The Tarragon Trilogy

Long ago, the dragons created the Key Keepers and Dragon Mages to help protect the world against the Revenants. Desiring more power, the Mage Circle, a corrupt group of mages, rose up in rebellion against them. After a bloody battle, the Keepers were exiled and the dragons were imprisoned inside the Mountain. The Kaida, the true leader of the mages, disappeared.
Hundreds of years later, Anwen Porter seeks to fulfill her father's dying wish by traveling to the Drakonii Mountains. There, she uncovers an age-old prophecy regarding the release of the dragons and the one who will restore balance to the world. Now Anwen must race to unravel all the clues and discover a hidden power from within because the Revenants are coming and they will stop at nothing to destroy the world.
Tarragon tells of the epic quest bequeathed to Anwen by birthright, and those friends who help her along the way: the mysterious Tyler; Courtney, the village flirt; and Walter, the military veteran.

(Includes two new short stories and previously unseen illustrations by the author)

Character Introductions


Kas    Second Edition                    

Most teenagers don’t have a voice talking in their heads, but that’s pretty normal for Kas. It’s been there her whole life, giving her directions, keeping her from harm. When the voice advises against the family picnic in the mountains, she’s sure there’s a reason, but convincing her mom is another matter.

While in the mountains, Kas accidentally stumbles on a gateway to another dimension. Almost immediately, her life is in peril. From a disembodied man known only as Milord and a hoard of hooded men who want her soul, she doesn’t know who to trust in this strange place where dreams become reality.

As Kas learns more about who she is and how she came to the Waymeet of Worlds, it becomes clear that someone is lying to her. But is it the voice she’s known her whole life or the new friends she finds in Milord’s castle. Choosing the wrong people to trust could cost her soul and prevent her from fulfilling her destiny.

Trying to prove that he’s wrong, Marie keeps making mistakes that push them even further apart. It doesn’t help that she has a past she’d rather keep hidden. However, trying to keep her past where it should belong isn’t easy.
Just when Marie starts to feel like things are coming together, a madman with a bone to pick, and Christmas to ruin, threatens the whole of the North Pole Organization. Marie must rely on Clarence and her new friends to help her face her past before Christmas is gone forever. But does she have the courage to truly be herself when it could mean losing everything?
