The Tales of the Forest War

THE WORLD WAS ALONE – AND THEN THE DRAGONS CAME.

Travel back in time two centuries before the events of the Nature Walker Trilogy to a time when dragons roamed Orana and the Mother Dragon, Kaerinth, worried that her children did not have the room to thrive and grow, confined to the Volcanic Mountains. The oncoming war makes unlikely comrades at arms, as the Great Forest bands together to make a stand against her.


OPPOSITE DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN ENEMY.

Return to the beginning of the world, of Orana – and discover the origin of the Guardians. In Book One, the Mother Dragon revealed her plan for domination. Will the races of Orana overcome their differences in time to stop her? Find out in SCORCH, book two of the Tales of the Forest Wars.

Discover the history of Orana in the Tales of the Forest Wars, Books One and Two, now in one volume, available in hardcover.



The Nature Walker Trilogy begins…

WELCOME TO ORANA, WHERE A MENACE PROWLS THE GREAT FOREST AT NIGHT, AND NO ONE IS SAFE.

It has been 200 years since the Forest War divided the races, and the Nature Walker – highest of all the druids of the Great Forest – has gone missing without naming a successor. A young wood elf named Gin finds herself thrown into the wider world beyond the Forest. Will she find the path that leads her to her destiny?


WITH revenge AS your compass, It’s easy to lose your way.  

The tension is building in the Outlands of Orana. A long forgotten dragon continues his search for the Nature Walker. Gin and Sath go their separate ways, spurred on by the machinations of the wizard, Taeben, and the Fabled Ones splinter further as a result. Will the magical forces keeping them apart be more than one wood elf can overcome?

When the fate of ORANA is at stake, the Guardians shall rise. 

The Royal House of Clawsharp has been threatened. The fate of Qatu’anari and indeed, all of Orana, hangs in the balance. The world is in more dire need of the Guardians than ever before. But will the prophecy come true? Will they rise to save the world in its time of desperate need?
