Thanks for the great question! I read The Chronicles of Narnia and just loved the way C.S. Lewis told an exciting story set in a remarkable world but which also explored some deeper themes. I think that was the moment I decided I wanted to write fantasy. The Poison Tree Path Chronicles is a fast-paced adventure trilogy, set in a very different world to our own but the story also touches on deep issues. For instance, in the first book of the trilogy, Chains of Gwyndorr, a theme that emerges is choice and consequence. The characters make choices which ultimately lead them to truth and freedom or deeper into captivity.(less)

Why do you call me good?





“I’d like to speak to the rabbi,” I say, with only a slight tremor in my voice.





By all accounts, this rabbi’s teachings are wise and his miracles, spectacular. Some even say he is our long-awaited Messiah. Perhaps Rabbi Jesus holds the answers to the questions of my heart.









The rabbi’s disciple glances at my rich robes and then deferentially inclines his head.  “Of course, sir! An important man like

An interesting look into medieval England's politics and shifting religious landscape, where the victims to the shifts of power were often the women used as pawns by power-hungry men.
