I am unbelievably excited to officially announce that I am publishing my debut novel in February!
It’s been a six-year journey to get to this point, with lots of ups and downs, thousands of hours of work, a ton of new learning, and yes, more than a few tears.
Greenhaelan (Chronicles of Algarth #1) is an adult fantasy novel that opens in a small town in Australia and then travels to the island of Algarth, where the people have never heard of cars, social media or microwaves. On the other hand, some of them can shape metal with their minds, heal with a touch and a thought, or communicate with animals.
In spite of these amazing abilities, things aren’t perfect in Algarth, and that’s where Australian gardener Sara Martin comes into the story.
Self-employed gardener Sara Martin has known from childhood that gardens are enchanted places. But she never expected the magic to be literal.
Miraculously swept away to a landscape dying in the grip of an ecological disaster, Sara discovers that the enchantment is as real as the danger. And when a forbidden healing power manifests in her, she is forced to question everything she has built her life on.
Uncertain how far she can trust her outlaw companions, pursued by an enemy intent on her destruction, Sara must decide how much she is willing to risk for a place and a people that are not her own.
And she will be forced to face the question: what is the price for choosing a safe, little life?
But wait, there’s more!
The other piece of exciting news is that right now I have a limited number of digital ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) of the novel to give away, in Epub and Kindle format.
So, if Greenhaelan sounds like something you’d be interested in reading (and hopefully reviewing), send an email to me with your request.
And in case you’re worried, I promise I won’t add you to any mailing lists, except the one to receive the ARC.
