What I Write

Writing Sample

“I can’t say I ever wondered what it felt like to be human. But then, my grandfather Grenat always said, It’s safer not to talk to your food – and as every dragon knows, humans are the most dangerous kind of meal there is.”

– The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart (Bloomsbury Books), winner of the Cybils Award for Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction 2017.

What I Write

I write wildly romantic historical fantasy novels for adults and fun, funny fantasy novels for children. Oh, and short stories, too. 🙂

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

I want to write at least 10,000 words in the six weeks of the writeathon.

Fundraising Goals

I’ll be hugely grateful to anyone who sponsors me with a donation. I could never have attended the Clarion West workshop if I hadn’t been supported by scholarships myself, and it’s really important to me that other new writers get that opportunity, too.
