The Dark and Dangerous Gifts of Delores Mackenzie April 6th 2023
Paranormal fiction for readers aged 10 and over.
The Dark and Dangerous Gifts of Delores Mackenzie follows 14-year-old Delores as she tries take control of her extraordinary levels of necromancy. After she’s almost drowned by a particularly grabby paranormal entity, she’s sent to the mysterious Uncles in Edinburgh Old Town to learn how to control her dangerous gifts, but when a sinister apparition threatens the lives of her strange new housemates, Delores has to gather all her strength to save them. It’s a ghost-filled, shapeshifting paranormal whydunnit, but it’s also about personal boundaries, trust and the joy of found family. It’s aimed at readers who enjoy Jonathan Stroud, Phil Hicks, and Frances Hardinge. If you liked Netflix’s Wednesday or Lockwood & Co, you might like this too.

Undiscovered Voices 2020 Anthology
Tulip Finola Barnacle
In 2020, I was selected for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Undiscovered Voices Anthology with my submission Tulip Finola Barnacle. As a Book, Tulip remains close to my heart as it opened a lot of doors for me, but it remains unpublished. Who knows, maybe one day! The anthology includes the work of several authors who are also now published, including Anneliese Avery, Michael Mann, Adam Connor and Anna Brooke. If you're still on your own path to publication, it really is worth a look and worth entering the next round of Undiscovered Voices. You can download the anthology free of charge using by following the link below.
Look out for new projects coming soon!
News on upcoming projects and events (plus how to book) is available on the News page of the website and the accompanying blog.
