Shameless plug here: My latest novel, Starlight: Book 1 of the Dark Elf War, is now for sale on Amazon.

A secret power. The revival of magic. An ancient evil stirs.

Twenty-year-old university dropout Cassie Rogan has returned to her small British Columbia home. Tortured by an accident that killed her parents, she drifts, failing life at every turn. When an impossibly localized lightning storm hits the surrounding forest, Cassie discovers her supernatural side.

After centuries of atrophy, the forces of magic are flowing back into our world, and Cassie can wield arcane powers. Her life seems destined to turn around, until the downside of magic brings everything to a screeching halt. Horrifying mythical beasts now prowl the northern wilderness—including the Basilisk—an enormous eight-legged lizard that can turn its prey to stone.

Recruited by a secretive agency, Cassie must quickly master her powers to protect mankind. As she develops her skills, a dark power secretly watches from the shadows. The Fae Seelie (a.k.a. the Dark Elves)—humanity's ancient enemy—have returned to settle the score.
Starlight is the first book in the Dark Elf War series, an epic urban fantasy and coming of age series that features fast-paced action, mysterious creatures, careful world-building, and breathless pacing. Author William Stacey is a 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-Finalist.

Shameless self publicity plug here.

Today and tomorrow only, Dark Fantasy Short FAIRY TALE, is free on Amazon.


On her seventh birthday, Cassie finds a wounded fairy in her backyard. The brave little girl intends to help the magical creature no matter the cost.

Finn, one of the forest people, is being hunted by the Changeling, a monstrous beast that will stop at nothing to consume her.

Together, Cassie and Finn will journey into the forest at night seeking the safety of Finn's people.

But the Changeling is still out there, and it doesn't care who it has to kill to get at the fairy.

In nature, anything can be hunted.

A short story from the author of Black Monastery, voted 'Outstanding in Genre' by Red Adept Select.
