Tayla Jean Grossberg


Mermaid. Heroine. Actress. Assassin. Princess. Dragon rider.

Tayla Jean Grossberg was all of these things as a child—she had overactive imagination. She grew up on a game ranch in South Africa, among animals such as leopards, buffalo, zebras, and giraffes.

She expanded her horizons by traveling to America and Europe. Her experiences, the people she meets, the places she visits, and the animals she loves inspire her to write novels. Now Tayla spends her time reading, writing, and continuing her crazy adventures.

The only thing she can’t do is reach the top shelf.

She’d love to hear from you!

ISBN-13: 978-1-949428-06-3 (Kindle)

There is Magic in the kingdom. And it is forbidden. There are shifters in the kingdom. And they too are forbidden. They are hunted, and dying.

In a sleepy village, a girl awakens on her sixteenth birthday without any knowledge of who she is, where she is, or why she is. She knows only that she is stronger and faster than most. She is fierce and she is fearless. She is unlike anyone else in the kingdom.

Who is Caitlin Wilde?

She is determined to know. She goes on a quest for answers, joined by a young man-wolf hiding a shadowed past and a fabled hunter-destroyer of Magic who has a gentle heart.

What they seek will change their lives and the lives of the people in the Silver Kingdom forever.




Secret of the Castle (The Silver Kingdom, Book 2)

ISBN-13: TBD (Paperback)

ISBN-13: TBD (Kindle)

Caitlin and Rafe dream of a fairy-tale life together. But Sky Castle is no place for happy-ever-afters.


For Caitlin is being stalked by the relentless assassin Black Blade, and Rafe’s secret puts him at risk of death at the hands of the hunter Dylan and his vengeance-seeking father and aunt. And while Caitlin’s parents work to rebuild their ravaged lives, her little sister Maggie harbors hopes of becoming a great lady of the royal court.


But all is not as it seems at the seat of the Silver Kingdom.


There are monsters in the castle. There are things that dwell in the dark: something crawling around in the deep, dank tunnels, crazed and savage; red-cloaked beings, unfeeling, unthinking, and unnatural, some with blades for fingers; a creature with burning eyes, iron hooves, too many teeth, and an insatiable hunger. And then there are the killers who sit on the throne.


Deep in the bowels of Sky Castle lies the key to Caitlin’s tortured past—and the horrible revelation that she just might be the most terrifying monster of them all.
