Welcome to my website! I write chilling ghost stories, thrilling young adult adventure, and inspiring poetry. My books include The Boy in the Burgundy Hood and The Girl in the Ivory Dress, two standalone ghost stories in The Ghosts of Alice series, and the young adult adventure mystery series, The Secret of the Tirthas. I have also published two collections of poetry.
FOR THE FIRST TIME – TOGETHER IN ONE BOX SET – ALL 5 BOOKS OF THE SECRET OF THE TIRTHAS!
The Secret of the Tirthas follows the thrilling adventures of Lizzie Jones as she explores a garden in a remote corner of England that hides mysterious portals, or tirthas, to exotic places all over the world. The tirthas take Lizzie to Kashi, the Indian City of Light, the eerie swamplands of Louisiana, and the treacherous jungle of Cameroon – but soon she finds the portals are being exploited by demons and their servants, trying to prevent their summons to the shadowy Unknown Realms.
Can Lizzie and her new friends – the elephant rider, Pandu, and police inspector, Raj Faruwallah – stop them before they achieve their evil ends?
The ultimate binge read, The Secret of the Tirthas is a breath-taking adventure mystery series, perfect for lovers of His Dark Material and Harry Potter.
