Pinehurst -  Author's Notes                              

When creating a book series, writing notes is crucial to keeping everything straight. Here is a list of characters, class info, and a few extras that were used for reference.


Pinehurst News:

Book 3: Hades' Curse, to be released Winter 2014

Book 4: The Fight for Mt. Olympus, to be released 2015

Updated: October 20, 2014

Immortal Wounds News:

Because my readers are primarily young adults, as of November 1, 2012, a revised, “cleaner” second edition of Immortal Wounds was made available for download. If you have already purchased it, you may get the new version for free. Simply un-register your reading devise and register it once more. This will allow the new version to appear. Kindle Direct and Nook advise that this is done from time to time to ensure that the most current downloads are available to you.

Pinehurst Book Two: The Search for the Oracle

Located in Megera

Lupercal Cave: beneath the remains of Emperor Augustus’ palace on the Palatine Hill.



Megera was one of the furies, sister to Allecto and Tisiphonie, Daughters of the night. They lived in the Underworld.



Greek: Melia

Species: Fraxinus ornus

Description: A small spring-flowering deciduous tree. It secretes a sweet sap known as manna in July and August which was harvested by the ancients. Manna was believed to be closely related to honey (the word for both was meli in Greek). The tree was said to have been first sprung from the blood of heaven, and its manna was often described as the sky-fallen juice of the stars. The stem of the young ash was in the crafting spear-shafts.

Sacred to: Zeus (manna juice), Kouretes & Ares (ash-spears)

Myth 1: Nymphai Meliai. The Meliai were the Nymphs of the manna ash-tree who were born from the blood of the castrated Ouranos which splattered upon the earth. They were entrusted with the raising of the infant Zeus whom they fed on the honey and the milk of the goat Amaltheia. The Meliai were also the ancestress of mankind. (Source: Hesiod, Apollodorus, Callimachus, et al)

Myth 2: Pelian Ash Spear. The spear of Akhilleus, the great hero of the Trojan War, was crafted by the centaur Kheiron for his father Peleus from an ash growing on Mount Pelion. (Source: Homer, Apollodorus, et al)
