It’s my birthday today (how can I be 26? I’m not old enough to be 26!) so I thought I’d treat myself and indulge in a bit of self-promotion πŸ™‚Β Originally I wasn’t going to include a lot, only the blurb and links to my facebook, twitter, …. but then I thought nuh, it’s my birthday.

Treat yo’self πŸ˜‰


Thank you so much to everyone who’s made CookieBreak such a fantastic experience for me. You’ve all been fantastic, and if you’re one of those awesome people who drops in with every post and leaves a comment each time – I love you. Thank you for being here.

Now, put your party hats on and celebrate with me! πŸ˜€


‘Rise of the Sparrows’ Blurb

Rifarne is a country opposed to magic. When its people demand harsh action, King Aeric sees himself with no other choice but to outlaw those with the gift. Rachael, a homeless orphan with the rare gift of a Seer, soon finds herself with visions of her own violent death. When her escape goes wrong and she ends up in the clutches of a vicious witch woman lusting for her blood, she finds she is the only person to stop the war against people like her – and assassinating the King to become Queen to a people who once wanted her dead may well be the only way to do just that.

Character Intros

A little while ago I posted some character introductions for some of the characters in Rise of the Sparrows. In case you’ve missed them, here they are πŸ™‚





Commander Videl

World Map

Since Relics of Ar’Zac will be a High Fantasy trilogy, I’m including maps to help you find your way.

This is the map of Rifarne, the country where Rise of the Sparrows takes place – beautifully created by MonkeyBlood Design:


This is the map of the world I’m currently working on. It’s still just a draft but will be turned into a prettier version like the one above later on:


Favourite Post So Far

I’ve massively enjoyed everything about Cookie Break since I started it last year, but the feedback on one post specifically made my day and gave me the warm, proud fuzzies. It was one of my 10Minute shorts (if you’re new here – every Monday morning I used to write for ten minutes; the new posts, 642, have replaced that) and my first go at writing sci-fi.

It’s my birthday, so I’m including it even though it’s got nothing to do with my trilogy πŸ™‚

The Last Second In the Universe

Social Media

There are a few other places where you can find me as well, namely





It’s all related to my writing, of course, so please feel free to say hi on any or all of the above πŸ™‚


Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go find some cake… ❀
