A.D. 1415 Fiona's world is a carefully built castle in the air, made up of the fancies, wishes, and memories of her childhood. It begins to crumble as she watches her brother march away to join in the English invasion of France. It falls to pieces when he is brought home dead.

Robbed of the one dearest to her and left alone in the world, Fiona turns to her brother's silver cross in search of the peace he said it would bring. But when she finds it missing, she swears she will have it and sets out on a journey across the Channel and war-ravaged France to regain it and find the peace it carries.

Tempus Regina

Hurled back in time and caught in a strange and strangely familiar world, Regina Winters finds herself called out with the title of time queen.  The birth of one legend and the death of another rest on her 19th century shoulders, but far weightier than both is her duty to the brother she left alone in her own era.  To return to him, she strikes a bargain with an assassin and self-styled genius that sends them both further into the past, searching for the place where time can be set right.

Wordcrafter

"One man in a thousand, Solomon says, will stick more close than a brother..."

Justin King has two great loves: his writing and his tea. He has lived alone in his Glasgow flat for several years with only those two for company, and each day of those years has fit into the same mould - until the advent of Ethan Prince, whose friendship turns Justin's life upside down and whose very existence forces Justin to accept that not all fantasy is confined to the page. Wordcrafter tells the story of a friendship across two worlds.

The White Sail's Shaking & The Running Tide

Tip Brighton is a failure, and at the ripe old age of seventeen, he's almost gotten used to the fact.  But when his family loses patience, bundles him into a midshipman's uniform and sends him packing to fight Barbary pirates, he's determined once and for all to turn his luck around.  Unfortunately, it just isn't that easy to mind one's own business on a crowded ship at sea - and the murder of a fellow officer only makes it worse.  Allowing himself to be caught up in the business, and in the affairs of a stowaway Syracusan girl, will jeopardize all his well-laid plans for glory.  Is justice really worth the loss of his dreams?
