This is the sixth novella in the Science Officer series, and continues the “War of the Pirate Clans” mini-series. Be sure to read the continued adventures in “The Hammerfield Gambit.”

Jacob’s wife died in childbirth.

She shouldn’t have.

But magic exists only in the land of the Six Kingdoms. Not on the mainland where Jacobs lives. No healer could save his wife.

What can Jacob, a simple boot maker, do to address such inequality? Or Zara, a girl raised in the streets? Or Brother Isadore, the priest behind a grand plan to change everything?

Lush detail, wildly-creative magic, and a page-turning ending, make this dark, epic fantasy a tale for all ages, with something for every fantasy reader.

New novel by Leah Cutter, now available!

Christine works hard every night to rebuild the fairy bridge to Trollsville and the other worlds–the one she destroyed in order to claim her magical power.

But the rocks fight her. Does the bridge not want to be repaired? Or did Christine take the wrong advice (from humans, of course) about how it should go together?

Can she figure out the proper way to reassemble the bridge? Who can she trust?

And what will she do once she finally finishes her duty and crosses over?

“The Fairy Bridge Troll”–the final novel in the Seattle Trolls trilogy–continues the coming-of-age journey of Christine, a changeling, as she takes control of her Destiny, and in the end, her life.

“Transformations” introduces the Huli Transport office in San Francisco, expanding the universe and this fascinating alternate world.

Alternative Truths

Alternative Truths is a look at the post-election America that is, or will be, or could be. We attach no manacles to the word truth to bind it to our visions. Instead we free it to find its own way through the minds of the two dozen writers who have shared their vision of the future in either sensitively written allegorical tales such as Relics by Louise Marley, a woman who grew up bucking hay in Montana and moved on to a talented musical performer and successful novelist; or the raw humor of Adam Troy-Castro in his Q & A, which takes on the verbal veracity of Donald J. Trump.

Jim Wright (of Stonekettle Station) imagines Trump giving the Gettysburg Address. Blaze Ward, Daniel Kimmel, Janka Hobbs and I explore dystopias. Marleen Barr and Adam Troy-Castro envision humorous, kinky, and scatological endings. What can I say? It rocks.

Available at Amazon.

The Dwarven Wars

New novel by Leah Cutter!

The Old One will not rest until he destroys the Greater Oregon Fairy Kingdom. Warrior, servant, and royal alike face death.

Old world dwarves threaten as well, plotting a genocidal invasion to steal all the magic in the new land.

Nora’s revenge against the Old One will not be stayed, even as her twin brother, Dale, makes peace with the ancient being.

Double-crosses and twisted plans abound in the last book of the Clockwork Fairy Kingdom trilogy, The Dwarven Wars. A fast-paced New Adult fantasy story that always leaves you guessing!

Available at your favorite retailers!

Be sure to read the first two books in the trilogy, The Clockwork Fairy Kingdom and The Maker, the Teacher, and the Monster.

The Immortals’ War

cutter_theimmortalswar_600x900Novel by Leah Cutter, now available!

Tong Yi lives in Taiwan and works as a messenger for Huli Transport—a company that specializes in delivering messages and packages for non–humans. He values his oath to the company and makes heroic efforts to ensure the messages entrusted to him arrive safely and on time.

However, between the awesome motorcycle he rides who insists of “dancing” with him by fishtailing and trying to dump him every chance she gets, and the brewing war between the non–humans, “…or die trying” seems more likely with every message he delivers.

And then his brother turns up as a combatant, and possibly his enemy…

If you enjoy Chinese myths and legends woven into a modern story, you’ll love “The Immortals’ War.”

 The Island Sampler


Like many writers, Leah Cutter writes all over the map.

She has figured out a way to group her stories together, by time (Past/Present/Future) as well as by energy level (Languid/Exciting/Pulse Pounder).

Then she mapped out all of her novels, and discovered she had five “islands”.

It was time for a treasure map!

Come and taste the flavor of each of Leah Cutter’s very different islands. You may only find one island that delights you, or perhaps you’ll love them all…
