Current Projects

On this page, you’ll be able to see the stories that I’m currently working on. They’re stories that I’m either actively working on at the moment or stories that have something written for it so far. If you’d like to know anything about the stories that I’m working on that won’t spoil the story, feel free to send me a message and I’ll include it in one of my newsletters!

I’d also like to mention that these synopsis are extremely provisional and will probably change as the drafting process goes along. They’re just what I can say for now!

Series: This is the first book in a series.
Current Stage: Currently Writing
Thematic Statement: Rise from the shadows and show we matter.”

This story is a gay Sleeping Beauty inspired story. Part of it comes out of my love of the stars and prophecies! I also wanted to write a story inspired by one of my favourite stories growing up while portraying Maleficent in a nicer light than the original tale did. Maleficent isn’t the villain in this story, they do play a vital role, however.

The Dream Prince is also a story of youth empowerment and how youths can rise up and cause change in the worlds they live in. Teens saving the world is completely realistic, don’t tell me otherwise.

  • Prince Khenan once believed the stars foretold him from birth as the promised Sun Prince. Years later, he brands himself a traitor as he possesses a forbidden art in the Kingdom of Quiema, Magic. His doubts soon aid him in learning that the prophecy was forged. The true meaning jolts Khenan into escaping the palace and accidentally starting a sorcerer rebellion. Khenan’s main goal is to journey to Teijo so he can awaken the Prince. The same Prince who was placed under a sleeping curse — a consequence of the prophecy.

    Prince Naito will soon be dead. However, through dream-walking, he has experienced life through others. After learning that his soul might hold the key to breaking the curse, he breaches his sole tenet and leaves his dreamscape to enter the Spirit Lands, the home of spirits both good and bad. Naito must be resourceful, as he’ll have to forge alliances with spirits that could betray him at any moment.

    The clock is ticking closer to the curse’s completion. Only together, do Princes Khenan and Naito stand a chance of defeating their evils, before they encompass and kill them both.

    THE DREAM PRINCE is inspired by Sleeping Beauty with LGBT+ characters and Afro-Caribbean and East-Asian inspired kingdoms.

Series: This is the first book in a series.
Current Stage: First draft written.
Thematic Statement: “Be who you are, not who you’re expected to be.”

This is partly a combination of my NaNo 2015 & 2016 novels, since they both spawned from the same idea. Since then, two more perspectives have been added. As a result, I love the story much more. I’m hoping to write the first draft in July (with Camp NaNoWriMo) then edit it continuously throughout the rest of the year.

  • Asha has struggled to keep her family alive from a drought that has cursed her land. The opportunity arises for Asha to get revenge on the person she hates most. To Asha, she can’t resist taking that chance. However, the exact same person might bring her the salvation she desperately needs.

    When Kaiah’s twin brother is murdered, she takes the opportunity to escape her arranged marriage and assume his identity. Taking his seat on the Valiath Council, Kaiah is determined to find her brother’s killer. But, she quickly learns that masks are worn as deadly games are played within this court of lies. With the assailant closer than she thinks, Kaiah will have to outsmart her brother before she becomes just like him.

    Corvus’ path to becoming a Meraki becomes more complicated with every step he takes. When an unexpected Master Scholar takes Corvus under her wing, he discovers that he possesses a rare magic thought lost. With his life becoming even more complicated, Corvus will have to act quick.  Otherwise, he’ll risk himself being used as a weapon for war.

    However the situation soon becomes dire. The three of them must work together to stop a threat that could kill them all.
