The Movement of Rings
~Sequel to The Movement of Crowns~
A time to remember what lies deeper than one’s fears…
The Mundayne empire has seen years of prosperity under the rule of King Aud, a man of war known the world over for his ruthlessness. Naona, a high-spirited imperial servant who holds Aud’s favor, occupies herself with pulling pranks on her peers around the king’s estate, but the time for laughter spoils when the citizens of Munda begin to oppose increasing taxation. After meeting the princess of Diachona, Naona finds herself having to choose between maintaining loyalty to her king and becoming a personal ally of another nation. With the rise of unrest in Munda, can Naona’s heart survive intact: intact enough, even, for an unforeseen chance at love with a foreign man?

The Movement of Crowns
~First in the Movement of Crowns Series!~
The nation of Diachona is celebrating the twentieth birthday and rite of passage for Constance, the Diachonian king’s daughter and heir. Yet, the pause for festivity doesn’t erase collective doubts about Constance’s aspiration for a place with the men on the National Council, nor does it eliminate fears roused by oppressive threats from a neighboring, powerful empire. Amid increasing rumors of war and personal misgivings about her own future, Constance deems this an inopportune time to be falling in love with one Commander Alexander. Will Providence keep them all through international tensions and the changing of times, or is Diachona watching its territory in vain?

“Great characters, stunning plot, and a thought-provoking message make this a story worth reading. 5/5–great!” ~Kelly Smith Reviews

“This book had a way of pulling you in… maybe it was a little bit of magic… The royal family of Diachona is amazing!” ~Tell Tale Book Reviews
“The Movement of Crowns is charming with a bite of political intrigue. Readers are left at the end of the novel with the sense that they’ve read something unique and special.” ~Rabid Readers Reviews

From the first time Lorraine, a plucky and competitive girl, contends on the playground against Isaiah, an impish boy whose smile gleams in more ways than one, the two of them can’t help knowing each other.

A remarkable year of change and discovery awaits Bless Heggins, a shy, young African-American woman with a hidden gift. She wouldn’t call herself a friend of the two, very different young men who’ve frequented her home for the past four years, T’meal and Lamall—so why would God let Bless know that she will soon have to help both of them? Perhaps it’s because T’meal strangely passes up the opportunity of a lifetime after high school, or maybe it has something to do with Lamall’s personal world of girlfriends, crime, and family dysfunction that’s whirling out of control. As Bless tries to determine what she should do about these young men, she ultimately has to confront her own deep-seated fears. It’ll take both pain and healing for Bless to better learn what it means for her to fervently pray.
