Grey Stone is a young adult fantasy novel that brings us back to dark times. Where myths and legends wander the earth and equality is a utopia that humans cannot even fathom. Join the characters of Grey Stone on the journey of a lifetime to restore balance, and bring an end to the land of the great red sun.

 

In the land of the great red sun, dogs sing, wolves kill, humans serve, and wolf-shifters rule with magic and menace. Pietre is a human boy who has spent the last thirteen years afraid of the sunset, the Blødguard, and the wolf-shifting masters who rule his world. Wittendon is a werewolf prince who has spent the last nineteen years afraid of his father, his inability to do magic, and the upcoming tournament he’s sure to lose. But when Pietr

 

e finds an orphaned pup in the woods and Wittendon is forced to arrest the boy’s father soon after, both of them begin to realize that keeping the rules might be just as terrifying as breaking them. Now serf and master must learn to cut through their own prejudices and work together in order to turn their world before it turns on them. Grey Stone is a story of dogs who talk, wolves who kill, and a stone that-for better or worse-can change all that.

Cover Grey Lore

Grey Lore is a young adult paranormal retelling of the werewolf legends. It’s a fresh new look at the origins of the human-werewolf-dog relationship that has readers on the edge of their seats! The positive reviews just keep on coming in.

Despite the perks of living with her rich aunt, Ella’s new life in Napper, Indiana, is pretty much tragically boring. Until Ella starts hearing strange voices.
As rogue wolves begin to stalk the edges of town and a serial killer with a penchant for silver bullets draws closer, the city of Napper seems to wake up.
Ella, with her new friends, Sam and Sarah, might be able to find out what the strange occurrences mean. Except that they’re all being pulled in different directions by people who love them; and some who don’t.
Before they lose their way to the whispers they hear from the past or the call to a future they’re not sure they want to create, the friends will need to confront who they really are and figure out what’s hiding in the silence of their sleepy little town.

Front_Debris Book.pngDebris started off as a completely different novel. The original novel was a story made of three parts and Andre was the main character in one of those stories. Most of the characters were the same, but their relationships were different and once Andre met Erin in the estate (instead of the minor character she was originally), everything changed. Lorna says “all the characters had already taken their place and had been waiting for Erin to come along and change the game.

The author, L.M. Brown has been writing for at least 13 years whenever she gets the chance. She earned an MFA in cLM Bown Headshotreative writing from Emerson College, and her stories have been published in numerous magazines.
