Seattle Slayers

Available now from Sixth Moon Press

Start reading here!

Welcome to the Twilight Veil, where magic has risen and turned the Pacific Northwest into a haven for the supernatural.

I crossed the Twilight Veil to the Drowned City to find a cure for my mom's disease and fulfill my promise to dad. All I had was a backpack and my tiny bit of Breaker magic. I learned that behind the Veil, life is cheap and vampire blood spends the best. Only the Oceanic Pact keeps humans, shifters, and vampires in an uneasy truce.

The Seattle Slayers, an elite cadre of fighters dedicated to protecting the city, is having their Trials for new initiates. My dad was a Slayer--one of the best. I thought his legacy might give me an edge in the Trials, but I was wrong. If anything, it made them harder on me.

But joining the Slayers is my best chance to save my mom. And, maybe, I need to see if I can fill my dad’s shoes.

The only things standing between me and my dreams are all the other elite fighters and magic users who want their spot on the Slayers too. I will battle them all--fae warriors, river demons, and a certain vampire princeling who keeps complicating my life.

Piece of cake.

A thrilling urban fantasy set in the brand new world of the Twilight Veil. Perfect for readers who enjoy slow burn romance and fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!


Ebony Gate 

Coming July 2023 from Tor Books

Pre-order Ebony Gate here!

Julia Vee and Ken Bebelle's Ebony Gate is a female John Wick story with dragon magic set in contemporary San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Emiko Soong belongs to one of the eight premier magical families of the world. But Emiko never needed any magic. Because she is the Blade of the Soong Clan. Or was. Until she’s drenched in blood in the middle of a market in China, surrounded by bodies and the scent of blood and human waste as a lethal perfume.

The Butcher of Beijing now lives a quiet life in San Francisco, importing antiques. But when a shinigami, a god of death itself, calls in a family blood debt, Emiko must recover the Ebony Gate that holds back the hungry ghosts of Yomi. Or forfeit her soul as the anchor.

What's a retired assassin to do but save the City By The Bay from an army of the dead?
