Welcome to the roads of my imagination... 
an oak lined, cobblestone road that always leads to adventure
Tales of the Gearblade

The Gearblade, a mechanical folding sword, forged from a fallen star in the flames of old traditions, but engineered for the coming century.


As the world transitions from myth and magic into the mechanized industries, Georgia Bennett stands on the line between the two, protecting a world trying to brick over what lies in the shadows.


With airships cutting through the clouds and submarines slipping beneath the waves, a secret society of sword masters continue the ever-lasting duel against the mythical creatures of darkness. In the Order, swords retain memories, and she must find one to learn the truth about her mentor’s killer and complete a quest Georgia knows nothing about.


Time is against her as she travels from the Highlands of Scotland, to the Aircities of France, and the depths of the ocean as she tracks down a hellgate before it can be opened.

The Airdrainium Adventures

Anderax Grayvenhorn has spent his whole life traveling to the aircities in his parent’s dirigible, with one dream… to climb a real tree.

As tensions rise, he finds the key to saving the aircities and the dragons is not a destiny of war, but to become one of the legendary Peacecrafters.

With interior illustrations by Jennifer Stolzer!
