The collected short stories include mysterious legends of lost treasures, mystical tales of mountain fairies, superhuman powers, century-old witches, blood feuds, and more written by a twelfth-generation Albanian. The lands described in the stories are still visible today, and locals share a sense of wonder and respect the mysteries that hide beneath.

Ember in Time Series

Book One

Shiny ember rocks are fuel for time; the dull rocks are a fool’s dime.   

An old nursery rhyme, or so they think.


Itra and Danae stumble across an ancient secret kept hidden behind a reflection in time near their Albanian home. A faded memory and cryptic messages have propelled them to risk an encounter with foes from Greek mythology, altering their perception of Albanian folklore and reality. Itra and Danae grapple with events set in motion centuries ago and must choose to protect and serve or risk having the secret exposed.


Will love, loyalty, and lineage be enough to hold them together, or will they lose their way in a universe they are only beginning to understand?
