I was delighted to see that THE STONE OF SORROW has made the Publisher’s Weekly 2019-2020 YA Booklist!
I’m especially proud to have my book recognized as “fantasy featuring underrepresented characters” — and can promise that Books 2 and 3 will also feature nonbinary characters and LGBTQ+ content.
Here is the link to the fabulous list!

Follows Runa, a strong-willed 17-year-old in ancient Iceland who embarks on a dangerous mission to save her sister and win back the mystical blue moonstone that ensures their village’s survival. The fantasy includes a nonbinary Valkyrie and key characters in a f/f relationship.
