Books of the Wyrd

LIESMITH.
STORMBRINGER.
BAD MEME.
WYRDVERSE.

Sitting at the intersection of the magical and the mundane, the Books of the Wyrd are a queer Australian urban fantasy series about old gods and new tricks.

Liesmith, follows unassuming every-nerd Sigmund Sussman as he struggles through IT tech support and rogue Norse gods alike. The end of the world has come knocking, and Sigmund’s new boyfriend, the suspiciously ultra-hip Lain Laufeyjarson, is at the heart of it. Somehow, this is one problem turning it off and on again won’t seem to fix.

Stormbringer sees Sigmund and Lain return to Asgard to deal with the fallout from Ragnarok. While Odin’s grandchildren fight over who should claim rulership of the realm, Thor’s sons are on a quest to regain their father’s lost and legendary hammer. Em and Wayne, meanwhile, find themselves in Hel, literally, as the dishonored dead set out to march on Asgard, demanding sanctuary. Armies are marching, Loki is back (sort of), and all that stands in the way of total war are three nerds and a whole lotta classic rock.

Wyrdverse is a collection of short stories from the world of the Wyrd, including a series of stories set in the pre-Ragnarøkkr world of Loki and Sigyn.

The Dragon of Rosemont High

Four months ago, the death of his parents sent Elias Drake from New York City to the small town of Rosemont. Living with his workaholic aunt and trying to fit into a new school is no small task, especially not when a string of murders turns out to have potentially supernatural origins.

With the help of his best friend, Zoe Chung, a wannabe witch, it’s up to Eli to unravel and mystery and stop the killer… as well as deal with some serious, monstrous changes of his own.
