Val Ross is a lifelong dreamer and procrastinator. By now, she should have written at least five books in the Veridurum Series, but four of them are still fighting for attention inside her head.

A former Primary School teacher and gift shop manager, (not at the same time) Val's achievements include assembling several items of flat-pack furniture and managing reasonably competent parallel parking (also not at the same time).

Val lives in Yorkshire, tolerated and humoured by many good friends.

Quite well written and a pleasant enough light read, but far too much detail in the world-building for my taste. The two storyline strands were handled well, and I liked the way the plot resolved. Sadly, I found much of the humour was hidden amongst ...more
