THE OTHERWORLD TRILOGY
If you are planning on beginning the Otherworld Series, I would recommend reading the original trilogy first, told from Meghan's point of view: Faelorehn, Dolmarehn, and Luathara. 

BOOK ONE

Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color, and she hears and sees things no one else can.  When the visions and voices in her head grow worse, Meghan believes she is going crazy.  That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up with answers of his own . . .

BOOK TWO

A year ago Meghan learned she was Faelorehn, an immortal from the Otherworld.  Now she must learn how to balance her life in the mortal world with the one that waits for her in Eile, a life that includes the wrath of a vindictive Celtic goddess and her minions.  Fortunately, she has the intriguing Caedehn MacRoich to help her . . .

Ehriad can be read between Dolmarehn and Luathara, but I would recommend reading Ghalien after you've finished Luathara first (unless you don't mind spoilers ;))

EHRIAD - A NOVELLA OF THE OTHERWORLD
Three scenes from Faelorehn told from Cade's point of view.

Caedehn MacRoich is Ehriad, a faelah bounty hunter.  When he is compelled to deal with a collection of Otherworldly monsters in the mortal world, he stumbles upon a familiar stream of Faelorehn magic that leads him to something astonishing . . . Three scenes from Faelorehn told from Cade's perspective.

Caedehn MacRoich was sent to the mortal world to hunt down the Morrigan's renegade faelah.  He never meant to stumble upon Meghan Elam, nor did he expect to fall in love with her.  When Cade breaks his geis in order to protect Meghan, the Morrigan demands penance for his disobedience . . . A short novel told from Cade's perspective.

LOREHNIN - A NOVEL OF THE OTHERWORLD
Lorehnin is the first novel in the Otherworld Series that tells Robyn and Devlin's story, told from Robyn's perspective.  This story starts out a few years after Meghan and Cade's story ends in the Otherworld Trilogy.  I would recommend reading Ghalien first, since it introduces Devlin and part of the Otherworld that will play a bigger part in future books told from Robyn's perspective.

Two years out of high school, and at the start of her sophomore year in college, Robyn Dunbarre is working her way toward a business degree.  What Robyn hadn't planned on, however, was getting caught up in the business of the Otherworld.  Life really starts to get interesting, and complicated, when an incredibly good-looking young man from Eile shows up and saves her from the unwanted attention of a local demonic gang . . .

CAELIHN - A NOVEL OF THE OTHERWORLD
Caelihn is the follow up to Lorehnin but not the true sequel.  This book is a short novel and takes place right after Lorehnin.  Caelihn features four of the major characters in the Otherworld Series: Robyn, Devlin, Meghan and Cade.

A few scant months ago Robyn Dunbarre, with the help of Devlin O’Brolaigh, managed to escape the claws of a sadistic Otherworldly mage with her life barely intact. Now living in Eilé, Robyn is eager to track down her Lorehnin roots. Devlin believes they should start searching among the Amsíhría, the women of the Otherworld with the power to appease Eilé’s wild, and sometimes volatile, weather.

FAELEAHN - A NOVELLA OF THE OTHERWORLD
Faeleahn is a short story that picks up after Luathara.  This book switches perspectives between Meghan and Cade as they travel between the mortal world and the Otherworld to spread the word about their upcoming marriage.

Cade and Meghan are ready to pledge their souls to one another in a traditional bonding ceremony of Eilé. But before the ceremony can take place they must inform everyone of their intentions. Although the goal is to share the news of their upcoming wedding, the faelah bounty hunter and the princess of Erintara grow even closer as their love is reflected back to them by those they hold most dear.

AUDIOBOOKS

There is exciting news in the world of Eile!  I am currently working on creating the audio editions of the Otherworld novels and novellas.  Four are already complete, and the rest are either in the works or will soon be in production.  Now you can listen to Meghan's and Cade's story while commuting to work or school, tidying the house, cooking dinner, exercising, or simply sitting at home with a warm blanket and a nice cup of tea or cocoa ;).  Audiobooks are a wonderful option for those of us who can't seem to find the time to sit down and read a good book.

***NOW AVAILABLE!***


FAELOREHN
BOOK ONE OF THE OTHERWORLD TRILOGY
I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn’t look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely. I was either saving myself from that serial killer I always imagined lived down in the swamp, or I had finally gone over the deep end . . . 

Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.

