The Light of Oriah: Burning Jungle – Book Cover Reveal!

Ooh this is an exciting day! This book is a project I have been working on for longer than I care to say, and finally, the end is near. I can’t wait to share this young adult fantasy fiction with you all.

What do you think of the cover?

The Light of Oriah - Burning Jungle


A fast paced fantasy fiction taking us on a quest from the depths of the Congo, to the rural woodlands of England and on to the hot and humid rainforest of Borneo. Romantic, enticing and utterly addictive.

Hidden deep within the Congolese jungle live a unique and secretive family. A Vampire, a Mortal, and their fifteen year old daughter, Oriah, a Child of Venus. Their lives are idyllic. Under the blazing sun Oriah paints, swims and practices her gift of controlling the elements around her.

But the peace is not to last.

The Vampire dictator Naraku and his loyal army, The Chikara, have taken a special interest in Oriah. When they descend on her home destroying everything she holds dear, she flees to England in search of answers.

But instead of answers, she finds more questions, none of which she can seem to solve.

Is the mysterious Sebastian really trustworthy? And why is she so drawn to him?

What do the Chikara want from her?

And how far is she willing to push herself in the fight for her freedom?

Misunderstood Monster! The Wait Is Over!

I am very happy to announce that Misunderstood Monster is now available on Amazon, in both paperback and Kindle format. This is my first children’s book, a story I wrote (and illustrated) after a conversation with my son and his friend who were playing a game with an “unkind monster.”  I questioned how they knew he was unkind, and after some discussion they concluded that perhaps he was friendly after all. Just because he looked different, didn’t mean he was something to be feared. As always, I love to hear your thoughts so please remember to drop by Amazon and leave a review if you and your little ones enjoy the story.

Misunderstood Monster

When a boy bumps into a monster in the magical woods, he runs for his life. But he soon realises with the help of his woodland friends, that he may have made a hasty judgement.

A heartwarming tale of acceptance and friendship.
