Publishers Weekly on ‘Cry’

An amazing thing to wake up to! Publishers Weekly have given me an extra nice review for ‘Cry of the Firebird.’ For those that have been around for a while, you might understand why I am tripping out so hard. This book has had many lives and for it to be reborn again, this year, and getting this kind of love, it really is a bizarre feeling but a total blessing. You can read the full write up here!

Melbourne has gone into lockdown again, so I’m trying to stay positive and focused on the books I want to finish off in the second half of the year. First up will be ‘King of Wands’, and then I really want to finish off ‘Sorcerers and Saints’ a book about magic and Melbourne that I feel like I’ve been trying to write on and off for about seven years. Spliced in between these will be my inevitable rounds of structural edits of ‘Ashes’ and ‘Rise.’

I’m technically on holidays until the end of the month so I’m trying to catch up on some of my most anticipated reads of the year, namely ‘Mr Impossible’ by Maggie Steifvater and ‘Any way the wind blows’ by Rainbow Rowell. Not to mention ten Paranormal Romance books I want to get through lol. I have been so smashed with rewrites that my haggard old brain is going to take a while to catch itself up enough to really dive into some books that I didn’t write.

Hope you are all well and safe, wherever you are!

I am a Finnish Australian writer that is obsessed with magical wardrobes, doors, auroras and burial mounds that might offer me a way into another realm. Until then, I will write about fairytales, monsters, magic and mythology because that’s the next best thing.
