A new Court of Fives companion novella, BRIGHT THRONES, is now available as exclusive digital content.
""Bettany has always been an outsider in her family: the angry one, the wild one, the daughter who refused to accept the dominance of her Patron father’s people over her Commoner mother’s. When her family is torn apart by a vengeful lord, Bettany makes a dangerous choice to accompany their household servants being transported to the mines, hoping she can keep them from suffering a fate worse than death. Their only chance lies with a stuffy foreign doctor who may be able to help them escape, but can Bettany trust him? Her instincts tell her there is much more to this man than meets the eye.
Find out what happened to Jessamy’s missing twin sister in this Court of Fives companion novella!"
BRIGHT THRONES is available digitally through Little, Brown Books for Young Readers via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Google Play, and Kobo.
POISONED BLADE, the sequel to Court of Fives, is now available in hardcover.
"Now a Challenger, Jessamy is moving up the ranks of the Fives--the
complex athletic contest favored by the lowliest Commoners and the
loftiest Patrons alike. Pitted against far more formidable adversaries,
success is Jes's only option, as her prize money is essential to keeping
her hidden family alive. She leaps at the chance to tour the
countryside and face more competitors, but then a fatal attack on her
traveling party puts Jes at the center of the war that Lord
Kalliarkos--the prince she still loves--is fighting against their
country's enemies. With a sinister overlord watching her every move and
Kal's life on the line, Jes must now become more than a Fives
champion.... She must become a warrior."

A Note About Email:
My father once reminded me of the immortal words of Boss Pendergast to the newly-elected Senator Harry S. Truman upon Truman's leaving Missouri for Washington D.C.:
"Work hard, keep your mouth shut, and answer your mail."
I read all my email. I'm VERY slow answering it (I answer it all myself), but I try to get to it all eventually. It often takes me 3-4 months to reply. Sometimes it takes much longer, for which I apologize in advance.
Let me emphasize here that I appreciate each and every note that comes my way. As a writer I work in isolation, so it's gratifying to know that people are reading and enjoying the books.
