Far into the future, the Earth is ruled by the ShaZha, a hyper-intelligent race of alien beings who are plagued by the violence and volatility of the human race.

Don't Judge a Book By Its Magic(Link)

Novel/Self-published
October 2012

I’m a normal girl. I am. I love shoes, fragranced body care, and hair products. I love all the chick flicks that have come out in the theaters in the last 2 years (and a lot of the old ones) and I obsess about my wardrobe. I respond positively to most of the marketing directed at females in my age group.

My name is Colleen Underhill, and the only abnormal thing about me is that I just discovered I am, or I transformed into, a magician; not the disappearing bunny kind, but the power-shooting-out-of-your-hands kind of magician.

My problem now is that I do NOT believe in magic. Well, I believe in it. I have seen it shoot out of my own hands, but I oppose it in a moral sense; no hexes, no spells, no incantations, no potions, no amulets, no tomes, no casting circles, no eye of newt, none of that. I have to be very clear because people pressure me about it. Whatever they say about “how it’s done,” this is a morality issue for me and I will not cave in to their pressure.

But what do I do now?

Wilding(Link)

Delcine lives on the Earth in a society that is is ruled by the ShaZha, a hyper-intelligent race of alien beings who rule the planet under the guise of rehabilitating humanity. Not surprisingly, some humans under ShaZha rule are not satisfied with their pretense.
Delcine, a Prodigy, can not submit and become an obedient human. Bitter against her callous treatment by the masters, she lives in torment. Unfortunately, her rebellion provides no relief and her preoccupied captors ignore her due to her small size and innocent appearance.
One day she hears the rumors of a human named Zarah who knows of the world outside the Prodigy community, and even of a society living free of the ShaZha. This discovery spurs Delcine to form a daring plan to go stray. Will she escape from her stifling existence? Will the free world give her everything she hoped for?
