Once Upon a Prince: my secret project revealed!

I am so excited to be able to finally share my secret project with you today. So, without further ado, here is the temporary cover of my upcoming novel, The Silver Prince:


A soldier who conjures shadows.
A princess cursed to dance.
A mystery none can solve.

The people of the Silver Isle are brutes. Savages who live in darkness for half the year. They are not to be trusted, or so Princess Isadora has been raised to believe. As Crown Princess of the Golden Isle, she is the shining light of her kingdom. But Issy is hiding a dark curse that cannot be broken. And all who attempt it end up dead…

Anders is a son of the Silver Isle, a soldier afflicted with shadow magic. This alone carries a death sentence when he steps off a ship into the port capital of the Golden Isle and finds himself in the dungeons beneath the Gilded Palace.

Now his life hangs in the balance. Can he solve the mystery of the curse and earn his freedom? Or is he doomed either way?

In the glittering, royal city of Orovía, danger doesn’t lurk in the shadows, it hides in the light. Can a Golden Princess and a Silver Prince work together to uncover the truth before it’s too late? And will their fragile alliance be enough to unite their rival kingdoms?

The Silver Prince, a Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling, is part of Once Upon a Prince, a multi-author series of clean fairy tale retellings. Each standalone story features a swoony prince fighting for his happily ever after.

Once Upon a Prince Series

The Silver Prince is one of twelve fairytale retellings in the upcoming Once Upon a Prince series, which features classic fairy tales told from the point of view of the handsome prince. If you’ve always wondered what the prince was doing while Cinderella and Aurora were dealing with evil stepmothers and magical curses, then you’ll love this series of clean, romantic fantasy, fairytale retellings.

Preorders are open now, and we’ll be revealing our covers in June, so keep an eye out!



My Writing & Publishing Plans for 2023

Hello, hello! The first month of the year is almost over, and it won’t be long before the days get longer and the nights are lighter, and snowdrops and daffodils spring up out of the ground. Basically, things will look a lot brighter soon.

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I do like to think ahead and set a few intentions for the coming year. They’re not hard and fast – I’ve learned that life doesn’t like to stay on a strict schedule and things crop up that knock you off track – but these are the loose, flexible plans I’ve got for writing and publishing in 2023.

My 2023 writing and publishing plans



  • Write secret fairytale retelling project! (More about this coming very soon)




  • Write and publish A Fair Bargain


  • Write and publish A Fair Descent


  • Publish Fair Tales collection paperback


  • Publish secret fairytale retelling project


  • Rest! I’ve published in December the last couple of years and it’s absolutely broken me, so I will be spending December 2023 enjoying the festive season and spending time with my family.

And that’s about it! What are you looking forward to most? I can’t wait to share more about my secret project with you! I think you’re going to love the entire series, if you’re a fan of sweet romance and fairytale retellings, you’ll love what we’ve got planned for you!

Happy reading, friends.



My publishing plans for the next five years

Everyone has a five year plan, right? Just me? I like to have a few goals to work towards in the short and long term, to keep me on track.

After all, if you don’t know where you’re headed, you’ll never get there, but if you have a destination in mind you’ll eventually reach it, even if you take the scenic route.

Okay, enough of the driving metaphors. Here’s what you can expect to see from me in the next five years:


January: The Solitary King, The Fair Chronicles #2

April: Baroness of Blood and Bone (Once Upon a Name anthology)

July: One Fair Eve (Enchanted Forests anthology)

December: The Fair War, The Fair Chronicles #3


April: Twice Upon a Name anthology

July: Enchanted Flames anthology


The Rose and the Serpent

April: Thrice Upon a Name anthology

July: Enchanted Anthologies (possibly Enchanted Winds)


The first three books in a new prequel series to The Fair Chronicles, tentatively titled the Crowns of the Fair Saga:

A Crown of Thorns

A Crown of Embers

A Crown of Pearls


The final two books in the Crowns of the Fair Saga (titles TBD)

So, there you have it! Which book are you most excited about?

I’m really looking forward to writing The Rose and the Serpent (historical fantasy set in Victorian England, for fans of Stalking Jack the Ripper) and plotting my next five book series, the Crowns of the Fair Saga! It’s going to be set a few decades after the creation of the Fair Realm, and follow the five children of Queen Oriana as they each marry into the Five Kingdoms and face the challenges and politics that come with royal life!
