Natalie writes stories of mixed genre, especially, romance, mystery, suspense and fantasy. She got her first taste of serious writing in her teens by penning poetry, short stories, and articles for college and local publications. At university, she trained as a lawyer. Many years later, after somewhat abandoning the legal profession for the greener pastures that language provides, Natalie freelanced as a writer and editor. As her writing suggests, her tastes in books are eclectic, but she possesses an extensive collection of romance and mystery novels, both in print and on e-reader. She loves to meet other authors and readers.
Natalie is married and has one son. She spent 11 years in Atlanta, Georgia with her American husband, but since 2009 she calls the beautiful island of Malta home. When she isn't working or writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, watching a good movie and most of all, reading. Her strong belief is that writers should not feel compelled to write only one type of story as creativity shouldn't be put in a neat little box. All writers should write what's in their heart - as long as they give it their best.

Inescapable, book one in the Eternelles series is a promising start to this series.
It’s never a dull moment for mother and Daughter Adri and Sera. Sera Part Phoenix, part Vampyre and an eternelle, is feeling the pressure of dominance from her controlling mother ‘Adri’ and Rafe, the Vampyre who turned her. Left alone for a century, Rafe appears to stake his claim on Sera and her body just when the pressure of her mother increases when a mystery is to be solved.
Adri daughter of Dionysos, the Greek god of wine and revelry, is at her wits end, after her friend is killed by a soul stealer and a statue is stolen, her daughter Sera is now in danger and tries to protect her at all costs. But Sera fights her control at every corner. When Des comes on the scene Adri’s feelings for the mysterious man complicate things further and adds to the stress and mystery and the passion.
My only criticism on the book is in some parts, there is a tad tendency of over description between a question, a though and an answer, that sometimes you have to read back to refresh what was said.” And at first I was a little confused as to which character you were reading from their prospective as it changes throughout the book, though that said, I enjoyed the writing style.
I liked all the characters and secretly hope that Rafe will be a knight in shining armour for Sera and the same with Des to Adri.
A book with passion, obsession, mystery and murder, it’s a recipe for a brilliant series, which I hope book two ‘Indomitable’ won’t be a too long wait?
