What happens when politics, passion, and piety collide? The resulting global cataclysm obliterates a mighty nation and nearly destroys the world.

Welcome to the website of the Green Stone of Healing® speculative epic. This saga is a unique blend of action-adventure, alternate history, palace intrigue, the paranormal, and undying romance.

This serialized fiction chronicles how state backing for an exclusionary religion leads to worldwide destruction that sweeps away all traces of a powerful island country called Azgard.

Four generations of strong-willed women inherit a mysterious green gem revealed to mend broken bones and broken hearts, protect against human and natural assaults, and render its wearers undetectable.

These courageous protagonists use their jewel to offer a loving, inclusive alternative to theocrats who persecute those who do not look like them or share their beliefs.

Readers who become fond of these characters will be delighted that they reincarnate on their spiritual sojourns, affirming that not even death can divide lovers and loved ones (or enemies).
