Writer of Mystery, Magic & Mayhem
I'm a writer of multiple personalities! I write fiction for young adults, teens and young readers. My stories range from action-adventure in exotic locations to fairy godmothers in training to dystopian and apocalyptic tales of survival and love.
I've split my web site into two sections. If you are interested in Chasing Danger or my futuristic novels for teen readers -- Dark Parties and Half Lives, then click the links to the right. If you are looking for my Magic Trix series, please use the links to the left.
And...if you just want to find out more about me and my books -- or book me for an event -- then the links above are for you.
Chasing Danger series -- my new middle grade, action-adventure series -- will be published in October!
Here's a teaser
from Mystery at the Ice Hotel...
After surviving a pirate attack in the tropics, teens Chase and Mackenzie escape to an exclusive resort in the Arctic Circle. But just after they arrive, suspicious accidents begin to occur. It seems like someone’s trying to scare away the guests.
When the accidents turn deadly, it’s up to the girls to figure out whodunit … before they become the next victims.
This holiday’s going to be killer!
About Chasing Danger...
“I couldn’t shake the feeling that this vacation might actually kill me.”
When fourteen-year-old Chase Armstrong is sent to visit her grandmother at a remote tropical resort, she’s looking forward to sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. The last thing she expects is danger. But she’s in for some surprises. She discovers another girl hiding out on the island and uncovers a devastating secret about the mum she’s never known. When modern-day pirates attack the island, it’s up to Chase to outrun, out-think and outfight the pirates. . . before it’s too late!
New, Thought-provoking Anthology
From the perils of online chat rooms, doping in sport, racism and terrorism, to gender and self-esteem issues, love, life and death, Stories from The Edge isn’t afraid to ask some big questions. Sometimes frightening, often funny, always brutally honest, these stories will take you to where the shadows are darkest and the ground drops away.
I'm thrilled to be part of The Edge -- eight, award-winning, UK-based authors who have teamed up to do events and create this anthology. My short story 'Nightlight' is featured in the anthology. It was inspired, in part, by the famous quote from Edmund Burke, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.’ I wanted to explore those moments when we are faced with the choice to either stand up for what is right or look the other away.
