R J Metcalf

During the day, RJ is a stay at home mom of two active little boys. When she has ‘free time’, she enjoys reading, writing, baking and sewing.

After many years of creative writing classes, writing fanfiction drabbles and daydreaming, it was high time to start writing her husband Mike’s story. She dove into the world of Terrene and hasn’t looked back–except for when she runs out of dark chocolate.

Any free time not spent in Terrene is typically expended on hosting dinner and game nights, running amok with the two little monkeys or watching nerdy movies with Mike.

Traitor’s Crown

Traitor’s Crown

The barrier has fallen.

Panic looms over the Leaders’ Summit. With war on their doorstep, Jade must decide what she is willing to do to help unite the southern kingdoms, even if it means marrying for duty rather than love. But the sudden re-emergence of her father, Doldra’s lost Prince Brandon, throws all of her plans to the wind. His desire to restore their relationship could prove her only hope out of an unwanted marriage or destroy the fragile dream of a united southern coalition.

And in the dark depths of the Hollows, Raine must find allies for herself if she’s to survive the horrors of the mines. Not everyone is as they seem, and some friendships come with a price that is far too costly.

Unaware that their enemies have placed their sights on the Hollows, Ben and Geist take on a covert mission with one goal in mind: Find Raine. Protect her. But when complications arise, they learn that things are far worse than anticipated.

With the southern countries crumbling before the threat of invasion, they must find the strength to stand firm—before the north enslaves them all.

Renegade Skyfarer

Renegade Skyfarer

The airship crew saved Ben’s life from a dragon, of all things.

When Ben wakes up, he has no memory of his family, his home, or how he got to this strange world. All he knows is what his new crew members tell him: the magical Barrier that protects their land is weakening. Unless they find the artifact that can repair it, all of Terrene will be destroyed and enslaved by the enemies beyond.

But when Ben suspects that danger may lurk closer than dragons or sky pirates, he has to decide: stay and fight with the airship crew, or focus on regaining his lost memory? If he leaves, he risks losing his newfound friends–but if he stays, he might never return home.

Welcome to Terrene–where dragons exist, the past haunts, and magic is no myth.

Welcome aboard the Sapphire.
