Book One of The Shielded Realms

Young Adult Fantasy 

Sixteen is supposed to be a special day for most young girls, but Shawna’s sweet sixteen turns into a night of terror. After she overhears her parents having a strange and chilling conversation about “things” coming for her she plans to run away, but before she can monstrous creatures come scratching at the door. In her last desperate moments, a powerful black unicorn comes to her aid, taking her away to a fantastical realm of magic, danger, and mystery. 

She wakes to find herself at the mercy of a sassy old witch, a quirky fairy who’s allergic to her own fairy dust, a fierce unicorn unlike the kind found in fairy tales, and a world of beauty and nightmares; a world, she discovers, that is not only her own, but is unraveling from an ancient curse. The truth of the curse, and of the shattered sapphires, will take Shawna and her companions on a thrilling adventure through the dreamscapes of the five Shielded Realms. But within the last realm, the unicorn is hiding a dark, and terrible secret.

Four generations have passed since the first colonists survived the murderous fires of Colony, and its command module has lain in ruin ever since. However, the power of its manipulative teachings has resonated through time and minds. Now, Oliver's devout descendants have rediscovered their sacred Colony, and the Gods are coming to cleanse their world.


Adult New-Age Humor

Bia, a young woman living in Los Angeles, feels that her life has been spiraling into  oblivion. 

If you liked The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, The Celestine Prophecy, or any "slice of life" changing stories then follow the white tiger on a humorous, heart-felt, soul touching adventure. 

Along with a dash of down-to-earth of humor, a twist of mystical, and a cast of crazy characters, Amur leads us on a philosophical journey into the heart of the wilderness and humanity: what is the purpose of our short, silly, little lives, and what do you do with a tiger on your couch?
