Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.

Sample an excerpt below

Keeper of Reign

Do your troubles sometimes look so big, and you feel too small to overcome them? You are not alone.

Jules Blaze knows exactly what it means to be a small person in a too big world. His people, the Elfies, faced a curse which reduced them to a fragment of their former selves and glory. Join him in his perilous adventures. And misadventures.

Can Jules overcome the woes he and his family face? Will he? Will you?

Keeper of Reign is a High Fantasy, YA fiction for readers age 12 and up.

How the adventure began…

Someone or something is out to get Jules Blaze, main protagonist of Keeper of Reign. He looks for answers in all the wrong places. He even ends up in the land of their enemies, the Handoverans, to look for Keepers and the Ancient Books – books penned in blood, by the King, before the Majesty mysteriously disappeared centuries ago.

But true answers only come when Jules looks into the Ancient Books. Therein lies the answers he desperately needs, to first save his family, and also his Kingdom. But like anything in life, Jules’s search for help and truth, comes with a price. And is Jules willing to pay this price?


Books written in blood. Most of them lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell the people of Reign and their surrounding neighbors who blame them for this. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen year old Jules Blaze. Or could it?

Something in the air is brewing and Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his army of Scorpents will invade and destroy the Kingdom of Reign and the Elfies. Already Gehzurolle’s agents, secreted in Reign, are ready to do their master’s bidding.

But for Jules his nightmare has only just begun. Especially since he and his family have inadvertently invoked the interest of Gehzurolle. But why?

In his quest to find answers, and to locate the Ancient Books, Jules loses control over his situations, faces one dilemma after another to save his family, and his Kingdom, and uncovers a family secret that could save his family, and possibly reverse the curse Reign was under. If Jules doesn't get himself killed first.


Jules Blaze, age sixteen, and heir of a Keeper, who suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. And hates the idea that he has to care for his four (yes, so many,) younger siblings. So uncool, as far as he's concerned. Until.

The other Blaze siblings:

Ralston, thirteen years old and budding artist who can invent just about anything. If he can overcome his slowness!

Bitha, ten-year-old sister, with flowing jet black hair, and a caring personality, and definitely not keen on adventures.

Tst Tst, pronounced Sit Sit, and also known as Miss Big Words due to her profuse vocabulary which she uses freely unless her life is in danger, which is about almost all the time in Reign these days. She is eight.

Topee, three years old, lisps and nothing much escapes her sharp eyes. Much to Jules's annoyance.

Erin and John Blaze, parents to the Blaze kids.


Miranda, daughter of Saul Turpentine, and closest neighbor of the Blazes. Also a subject of much interest for both Holden and Jules.

Holden Lacework and his mother, Jessie Lacework are also close neighbors of the Blazes.



The Handoverans hate the Elfies and have always blamed them for the curse. Hence the constant war between the two races.

The Evil Lord, Gehzurolle and his army of Scorpents. Their headquarters is in Euruliaf across the River, Brooke Beginning, in the Handover side of the territory.

Gehzurolle's other agents of the nights.
