These Are Your Books
I wrote them for you.
Skylar Southmartin is not the naïve girl she was a short year ago. She’s made some mistakes and learned a few secrets to life, all the while clinging to the faith her mother instilled in her as a child…in herself.
Now that Skylar has discovered her life’s purpose within the pages of the ancient Book of Sophia, she knows what she must do: restore a vital memory to the Akashic Library, located deep within the Underworld of Earth.
This library is sought after by a select few, for they know the future of human potential rests at its core.
Meanwhile, Devlin Grayer has been elected as the forty-sixth President of the United States. His wife, Milicent, is miserable in her new role as First Lady-especially because the Great Mothers have asked her to use her new status to help their cause, and she has no interest in tackling the task.
With the help of friends in the unlikeliest of places, Skylar’s journey reveals the significance of the darkness within all of us, and its potential to save or destroy the most precious part of us all: our soul.
“In this captivating and explosive story, Skylar must make choices that will indefinitely alter her own life and the lives of everyone around her.”
Once the Greeks forced their male gods upon the world, the belief in the power of women was severed. For centuries it has been thought that the wisdom of the high priestesses perished at the hand of the patriarch- but now the ancient Book of Sophia has surfaced. Its pages contain the truths hidden by history and the sacred knowledge for the coming age. And it is looking for Skylar Southmartin.
Busy picking up the pieces after her mother’s untimely death and working toward her veterinary degree, twenty-year-old Skylar has no idea that she is the link between four mystical women in her life, and the perfect storm the Great Mothers have been waiting for. She’s just reconnected with her first love, Argan- a connection that Joshua, a dangerous stranger, is threatening to destroy. But before long, love is the last thing on her mind, as unraveling family secrets shatter her views of the world. As the full extent of the task before her is revealed, Skylar must fight off Joshua’s maddening pull and get a handle on her budding powers…before it’s too late.
Sky of Water
The final installment of the Equal Night Trilogy will put Skylar to her biggest test to date. Taken by Magus through the alchemical door in the Quine library, she quickly remembers her strange surroundings and the reason she’s been brought back to the First Age. Here, she will have to rely on her own magic to navigate the overlapping timelines that will allow her to rewrite history. But if she’s not careful, she could destroy it completely.
Back home, it will take every one of those she loves to execute Ocean’s plan.
Argan has the biggest role among them, assigned the impossible task of retrieving Skylar, something he’s been training for his entire life.
Meanwhile a woman now sits in the Oval Office as the corrupt scaffolding of the US government collapses around her. Mica Noxx has a vision for the US, one that returns it to the original intention of the Founding Fathers. In the culmination of the Equal Night Trilogy, with Skylar held in the First Age and Mica planted in current day, they have one shot to banish the darkness that’s held control for millennia, and return the United States to its trajectory as the New Atlantis.
Knowing no one can tackle the world alone, she enlists the help of those she dares let near her when she comes up against resistance in the form of the First Lady of the United States, Lucifer, himself and her own grandmother.
Skylar will be tested many times along her journey by those she trusts and those she cant.
It won’t be until the last battle is fought to see who is left standing, those entrenched in the dark, or those fighting toward the light.
Excerpt from Alchemy's Air
“Have you truly sacrificed?” Diana asked. “The road to destiny is not true unless paved with great sacrifice. Your rune will mend the Akasha with one final act.”
“Sacrifice? Are you kidding me?” Skylar could feel her blood heat up within her veins. “My mother is dead because of this quest.I live the rest of my life without her. That is the biggest sacrifice of all.”
Now it was Diana’s turn to anger. “I’m so sorry you lost your mum, how horrible for you. I lost my life at eighteen and took innocent lives with me. That couple had a small child. Think of her, that girl that has lived her whole life not knowing either of her parents.” Her eyes shot to Suki and then back to Skylar. “You talk about sacrifice but you are selfish! There isn’t a person walking the earth that doesn’t feel the sting of loss. True sacrifice is in the courage to move forward in the love you give, not the loss you bear.”
Skylar stood in disbelief. She was being scolded for mourning her mother.
“You are not mourning, Skylar,” Diana said, reading her mind. “You are consumed by the cross you carry. A true warrior grows big enough to absorb it and become more than an old story.”

Excerpt from Alchemy's Air
“The act of sexual intercourse is the human desire to unite the two aspects of our being, regardless of sexual orientation.” Origen said. “Each one of us has both of these principles within us and we seek balance. It is in sexual union that we look to complete ourselves and connect to the love force we desperately want to return to. Sometimes one is stronger, then it reverses and the other takes over. It is the dance of two becoming one.” He stood up in the circle. “There is tremendous heat generated during sexual union. We use our bodies to transmute energy, we are alchemists!” His excitement rose. “We create life with this magic!” he shouted. “But creating life is just one result of sexual energy. It’s actually a very small one. Most of the time, the energy of a climax dissipates, wasted in the act itself. But I ask you, what if one never climaxed? Where would that energy go? What would you create?” He pointed around the circle. “Worlds! I tell you! Worlds!” He shook his fists at the ceiling.
