Happy TurtleBorn in Kansas and born again at age six, Robynn wrote stories for her own amusement for the next thirty years. When a career as a foster care caseworker became too stressful and a career with a floral trade magazine became too comfortable, her thoughts turned to writing an actual book. Success led to success, and she completed a second novel and started her third. The 2009 Marcher Lord Select Premise Contest was her first serious submission and her first writing contest. She survived her father’s death, her mother’s breast cancer, and the quest for publication. Book Three provides her greatest challenge so far.

She joined the knighthood for the scholarship program… A thwarted assassination attempt drags Caissa Ocren into a secret war between elemental spirits and dragon worshippers. More accustomed to solving puzzles than wielding swords, she undergoes a crash course in survival from a mercenary minstrel, a shape-shifting druid, and a legendary spirit warrior. An ancient book may hold the answers she seeks, but understanding requires the memories of a wizard. With time against her, Caissa faces the hardest lesson of all – how to serve when the cost is her life.
