HOOAH!! I am so excited for you to read and journey with Willow Metcalfe in her story, WILLOW, which is NOW AVAILABLE across online retail sites. When you dive in, you’ll recognize larger-than-life character, Chijioke Okorie, who is best friends with Cole “Tox” Russell of The Tox Files. BUY WILLOW NOW!!! . Each book in The Metcalfes confronts human trafficking, and I readily admit that they are not easy reads. In my fiction, I have never shied from the raw, but I do my best to also not glorify said rawness. Never do I want to tame or romanticize, in effect, the pain and horrible situations thousands across our globe face or are ensnared in. However, I know some readers …

Willow Cover Reveal

HOOAH!! Here she is, WILLOW, Book 2 in the Metcalfes. Canyon’s little sister in the fight of her life! She’s been around the world, seen it all, and has come to easily recognize heroes—her brothers, after all, are some of the world’s finest. For that reason, she’s confounded by one of the captors holding her, her team, and two dozen Nigerians hostage. The man seems … familiar. Join Willow Metcalfe as she and her friends fight for freedom in Spring 2022. I’m really happy with how her cover came out thanks to Jenny Zemenk. Willow has a lot of playful spunk but is hardcore focused on her work with MiLE at a humanitarian compound. The entire Metcalfes series will confront …

I’m thrilled with this cover, as it’s perfect and conveys the right message for this installment in my much-beloved series.

Ronie Uncategorized 2 Comments

TITLE REVEAL!!!! Here it is, y’all!!! Droseran Saga #3, which releases in June 2022 from Enclave Publishing, is titled: ***SHADOW OF HONOR*** There are so many nuances and layers to this story. You might’ve seen over the last year while we were in the agonizing throes (no, really!) of getting a home built, I made a plea with my publisher to let me break book 3 into two parts. Truth be told, I was so worried about word count that I was ready to walk away so I could publish this one on my own and do what I felt needed to be done. But thank God I have an amazing publisher who said quite simply, “Do what needs to …

Kardia Illustration Reveal!

Ronie Uncategorized 7 Comments

ILLUSTRATION REVEAL!!! Look at this gorgeous rendering of KARDIA, the capital of Kalonica and residence of the royal family from the Droseran Saga. Originally when I wrote of Kardia, I had something in mind that more resembled Kensington Palace, but as this illustration came to life, I realized I had it wrong. The royal residence would not be simple, not in Kalonica. Not as the most powerful realm on Drosero, home to centuries of medoras. So, I let the incredible Laura Hollingsworth take the lead and was thrilled with how it came out. You will see much more of Kardia in DAWN OF VENGEANCE as well as the third book. REMEMBER: PREORDER DAWN OF VENGEANCE now and submit your receipt …
