Works in Progress

I write romantic fantasy with lyrical description and strong characters. I love exploring the acceptance of self and the concept of choice, in a variety of immersive worlds and time periods.

Read on to find out more about my current projects – the ones I am seeking representation for, the ones I’m drafting, the ones I’ve planned, and the ones that I’ve shelved (for now!).

Dust Bound

Pitch:

Happily ever afters don’t exist in Adelia’s broken world covered in poisonous faerie Dust—especially not after the Fae steal a boy. Rescuing him risks more than Adelia’s life; it risks exposing her biggest secret to the man she loves. She’s the thing he hates most: one of the Fae.

Currently seeking publication for the finished manuscript

Lady of the Ravens

Pitch:

Killing a king was supposed to keep her safe. Now the new king has killed her coven, hunts her child, and seeks to steal her power. She never should have married him.
Lady Macbeth X Game of Thrones

Currently seeking representation for the finished manuscript

Witch of Mayfair

Pitch:

Fantastic Beasts X Miss Fisher’s Mysteries.

All Dinah wanted was a new life in London where no-one would ask why a witch was using a mage’s wand. But when her aunts are blamed for the death stalking her village back home, she gives up the cocktails & cha-cha to find the real killer before the handsome Inspector or her brooding childhood friend throw her aunts in jail and leave the magical killer on the loose.

Currently drafting

Blood Cursed Rose

Pitch:

A contemporary gender swapped vampire Beauty and the Beast, with character interactions reminiscent of Yennefer and Geralt in THE WITCHER, and the aesthetic of THE ORIGINALS

You can read a Christmas short story set in this world here.

Currently drafting

Ice Witch, Fire Mage

Pitch:

A plot bunny at the moment but it’s a gender swapped Snow Queen inspired fantasy in a secondary world.

Currently plotting

Sequels:

Flight of Hope – This picks up a year after the events in Dust Bound. Adelia is called on to honour her promise to an old friend, a promise that takes her into Aelfhame and a civil war amongst the Fae. (partially written)

Siren’s Call 2 – unwritten but outlined. The sequel will reunite our heroes and bring the conflict between mer and humans to the surface.

Currently plotting

Other Projects

Redemption – an epic fantasy about forgiveness and war. In need of rewriting.

Light Breaks – a contemporary fantasy about a single mother trying to find her way after a disastrous marriage. When long latent magic awakens in her, she fears she is going mad like her great aunt. A hunter from the Fae court, Damon, is sent to deal with her but finds himself drawn to protect her instead. Against her will, Phoebe finds herself drawn into a battle between different Fae factions.


Currently shelved

Fan Fiction

Return of Merlin. I have one completed fan fiction that I wrote a few years ago for my boys, based on the BBC Merlin series. My oldest son was heartbroken that Arthur died at the end so I wrote a story where Arthur returns in 2016.
