The world as we know it is gone. 
There are no more countries, states, or cities.  No more traditional government... 
only survivors who have created a new world made up of small colonies. 
 
It has been thirteen years since the 
last World War and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the 
Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains.  The settlement is 
making ready to host the fall Gathering. A time to remember the past as 
well as discover new loves, old friends, family, and fun, but just as the 
festivities begin, the people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings 
on they can't explain. Unseen forces attack several guests and friends 
begin to distrust friends.  When they receive news of a horrific 
massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that 
threatens to destroy the tranquil village.  

 
 
Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this malevolent 
force alongside her oldest and dearest friends.  The fate of her 
people, the lives of her children and freedom itself rests in her hands. 
Will she have the courage to do what must be done... and at what price? 
  
This is the beginning of a journey that will change all of their 
lives forever. 
 
The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles is 
the first in a new Paranormal, Fantasy, and Adventure Series.

    The riskier the wager... 
    Everyone knows that Gemma Templeton is a wonderful, cheerful, friendly young woman who is well worth one’s acquaintance. She is vibrant and warm, and plays the violin with exquisite talent. The only thing she lacks is a husband, and time is growing short for her in that regard. When an interesting opportunity arises from an unlikely source, Gemma’s future is suddenly far more appealing, and a small wager makes all the difference. 
    ...the sweeter the return. 
    What everyone does not know is that a certain man of a less warm reputation is very much interested in changing Gemma’s unmarried state, and he doesn’t care what anybody says. Lucas Sinclair, Lord Blackmoor, is a dark mark upon the face of Society, and his unexpected interest in Gemma leaves many to wonder if his motives don't hide some sinister purpose. He takes her ridiculous wager, and will stop at nothing to see it paid.
