The Ahsenthe Cycle and other stories
Khe loves her simple farming life until she discovers her incredible ability to make crops grow faster is a death sentence. Terrified, she flees the only home she's ever known for the far-off city of Chimbalay, in search of those who might save her.
But Chimbalay holds its own dangers. When a powerful alien race takes notice of Khe and wants to use her for an evil purpose, she must learn to fight. What she discovers about herself in the process will change her planet forever...
The "otherness" of this culture reminded me of the writing of Ursula LeGuin and James Triptee Jr. (two of my SF favorites). The writing is first-rate. Whether you're a long-time fantasy/SF reader or new to the genre, I highly recommend this unique book. RK Jackson, author, The Girl in the Maze and Kiss of the Sun

Ashes and Rain
Khe and her new sisters thought defeating the lumani would make life better for everyone. Instead it brings a growing chaos—for which Khe blames herself.
Returning to Chimbalay in hope of stopping civilization’s collapse, she finds the lumani had been holding secrets. Dangerous secrets. The kind that can destroy not only her society, but also the planet the doumanas call home.

Gama and Hest
A mysterious explosion that leaves no damage. A sky that suddenly shimmers like sunlight reflected on water. For Gama and Hest, friends so close ‘it was as though they were hatched from the same egg,’ these are the first signs that something is going terribly wrong. As their world twist out of control, Gama suspects a new and dangerous intelligence is behind the strange happenings.
"I was riveted to the pages, toes curled as the
inevitable unfolded." WJ Scott, Children's Author, Fairy Dust:
By the Shining Sea
It doesn’t take enhanced hearing for Khe to know not everyone is happy she’s in Chimbalay. The male, Dran, is quite vocal about it. The wily Simanca also seems to be scheming against her. When Khe's vehicle malfunctions and takes her to the wrong mating grounds, it sets off a torrent of events no one could have foreseen—except maybe the planet, Ahsenthe, which has its own plans in motion.
"The characters aren’t human, yet they are intensely human. The
world is brilliantly magical, yet as real as a stone in the hand."

Reality and illusion collide.
When Jake Kendricks goes deep into the Amazon to negotiate with a local tribe for benesha—a mineral that holds the potential to end world hunger—he knows he was chosen not only because he’s very good at his job, but because he and the tribe’s chief are both three and a half feet tall. He soon realizes that benesha is not the salvation of humanity, but a threat to its very existence.
Blocking his escape to warn civilization are the dangerous jungle, a mysterious group of indigenous people, a teenage sorceress, a beautiful anthropologist – and madness.
"An unusual story with compelling metaphysics
and rich, beautifully written descriptions."
Awesome Indies Review
A town disappears. A new moon rises along with the old one. A woman accidently remakes the world.
Maddie Breslin is a world-class shopper, but a casual purchase delivers an unwelcome power into her hands.
"I loved this story. It’s surreal, but with multiple
meanings, and some of the fun of it lies in the pleasing
way they jostle together. I found myself looking at the
world slightly differently after reading it."
