catch frisbees and eat green peppers. Lucy is a rescue hound in the back nestled in pillows because her blanket is in the wash. She is fourteen and has been by my side since the beginning of my writing journey. I love them more than air!
