Thank you, Berengaria, for inviting me over to your blog!
Well, it has been nearly six months since I launched my writing career now and it has been a hectic time. Looking back, I have accomplished a lot. Four e-books released so far and three more contracted for release in the coming months. All I really need to time to take a breather, but there is no rest for the wicked as they say!
So, here is a little bit about me and my latest releases.
I am 28 years old, born in UK, but living in Adelaide, South Australia with my Aussie fiancé. I have loved reading and writing from a young age and am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my own writing career.
When I am not writing, I also love: reading, theatre, music, cinema, art, photography, cross stitch...and many more. I only wish I had more time to fit everything in that I want to do.
My latest releases form the first two parts of my four part paranormal mini-series called Time Keepers. Each short part (3500 words) continues the story and a new part is released each month. Time Keepers is set in the near future when the government has discovered the existence of supernatural beings and is trying to eradicate some and use others for their own purposes. In this world we meet Nick and Ellie. Thrown together by chance, they each have a secret and soon find themselves pursued by the Time Keepers.
Time Keepers – Part 1 – Running Blind
"It seems like any ordinary day as Nick waits for the train, but then a chance encounter with a young woman turns his world upside down. What is it that she is running from and will helping her jeopardise his own secret, making him a target too?"
Time Keepers – Part 2 – The Beast Within
"With Nick’s secret now exposed, he and Ellie must run for their lives, pursued by the Governor and his Time Keepers. Will they be able to stay hidden or is their time nearly up?"
Both these works are available through: OmniLit, Smashwords, Bookstrand, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
