Like all storytellers, I love to spin new tales wherever I go, and have left a trail of giants, fairies, battles, and magic from the sun-soaked coasts of California to the regular-soaked flatlands of Belgium, and everywhere in between.

Blood of the Fey, her first published novel and the first in the Morgana Trilogy, was written at coffee shops between a day job in finance and nights of "research" watching Korean dramas. Rise of the Fey is the second entry in the series and was finished in winter-time Brussels, where the pounding rain soothed the rambunctious temper that inevitably arose after long editorial hours.

For a closer look at my devious mind’s inner workings, please check out my blog.

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 :)

That is the precise moment to take a break. Stress and burnout occur if you don't. Ecstasy returns to you if you do.
