Fortunate Son is my debut urban fantasy novel, set in a magical version of Wilmington, North Carolina.  The great Queen is dead after centuries of benevolent dictatorship, leaving no clear successor, and her realm is fragmenting under the weight of conflicts between the conservative Old World Gentry who support the new Queen, the radical and reckless Cavaliers who serve the ambitious Black Prince, and an anti-authoritarian, anti-monarchial uprising among the city's shapeshifters.  The city itself is flanked between the hostile Beast-Kings to the west and the enigmatic Mare Queen in the east, and at the crossroads of history stands Michael Bruce, the Captain of the Queen's knights, and one human family under his protection.  It's about plots, corruption, secrets, prophecy, violence, and honor, and it's coming to you in 2013.

Please consider helping support this self-publishing project!  If you're on the fence, I'd love to have you visit my blog at hth.dreamwidth.org -- you'll find the first chapter of Fortunate Son there, as well as a few links to my fanfiction to give you a better sense of who I am as a writer and whether I might be producing the kind of work you'd like to see in the paranormal genre.
