HEART of the FOREST

A Darkwood Novella

Prince Kentry of Raine knows that if only he can capture the magical White Hart, the creature will grant his heart’s desire.

PASSAGE OUT

A Victoria Eternal Story

Oliver Twist meets Firefly in this short story from USA Today bestselling author Anthea Sharp.

Steampunk and Space Opera combine in a charming tale that inspired the full novel STAR COMPASS, where Victorian sensibilities rule supreme and the British Galactic Empire spans the stars…

THE FIRST ADVENTURE

Prequel to the Feyland Series

High-tech gaming and ancient magic collide when a computer game opens a gateway to the treacherous Realm of Faerie.

Jennet Carter never thought hacking into her dad’s new epic-fantasy sim-game would be so exciting… or dangerous. Behind the interface, dark forces lie in wait, leading her toward a battle that will test her to her limits and cost her more than she ever imagined.

Happy reading – and stay tuned, I have more fun reads for you coming up!

White as Frost is now out!

Two sisters. One enchanted forest. And a hidden destiny that could doom them both…

I didn’t want to come live in the castle beside the Darkwood, and I especially didn’t want to become enemies with my stepsister Neeve. But how could I help it? She has magic, while I’m an ordinary girl. She’s the heir to the throne, while I’m an annoying afterthought since my mother married the king. And Neeve has the ability to master her emotions while I’m a red-haired disaster.

She also has Thorne, the handsome guardian of the forest, who tutors her in the powers that are her heritage. Even though I know he could never be mine, I can’t keep my heart from dreaming of the impossible.

But everything changes, the day I uncover the secrets the castle has been hiding…
