News & Updates

Kicking Off 2020

Jan 09, 2020

SO MUCH going on as we head into a new year (could it because it’s been six months since I last updated you? Maybe? Who really knows??)

Anyway, here’s the rundown:


Sequel

The next installment of Threads of Dreams didn’t make it for 2019, but it did get written.

Look forward to more hauntings, more monsters, more revelations, and a bonus roadtrip to the BC interior.

Revisions, a lot of research as the adventure heads out of the city, and a few rounds of editing lie ahead, but I hope to keep things moving and work on book 3 when book 2’s off for editing this year because y’all are gonna hate me if I leave you...

First Anthology

Aug 13, 2019

Surprise! One of my stories got picked up for an anthology by Fiction-Atlas Press (coming out next month already!!! 😱)

A Song of Dark Things is a contemporary dark fantasy inspired by the Scottish fairytales Thomas the Rhymer & The Fiddlers of Tomnahurich and my own travels at the edge of the (old) world. ✨

Blurb “A Highland teen desperate to escape her smalltown existence makes a deal with the fae to achieve her dreams of stardom, only to discover her heart’s desire comes at an unexpected cost.”

I’m super excited about this story—it’s especially perfect for all of you who loved On the Edge; unsettling and creepy and gorgeous. 💖💖💖
