Frequently Asked Questions
When is your next book coming out?
The second book in the Diviner's Legacy series, In the Case of Our Fate, is set to be released for global distribution on November 9th, 2021.
Can I purchase multiple copies of your book at a discounted rate?
Yes! Currently When the Divine Are Dead is the only book where purchasing multiple copies (in bulk) at a discounted rate is possible. Purchases will need to go through Ingram iPage (You can copy & paste this link: https://ipage.ingramcontent.com/ipage/li001.jsp) to set up or login to your account.
Are your books available in bookstores?
When the Divine Are Dead is currently available to purchase online at many book retailers. It is unlikely; however, not impossible, to find it on the shelves in physical bookstores. I currently do not have a consignment contract with a specific bookstore, but that doesn't mean that nobody sells it. Many booksellers will order a copy for you if they don't have it in stock.
Why can't I purchase the Brunswick Saga books anymore?
The Brunswick Saga books (A Brother's Sacrifice and A Sister's Imposition) are currently out of print. However, chapters of these books written from 1st-person point-of-view are being posted weekly on www.thebrunswicksaga.wordpress.com and are available to read for free.
Do you have any suggestions for diabetes charities/organizations I can donate to?

It can be difficult to narrow the list of nonprofits to organizations that benefit people with diabetes more than the organization itself. However, Healthline noted several charities back in 2017 that may be good choices like—
What/Who are your sources for the information about the Romani people in your writing?
It is important to note that much of the cultural information I utilize in the Diviner's Legacy series does not reflect the cultural practices or beliefs of all Romani people. Because the diviners (who are fictional) come from a variety of vitsas (Romani subgroups), there tends to be a mix of practices and beliefs among them. This can be noticed, however subtly, in the differences between several characters and their families. Some characters come from more conservative and/or traditional backgrounds than others.
Do you donate to any charities?
As of June 2021, I have donated many of my proceeds to a charity every month. Here is the complete list (last updated in June 2021)—
I am a teacher. Can I teach your books to my class?
