The Way of the Wielder is live!

Today is the day! My debut novel, The Way of the Wielder, is officially published and out in the world!

Kindle and paperback copies are available. If you haven’t ordered your copy yet, you can do so on Amazon now!

(Note: I will likely do a wider distribution in the future, but this is the first time I’ve published a novel, and it’s all a little overwhelming. Please be patient with me as I navigate the self publishing world.)


It’s been quite a journey to get this novel published. From querying with literary agents to navigating the self publishing industry; from countless hours of editing (myself and two editors) to creating my own map. The road has been filled with creative joy and fraught with heartache, but here I stand today—a published author.

To say that I’m excited is an understatement. I’m excited to share this story with the world, and hope that others get as much joy reading Jaslan & Jack’s story as I got from writing it.

What’s the book about?

In case this is your first time visiting my website and learning about my work, here’s the blurb for The Way of the Wielder.

Two people, searching for their paths in life.

Jaslan, a Water Wielder, begins researching a magical object with a strange symbol inside. As her research unfolds, she discovers truths that will not just change how magic is viewed, but will awaken in her something she thought was only a myth—something that may endanger her life, and the lives of those around her.

Jack joins an organization with ulterior motives, and slowly begins to question his involvement. But when an unexpected opportunity presents itself, he accepts without hesitation, and is plunged into a life of secrecy that allows him to protect those he cares about, but also blinds him to the veiled motives of others.

Her research and his espionage entwine in beautifully tragic ways that reveal not just the power of magic, but the power of love, the power of truth, and the power of lies.

Want more insights?

I go into more detail about The Way of the Wielder in my first newsletter, which I sent to subscribers last week. There, you can read more about Jaslan & Jack (the main characters), and learn about how I came up with this story. As a bonus, you can also read chapter one for free!

A note about my newsletter: I only intend to send one out quarterly (at most). They will not include the more frequent blog posts, but may offer additional insights into my current projects or topics of interest that require more space. If you ever want to opt out in the future, please feel free to do so.


That’s all for now. Thank you for reading, and for (hopefully) buying a copy of my debut novel. Your encouragement and support means more than you could ever know.

Until next time, be well, and stay creative.
