A Little About Me

Iā€™m a dreamer, often exploring fantasy worlds and speculative ideas through writing or reading. I’m energetic and enthusiastic, so I have multiple novels in progress from drafting through to querying. I’m also a primary school teacher and traveler, photographing everything which captures my imagination and occasionally writing poetry about it. To learn more, visit my About Page.

My First Novel

My main character Prince Ruarnon in bronze armour. Art Credit: GlintofMischief

Tested at every turn by his war hero father, bookish Prince Ruarnon is determined to prove his worth to begin co-rule on his seventeenth birthday.

Sensitive High King Kyura is determined to preserve his father’s legacy of peace with Ruarnon’s kingdom, but traitors in his court have other plans.

Across the ocean, Aussie teens Linh and Troy seek their way home, oblivious to the collision course they’re on with a monster hoard bound for Kyura’s kingdom.

To secure peace for his continent, Ruarnon will contend with the monsters, seek Linh and Troy’s help and risk being rewarded with his own murder.
