I am currently writing the first in a series of four fantasy novels, COMPENDIUM. COMPENDIUM follows the story of a young woman betrayed by her father and indentured to secretive organization. She learns the true meaning family after she must confront her own betrayals.
Leading a sheltered and often solitary life, Mia Jayne is confused when her father falls critically ill and insists that she carry a missive to the Order of Vis Firmitas. Desperate to help, Mia dutifully travels from her remote hammock on the outskirts of Aquakinus to the archipelago city of Summa Felicitas, where she presents the letter to the Order and pleads her father’s case. Mia is shocked when the Order announces that her father has traded succor for her apprenticeship. Through servitude, Mia is forced to examine her beliefs about trust, acceptance, and family. When a powerful artifact comes into her possession, is Mia able to harness its potential to save herself and her family, or does she bring ruin down upon herself and all of Aquakinus?
