DescriptionFolk have been heard to say, 'There's madness in my family.' How would you feel if you found yourself saying, 'There's monsters in my family,' or even, 'Supernatural beings?'
Elissa Brown is an average, orange haired teenager who deems herself a geek. She lives with her Grandmother in a small village surrounded by sea and roaming hills. Her mother is dead leaving nothing but a few oddments and a smelly book of tales full of strange beings and stories of magic, love and loss.
Her heart yearns for the boy next door. Her love is unrequited until she stumbles into a world where romance becomes reality and the monsters of fairy tales are just a strand of DNA away, waiting for a catalyst to unleash them.

From then on I was obsessed with writing. I found a treasure trove of stories on browning paper, scrawled with my own childish script. Reading them I was filled with a mixture of pride that I had been an ardent writer from such a young age, and sadness that I had forgotten this storytelling passion and left many tales unfinished.
I still love drawing, especially with my children, but I am over the moon I have told a story from start to finish. Many challenges barred the way. I lost thirty thousand words when my computer crashed and I've had two children necessitating writing this novel in the wee hours of the night and in the quiet time before dawn and their rising.
The second book in this series is already underway. The time it takes me to write it depends on my little ones going to bed and being quiet until morning - here's hoping!
