The Council Trilogy

I’m excited to share details about my thrilling urban fantasy series, The Council Trilogy, with the first book, The Others, coming this fall. Look for The Gift and The Campaign in 2025!

Much as she wishes otherwise, superstar political consultant Olivia Shepherd was born a powerful empath. It’s a legacy she walked away from long ago—but when she wakes up one morning to find Elsa, a tenacious time-walker, standing in her kitchen, she realizes she can no longer ignore her gifts. She is quickly plunged into the hidden world of powerful “Others” and drafted to work for the Council, a shadowy organization that summons the fog to San Francisco to obscure their involvement in human affairs. Complicating matters further is Olivia’s new love interest, William, a centuries-old vampire. As shocking details from Olivia’s past emerge and her role in the Council begins to take shape, will she rise to the challenge of her destiny?
