After months of writing, editing, marketing, good reviews, bad reviews, and (maybe) a few tears, my debut Young Adult Sci-Fi novel Founder’s Mercy has finally hit the shelves. Founder’s Mercy is the story of childhood best friends Adan and Bo who hatch a plot to escape from the oppressive, fascist Bolvar Union before serving their required five years in the military. After a heist gone wrong, Adan discovers he has a gift not seen in the five centuries since the First Explorers colonized Neska: he can use Old Tech. And the Union will stop at nothing to learn why, even if it kills him.

I loved researching and writing Founder’s Mercy. I fell in love with Adan, Bo, and every other character as I wrote them. And it’s with love (and a little fear) that I send them out to make their way in this world. I’m envious of the folks who get to read and enjoy it for the first time (I’ve read it SO MANY times.) And I can’t wait to get started on the sequel!

Founder’s Mercy is now available for Kindle (free on Kindle Unlimited) and in paperback.
