My Latest Release

I have released through my imprint Pink Phoenix Press, my first middle grade/ young adult fantasy. It is called Medallion of Protection. I am very excited about it. It has been completed for some time but I have been fine tuning it for a while trying to get it ready. It is a fantastic story full of adventure and magic and I hope that kids and teens will like it. You can find out more on the Medallion page. For now here is a shot of the cover and the synopsis.

For Alexandra Raeanne Maeheart life could not be more perfect; or more boring. Growing up in a small town has left Lexi yearning for some sort of excitement. On the day of her fifteenth birthday she walks home from school contemplating her dull existence and discovers a medallion at the edge of her yard. 
Before she knows what is happening she finds herself stranded in a forest that is unlike anything she has ever seen. As she searches for help and answers she discovers that she is no longer on Earth but has been transported to Kalara; A world of magic controlled by a dark sorcerer, Lord Braxton, who intends to conquer all of Kalara and destroy Earth.
The only power great enough to stop Lord Braxton is the Light of Kalara, which has been broken into four medallions and hidden by a magical Druid named Morana. Without even a chance to catch her breath Lexi is informed that she is the Chosen One and must find the medallions. As she tries to understand why she was chosen for this seemingly impossible task she discovers that her life on Earth isn’t exactly what she thought it was.
Along with her friends Jaxa and Kelton and her tiny dragon Toto, she is sent back to Earth to find the second medallion; the Medallion of Life. The Druids warned her that Earth would be different but when she arrives on her home planet she cannot believe her eyes. Earth is no longer the boring normal planet she grew up on. It is a world full of magic, mythical creatures and danger. As she struggles to find a balance she must outrun Braxton’s dark assassin, outwit a fairy queen and navigate a strange but familiar world.
Will Lexi find the medallions before Braxton’s evil forces find her? Will she be able to escape the fairy realm with the information she needs? Will she have a place to call home if she survives her adventure? Find out in Lexi Maeheart: Medallion of Protection.

Introducing My New Cover

After much debate, arguments with self and crying tantrums I have decided to change my cover. Before I published my book I went through several (as in a billion) different cover ideas and finally settled on the first one. I published with it and was quite happy. Then the more I thought about it the more I realized that the cover says nothing about the book being a historical and therefore I was missing a rather important part of the book. So I have created a new cover which I am very happy with and hope all of my 3 readers ;) will enjoy. As always I would love any comments or feedback. So without further delay I bring you the second and hopefully final cover for Pursuit of Midnight.
