The Spoken Mage is my first non-fairy tale YA fantasy series. It features Elena, who lives in a world where the mageborn wield power with written words. As a commonborn she shouldn't be able to safely wield power at all—and she certainly shouldn't be able to do it with spoken words. Elena has the potential to change her world—but first she has to survive the Royal Academy, a host of mageborn…and Prince Lucas.

The Hidden Mage series continues the story begun in The Spoken Mage series. It follows Elena's daughter, Verene, who is sent to the Kallorwegian Academy for her mage training. As the daughter of an immensely powerful mage, Verene's biggest challenge is that she has no power herself. She is confronted with Darius, the crown prince of Kallorway, a powerful mage with a powerless father (Prince Cassius from the Spoken Mage series).

The new series is set at a new Academy, once more beginning at first year. You can expect Verene and Darius's worlds to expand as the series progresses.
