The Eyes of Mara

What hides beneath the surface of this fragile reality?


What might be seen when a light shines in the darkness?


Its 1984 and for Charlie Bullock, life is all about the surface detail: The clothes, the hair, the music.

But when she enters the old crumbling Gatley House she unlocks a disturbing truth that threatens to rip her world apart and set the wheels in motion for an epic battle between good and evil.


Read The Eyes of Mara, the chilling prequel novella to the Legends of the East series.

The Search for Jewel Island

If she wants to save her father...

she'll have to save reality first.

Esta Brown is failing at school, friendships... at life.


If only she could get her father back everything would be OK again.

But he vanished into thin air two years ago after becoming obsessed with a creepy old house... old house that just happens to be sitting on a rip in space and time. Whatever he was doing there, he's opened up a multidimensional can of worms in the form of Mara, the demon of chaos. If Esta is going to see him again, she's going to have to fix his screw-ups. And if she fails... the fabric of reality itself is already unraveling around her.
