An in-the-works YA Fantasy. Howls Moving Castle meets Beauty and the Beast.


For ten years, a never-ending winter has barraged the Kingdom of Velindar—a curse for the terrible taboo committed by its missing prince.

Far south, in Ayga, Emalilly Melbourne receives her post at the Academy of Magical History. But on her first day as an official historian, she unwittingly frees Oruc Ewin, the banished and soulless prince of Velindar.

As a reward for her misguided kindness, he offers her an impossible choice—the death of someone who wronged her or the rest of her life in Velindar as his ward.

That choice leads Ema on a journey of sacrifice and redemption—threatening to change their world forever.
