Shapechangers is the first book in the Chronicles of Cheysuli series. The Cheysuli are a race of magical warriors that can shapeshift into animals whenever they like. They had long been allies of the King of Honma until the king’s daughter ran away with a Cheysuli man. The king turned against them and declared war against them. Twenty five years later, the remaining Cheysuli became exiles who were hunted. This first book introduces Alix, the king’s granddaughter, a half-Homanan half-Cheysuli woman as she seeks to answer an ancient prophecy.

Sword-Dancer is the first book in a series of the same name. Tiger won his freedom as a slave after mixing magical with a warrior’s skill becoming a legendary sword dancer. Del was trained by the greatest of the Northern sword masters and has now headed South to find a younger brother who was stolen five years ago. In Del, Tiger finds one of the most intriguing challenges he has ever encountered in this mysterious sword dancer from the North as she asks for his help in crossing the punja, the deadliest part of the desert.
