Synopsis | Teaser | The Series | About the Author | Giveaway


Jayne Sparks, a potty-mouthed, rebellious seventeen-year-old and her best friend, shy and bookish Tony Green, have a pretty typical high school existence, until several seemingly unrelated incidents converge, causing a cascade of events that change their lives forever.

Jayne and Tony, together with a group of runaway teens, are hijacked and sent into a forest, where nothing and no one are as they seem.

Who will emerge triumphant? And what will they be when they do?

Teaser: Excerpt

     I couldn’t take much more of the high school nonsense. I felt like I wasn’t supposed to be there. Where would I be if I weren’t there? ... I don’t know. All I did know was I was in the middle of all that crap, going to class, taking tests - but I was on autopilot, going through the motions, waiting for life to start happening.
     Sitting in World History and bored out of my mind, I was looking at a girl one row over who was the polar opposite of me. She was staring attentively at the teacher, her pen poised above an already nearly full page of notes, eager to write down every nugget of educational wisdom he was throwing our way. She loved high school, and she had big plans for moving on to college next year. She had cheer practice after school and a boyfriend named Mike who played wide receiver on the football team. Ugh.
     I owned a pen. I probably had some paper somewhere in my backpack too. That day, however, I was using my pen to draw symbols all over my right hand - temporary tattoos. I write and eat with my left hand but do just about everything else with my right. My own body was confused with what it was supposed to do.
     I was in the minority in that school. It seemed like just about everyone else knew exactly what they were doing now and what they were going to be doing until the day they died. Me? I didn’t have a clue. All I knew was this wasn’t it.

Call to Arms [2]

Follow Jayne Sparks, the (still) potty-mouthed seventeen-year-old and newly changed elemental fae and her friends -an incubus, a daemon, a green elf, a water sprite and a pixie- as they struggle to find their places in the Light Fae community of the Green Forest and prepare for the upcoming battle against the Dark Fae.

[Published 5 March 2012, 350 pages]

Darkness & Light [3]

The animosity between Darkness & Light continues to grow, as do Jayne's supernatural, elemental abilities in the Green Forest.

Long-lost friends arrive, new friends leave, passion burns, and mysteries abound. What is Light and what is Dark? Who can the Light Fae trust? Who will be left standing in the end and whose side will they be on?

Nothing is ever as it seems, and all is fair in love and War of the Fae.

[Published 29 March 2012, 390 pages]

New World Order [4]

Will the fae be able to make the sacrifices they must to survive?

Jayne Sparks and her Light Fae changeling friends face off in the final battle against their enemies. But the identy of their true enemies isn't as clear as it once was.  Are they the ones breaking down their doors ... or perhaps another entity, hiding in the shadows?

Friends come and go, bridges burned are rebuilt, love is lost and found.

The survival of the fae depends on the answer to one question: Which burns hotter ... hatred or hope?

[Published 27 April 2012, 368 pages]

After the Fall [5]

[Formerly titled Clash of the Otherworlds, Book 1]

The Light and Dark Fae have come together, a tenuous peace formed at the urging of the Overworld.

Potty-mouthed teen, Jayne Sparks, and her fellow changeling friends find themselves once again in the middle of a maelstrom of conflict, mystery, and magic that they must struggle to not only understand but overcome.

Jayne Sparks Blackthorn hereby cordially invites you to follow her into the Gray...

[Published 29 September 2012, 346 pages]

Between the Realms [6]

[Formerly titled Clash of the Otherworlds, Book 2]

Jayne Sparks Blackthorn continues her journey as a changeling member of the Fae living in the Green Forest.

Decisions have been made and the Fae Council has spoken. The chosen few must leave the Here and Now to undo the damage begun over a thousand years ago.

Loyalties are questioned. Intentions are suspect. Angels and demons, witches and werewolves, pixies and elves. Everyone has a secret it seems, and the bridge between the Light and Dark lies squarely in the Gray.

[Published 31 October 2012, 348 pages]

Portal Guardians [7]

[Formerly titled Clash of the Otherworlds, Book 3]

The fae assigned by the council —shadowed by Jayne the elemental and Spike the incubus— journeys to the Otherworlds, seeking the portal guardians.

An epic journey filled with danger, adventure, and revelations that even the most ancient fae do not expect.

Time Slipping [8]

Jayne and her crew of fae friends are off to Uamh An Ard-Achaidh, the High Pasture Cave in Torrin on the Isle of Skye, to fulfill her destiny as the companion to the portal guardian of the Underworld.
