Growing up I used to write all kinds of things, from short stories, to lyrics, but as I got further in school, my love for reading fizzled out. It was only when I left University and begun working in a bookstore in my hometown that my love for reading was rekindled. A customer at the time introducing me to the Paranormal Romance genre. It didn’t take me long to realise this was the genre for me, falling in love with it right away and reading through entire series in little more than a week.
When the stories came to an end, or I struggled to find that particular one I was looking for, I decided I would write my own.
It begun as a long process of drafts and editing, but eventually I got there with the help and support of friends and family, and a strong community of authors on a certain Facebook group.
Now that I’ve begun on this path, I never want it to end. I love sharing my stories with others, hoping that they enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
My motivation comes from all those people who have helped support me over the years. Without their help and guidance, I’m not sure I would ever have made it this far. But before that, before I began on this journey, it is those authors who rekindled my love of reading who motivated me to give it a shot myself. One particular author who always found the time to respond kindly, sharing an online community website that would help me get the feedback on my writing that I desperately needed at the time.
He’s a Guardian, sworn to protect the creatures of lore.
She’s a human who can’t remember her past.
WEAK. BROKEN. ROGUE.
That’s how Thane Marrok, wolf shifter, and soldier in the elite organisation known as The Guardians, sees himself – forced to live a lonely and tortured existence after witnessing the death of his family at the hands of humans. When he’s forced to return to the place where all his nightmares began, he comes face to face with an unfamiliar human female who triggers the wolf’s deepest, darkest desires.
Can Thane put his past behind him and be the protector, and lover, that Anya needs? Or will he succumb to his hatred of her kind, and lose the woman meant to be his for eternity?
HUNTED. GUARDED. BETRAYED.
Anya Shaw leads a quiet, uneventful existence until the appearance of a black wolf turns her life upside down. Now she’s involved in a world she never knew existed, hunted for reasons she doesn’t understand, and guarded by a man she never expected.
Can she unlock the secrets of her past, and her heart, in time to tame the wolf and save Thane from himself? Or will the hunters get there first, destroying any hope they have left?
