The Path of the Stone
What if a Stone that knows good and punishes evil ends up in the wrong hands?

In Camden Town, London, Eva leaves a party with a stolen jacket, followed by her ex-boyfriend, Darryn. She has no idea what dangerous item is hidden in her pocket.
When her hand closes around it and its heat sears her skin, the ground splits open, whisking her and Darryn away into an underground time tunnel. Darryn’s brother Daniel, who is the only witness to the strange event, retrieves the Stone, unwittingly unleashing its owner, Aeron.
Aeron, a creature of darkness, weakened by the loss of the Stone, is set on killing Daniel and recovering his lost power, but Calliope, a wayward harpy, puts a stop to his plan, snatching Daniel out of his grasp.

While Eva and Darryn land in the year 1708, in a strange village that is run by Zora, an evil witch, Daniel and Calliope remain in the 21st Century, doing their utmost to outrun Aeron and his minions.
Two parallel stories, two different worlds, even two different centuries, both with a common purpose: find the Stone before Aeron does. If Aeron gets his hands on the Stone, all will be lost and betrayal lurks around every corner.
You’ll never look at harpies the same way again!

Azure first appears in the Amazon Bestselling title The Path of the Stone as a major side character, but her tale begins long before that, in Macedonia, in 341 BC, during her mortal days.

Bhava, Azure’s best friend, is marked to die. The scaffold is being prepared and the town’s female healers are lined up for execution. Soon, the authorities will be coming for Bhava, because she has healing powers and is therefore feared as a witch.
Unwilling to let this happen, Azure orchestrates a daring escape and saves Bhava’s life. Forced to leave town, they embark on a daring journey to Gaul where Bhava’s mother lives. The trip is not without its dangers, and as obstacles and attacks pile up, Azure quickly discovers that Bhava’s skills extend far beyond healing.
When they reach Gaul, the truth about Bhava is finally revealed.
Azure, having experienced Bhava’s unpleasant change, now witnesses her joining forces with her birth mother, Boudicca, a dark witch. Bhava’s final betrayal breaks their bond, forcing Azure to leave her forever, not knowing that her decision sets her on her own journey… which is only just beginning.
A village of harpies – Boudicca’s mortal enemies – awaits Azure, making her regret ever having saved Bhava’s life. Soon, all hell breaks loose, and Azure will have to go to extraordinary lengths to survive, traveling over faraway lands and even time.
This historic novel begins with Aurélie telling her memories of the French Revolution, her participation in the storming of the Bastille, witnessing the September Massacres and her father’s arrest, and the trial of Marie Antoinette.

When Aurélie leaves the murdering mob in the September Massacres, she meets Lucan, a Roman vampire, who saves her from certain death and introduces her to the world of vampires. Seduced by vampirism, she embarks on the road of immortality, her journey filled with unsuspected turns, a mortal man that stirs her passion, surprising allies, and Giada, a Renaissance vampire who shares a dark history with Lucan and who is set on destroying Aurélie.

The stunning story Aurélie – Survival is a provocative historical drama that ponders if a vampire can find true love. Or has Aurélie bitten off more than she can chew?
From the catacombs of Rome to the beautiful city of Paris, and the abundant jungle by Veracruz and lush forests of Cuernavaca, to the bustling streets of London… This second installment of Aurélie’s memoirs takes us on a breathtaking journey across the globe to fulfill Penelope´s mission: destroy Giada.

After meeting Lucan on her path, an unexpected ally from his past provides Aurélie with some welcome help on her quest. Seraphin has survived and transformed into an immortal, unique in his kind: carrying friend and foe’s blood inside his undying body. With both men on her side Aurélie finds herself engulfed in a twisted love triangle, one that only becomes more complex when they are faced by their most feared adversaries: the werewolves.

As the story unfolds, Aurélie finds her plans could be compromised when she learns that there is more to Giada than meets the eye, changing the face of the mortal and immortal world forever. This quest for revenge soon becomes a trail of eye-opening discoveries about those she thought she could trust and those she thought were her enemies.
After centuries of hatred, vampires and werewolves have finally achieved peace. Vampire Aurélie has settled down in her house in Paris, sharing her turf with Seraphin, a unique creature who carries both vampire and werewolf blood.
The sudden news of an assault on Penelope´s lair threatens this very peace. If Penelope, fount of the vampires, is killed, the vampire blood line will be destroyed.
All suspicions point to Akira, fount of the werewolves. With the help of Lucan – her maker – and Seraphin, Aurélie embarks on a journey to find the culprit behind the attack. Soon, she discovers that this quest is more than she bargained for and that a war threatens. Aurélie must find Akira to stop the devastating events, but it turns out to be more difficult than she expected, finding betrayal with someone she trusted and a reluctant ally among her enemies.
Aurélie realizes that – to preserve her own existence – she is fighting for a creature she loathes, and that Akira, the one she has always admired, may indeed be her enemy. With only herself to trust, how can she stop this war that menaces the very existence of vampires, and perhaps even werewolves
Lucan Book 1 - Christine Duts
Reclusive Lucan now tells it all. There are no more secrets; and his past is no longer shrouded in mystery.

