LL Watkin is the pen name for writing partnership Liz Smith and Louise Smith, two sisters from the North of England who've been writing together for nearly ten years but only started publishing in 2012. We write a mixture of short stories and full length novels in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and while some stories may be more Louise's and others more Liz's, all spring from a collaborative process.
As of the middle of 2015 we have six novels and two short story collections in print. The Leviathan series (Jethabel, Therion, Pathiel) is a ship bound sci-fi, and The Handmaiden (The Abbey at the World's End, The Chapel in the Wasteland, The Cathedral in the Void) is a genre-crossing sci-fi with magical elements affair. The short story collections (The Harpers & other stories, The Drowned Leviathan & other stories) each contain 12-16 stories in a range of genres and styles, some of which are also available separately.
We have a schedule of short stories to be published throughout 2015, which will be collected as "The Witch Shrink and Other Stories" in December. Following that there will be a novella series out in 2016, and the fourth book in the Handmaiden series.

Several things were a bit jumbled and/or misleading. The cover hinted at a nice tale of friendship between a boy and his unicorn. There was a unicorn, but no boy, instead a young warrior. Mary a commoner or knights daughter with a tiara marries a widowed lord to provide an heir, and thus spare everyone from an evil fate. The bad guy apparently is a sorcerer and causes a storm that drowns Mary's father and probably her husband; it is a bit unclear if his body was found. She is rescued by the secret warrior and decides to seduce him to produce an heir. The end.
