The Sand Dancer Series
A Young Adult Fantasy Series
The Sand Dancer Series is a Young Adult fantasy adventure of fire magic, sword dancing, secrets, and revenge!
Only monsters summon fire by magic. It’s a sin against the sun god and a crime against the king. The punishment is death.
But when sixteen-year-old Mina discovers fire magic runs in her family’s blood, it’s just the beginning of the secrets her father has been keeping from her.
Join Mina on an adventure that will span kingdoms as she fights to protect the Fire Walkers from forces that would see them killed or enslaved, and discover far deadlier enemies waiting in the shadows.

When her father’s murder reveals a lifetime of lies, a half-starved peasant girl must disguise herself as a young nobleman if she hopes to make her way into the heart of her enemies. But what is she truly after—the truth or revenge?
When her kingdom starts rounding up anyone with fire magic to fight and die on the frontlines of a pointless war, a brash young warrior must decide how much is too much for her people to give up in order to stop the violence.