Cade brings her news of another realm where goblins and gnomes are the norm, a place where whispering spirits exist in the very earth, and a world where Meghan just might find the answers she has always sought.

*One of my favorite fantasies
I loved hearing this book for the first time.  I was already a fan.
-James C.

DOLMAREHN

BOOK TWO OF THE OTHERWORLD TRILOGY
“Do you trust me Meghan?”
His voice was soft, almost pleading. I swallowed and tried hard to discern his expression in the dark. The paltry amount of light reaching this far into the small cavern glinted off his eyes, giving him the appearance of a demon trying to tempt me into doing something evil.
“Yes,” I answered, my own voice a mere whisper, “I trust you.”
“Good.” 

He gave my hand a quick squeeze, and then I was pulled forward into the icy abyss that loomed before us . . . 

A year ago, Meghan Elam learned that she was Faelorehn, a being of the Otherworld. Immortal. Now she must juggle her life in the mortal world with the one she has started to build in the Otherworld. However, keeping her identity secret from her friends and family while trying to avoid a wrathful Celtic goddess is no easy task. 


With the help of the intriguing Cade MacRoich, Meghan will learn that not only does she come from a place full of magic and wonder but that she, too, is far more powerful than she ever thought possible.

LUATHARA

BOOK THREE OF THE OTHERWORLD TRILOGY
Suddenly, my pain and anger honed themselves into a sharp point, one aimed directly at the goddess's heart. She had been controlling Cade's life, my life, for far too long. And then, in a powerful wave of realization strong enough to sweep the frantic tornado in my mind off course and force the air from my lungs, I understood what I needed to do....

Meghan Elam knows that she belongs in the Otherworld, but she doesn't know if she's quite ready to take that leap. With Cade on the mend and her mortal family aware of their daughter's true identity, everything seems lined up for her to make a smooth transition into her new life. Unfortunately, Meghan has a mortal enemy, an angry goddess who has not yet given up on her chance for revenge.
As Meghan struggles to find her place in Eile, secrets from a past she knows nothing about well up and threaten to tip the scales even further. And when the Morrigan vows to bring a war down upon the Otherworld, she finds herself stuck in the middle of an epic battle, one that promises to destroy all that she holds dear. In order to save the ones she loves the most, Meghan must be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice and hope that she'll be strong enough to vanquish her enemy once and for all.

What Listeners are Saying ...

*Great characters!  Very entertaining and well done!
My problem with most audio books is that the readers are often too stiff. The narrator here does a wonderful job of telling the story as though we are all gathered around the campfire. Great fun!
-Mike A.

*Great! Even Better as an Audio Book! 
I am a big fan of the Otherworld series and was eager to read more. Ehriad adds another interesting dimension and continues to weave the Otherworld magic ... He (the narrator) truly brought Cade to life with his smooth, easy voice and Irish brogue. I could listen to him all day.
-J.M. Self


GHALIEN

A NOVEL OF THE OTHERWORLD


At the end of the long hallway I stepped through the broken stone and out onto the terrace behind the castle. The waterfall cascading down the steep hillside overwhelmed me with its mist, but I brushed aside its icy chill and headed for the second staircase that led into the caverns. Using touch alone, I located the dolmarehn that would take me to the foot of the Weald and stepped through. As the magic overcame me, I thought about Meghan, telling myself she was safe under Fergus's care and that soon I would see her familiar face once again.


Caedehn MacRoich was sent to the mortal world for one purpose: to hunt the Morrigan's renegade faelah. But he never anticipated stumbling upon Meghan Elam, a young woman from his own realm, nor did he expect to fall in love with her. Fate, however, had other plans for Cade and when he broke his own geis to keep Meghan safe, the Morrigan demanded retribution for his disobedience. Now, in order to guarantee Meghan's safety Cade must make a sacrifice that very well may drive him mad.


With the Celtic goddess of war playing tricks with his mind, Cade is called upon to perform another duty. The Amsihria of the north, an elusive sect of women responsible for taming Eile's powerful weather, are under attack by a horrible monster from another realm. With the help of his sister and her companions, Cade embarks on a journey that will take him beyond the edge of the Weald and further away from Meghan. Along the way he will be forced to contend with the Morrigan's continuous assaults as well as his own doubts and fears, all the while knowing that the young woman he's grown to love remains vulnerable in the mortal world.
