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.
Also work in progress is a time-travel stand alone story and a portal fantasy series. SO MUCH TO WRITE.(less)

Shadows Wake by Aiki Flinthart
"This was a great book for readers who like fantasy, and at the same time would like their action to be realistic. Flinthart has created a believable protagonist, a well-textured setting, and a 'I need to catch my breath' plot; this isn't the book..." Read more of this review »
