We are Latimer and Ridley- two girls, best friends and most importantly eccentrics and fan-girls of the highest order!
We are co-authors, with one shared dream - to write, write and write some more!
We're aiming to create lots of fan-girl worthy, young adult, urban fantasy stories - think, romance, adventure, mystery and magic - with lots of strange happenings and quirky characters
We draw, we write, we listen, we squee (sometimes all at once)!
We have a group too if you are interested, please check us out in our strange urban fantasy town
If you want to know more about us, have a chat or share an obsession (always in the market for another one!), please check us out at our various haunts!
