The Night and Its Moon

The Night and Its Moon is Book One in a completed four-part fantasy series scheduled for rapid release in 2022.


This dual POV high fantasy series follows protagonists Nox and Amaris as they navigate growth through the divided continent of Gyrradin, from their upbringing in Farehold’s northernmost orphanage, to the separation that forces them to discover both who they are, and who they need to become in order to survive.


The Night and Its Moon explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships in a way that is both LGBTQA+ affirming, while acknowledging the nuances and challenges of understanding one’s own identity in a black and white world so often filled with shades of grey.

Fun Facts about TNAIM

Book One was written in 6 days.

- the night of September 28th, I was having a typical "insomniac" night, and Nox & Amaris wandered into my mind. I began outlining their story the next day, and outlined from 9:30am-noon. After lunch, I began writing, and had finished all 120k words in less than a week.

• I didn't intend to write a series!

- I assumed it would be one fun manic episode, but instead, the story just continued to build and grow organically. all four books were completed within a two month time period. copies were given to my editor & beta readers immediately, and the reaction encouraged me to publish!

• my fantasy inspirations

- I love C.S. Lewis, Patrick Rothfuss, Sarah J. Maas, Andrzej Sapkowski, but just found myself asking, "why don't girls ever kiss in my favorite fantasy novels?"
