I'm a teenager trapped in the body of a thirty-something! I write the kind of books I like to read - something achingly romantic with twists and turns, topped with a good dose of escapism and individuality. I love reading teen fiction: I adored The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Sookie Stackhouse novels, The Shiver Series, The Hush Hush Saga. I hope my books (as and when I finish them and publish them here!) have a similar flavour to these great novels. I live in England and work as an English teacher and this is reflected in my work which is as English as a pot of tea and a plate of scones! If people are kind enough to read my work, I truly hope they enjoy it as much as I do.

I downloaded this as it was recommended to me by a friend. What a great recommendation! I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, and was very keen to download the next installment the following day. The characters are believable and easy to like but the thing that really had me page turning was the drip feeding of the mystery of the story - clues are revealed in an intelligent, sophisticated manner. The clever plot is presented in a clear, well-written and engaging tone which draws the reader in from the beginning. A great fantasy novella!
