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
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
This was a personal art project from last year. I wanted to create a set of Tarot inspired cards that featured a “pantheon” of new goddesses, all based on my favourite ladies from fiction. 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 weekend I decided to bust out the watercolour paints. I haven’t used watercolours in more years than I can remember, but I felt like getting into it anyway. When I uncovered one of my old sketch pads, I discovered a pencil outline of a character from an old WIP novel that I had all … More Sabriet
Two things happened on Sunday. The first was that I successfully completed NaNoWriMo 2016. I managed to reach 50,000 words, and with a few days to spare. I must admit, it was a very good feeling when I finally got to click that Validate button on the NaNo site. The fun’s not over yet, however. … More NaNo Update – The Lion’s Share
This month is supposed to be for writing, and trust me, I have been working on it. My word count is currently sitting at around 22,000. Not bad for day 11. But, I will admit that I have been doing more than just write. It’s been the season for crafts in my house (owing largely … More Inspiration In Many Forms
