!! Tropes in her other works:
* CompanionCube: ''Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls'' has an interesting twist -- inanimate objects constantly talk telepathically to the autistic main character, Sarah. And no, she's not imagining it: they sometimes tell her useful things, like the combinations to locks and safes, or the location of hidden items.
* IntrepidReporter: Bill and Chris, in the ''Athanor'' series, are led by an anonymous tipster to investigate a mysterious philanthropist going by "Arthur Pendragon". Once they realize just how big of a secret they've stumbled onto, though, they decide to change careers.
* SpeaksInShoutOuts: In ''Literature/BrotherToDragonsCompanionToOwls'', the main character can only communicate via quotes from literature. It's heavily implied that she is autistic.
* ThoseWilyCoyotes: In the ''Athanor'' series, the shapeshifting Changer took the form of a coyote and had a family. Someone killed most of them save for the Changer and his daughter, a coyote pup, and the Changer returns to civilization to find out who did it.
* TimeAbyss: In the ''Athanor'' duology, Changer was literally one of the first two life forms on the planet, even before there were continents.
