Poet. Author of the 5-star young adult fantasy trilogy FAYBORN. Book-worm ("hoards books in shelves & spare rooms; likes to sleep surrounded by them." Derivation, Old Tolkienic).
In spare time, chairs the folklore department at Lightfoot College.
Sometimes fairies believe in you… and it’s not always pretty.
When Oberon needs to sacrifice her family to restore his shattered kingdom, Petra will fight for their freedom and sanity as the world she knows and the people she trusts are transformed by supernatural invasion.
Petra is supposed to be starting college, but these fairies are real and they need her help. There’s just one catch: they want her to become a desperate tyrant’s sworn servant. Forever.

The Eighth Square (Fayborn #2)
They want her alive… and they’ll kill to get her.
Dodging the supernatural is making Petra’s freshman year very difficult. Emissaries from the imprisoned Faerie Queen are looking for her. The Militia watch her everywhere she goes. Oberon’s servants keep trying to kidnap her.
Petra is certain she doesn’t have special powers. She didn’t even know about the thousands of Fayborn refugees hiding on earth until last summer. She’s still not sure she believes any of it: her aunt, her godfather, and her roommate do seem a bit crazy.
Friends and family are trying hard to keep her safe, but the Fayborn seeking her help are getting desperate…

A First or Final Mischief (Fayborn #3)
Her aunt's been abducted.
Her mother is missing.
Her enemy is waiting.
And the person she counted on for help is dead.
Too late to free the Faerie Queen, Petra Godfellow and her allies face a terrible choice: Either Petra surrenders and swears to serve James Oberon, or he will torture her Aunt Penny.
If she agrees to James's demands, the Faerie kingdom will be restored... with James on its throne, and Petra condemned to eternal servitude. Any alternative abandons Penny to torture and her mother to an unknown fate.
Unless, of course, the Cat chooses to intervene...
