Book Announcement

Category: Uncategorized

It’s been a minute but I’m delighted to share that I have signed a 3 book deal with US publisher, 8th Note Press for a new fantasy trilogy. Book 1, THE LOST SAINT, is scheduled for release in the Fall (US) 2024. The announcement featured in Publishers Marketplace this week!

The Pitch:

When a heart-broken teen finds herself thrust into the Middle Ages, she must outsmart bloodthirsty Northmen, escape a superstitious mob and save an injured knight to reach a mystic with the power to return her to her own time.

In the coming months I look forward to sharing more information about book one, including the cover design and the inspiration behind the series.

In Other News:

I am also excited to share that I have signed a deal with Bolinda Audio for THE LOST SAINT and all of my backlist (the Spark series and The Rift). It’s wonderful to give these books a new lease of life in the world. Spark and The Rift are available now on Audible, while Stray and Shield will be released later in the year.

Needless to say, all of these good things have come about thanks to the hard work and the amazing support of my agent, Silvia Molteni at Peters, Fraser and Dunlop. I am so grateful and excited to see what’s next.

Be sure to stay tuned on social media for updates, news and giveaways to come. (I am starting a new newsletter and mailing list in the coming weeks with a new provider – so don’t sign up yet – and upgrading my website).
