Jack of Hearts

Jack of Hearts is my first novel, to be published by Bell Bridge Books in the spring of 2013. Here’s a description of the project:

Jack is a boy without a heart. He surrendered it long ago to the Lady of Twilight. In exchange, he no longer feels the crushing loss of his sister … or anything else. But there is a price. The Lady transforms him into a callous hunter with a mandate to chase down and kill a thieving wizard named Moribrand, but when Jack meets a beautiful girl trapped in a mirror, the impossible happens — he feels an echo of his distant heart and the sensation staggers him.

Jack of Hearts is a 94,000-word young adult fantasy that would be the first in a series of books.
