My debut book has now been released!
From an idea for a scene that popped into my head in 2001 (which you’ll be able to read in book 2), to a writing journey that saw me pen 16 drafts, query and deal with 22 rejections, decide to give up, decide to keep going, sign and leave a small press contract, and self-publish… I bring you, Blackbirch: The Beginning!
Blackbirch: The Beginning
Welcome to Blackbirch. It’s a place no one forgets. Except for Josh Taylor.
The fatal car crash took more than 17-year-old Josh’s parents. It stole his memories and returned him to his birthplace, Blackbirch, a tourist town steeped in a history of witchcraft.
Amongst friends he’s forgotten and a life he doesn’t want, Josh is haunted by nightmares so believable he swears the girl in his dreams is real. Kallie is so captivating he ignores her blood-stained hands, but he can’t overlook the blue glow summoned to her skin.
Kallie says it’s an ancient magic they share and a secret worth hiding, because as Josh discovers, they aren’t the only gifted ones.
To restore his memories and find the true cause of the car accident, he must learn what’s real. And what secrets Blackbirch has buried in its woods.
