One Night –
A Masquerade under a sky stamped with the silhouettes of airships.
Two Races –
Olympians and Titans living in the automaton luxury of steam technology.
Three Fates –
Who impose the death penalty on interracial relations.
Four Oracles –
Give an Olympian girl and a Titan boy a prophecy.
As a punishment for The Great War between the Titans and Olympians eons ago, the Fates laid down strict segregation laws between the two races that hold fast in this era of airships and glistening automaton cities. When an undeniable attraction transcends the masks and anonymity of the annual Masquerade, eighteen-year-old Titan Lucas Vassallo must make a brutal decision – sacrifice everything for the enticing Olympian Pandora Rines, or submit to the age-old laws no one questions. In the midst of a world taut under the strain of segregation, their defiance of the Fates may cost them their lives.
CHILDREN OF THE GODS is a modern YA steampunk Romeo and Juliet twisted up in the Greek myth of Eros and Psyche. It is complete at 75,000 words and is the first in a planned 2-book series with ideas for companion novels.
When I’m not feverishly carving words from my brain, I dye my hair crazy ombre colors, plan more tattoos, wrangle my children, and write both YA and Adult Romance. I’ve been obsessed with Greek mythology since I was a little girl. I fell in love with the story of the Titanomachy and the myth of Eros and Psyche and wondered what would happen if, in some alternate history of our planet, it were all true.
