In the First Era, before Kaliel and Krishani fell in love, Tor runs. He escapes the Land of Kings and the tyrannical Valtanyana. In the depths of Tempia he forges weapons-- The Flames-- strong enough to oppose the Kings he betrayed.

Aria, The Amethyst Flame, cannot touch the living or the dead and her kin are silent ghosts. Hidden in a cairn deep in the haunted forest, Aria becomes obsessed with the Ferryman, the only boy who can feel her touch.

Before Aria knows it, The Flames, The Ferryman and Tor are swept up in the first war against the Valtanyana.

Can you share your playlist from writing ‘Skeleton & Dust’ ?

I actually didn’t use a lot of songs when writing Skeleton & Dust, but here are the top three that I listened to while in the trenches.

1. Wolf and I by Oh Land

The lyrics to this piece and the feel of the music really bring you into Tempia and the weird land I created here. I really believe this is the theme song for this book.

2. Until We Bleed by Lykke Li

Another beautiful and sad song. I listened to this during a lot of the quieter scenes in this novella.

3. Snuff by Slipknot

Not much for their masks and on stage presence, or for their grunting lyrics but this song, this song isn’t like the others that they’ve done and it’s pretty.


Tension seemed to coil his shoulders. “You wouldn’t remember my name if I told it to you.”
“Why?” Aria spoke the question aloud but only because another part of her was working so hard on memorizing every detail of him, from the lines of his face, down to the way the corner of his mouth tightened whenever she opened her mouth. If it were up to her, she’d never forget a single thing about him.
“You ask too many questions, youngling.”
“Aria…my name is Aria.”
The Ferryman huffed, putting his hands into the opposite sleeves of his cloak and folding them across his torso. He changed direction at a fork in the road, and Aria wondered how he knew where the cairn was. “Kallow.”
“I’m sorry?”
“Kallow is the name I prefer.”
“And the long name?”
“Krishani Mekallow Mekelle Tavesin,” he rattled off, slurring the words together so, to Aria, they didn’t make a lot of sense.
She let out a sigh. “I like Kallow.”
“It means hero.”
