Books by R. J. Eliason
Bear Naked Series
Amanda Burnson is a typical teen with all the typical problems: excess weight, struggles with body odor, random people trying to kill her . . . oh, and her boyfriend just might be a werewolf.
At seventeen, Amanda, who has been raised by her neo-pagan uncle, has more friends at the local Renaissance faire than at her high school. Most of her summers are spent at faires, festivals, and Aunt Maggie’s farm.
There is something new going on in the heart of America, in the small Iowa town that Amanda calls home. The whole town is changing—a tough way to begin a school year. New kids alongside the old; new attitudes colliding with the usual annoying old ones; menacing new faces alongside comforting ones. . . things will never be the same once this brew is boiled.

Bear Naked 2: Wolf Camp
Wolf Camp is not your typical arts-and-crafts summer camp. It’s a training ground for future
werewolves, where their mental and physical limits are constantly tested and honed.
There are many hurdles to overcome: Amanda, an adolescent werebear, can’t control her
transformations yet; and Connor and his pack are the camp misfits. Then they discover a new
threat from the Sons of Garm, this time from within the Leidulf tribe.
Will Amanda and her werewolf friends be able to navigate these new waters? Maybe with a
little help from a couple of old friends?
Bear Naked 3: The Hunted
This is the third book in the Bear Naked series. It follows the lives of Amanda Burnson, a young bear shifter, her werewolf boyfriend and his pack, and of course, their were-otter friends.
Amanda’s Uncle Darren has gone missing while on a camping trip to Idaho. Connor’s Uncle Mitch is found unconscious, in a coma. The pack’s enemy, the Sons of Garm, seem like obvious suspects, but Idaho is home territory for the Skinwalkers, Native American cousins to the werewolves.
The situation is more complicated than anything these young adults have yet witnessed. Uncle Darren is feral, trapped in bear form. The Skinwalkers are hostile, unwilling to help. The mountains themselves thwart them. Can the pack navigate the shifting alliances and find Uncle Darren in time?
Children of a New Earth
For nearly thirty years, since the collapse of society, Freedom Ranch has been self sufficient, hidden deep in the Rocky Mountains. Amy Beland has grown up hating the small valley settlement and the survivalist that run it. Now it will be up to her to save them all.
Journeying out of the mountains and into what is left of civilization, they discover that much of what they’ve been taught about the collapse is wrong. They don’t find the enemy they expect on the plains beneath their home, which is good because Amy suspects they may have brought a couple with them.
The Mage Chronicles
The Gilded Empire: A magical empire so ancient it’s name has been forgotten to the mist of time. Its citizens believe they are in their golden age, but already the rot is showing underneath the gold veneer.
The Mage Chronicles: A mage level healer, Mary is unprepared when the Council of Mages wants her to intervene in a border dispute in a distant part of the empire. What does she know of nobility or war? Not one to back down, she must confront the harsh realities of life outside the central core, a legion of unstoppable warriors and the ghosts of her own past.
The Galactic Consortium
The Galactic Consortium is a serialized science fiction story about first contact with an alien culture, one that isn’t entirely alien.
The girl in the Tank
Less than five months ago, lights appeared in the sky. Days later the ships started to arrive. They call themselves the Consortium. They are human, or at least Simian, descending from the same genetic line as humans. They terraformed this planet centuries ago, sent settlers a mere forty thousand years ago. Now they are back, ready to begin the exploration of this galaxy.
For Cheyenne Walker, Chief Petty Officer aboard the Cambridge, a USS destroyer, the arrival of the Consortium is just one more obstacle to finishing her final tour of duty and getting home to her kids. The political upheaval forces the US into an uneasy alliance with the Consortium against China, and puts the Cambridge on the edge of a nuclear blast.
Cheyenne wakes to find herself aboard the Corelean, a Consortium Medical Evacuation ship. Floating in a medi-tank, she wonders if they really can’t repair the wreck of her body, whether these newcomers are friends or foes and most importantly, will she ever make it back to children?
