I write fantasy historical novels, like the steampunk series THE ARTIFACT HUNTERS. I also have a new YA series that is a play on fairytales set in Edwardian times with a scattering of the undead, starting with ELLA, THE SLAYER.

I do not auto-follow, sorry, but if you have any questions about the road to publication please feel free to pm me. I try to respond to all questions :) Please do not advertise your work on my profile or in my works, it's just rude.

You can find all my books by visiting my Amazon author page:
