When mortals turn their backs on gods, those gods will return with a vengeance.


Gavyn’s no hero. In fact, after a group of psychos claiming to be Sumerian gods resurface in a destructive display of power and demand the surrender of the world’s heroes, Gavyn only thinks, “Wow. Sucks to be them.” So when an old hag, who’s quite likely an ancient witch, and a young, gorgeous woman, for whom he’d at least pretend to be a hero, show up at his door insisting he’s one of the heroes the Sumerians are after, he’s skeptical…and more than a little annoyed.


But they won’t take no for an answer, and Gavyn finds himself being transported halfway across the world to an actual, honest-to-some-god training camp for men and women who embrace their destinies to safeguard Earth. And while he had every intention of continuing his stubborn refusal to become the hero the Norse gods need him to be, his own ancestor has different ideas. The dreams that connect him to a past no one can remember hint at an old deception, and the Sumerians aren’t the only enemy the Norse will have to face.


In the first book of the Heroes of Asgard series, Gavyn must accept who—and what—he is, because the forgotten gods of ancient religions have returned. And they’ll no longer be ignored.





When nothing is left, what will you treasure most?

In a world completely destroyed by adults, eleven-year-old Nic believes he is the only thing still alive after four years of isolation—the only thing except for the Scavengers.

When he meets Celia, another child in an empty world, they offer one another hope and the promise of an end to the kind of fear and loneliness that only a child abandoned on a dead and forsaken planet could understand.

But Nic's universe, for years centered around Celia, will be tested, and he’ll discover just how far he’s willing to go to protect them both.

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo



Twenty years after the arrival of the thieves of peace, the surviving invaders are again threatening the lives of everyone on Cambria. But this time, it’s Zoe and Peyton’s daughter who will lead the expedition to save everyone again.

Jenna has heard “like mother like daughter” her entire life. She’s always had to walk in her mother’s shadow, and she’s grown tired of everyone expecting her to be Zoe Arren. But when the thieves of peace who’d been left behind on Cambria begin looking for new food sources, Jenna decides to confront them, and she will have to discover if she’s really just like her mother after all.

S.M. Schmitz

S.M. Schmitz has an M.A. in modern European history and is a former world history instructor. Her novels are infused with the same humorous sarcasm that she employed frequently in the classroom. As a native of Louisiana, she sets many of her scenes here, and like Dietrich in Resurrected, she is also convinced Louisiana has been cursed with mosquitoes much like Biblical Egypt with its locusts.
