Others, like the new Magic & Machinery series, I just wanted to delve into something completely unique. I love the Sherlock Holmes books and wanted to introduce that style of character into a combination of steampunk and fantasy. I'm glad you're enjoying my books!(less)

“Um," Sean began. "Who is that? What is her current relationship status? Why does she seem to like you?"
"Her name is Sammy," Xander laughed. "She's a new student. We met in class."
"I want one.”
Jon Messenger, Wind Warrior

“She's a Fire Warrior."
Giovanni whistled into the night air. "Oh yeah, that makes it complicated. It's a good thing you have me for a teacher."
Xander propped himself up on an elbow. "Why? What is it you're going to teach me?"
"First thing I will teach you is how to pick a better girl.”
Jon Messenger, Wind Warrior

“If the city has failed to definitively prove the existence of werewolves, we'll go find evidence elsewhere."
Luthor frowned. "Would this 'elsewhere' be beyond the wall, in the territory of the werewolves?"
Simon smiled at his friend's discomfort. "Indeed it would be."
"I'm going to need a thicker jacket," Luthor sighed.”
