About this author

I live on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia, and have a absorbing passion for writing. My family get my attention in between the manic phases of writing that I go through. I even pat them sometimes. Luckily they don’t seem to mind eating takeaway food and dodging the rolling balls of hair and feathers that accumulate in our house due to the sixteen or so pets we own.

Unlike almost any other author I know of, I chose to grow my writing along with my children, and so I first tried writing picture books, then went through the junior fiction and Young Adult genres before I arrived at adult fantasy. This is what I love. I never quite figured out how to write for children as I was forever trying to write down to them – not a

Getting into editing my latest Lyrical Press novel, Machinations of the Blood (previously Magience) - mainly because my evul editor, Nerine, has made me do it.

Steampunk with zombies and strange contraptions and an empire ruled by a man who likes to get his own way, even if he has to slice his own son up to do it.

Nasty stuff, and I love it. I just need to figure out how to make love and zombies... Read more of this blog post »

Edge of Humanity (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 22, 2010 08:05PM
Description: From the moment Kara plunged from the airship to escape nine years of slavery, she’d been locked in battle with her own mind. Something inside of her doesn’t seem right. Confronted with too many unanswered questions, she wonders if her captors have damaged her in some unseen way. Seeking answers, Kara begins the journey of reuniting with the family she hasn’t seen since she was a child. Thankfully she isn’t alone on her quest… Hassrian, a young apprentice to a biomechanical magician, helps guide her down her path. Although Hassrian is reluctant to aid her at first, danger draws the two together. With the airship, Husk, looming above and intent on recapturing her, only one thing can bring Kara’s hunt to an end - the truth.

Good, well-plotted steam punk book with some very nice and unique world-building. Characterization was tops. Most memorable quirk would have to be when the werewolf manages to get drunk on formaldehyde from pathology specimens. Yucky, yet hilarious. ...more
