Aiki lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband, (Ernest), teenage son (Leonidis - not their real names, obviously), aging dog and directionally-challenged fish.
In between being a wife, running a business full-time and helping Leonidis with homework, she squeezes in a few hobbies, including:
Martial arts, painting, writing, reading, bellydancing and playing three or four musical instruments. Occasionally she even sleeps. Very occasionally.

The Shadows series came about when I was watching a doco on different typed of hominids. Won't give any spoilers.

Mind you, there was a long break in between the 80AD series and the Ruadhan Sidhe trilogy. And I spent a lot of that time learning the craft of writing so I could spin the silken stories in my head into webs of intricacy and beauty. Not sure I've succe Read more of this blog post »

Hi Aiki, Sorry I have only just seen this question. Thank you for requesting a review, but I am not really a book reviewer and only provide cursory reviews of books I read for leisure. My TBR is booked solid through to February next year. Cheers, Kal See Kali’s answer.
Blackbirds Sing by Aiki Flinthart
"You know those classic opening lines that everyone quotes? This book has one of those. Hooked from the first line! Historical fiction and the Tudors are my favourite genre - which makes me a pretty harsh critic. I could not put this book down. Aiki F" Read more of this review »

A sweet tale. Definitely middle grade to young YA, but lovely and easy read. The China setting is great for a change from medieval fantasy. Enjoyable as long as you aren't after something challenging and just want to relax.
