The author of Thorn Jack, Briar Queen, and Nettle King. (The Children of Night and Nothing series) Pretty good Painter and terrible gardener. Loves Faery, the Gothic, Victorian writers, the female surrealists, botany, and myth & folklore. My aunt once dated a Beatle, my father loved to read Mark Twain, and, if I was brave enough, I'd explore all those haunted woods and houses.

I've started a new series, which will hopefully find its way out into the world. The inspirations for this series were Sherlock Holmes and Penny Dreadful. Three young people meet on a bridge one night and discover that a criminal organization with supernatural origins has been responsible for tragedies in each of their lives...(less)

It's a publisher typo. There was a character named Jane Ivy, whose name was changed at the last minute to Jane Emory. Unfortunately, whoever did the corrections at the publisher simply autocorrected 'ivy' to 'Emory'. The paperback version of Thorn Jack and any ebook versions will be corrected. And I've made sure that doesn't happen with Briar Queen! And thank you for loving the book, despite that!(less)

“Let us go forth, the tellers of tales, and seize whatever prey the heart long for, and have no fear. Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust under our feet.”
W.B. Yeats

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
W.B. Yeats

“Even broken in spirit as he is, no one can feel more deeply than he does the beauties of nature. The starry sky, the sea, and every sight afforded by these wonderful regions, seems still to have the power of elevating his soul from earth. Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery, and be overwhelmed by disappointments; yet, when he has retired into himself, he will be like a celestial spirit that has a halo around him, within whose circle no grief or folly ventures.”
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein

“It was anyway all a long time ago; the world, we know now, is as it is and not different; if there was ever a time when there were passages, doors, the borders open and many crossing, that time is not now. The world is older than it was. Even the weather isn’t as we remember it clearly once being; never lately does there come a summer day such as we remember, never clouds as white as that, never grass as odorous or shade as deep and full of promise as we remember they can be, as once upon a time they were.”
John Crowley, Little, Big

“Learning to decipher words had only added to the pleasures of holding spines and turning pages, measuring the journey to the end with a thumb-riffle, poring over frontispieces. Books! Opening with a crackle of old glue, releasing perfume; closing with a solid thump.”
John Crowley, Little, Big
