A brutal invader. A peaceful world. And one woman born to stand between.

For twenty years, the Maga invaders have been ravaging the world. Now the world has forged a defender: a woman who can touch its living power.

Kara, daughter of a great healer, knows only the life of a slave in the toxic darkness of a mine. Her murdered mother's healing herbs grow untended while her family toils in the fields to grow food for Maga tables. What else can they do? The world binds them to its peace. Violence is unthinkable.

Yet Kara is anything but peaceful. She'd wipe the Maga off the face of the earth if she could. When her master accuses her of sabotage and she has to run for her life, Kara discovers that she has the ability to alter chance to make her wishes a reality.

But her wishes bring only storm and chaos. Soon, the violence that follows her ignites a war between Maga factions, forcing her into an improbable alliance with Maga Master Gerek...a tie that, against Kara's every instinct, begins to grow into something more.

As she struggles to control her wild power, Kara will find out if her willingness to fight the hated Maga will heal the living world-or destroy it.

About the Author

I've been writing pretty much forever. I wrote my first fantastic fiction, a story about a saber toothed tiger that encounters a time machine, at the age of 8. The story was three paragraphs long and was told from the point of view of the saber toothed tiger. My stories kept getting longer. By the time I finished high school, I decided to tackle a novel. Many hundreds of thousands of words later, and here I am, still writing about weird things.

In between writing, I've been the owner of a successful small business, worked as an assistant medical librarian, a database manager and a pusher of paper in countless offices. I've also been a copy editor for three nationally-distributed rodeo magazines and the editor of a local literary magazine.

I live with my husband, five dogs and two goats above the valley at the edge of the woods east of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, a place where the view goes on forever.
