I am currently working
on two major projects. The YA dark
fantasy series, REDEMPTION’S HEIR, chronicles the adventures of (our friend)
Sean Wyndham in the universe of the Cthulhu Mythos. The “small-scale” epic fantasy series, THE
RIVER, features mayhem and intrigue in the world of Kyras.
SUMMONED (Book One of REDEMPTION'S HEIR, coming from
Tor Books, 2014)
Real magic can be real
trouble, as fifteen-year-old Sean Wyndham learns when he encounters the
Reverend Redemption Orne online. Orne
claims to be a wizardly survivor of the 1692 New England witch panic, and he
offers Sean a ritual to summon a powerful familiar. When the ritual works, Sean is left with a
monstrous Servitor whose appetite threatens to escalate from neighborhood pets
to random humans. Getting rid of it
isn't as easy as emailing Orne for the counter spell. Orne has been testing Sean to see if he'll
make a good apprentice. Now he proposes
a second test: Sean must find the
dismissing ritual himself.
