Redeemed: Supervillain Rehabilitation Project Book 2

August 01, 2020

Coming Summer 2020!

An idealistic heroine. A reformed villain. A troubled teen.
Can the Supervillain Rehabilitation Project form a family out of this mess?

Still working out her team's dynamic as well as her own fledgling romance with former villain, Fade, Prism is blindsided when her superiors order her to take on another rehabilitation subject or risk having her team broken apart. When her best friend and fellow superhero, Tanvi, foils a robbery but injures a super-powered teen in the process, she begs Prism to let the young girl, Alma, AKA Soulbird, be their next project. 

Alma fills a gap in the team and works her way into the group's hearts. However, her past stalks her, as the villain who forced her into a life of crime in the first place doesn't want to let her escape into hero life without a fight.

Can Prism and her team redeem Alma from her past or will the villain life drag the girl out of the SVR and out of their reach forever?

Coming Fall 2020!

The worst blows come from those closest to your heart.

Idealistic Superhero Prism has taken the Supervillain Rehabilitation Project to new heights. With her team thriving, her marriage to former supervillain Fade blissful, and her first child on the way, the life of her dreams is within reach ... but supervillains never rest. 

When a mysterious team of supervillains begin targeting Department of Super-Abled facilities, Prism's team—including new recruit, former "activist" Wildfyre—spring into action. However, this villain team has a nasty surprise in store for Prism and her team: all its members are already dead … and one of them is a ghost from Prism’s past. One she can’t bring herself to take down. 

Faced with an enemy who always strikes for the heart, Prism has impossible decisions to make. Decisions that could cost her the things--and people--she cares for the most. 

Untitled Puss in Boots Retelling

Young huntsman Spencer is a faithful servant of his king and constant guardian of the blind but adventurous Princess Everly. When the princess travels to a neighboring kingdom to marry their charming prince, the king entrusts Spencer with ensuring his daughter's safe journey. Unfortunately, the true danger to Everly waits for her in the form of her intended groom.

In the safety of his own kingdom, Prince Mykel reveals himself for the bully he is, and terrified Everly seeks help from the only one she truly trusts. Thankfully Spencer is clever enough to help her escape back to her homeland ... unfortunately, he isn't clever enough to escape himself.

Caught by a vengeful sorcerer king, Spencer finds himself cursed to four paws, a tail ... the whole feline package. If he wants to shed his furry form, all he has to do is ensure that Princess Everly marries the king's son. 
The good news, there's a loophole: the king didn't specify which son, so when Spencer discovers Prince Mykel's illegitimate half-brother hiding at the local mill, he thinks he's found his ticket back to humanity without sacrificing Everly's well-being. All Spencer has to do is ensure a hapless miller marries the beautiful princess. Easy when one is a clever cat with an innate sense of style ... 

What might not be so easy is putting aside his own feelings for the gentle princess ... or accepting her marrying a man too feckless to keep track of his own pants.  


Coming September of 2020 from Uncommon Universes Press

Stealer of warmth, bringer of death.

Foundling Lizbete has lived her life enduring the suspicions of her small town home ... suspicions that might prove to be well-deserved. Unable to produce her own bodyheat, to survive she has to draw warmth from other sources--the sun, fires, or other living beings. In a village where everyone talks, keeping her secret is hard enough, but when her needs start to harm those around her, Lizbete wonders if she even belongs with other humans.

Adding to the chaos, strange figures stalk the shadows of her isolated home. Livestock goes missing. Children are stalked, and the villagers start to notice these nefarious happenings often occur in Lizbete's orbit. The answer to it all might lie in the steam vents, mysterious caverns honeycombing the landscape around the village. Lizbete's need for answers--as well as warmth--lure her to these mysterious wells of geothermal energy. However, more than truth might lurk within the eerie glow of the volcanic passages.
