Did you guess which book I wrote?


Arctic Druid

Arctic Druid

Can this young hunter find the druid in time to save his village?

For as long as he could remember, Eamon has wanted to become a hunter like his father. Now that he is twelve, he can finally go on his solo hunt to show he is ready. As the only person in his village ever to kill a moose, he has a good chance. But when he seeks assistance returning to the village, the hunters decide he should seek apprenticeship elsewhere.

Crestfallen, Eamon waits for his chance to prove himself to the hunters. When a mysterious darkness threatens to destroy his village, he sees his chance.

Only the Arctic Druid can rid the land of the darkness, but reaching him involves crossing the Barren Plains and Do’gorym Sea. No one wants to make the journey to seek his help. Some villagers don’t believe the darkness is a threat. Others doubt the druid even exists. Those who do fear they won’t survive the journey.

Eamon alone believes it’s possible. But will he be in time?

That's right! For the Inkfort Publishing Derby, I decided to try my hand at some low fantasy while writing a book for middle-grade readers.

It must be a big change from my usual writing, because no one who entered my contest was able to guess my identity! But don't worry. I will definitely be participating in the derby again, and you'll have another chance to guess.

So, now that I have another pen name, what am I going to do with it? Many authors are having their covers changed to reflect their regular name. However, I joined the derby with the goal of gaining a new penname to market to a new audience. That's right. I knew back in May that I would be writing a middle grade novel.

With this book, I will be launching a new bi-weekly newsletter especially for children's and middle grade books. This will be alternating with a middle grade Choose Your Own Path story. The first episode comes out this Wednesday!

If you haven't already done so,
