MysticThe Mystic Trilogy is a series of fantasy novels I’m developing.

The first book, Mystic, was published by Tor Books on November 3, 2015. Read Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 for free. You can also listen to a free excerpt from the audiobook here.

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3

“I called to the Myst, and it sent us you.”


For hundreds of years, high-born nobles have competed for the chance to learn of the Myst.


Powerful, revered, and often reclusive, Mystics have the unique ability to summon and manipulate the Myst: the underlying energy that lives at the heart of the universe. Once in a very great while, they take an apprentice, always from the most privileged sects of society.


Such has always been the tradition—until a new High Mystic takes her seat and chooses Pomella AnDone, a restless, low-born teenager, as a candidate.


Commoners have never been welcomed among the select few given the opportunity to rise beyond even the highest nobility. So when Pomella chooses to accept the summons and journey to Kelt Apar, she knows that she will have more to contend with than the competition for the apprenticeship.


Breaking both law and tradition, Pomella undergoes three trials against the other candidates to prove her worthiness. As the trials unfold, Pomella navigates a deadly world of intolerance and betrayal, unaware that ruthless conspirators intend to make her suffer for having the audacity to seek to unravel the secrets of the Myst.

I began writing Mystic in mid-2013. I received the offer to purchase it in July 2014. Check out my blog post for more information about how I got the book published.

The cover art was created by Larry Rostant. Learn more about about the process of creating the cover here.

Mystic is available from Amazon, and many other vendors. Click here for a list of places to buy it.

I’ve compiled a list of notable reviews, interviews, and other articles related to Mystic.

The sequel, Mystic Dragon, is scheduled for release in July 2018. Mystic Skies, the concluding volume, is tentatively scheduled for publication sometime in 2019.
