Take a fantastic journey across the Land of MarBryn where the magical metal-horned unicorn tribe from Unimaise was accidentally stranded years ago. After a century, the entire tribe has nearly been decimated by a powerful wizard who collects their horns and hooves to increase his own magic and control over the land. The prophecy that a savior would come along to lead the unicorns back to their home world seems to have turned into a cruel hoax but the least likely candidate steps forward to answer the call. He has no metal and he has no magic and that seems to spell only doom but the tribe has no choice other than to trust that he will be the one to save them all.
How does a human survive in an alien dominated InterGalactic Community? By becoming an assassin, of course.
At least, that’s what Leopold thought when he became an assassin for the elite. Pretending to be an alien known as Voidstriker, Leopold feeds his appetite for vengeance, killing aliens as well as taking their money. It’s a win-win to his mind. That is, until a bounty is placed upon his head.
With his true identity now revealed to the IG Community, Leopold knows it’s only a matter of time before the powerful family members of his victims come for blood. Far worse is the fact that the one who put the bounty on his head, is the one he most fears.
A routine job three cycles ago brought him face-to-face with Mastrodai, a prince of the powerful Mrrog Nation. Not only did Leopold—accidentally—destroy part of Mastrodai’s moon, but one glimpse of the mighty alien had him feeling desire for the first time in his life. He ran, and like predator after prey, Mastrodai never stopped hunting him.
Leopold is convinced that Mastrodai wants bloody revenge. But when he finally confronts the mrrog, he is stunned to realize Mastrodai wants something very different. Something surprisingly intimate—the one thing that scares Leopold more than torture.
WARNING: 1) This is NOT a fluffy romance and 2) There is torture/rape OFF PAGE (NOT between the main couple, Mastrodai and Leopold–their sexy times are always consensual), and dealing with the aftermath of assault.
She’ll risk her life to break his curse but revealing the truth could be far more dangerous.

Sophie Vasilyevich is a teenager growing up in Anglond, the child of exiles. Sometimes grass springs up where she walks, and her future holds an unusual fate: she is going to be kidnapped when she is sixteen, and no one can stop it.
Taken between worlds to the city of Bath in 1920’s England, Sophie meets a young man called James Carnwallis, once a pilot in the Great War. But even as she falls in love, she learns more about the forces at work – and her fate in their plans.
As an alliance of shamans, ghosts and gods assembles in a desperate attempt to recover Sophie and prevent the destruction of their worlds, they find that their only hope may lie in Sophie’s gift, and in the Greenwood: a power older than time itself.
Keira and her mother disagree over what makes a good husband, but the truth is, prospects in her village are slim. So when Aaron Drake arrives in the village and sets his sights on her, she cannot help but be interested. It’s not just his handsome looks or easy confidence that captures her attention, but rather an air of otherness. Something that sets him apart.
But Aaron is not the only new arrival. A fire-breathing dragon has taken up residence in the surrounding mountains, and the villagers are certain that it is just a matter of time before the creature destroys them all. There is more to the creature than meets the eye, however, and when danger comes it is not from the dragon, but from one of their own. But it is Keira’s heart that is most at risk, and she must decide if she can pay the price that love demands.
On the day of her mother’s funeral, twenty-three-year-old Grace Maxwell discovered the man who raised her was not her biological father. Instead, he was a best-selling self-help author and a world famous “Guru to the Stars.” Known as Mr. MAJIC for the miraculous impact his books and seminars had on millions of people, he had inexplicably vanished around the time Grace’s mother became pregnant with her.
For over 20 years, the mystery of Mr. MAJIC’s sudden and unexpected disappearance, and the speculation of what might have become of him, was the stuff of Urban Legend. The theories ranged from he was a homeless bum living under a bridge in the Bay Area to his most avid fans claiming he had attained divine enlightenment and had ascended straight to heaven. Even nearly a quarter of a century later, on the anniversary of his disappearance, there would be stories in the media asking what ever happened to Mr. MAJIC?
Among her mother’s things, Grace discovered MAJIC’s long missing and thought lost forever unpublished manuscript, “The True Path to Enlightenment.” The manuscript was considered to be the Holy Grail of self-help books and was worth a king’s ransom. The problem for Grace, before anyone would publish the book, she must prove the manuscript was not a fake. This was no small task, considering the only person who could provide the definitive confirmation hasn’t been seen or heard from in over two decades. With the help of her fellow Generation Z sister and an old-school, hard-boiled detective that had made finding MAJIC his life’s work, Grace goes on a quest to find the elusive Mr. MAJIC.
