“Jaena’s palpable sense of duty toward Wiel is a much more intriguing story thread than the catastrophes that serve as a call to adventure in many fantasy novels.” — Kirkus Reviews
A short review of Taylenor was just published on kirkusreviews.com. Here’s a link to the full review.
“The headwoman had brought out her best mugs, blue-glazed treasures from the artisans in Duscapi. No doubt they’d been purchased at great cost to this tiny village and were brought out only to honor guests. Guilt pricked Jaena. The headwoman might not be so welcoming if she knew Jaena would be taking a child away from Bless-us-goddess.” — Taylenor
I’m happy to announce that my new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor, is now available on Amazon in print and Kindle editions!
This is the story of Jaena, a young priest who travels to isolated villages, blessing births and singing the souls of the departed to her goddess. In one village she finds Wiel, a teenager with the rare mage talent known as taylen.
Jaena takes Wiel to the city to try to save his life. Too late, she discovers that she has delivered Wiel into the hands of the Mage Defender, who rules by stealing the magic — and the lives — of children.
If you like a good fantasy read, check out Taylenor on Amazon. I hope you enjoy the novel! Here are the links to the print edition, and the Kindle edition.

If you’ve been wanting to check out my fantasy novels, now is a great time. Color Mage and Sword of Jashan follow Callo and Kirian as they flee the wrath of a Collared Lord — into the hands of the feared psychic mages of an enemy island. Meanwhile Callo must discover how to use his dangerous mage power without endangering all those around him. It’s a great read for adult fantasy readers.
