Worlds of Imagination, Adventure, and Romance
AWard Winning author
Since my childhood growing up in New Zealand, I have been an avid storyteller. For years I enjoyed teaching art and special education, while writing as a hobby. After developing an autoimmune disorder, a career change was needed, but happily this led me to become an award winning author.
My books are mostly fantasy/paranormal, with strong romantic elements, and I recently started writing my first lesbian fiction series. As a bisexual woman, with LGBTQ family and friends, I want to represent greater diversity in my work. Ideally my stories convey the truth that love is beautiful, regardless of gender, race, class, or other labels.
Contest placements include: first in the 2016 EPIC Awards-Fantasy Paranormal Romance category, first in the 2015 Paranormal Awards-Romance category, second in the Heart of Excellence Readers’ Choice Awards, and fourth in the International Digital Awards. I have also been a finalist in several published novel contests.
Saba is the daughter of an ambitious desert king. She knows little beyond the gilded cage of palace life, until one night, a notorious woman outlaw steals her away.
Though her journey starts as trial by fire, Saba soon discovers possibilities for joy and freedom beyond anything she has known. Unfortunately, her father is on the war path, aided by a dark sorcerer who seeks to claim Saba as his own.
Can a princess and an outlaw forge a life together?
Will malign magic and violent conquest destroy everything they have gained?
This is my current writing project.
With my recent health issues finally settling down, I'm back to working on this novel. I plan to be done by the end of 2017, at which point I'll send it out to LGBTQ publishers. Check back for further details, or follow me on AMAZON or BOOKBUB to receive notifications of my new releases.
The clan is waking. After centuries of spellbound sleep, dragon-shifters are returning to the mountains. They are few in number, and the outside world has become overrun with humans.
Huroth, the dragon chieftain, recognizes a need for his kind to adapt, by forming alliances and mate-bonds with humans, but his clan is divided. From the first time she meets him, Lady Orwenna is drawn to the magnificent chieftain. The mind link he forms with her is both fascinating and frightening, as is the powerful attraction she feels for him. If only she knew what was in his heart.
Does he want her for the woman she is, or for her magical abilities? When war breaks out between kingdoms and ancient enemies of the dragons resurface, the clan will be tested. In the midst of uncertainty, can Huroth and Orwenna find their way together?
Gemma Ridley’s first encounter with Squire Kenrik proves nothing short of alarming. So much so, she considers fleeing back to the city, despite the fact only poverty and scandal await her there. Could those challenges be worse than staying as governess on a haunted estate and working for a dangerously handsome eccentric?
Little does Gemma realize what dark secrets and wondrous enchantments will transform her life at Rook Hall. Squire Kenrik is more than he seems—more than any man she has known. He may be the source of her undoing, or he may hold the key to her deepest desires. Only time and the guidance of her heart will tell.