Along the way she meets her perfect soulmate and finds true inner-peace and a state of wellbeing she had previously thought unimaginable.
Wrapped inside this fast-paced romantic mystery, the reader will discover a simple to follow tutorial of how to identify and release the things that are making them miserable. They will gently be shown a simple step-by-step process that, if followed, can lead to a state of enlightenment and wellbeing.

Amanda Craig The Sunday Times ~ “One of the most captivating new books to be published for 8+ for some time . . . It made me laugh, cry and remember exactly what’s so special about the time when you or your child live in hope of finding a dragon of your own”

Silver Medal Winner 2013 ~ Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards
The Bookbag ~ I thought this was an absolutely gorgeous little book. It’s charming but exciting too, and while I think it will find its most loyal audience amongst tween girls there’s also plenty to appeal to boys and older teens.Thoroughly enjoyable and beautifully written dragon fantasy with a good conflict between disparate protagonists. Plenty of appeal for a wide range of readers.
Fantasy Book Review ~ A Battledragon of a Book ~ for all ages!~ Reading Lucinda Hare’s debut novel The Dragon Whisperer is like riding a dragon. You have to hold on tight during the twist and turns, take time to stop and enjoy the breathtaking view, prepare yourself for the sudden lows, enjoy the soaring heights and make sure you’re not on the wrong end of that fiery breath!
A tale hatched from Hare’s real-life experiences and devotion to all kinds of animals, The Dragon Whisperer follows Earl’s daughter (and dragon whisperer), eleven year old Quenelda. Her best friend is a battle-dragon with the comically cautionary name of Two Gulps and You’re Gone, who she can command through thought alone. Hare offers a headstrong heroine in Quenelda that chooses dragons over dresses, battles over boys and ultimately dreams of joining her father’s side as a warrior in the Stealth Dragon Services.
Don’t be fooled though… just because Hare has chosen a young girl as her protagonist doesn’t mean she has written a book solely for that gender. Yes, the tale flies in the face of books such as Harry Potter and Artimis Fowl that have strong male protagonists, but The Dragon Whisperer contains enough dark magic, fierce battle dragons, and slimy hobgoblins to appeal to young boys.
Regardless of gender, readers will root for the underdog (a young gnome named Root) and wish they had their very own dragon. On the surface, Hare describes the relationship been Quenelda and Two Gulps like that between horse and rider, but the dragons are given such a depth of history and behaviours, that after the book is shut, the reader half expects to see these beasts lurking in local paddocks.
The one letdown of Hare’s work, is that, in marketing it towards children, adults might see it as ‘just another children’s book’ and pass it over. The back cover boasts a ‘9+’ age rating and I urge anyone nine or over to snap this read up. Verdict? A battle-dragon of a book!
On completion of her training as an agent of the interstellar federation’s Anthropological Service, Elana is sent to a world whose people may soon destroy their civilization. Since not enough is understood about the situation to justify any interference with their evolution, the Service has no power to act; its agents must go as helpless observers, posing as natives, in the hope of gaining knowledge that may help to save other worlds. This passive role proves intolerable to the young, inexperienced agent assigned to the same city as Elana, a city under totalitarian rule. After falling in love with a local girl who has become Elana’s closest friend, he identifies too completely with the natives and unwittingly endangers the entire world by a well-meant but ill-advised attempt to intervene. Forced to assume responsibility for undoing the damage, Elana finds that only she–at great cost–can prevent an immediate war of annihilation.
From the reviews:
“A surprising, haunting, poetic book . . . full of provocative philosophical and psychological questions as well as tense adventure and romance.” —Commonweal
“Gripping psychological science fiction . . . the relationship between the heroine and her sophisticated, unbrutish interrogator is beautifully balanced and adds another dimension to a story which is already multi-faceted.” —Times Literary Supplement, London
“The author has a direct, forceful style of writing that sparks the reader’s imagination.” —Publisher’s Weekly
Genetic Altering Pathogen Devolves Humans into Apes.
