My first full-length published work, The Dagger of Dresnia, is the first book in The Talismans Trilogy. Book two, The Cloak of Challiver will be released soon as an ebook here, along with a physical book available soon afterwards.

My first publication was a poem in The Manchester Guardian when I was seven. I continued to write poems, vignettes and non-fiction throughout my childhood and teenage years, and as an adult I graduated to writing reviews, interviews and feature articles for The Australian, The West Australian, Music Maker, ArtsWest, Dance Australia and other journals. (Under the name Carol Flavell Neist, I still write occasional reviews for the Artshub website.) However, I did not start writing fiction until I hit my fifties, so now I'm trying to make up for lost time!
