Tales from the Backcountry: An Anthology

I’m excited to announce that my first published short story is out in this new anthology along with many other talented writers. 

The king is dead and Talmarain has fallen, but the Dravens (and others) have tales to tell yet. In this anthology, M.L. Little and seven community authors present the following stories:

  • A journey into the world of the Nullians, the beloved creatures from The Book of Secrets
  • A look at what came next for the Dravens once the dust of war settled
  • The mysterious Rangers of the deepest wilderness—with a twist
  • The full version of The Thimble in the Forest, a classic fairy tale
  • A cautionary fable from ancient Talmarain
  • Who wielded the stone before Gabriel? Discover part of the answer in a mystery from an emerging author
  • Chaos erupts when two beloved characters from different worlds collide
  • A novella of the lesser-known, tragic history of The Highlands

Mystery, adventure, danger, and hope abound when you return to the golden shores of the Seventh Realm.

Coming Soon!



Anyone who thought homeschooling a bright child would make it easy, doesn’t understand Sammie. When I named my daughter Samantha Patience, I never considered that the next nine years she would be teaching me how little patience I actually possessed.

Michelle is an exhausted homeschool mom trying to hold the home together during her husband’s deployment. Now her 5-year-old son JJ is running a fever and 9-year-old Sammie can’t keep her head out of the clouds long enough to complete three math problems. Michelle wants to impress upon her daughter the importance of hard work, and save Sammie from the disappointment of unfulfilled dreams—like the ones in Michelle’s journals that she neatly tucked away in her closet.

But Sammie found her mom’s old journals—the drafts of a fantasy series Michelle long ago abandoned—and began adding to them with her own youthful imagination. Shortly after Michelle chides Sammie for living in a daydream, they are transported into Michelle’s old novel. To save her children, Michelle must partner with her own main character, face the Shadow Witch, and save the fantasy world Michelle had discarded along with her dreams.


Hidden Knight:
A Novel of a Bear

Two brothers’ choices have the potential to bring unity to a war-torn world… or divide it further.

Beau is a shy eighteen-year-old using his bear-like strength to work his first job as a furniture mover. Orphaned and raised in foster care with his older brother Kelem, Beau has no idea he’s from a world of medieval bearfolk, much less the young Berardian Knight, ruler of his people. Kelem lied to keep them together, and Beau thinks they’re biological brothers.

Kelem is a rookie cop, but he was born to be the Enoshite King. When a portal is opened, Kelem whisks them back to Adalbern. He’s intent on reclaiming his throne, even though in revealing the truth, he might lose Beau—Kelem may be human but he has come to consider Beau his brother. Beau, however, wants only to return to Earth and escape the weight of his culture’s expectations. Unfortunately, Beau has reverted to his true form: a burly black bear.

The alliance between humans and bearfolk is crumbling. Ludolf, a once trusted captain, leads a rebellion of bearfolk. He wants Kelem dead and humans eradicated. But a greater threat is rising. The ancient lord of the serpents is building an army, enacting a plan to bring all of Adalbern under his dominion.

Only if Beau takes leadership of his people can Kelem hope to save the alliance. And if Beau is going to protect Kelem, Beau must discover his true self and take his place beside his brother as the Knight of Adalbern.
