Vanessa K. Eccles is the creator of beautiful and terrifying creatures. She's a pursuer of elegant prose that bites with truth and never lets go. In the search for beautifully broken characters, she's not afraid to delve into the dark side of humanity and fantasy to find the most authentic and relatable monsters, reminding us all that we are each fearfully and wonderfully made.

When she's not writing or devouring books, she enjoys life with her Prince Charming and their four dogs.

My first impression of the book was that this was something I was going to love, and I wasn't wrong. The description and cover baited me, and the story held my interest all the way to the end.

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

J.K. Rowling
“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
J.K Rowling

J.R.R. Tolkien
“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Chaim Potok
“I've begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.”
Chaim Potok, The Chosen

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“My heart is warm with the friends I make,
And better friends I'll not be knowing,
Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,
No matter where it's going.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, The Selected Poetry
