Cover Reveal: Squelched

I’m thrilled to be able to reveal the cover of Squelched. Release date January 2020.

Tory’s life is comfortably routine. She has her cat, her job at the Laurel Glen Library, and her friend Jess. She’s happy and content … until she loses her job, finds her deadbeat dad, and discovers she’s a monster with deadly powers.

FBI Agent Nico Michaelson was hoping for the assignment to launch his career. Instead he’s stuck following Tory and her crazy cat. But is she really the monster the government believes she is? And is he willing to kill her, or would he rather ask her out?

Sparks fly in this lighthearted urban fantasy in which the only likely casualty is one man’s heart.

Cover Reveal: The Dragon Homecoming

I’m pleased to be able to reveal the cover for the fourth (and final) book in the Dragon Slayer series.

Dragon Homecoming

It’s a legendary beast—feared even by dragons. But is it real?

The Dragon Defence League faces its wildest challenge yet as its members chase an elusive monster all the way to the end of the earth.

Happy Book Birthday!

As of today, all editions of The Dragon Defence League are available: print, e-book, and dyslexia-friendly print edition!

Bringing down an international dragon smuggling ring requires bravery, teamwork, quick thinking, and a touch of arson.

Do Ella, Nathan, Tui, and Oliver have what it takes, or will they become casualties in their own war against the smugglers?

This is book 3 of my Dragon Slayer series. I’m currently writing book 4–Taniwha.

Upcoming Events!

This Saturday, 24 November, will be a great day for book lovers in Christchurch! Two great events will be running all day. I’ve teamed up with author Jo Carson-Barr, so we’ll both have a presence at each event.

Jo will be meeting readers and selling both our books at the Wham Bam Author Jam, at the Addington Raceway from 10 to 4. Lots of other authors will be there, too, from New Zealand and Australia. It’s a great chance to discover some new authors and books!

I’ll be at the Tamariki Book Festival in Raoura Park from 10 to 3, along with a bunch of other local authors. The Festival includes readings (mine is at 10.20 am), activities for kids (including a scavenger hunt with prizes!), and opportunities for kids of all ages to do a little creative writing of their own. I’ll have live insects for kids to check out, and will talk about how I use science in my creative writing. I’ll also be selling my books and Jo’s.
