AGES OF AENYA NOVEL - PAPERBACK
Hunger drove her from home. Invasion from his. They are the last Ilmar, naked savages . . . Heroes. Discover a world with two moons and one Sea, where night and day can last forever and magic is inseparable from science. Journey to a place where cities wage wars for eons, religions are founded by time traveling historians, and heroes wear nothing but sky. Xandr is a recluse and a wanderer. Thelana, having lost her family to famine, survives in the slums as a thief. They are the last of the Ilmar, primitives shunned by society. But when a star falls from the heavens, only the secrets guarded by their people can save civilization from ruin. With the aid of Grimosse, an over-protective golem, and Emma, a young witch who talks to ravens, Xandr and Thelana must race to the frozen peaks of the Pewter Mountains before a second cataclysm reshapes their world.From age six, I knew that I wanted to be a writer. When I turned nine, I dragged my father to DC Comics headquarters in New York City to promote my superhero concept, the Red Panther. At fourteen, I was querying publishers for my Greek demigod anthology series, and I finished my first full length novel, The Nomad, in high school. I earned my BA in English from the University of South Florida, where I helped as a tutor, and ran a fan-fiction site featuring works by a plethora of aspiring writers. My fiction has earned a small but loyal fan base, and a number of accolades, including runner-up for the prestigious Mary Wollstonecraft Award for my short story, The Gorgon's Lover. In 2004, I released The Dark Age of Enya, a precursor to the Aenya series. The world of Aenya, its heroes and its history, has occupied my brain for over fifteen years, and continues to be an ongoing passion. The first in the series, Ages of Aenya, was released in 2017.