Lucan´s story takes us to ancient Rome and introduces us to Commodus, the emperor of Rome. On the run from Commodus´s wrath, circumstances separate him from his family and he is caught by Penelope, fount of the vampires, who turns him into an immortal. Lucan’s only concern is his family, but he understands that he has to leave them to keep them safe from the dangers of immortality.

His journey takes him to Morgan, the banshee, who lives among the mysterious Forest People, and to his first encounter with a werewolf. Lucan takes the reader on a voyage through the centuries, witnessing heroic battles in the East and the intrigues of monarchies in the West.

The Renaissance brings Lucan some temporary peace and re-introduces Giada, a dangerous Renaissance vampire. He finds friendship with the charismatic Orion who unwittingly brings him closer to the true fount of blood drinkers and lycans (vampires and werewolves).

It is a tale interwoven in human history, a tale of love and persistence, hardship and hope, family and allies, and a desperate attempt to cling to the last remnants of humanity in a world of monsters, mortal or immortal.
Lucan Book 2 - Christine Duts

A fantasy fairytale world explodes into full-blown war – with an underlying vegan message

In 2285 it would be exactly two hundred years since the Mountain and the Valley Kingdoms had been created. It had taken time and many errors, even when everyone did their best to avoid the mistakes of the past that had led to destruction of life. The human world was destroyed. Technology was gone, electricity and running water were no more, whole cities had been obliterated, and food supply was scarce.

The survivors awoke to a new world where humans once more were weak and defenseless, stripped of their protective towns and comforts, tools and weapons, machinery and cars. The food chain was no longer what humans had created and believed, but it reverted to how it had been before they took over the world. All they had left now was their common sense and the will to survive in this post-apocalyptic world.

They knew their place. They knew that they could not repeat past mistakes. Never again.


Two kingdoms, opposed in philosophy and action The Mountain Kingdom is a place of peace and respect for all sentient beings. The Valley Kingdom clings to the old destructive ways. Special talents such as animal speech, top speed, and other superhuman attributes are honed and revered in the Mountains, but non-existent in the Valley.

Luna, a young noblewoman with the talent of animal speech, and Prince Storm of the Mountain are betrothed, and nothing seems to stand in the way of their arranged marriage. Storm is a good man and Luna needs an escape from her abusive home.

Bluntax, the Valley king, has long desired everything the Mountain Kingdom possesses, and the upcoming royal wedding between Luna and Storm might be just what he needs to provoke the Mountain Kingdom into a battle they cannot win. His son, Thorn, is his strongest asset and the only man who can help him succeed.

The Mountain Kingdom is unprepared for the threats from the Valley, but when Thorn meets Luna, events are set in motion, forcing them both to make decisions that could change their fates forever.

While human and animal refugees seek shelter in the Mountains to flee the terrors of the Valley, King Bluntax prepares for war. Thorn finds his destiny intrinsically linked to Luna and he must decide. Will he betray her and help his father achieve victory or will he forsake his family and stand by the woman who is also engaged to his rival?
Amazon Reviewer: “The author knows well what the reality of dogs in Mexico (and unfortunately of many other countries in the world) is like. Well written. It will touch your heart. A must read.”

Born in a quiet neighbourhood in Mexico, Rusty is the only female in a litter of five puppies. Unwanted, Rusty finds herself and her fatally-ill brother dumped at a garbage site. Struggling to survive at only six weeks old, Rusty finds herself befriending two dogs, Ayla and Lucky. Teaming up, they leave the garbage dump, trying desperately to find food, water and solace. Fearing she’ll have to face the dangers and terrors of a world without an owner, Rusty luckily finds refuge with Lety, a woman who adopts Rusty in her time of need. With her friends disappearing, and a happy ending seemingly always out of reach, can Rusty overcome her tough start and find a place where she belongs?
Tips to Get Through Burnout

In 2016 I was diagnosed with burnout, but it could have started earlier than that. Going through burnout feels like trudging through an endless dark tunnel where the light is nowhere in sight. It is something I wouldn’t wish upon anyone, and the day I finally healed – in 2018 – was one of the happiest days of my life.

Burnout is not only exclusive to the workplace, but also to other factors, such as abuse at home, frustrating and long procedures one has to go through at bureaucratic institutions, schools, universities, you name it. Burnout is a modern-day disease that affects many and, somehow, it still has so little understanding.

When I experienced burnout there wasn’t much help available, and after I finally crept out of that tunnel back into the light I decided that I wanted to help people who are going through burnout, to give the help I would have loved to have when it happened to me.
So, this book is not about me, but for you, to help you. With what I’ve learned during my road to recovery, I would like to guide you through this dark tunnel or hold up a torch to show the way.

"Now both siblings must confront monsters and work with unlikely allies as they seek to protect the stone from Aeron in two different time periods. This was a really fun adventure filled with all the creatures and lore you could want from a mythological epic! The time travel and double plot aspects of the story were great, and the characters were fun and meaningful! Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I love Percy Jackson, and this is a book that definitely captured a lot of that feel. If you love mythology, definitely come travel through time with The Path of the Stone!" (Amazon reviewer)
