Praise for THE SCYTHIAN TRIALS
“… 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.

And now for a Tens List from the author!
Ten Favorite Songs.
This is an impossible question to answer. Music represents every facet of my life. I’m a musician by trade; I knowthousands of songs. It’s challenging tonarrow it down to just ten, But here’s my best shot. Some are heart-wrenching, some inspiring, some old school, some new. It’s an odd mix, but then again it truly reflects me.
Here you go!
This is me The Greatest Showmanhttps://youtu.be/CjxugyZCfuw Thissong speaks to me.
Good Old Days- https://youtu.be/1yYV9-KoSUM My best friend in the world, Corina, introduced me to this song. I love it!
Bring Him Home- Les Mis (the ColmWilkinson version)https://youtu.be/qsYnhVITf9E I played this song for two days straight when a child I taught and loved was in intensive care after being found unconscious in a house fire. We buried him three days later. I still cry every time I hear it, but I count it as a favorite because it reminds me that prayer is hope within itself, and we love as much as we grieve.
For good- Wicked (the KristenChenowith version)https://youtu.be/TZ0pXUb5jVU Thissong reminds us that people come into our lives and change us just through their spirit. Again, it’s deep, but oh, so meaningful.
Oh, Fortuna Carmina Burana (The Andre` Rieu version) HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/4QPU1VpPn2s”https://youtu.be/4QPU1VpPn2s Every time I write a battle scene I listen to this beforehand. I have a music crush onAndre, so this version is my fav. 😊
Freak- Brian Justin from America’s Got Talent https://youtu.be/KDIQfTdKWuY?t=164 I love this song for its raw, honest power. I rarely feel like I fit in, and so this speaks to me.
We came to play- Tower of Powerhttps://youtu.be/f91CYA5KdDc Myfavorite song from college. Every time I hear it I smile. We played it at my best friend’s birthday before the cops were called … but that’s another story. 😊
At this Moment https://youtu.be/Yb-Btye7ZpA, I heard this song years ago, and I always marveled at a depth ofemotion that comes from it. It’s soulful and has real meaning few songs convey. I love it.
Piece by Piece- Kelly Clarkson (The American Idol Farewell edition)https://youtu.be/tuunqfdz388 As a romantic writer this was an Oh-My-God moment. It’s a reminder that even though we might be discounted by those that are supposed to love us, there is someone out there that will understand, appreciate, and value us for who we are. The way she sings this song is so intimate, so exposed. Kelly is one courageous woman!
Stronger than me- Garth Brooks- Oh, good sweet Lord, Garth Brooks is a trueromantic and a great man. While country music isn’t my default, I love Garth because he’s fearless when it comes to showing his heart to the world. https://youtu.be/jo5mIsL8uvo
