The Abandoned Realm

When writers give up on a story, they banish the hero to the Abandoned Realm. As belief in the power and magic of fiction dwindles, the boundary between the real world and the Realm weakens, leading to their slow poisoning.


A hero-turned-villain seeks revenge by exploiting the weakness in the boundary, causing a flood of bloodthirsty monsters and dark magic to engulf San Francisco. To seal the portal, Bex, a failed writer, and Talera, her resentful Elven warrior, must overcome inner demons and defeat the attackers in the city.


For fans of The Library of the Unwritten and Marvel's Thor, The Abandoned Realm is a standalone contemporary fantasy. Now available in print, ebook, and audiobook.
