This watercolour was done years ago, and served as the first inspiration for my in-progress steampunk fantasy novel. Ana lives a double life as a governess by day, and a city prowling vigilante by night. Stay tuned for more artwork from the Clockwork Universe.
This is a rough painting of Queen Clíodhna (Klee-uh-nah), the banshee queen. Pictured left in her glamoured form (so that she appears human), and right in her true form. She features in the current chapter of Mercy that I’m working on, and I had the urge to draw her on the iPad. Banshees are infamous … More The Banshee Queen
This week I finally got access to the complete album from the very talented Lena Matienko. The new album Mosaic is a compilation of gorgeous instrumentals, which are perfect for writing to. If you’re anything like me, you can’t write to songs with lyrics, or the words somehow end up in the dialogue, so instrumentals … More Music to Write to
A little piece of teaser artwork for a project I have in the works. These ladies are members of the only all-female gang on the desert word Isparda. The Painted Cats are one of many governing gangs on Isparda, which is one of five planets in the system. Stay tuned for more teasers and tidbits … More The Painted Cats

Last year I dedicated much of my writing time to a different project, a steampunk inspired, high-fantasy novel, set across five planets in the same solar system. It’s the largest, and possibly most ambitious project I’ve undertaken, but I’m … More Sweet Mercy

While this is by no means an exhaustive list, it does bring together 12 of my most loved characters. Each character … More The New Pantheon
This year work begins on the third and final instalment in the Ninth Circle trilogy. So to kick things off here is a quick little art post of the three main ladies; Tala, Lisana and Aiva.
The time has finally come. The Ninth Circle – Strength is out and available for purchase from Amazon. From the back cover: The trinity is broken and the Morrígan — the triple goddess of war — is banished, or so Tala Morgenstern claims. But the reappearance of an old enemy brings with it the realisation that their … More The Ninth Circle Sequel Out Now
It’s been a while since I posted here, but it seemed like the right time for an update. I’m currently hard at work finishing up the final touches on the second book of The Ninth Circle trilogy, Strength. In honour of the upcoming release, I thought it was high time I posted some more art. So here’s … More Three of a Kind
I’m so excited to announce that the paperback edition of The Ninth Circle – Fire is now available for purchase on Amazon! This book has been in progress for several years now, and I’m so pleased to see it finally in print. Paranormal fantasy has always intrigued me, and pairing one of my classical favourites (Dante’s … More The Ninth Circle is Now Available
