Do you like epic fantasy, world-building, diverse characters, and erotic LGBT content? If you share my excitement for complex stories told through uncensored art, I would love to have you on this journey!
The Darklaw Saga is a trilogy. The first book, Darklaw, is a novel. The second book, Darklord, is a webcomic. The third book, Darkwar, is a choose-your-own-adventure. I’ve chosen to create the trilogy this way because it’s more fun to me than slogging through three novels.
I have short stories published traditionally (you can find my list on Amazon author) and unpublished material awaiting final edits that will see publication one day.
In my day job I own a fitness studio. I’m a certified personal trainer and health coach, businesses that requires a great deal of continuing education. I love the work, the clients, and my own studio filled with Rogue equipment. I’ve worked in the corporate world as a graphic designer and web & database developer.
But my real love is comics.
It all started with Marvel’s Tarzan and Savage Sword of Conan (SSOC) when I was 10. I once wrote a letter to the editor of SSOC complaining about the way the artists drew warrior men vs warrior women: the women were all limp-armed and big-boobed, even Red Sonja. How the hell could these women even lift a sword, let alone fight? The letter was published and the editor apologized, but “that’s the way the artists were used to drawing.”
Well, I could have pointed out the other ridiculous things, like Conan in a loin cloth with a fur hood in arctic weather or any battle armor that left abs bare. But I was a kid and a girl and wanted the same ridiculousness for the female heroes as for the male heroes.
So I started doing it myself, learning to pencil and ink from artists like John Buscema, Ernie Chan, and Alfred Alcala.
The 100,000 word print novel, Darklaw, was published in 2015, complete with 21 illustrations. It includes a prequel, Hold Fast the Reins, as a bonus story. A post-Darklaw story, In the Shadows of Gods, was published in the Kindle anthology, Sci Spanks, later in 2015. In 2017, the ebook (without illustrations) became available. You can find all these publications at my Amazon Author Page.
