    I didn’t want to read too much on your site because I didn’t want any spoilers. I came across your writing in a collection book where you added a short called “Holding Out” with Sunflash and Aleron…where would I start to continue with these characters? Also, I think I saw they were Youth friendly books (for my young teens?

    Loved your Gryphon series. It inspired me to start writing and publishing my own books! I’m re-reading them now for the third time, lol.

    I hope you write more like them in the future!

      Hi Eileen,

      Thanks for getting in touch and for your kind words! I am working diligently to get both book two (Windswept) and book three (Windbreak) out in October. The best way to keep up on progress is to join my mailing list — that’s the first place I make announcements and other cool info!
