Casey Lea is a mother-daughter writing partnership, which began a couple of decades ago (and counting) with the birth of Emma Casey, to Shelley Lea and Gary. A shared imagination and love of the fantastic eventually led to the creation of a growing number of books.
We write to share our passion for science-fantasy with our readers and enrich your world. Our sole goal is to send you screaming round the room, with your hair on fire and one of our stories in your hand. Metaphorically of course. Our novels are a rollercoaster, so strap yourself in.
We deliver a powerful emotional experience in fabulous settings filled with characters you love.
We achieve this with the help of our wonderful hubbies, gorgeous girls and slightly scabby cat. The dog was our most enthusiastic cheerleader and we trust she’s still looking down on us with a huge, slobbery grin.
We live a topsy-turvy life down under in New Zealand and are thrilled by modern technology’s ability to spread story and connect minds. We look forward to sharing our worlds with you…
The Iron Altar trilogy follows the paths of two women, one young and the other ancient beyond belief. Both are destined to die on the same altar.
One death would precipitate mass murder and destroy billions. The other sacrifice would claim only two lives - the martyr and the monster who made the Iron Altar.
Amber Grace will be that martyr, but only if she reaches the altar first. And only if she still thinks we are worth dying for...
Darsey Ice never thought her first trip past Jupiter would claim the lives of her crew. But then she hadn’t expected to become the first person to make contact with aliens either. Kidnapped, enslaved and lost on the Outer Rim of a mighty civilization light-years from Earth, the only person she can turn to is her enigmatic new owner. A dishonored outcast, he is just as alone as Darsey.
