“…I find myself waiting impatiently for the next book to be published to see where Valerie Mechling and Samuel Stubbs take this vivid landscape they have created.”


Meet the Authors

Valerie Mechling is a martial arts instructor and author of The Tales of the Seventh Empire trilogy. Her solo novel "Traitor Defiant" was a quarterfinalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel award in 2009.
