And sometimes it’s about creating other selves.

About My Paranormals
Ever since I read Tolkien as a kid, I’ve loved the fantasy world of Fairies and Elves. Years ago, I discovered Karen Marie Moning’s books and couldn’t get enough of her contemporary heroines, sexy Scottish druids and the Fae world of the Tuatha Dé Danaan. Her books inspired me to create a mystical world for my own characters to dwell in.
Thus my Alfarian World was created. The Alfar in my stories are a noble race of elves who inhabit beautiful kingdoms in Alfheim, a dimension closely associated to Earth. Finn is an Alfarian elf who lives with us mortals after he was exiled from Alfheim due to his propensity to play games with humans. Finn can’t deny the entertainment he gleans from his games, but he also has a theory to prove and while doing so he provides humans with a much needed match-making service. All the better when he succeeds in pushing people out of their comfort zones—now that’s entertainment!
