(NEW EDITION COMING SOON! Sign up for KRISTEN’S UPDATES to receive pre-release info)

Anna is a fiery tomboy living in ancient Palestine whose androgynous appearance provokes ridicule from the people around her and doubt within her own heart. When tragedy strikes her family, and Anna’s father disguising her as a boy sells her to a band of shepherds, she is captured by a mystical and secret society of women hiding in the desert. At first Anna is tempted to escape, but she soon finds that the sisterhood’s teachings and healing abilities, wrapped in an ancient philosophy they call “The Way,” have unleashed an unexpected power within her.



Set in the turbulent Romantic era, Escapement is an arousing, through-the-keyhole glimpse into the private torment and ecstasy of creative genius.

Spun by Henri, the handsomely androgynous housekeeper of a brilliant but tortured composer, the tale delves into love triangles, obsessions, secret lives and the relentless pursuit of beauty as great artists struggle to accept and approach that which inspires them. No matter the cost.

Written with extraordinary beauty and populated with unforgettable characters, this lush and cinematic tale is as poignant as it is seductive.

Short Stories/Novellas



Domy’s life is predictable. He prefers it that way. Living in service to a benevolent ruler, the introverted Groundskeeper has dedicated his life to overseeing her magnificent property.

But when his crew suffers multiple accidents and the land’s gorgeous plants and animals are overtaken by frightening disfigurements, Domy must confront the possibility that things are not what they seem.

Tensions ratchet higher with the imminent arrival of honored Guests. In a frantic search for answers, Domy breaks Estate Law to elicit help from Flora, the beautiful Laundress. But can he really trust her?

When their unlawful probing leads them to discover a devastating truth about their ruler—and their very own existence—Domy realizes that he and Flora have nowhere to hide. And only one choice.

A mysterious and fantastical tale, Arise’s familiar beginnings belie a disturbing climax—one that leaves readers teetering somewhere between enchanted and unnerved.



He was a maker of fine windchimes. His life hollowed out by freak accidents. The kind that should never happen.

She was a lauded, much-loved poet. Her life equally marred by tragedy.

One day, they met. By chance.

He shared the artistry of sound. She, the traces of hummingbirds. Their courtship was fanciful and heated. Two artists in love.

Until fate struck once again. Forcing a separation. And a promise. Driving one lover to the outer edges of madness and artistic endeavor. To manifest–if they can–a way back.
