ONE WAY FARE, Null City Book 1

It would have been nice if someone told them the angels were all on the other side.

Superpowers suck. If you just want to live a normal life, Null City is only a Metro ride away. After one day there, imps become baristas, and hellhounds become poodles. Demons settle down, become parents, join the PTA, and worry about their taxes.

ONE WAY FARE: readers' choice Fantasy/SciFi winner of Golden Rose for 2015

Null City is the only sanctuary for Gaby Parker and Leila Rice, two young women confronting cataclysmic forces waging an unseen war between Heaven and Hell. Gaby and her younger brother and sister are already targets in the war that cost their parents’ lives.

Meanwhile, Leila has inherited a French chateau, a mysterious legacy, and a prophecy that she will end the world. Gaby and Leila become catalysts for the founding and survival of Null City.

imgres-1What reviewers are saying about ONE WAY FARE:

“a great romp through time and across continents, with lots of mystery and romance to keep things interesting”– Kassandra Lamb, author of The Kate Huntington Mysteries

“…an amazing story of fantasy, time and dimension travel and strong heroines with superpowers.” Between the Lines Bookblog

“Highly creative and very well written… There are many surprises along the way, the reveal of Leila’s father to name by one and plenty of moments that will bring you a smile and have you chuckling throughout the tale. I loved the term ‘Celestially disabled’ in particular and the name of Leila’s coffee shop – priceless! And no I’m not giving that away here…”Georgia Rose, bestselling author of The Grayson Trilogy

“How can you not love a tale that makes witty pop-culture references to such things as the Evil Overlords list, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Star Trek/Star Wars debate, and the Princess Bride?” –LR Barlow, Award-winning author of romance, contemporary, historical fiction

“What an awesome combination of real characters, fascinating world, and exciting action! Great read! This one kept me reading all the way through to the very satisfying end!” — Mary Rosenblum, best-selling author and instructor at the prestigious Clarion West Writers Workshop
