Her debut novel, Chandrea – The Return of the Avatar Queen, won 6th place in the 2012 Critique My Novel writing contest, and is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.


Chandrea Averill thinks she’s just like any other normal young woman. But, on her 23rd birthday, her life changes forever.
Surrounded by magical creatures, dangerous sorcery, and insidious political intrigue, Chandrea desperately wants to return to Earth and the only life she’s ever known. But, the longer she stays, the more she realizes that she may be the only one with the power – both magical and political – to save the people of Lyrunia. Will she find the courage to remain and fight for her home world?
