Welcome to the authentic home of The Zartia Series online, intended for young adult readers. It is currently unpublished, but I hope to discover an agent someday who will represent my writing as passionately as I do. Have a look around and sign the guestbook before you go if you feel like it.
Did you know? 55% of all Young Adult literature is purchased by readers over the age of 18. So no matter your age, read YA!
For old fans and new, this site is meant to serve as the central hub for all things Zartian.

The structure of the Zartia Series, curtesy of my dry erase board skills:
"Evan had mentioned the possibility that there was a teenage girl who could change the course of history. It was a widespread rumor mainly, and although he didn’t pay much mind to things of that nature, he wondered: Could this be the girl? The one who supposedly had the island’s – and everyone else’s – fate in her hands?"
-Damien, Point of No Return (PoNR), Chapter 12

They aren't all written yet, and certainly subject to revision as time goes on, but this is how things stand currently - for your easy reference.