By 2062, humanity has recovered from the Apocalypse, but the population has increased to over 20 billion souls, straining societies, countries, resources and Earth itself. Wars and lawlessness are a fact of life in most of the world, and the merchants of death are selling any armament imaginable, including nuclear and bio-chemical weapons.
In Africa a mysterious new plague affects one billion people, who devolve into mindless humans behaving like apes. Unable to function, except at the most primitive level, the majority die fighting among themselves like beasts, or starve to death. Is this a natural occurring plague, like Ebola, or is it a man-made bio-chemical agent?
The governments impose worldwide quarantine, while agencies like WHO, CDC, and NIH, among others, rush to identify the agent/pathogen and develop an antidote. But the cause is not a virus, or a nerve agent. It is a complete mystery of what causes the devolution of the human brain, where it comes from and how it propagates. The scientific community is helpless. Only an unorthodox investigation might find the answer.
Claire, Prescott, and Travis of the Capuchin Trinity Team are paranormal and supernatural investigators, and they are hired to identify the cause, find the criminals –if any– who developed it, and prevent the end of humanity. Through their paranormal ability they descend into Hell to interrogate a deceased arms dealer who might have sold this mysterious mind-altering agent. Their investigation takes them to Africa, and then to Egypt, where they find Aaron’s Rod, the Ark of the Covenant, and the original source of this mind-altering agent. Final clues lead them to a California University where the agent was weaponized. They risk their life to infiltrate a secret society responsible for this tragedy and discover their sinister plan of eradicating the entire humanity, except for a few chosen ones.
The doom time is near, and they have to use all their skills to stop the culprits and to help the survival of humanity, while the doomsday clock is ticking.
Evil empire attacks a peaceful planet. Fight or be enslaved.
On Earth, Tim Andrus was a science-fiction writer, who, after dying, had his head preserved cryogenically – just in case he’ll get a second chance to live again. He was resurrected, not by doctors but by gods. To his surprise he’s not a mere mortal, but a god himself and his god-name is Timurud.
Unfortunately, the life of a god is not all heavenly. Timurud, the god, must protect the good against the evil, the weak and powerless civilizations against ferocious galactic empires. Once he was a human, but now as a god he lives in the galactic realm of thousands of habitable planets, populated by as many species of aliens, with spaceships traveling at near the speed light by warping the fabric of space, or even faster than the light-speed when traveling through the Dark Universe. The galactic empires have at their disposal superior technological knowledge and enforce their dominance with planet-killer battleships, space troops, armored attack forces, proton and laser cannons.
Timurud’s first mission is to defend the peaceful Sferogyl people against the Maggotroll Empire, warlike hominids who are determined to enslave the Sferogyls and capture their planet. Timurud is not allowed to fight in space battles, but he can help the Sferogyls prepare to defend themselves. Trouble is, the Sferogyls don’t have any spaceships or armies, and only a short time to build up their defenses. They are vulnerable to any attack from space and their only hope is Timurud.
Even if Timurud is a god, will he be able to help the peaceful and unarmed Sferogyls get ready to defend themselves against the evil Maggotroll Empire?
AN IRREVERENT, LIBERAL, TWISTY, TIME TRAVEL COMEDY!
What if you could make a change to history that would eliminate the Spanish Inquisition, American slavery, World War II, global warming, and an egomaniacal US president who thought he was smart enough to drop nuclear bombs here and there without negative consequences? What if that change also made the United States and 5 billion people poof from existence? Would you do it?
When alien time travel specialists, the Krichards, learn of President Handley’s game of dodge the mushroom cloud, they race to Earth to investigate. For them, the question of whether it’s worth it to change history is easy to answer, but they will only proceed if the human they deem best qualified to represent Earth agrees to make the change. Erasing Handley’s nuclear annihilation would require a quick jump to AD 31 to make a simple correction to the past. If the Krichards had selected a brilliant scientist or an elite athlete for the task, Earth might be in good hands. Instead they selected Marty Mann, a mildly successful travel writer, whose only superpower is not taking life too seriously. What could possibly go wrong?
Spanning from the Cretaceous period to 2056, Time is Irreverent is a hilarious, thought-provoking satire, with unpredictable twists, colorful aliens, huge dinosaurs, a smokin’ hot lesbian from the future, and a cameo from Jesus Christ himself!
