Ogre killer, witch subduer, bookkeeper for the Gnomes Of Terrible Hirsuteness Society, and Fairy documentarist, Alessa uses any spare time she has to write her accounts of the Fey kingdom before her memories can be wiped clean.

Curse of the Fey is the final installment in the Morgana Trilogy, a young adult fantasy series based on the memoirs of Morgan Pendragon that were relayed through the goodwill and resilience of pigeon messengers (a true feat in dragon- and harpy-infested skies).

Alessa has also won the second prize at the CINEFANTASY International Short Film Screenwriting Competition in 2016 for her screenplay The Seeker's Key, a tale of two brave children in a tension-filled immigration camp.

Hi Laurah,

Yes, I'm definitely still working on book three (final editing stages). I'm so very sorry it's taking me this long to finish it--definitely not what I'd intended!

I suppose Life had other plans for me (in the let-me-kick-you-where-it-counts kinda way), but I've worked hard to get back on the saddle (cue in intense voodoo chanting to cleanse the air and avoid further mishaps) so I can finally share the ending with you (twists included)!

Of course, I'll let you know as soon as I get closer to publishing! In the meantime, thank you for your kind message. It helps a lot to read your enthusiasm about the Morgana Trilogy :)(less)

Hi Zoë,
I'm so very glad you love the Morgana Trilogy!
I unfortunately can't tell you exactly when the third book is coming out (I learned that the hard way with Book 2). My initial plan had been to have it ready by December of this year, but it's not a hard-set date. I'm still working on the first draft (though it's on hold until beginning of June because I have an important exam I need to take then), but I'll keep you posted via my facebook page as I make progress with each step. Once the exam on June 4th is over and done with, I'll be devoting all my free time to the book to have it good and ready as soon as possible so you may finally read how the story ends!
Thank you for asking :)

Ambition

"Ambition, I have come to believe, is the most primal and sacred fundament of our being. To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. Not to act upon that ambition is to turn out backs on ourselves and on the reason for our existence."
