Destiny’s Rebel

And here they are!

I was so excited when these books arrived from my publisher, Books to Treasure, prior to the release on 12th September 2015. Yes, it was a thrill to hold my own debut novel, with my name on the front, in my hands for the first time. But that delight was surpassed when I opened it up. For the words inside were mine: my characters, my world, my story. That is the supreme ecstasy for an author, to be able to share our imaginations with the world.

I had a wonderful time at the BOOK LAUNCH! It was on Saturday 12th September 2015, between 4.00 and 7.00 p.m., at the Blackwell’s Bookshop, in Broad Street, Oxford. The Norrington Room was packed, and we sold enough copies to make Destiny’s Rebel their number one bestseller in Teenage and Young Adult Fiction for the week. 🙂

In April 2016, Destiny’s Rebel was one of four shortlisted books from the British Isles Region
for the prestigious Crystal Kite Award from the Los Angeles-based

So what is Destiny’s Rebel about? It’s my debut teenage fantasy adventure novel, set in an imaginary medieval world. It has castles and kingdoms, swords and sailing ships, because that’s what I love. Here’s the blurb:

*

Ten days until she comes of age and Kat feels suffocated. Bullied by her guardians and oppressed by expectation, Kat dreads the Coronation Day that will end her dreams of freedom and adventure. She refuses to surrender to her fate and runs away – straight into a different kind of trap. Captured by slave traders, she realises too late where her true destiny lies.

Will Kat get back to Anestra in time to save her Kingdom from their enemies’ schemes? Can she accept the fate from which she flees? Can she, on this last quest, restore the lost and broken Crown of Anestra with its sacred powers as a relic of the Divine?

Kat’s adventure becomes something far greater, as she weaves through treachery and intrigue to discover the truth about herself, her friends and her place in history.

Can you escape who you’re meant to be?

The wonderful front cover from the highly talented artist and designer Emma Graham Illustrations, depicts the ancient Crown of Anestra. This lost and broken Crown, a sacred relic of the Divine, plays a key role in the adventures of Princess Katelin, and in the story of Destiny’s Rebel.

What a great life. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to believe that I’m living this particular dream. 🙂
