Freewill Book One in the Freewill Trilogy 

 Ellie has discovered an ancient world that exists within, and alongside, our own. To survive the mysterious and dangerous, she has to learn what she has become since her death, where her strength really resides, and how to love and be loved. Unbeknownst to her, destiny's stop watch is counting down, secret organizations are watching her every move, and her family's past may destroy her future. 

"The rollercoaster ups and downs of emotions Ellie, Christopher, and the secondary characters go through is easily comprehensible, and more than one tear will be brought to readers’ eyes. Christopher certainly is in line for becoming one of the higher pantheon of young male protagonists." ~ Mallory Anne-Marie Forbes, Mallory Heart Reviews 


Consequences Book Two in the Freewill Trilogy 

As a result of finding her soul mate (Christopher), Ellie has broken her curse, and awakened from her death to find that she has become something mystical, an ethereal Other. A being, whose story has yet to end, where who one is before their death, leads to what they become after … kindness or violence follows in their wake. The Others are ancient creatures, who can help humanity, or cause our destruction … and Ellie has found that monsters are waiting in the mist.  

 "Reading ‘Consequences’ is like catching up with old friends (alive and dead, death being relative), and meeting with new ones. ‘Consequences’ is a tale written with love. But remember: Elyse Draper is a twisted writer, who will leave you hanging to the cliff by your fingertips…Again…" ~ W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh, The Gothic Creatives Association, and The Bermondsey Square Writers.


 Vindication Book Three in the Freewill Trilogy

Mysterious murders, strange secret societies, and betrayal surrounds Christopher. Ellie finds out, if she can survive the treachery of giving your heart to another. Together, they must discover how to experience strength, forgiveness, and true love -- only by letting go of each other. Cruel and unfair, they may believe that their world is ruthless; but only by leaving behind their troubles will they ultimately overcome the horrors that await them.

"‘Vindication’, the third installment in the Freewill trilogy is built like a ticking bomb. The explosion is an amazing showdown in the tunnels running under Paris, and its aftermath will bring tears, joy, pain and beauty. And when you think it is over, it isn’t over yet." ~ W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh, The Gothic Creatives Association, and The Bermondsey Square Writers.
