Introducing the promotional video for “The Younglings: Shadows & Magic“:

The Younglings: Shadows & Magic (Book One)

A captivating and hilarious paranormal fantasy! After finding out his father is a demon king, Quinn Carter becomes embroiled in a supernatural world — and when paranormal problems spill over into the mortal realm, he and his supernatural team must devise a way to stop it…

Let me introduce myself. The name is Carter. Quinn Carter. A witty, laid-back, regular guy, who just happens to be half-demon.

Humans have no idea what lurks in the shadows.

Mortals don’t expect to see supernaturals. Their minds rarely consider the possibility, even when it’s staring them right in the face. I was one such person … until I met my estranged father.

Finding out Dad is a demon king was like a sucker punch to the gut. Seriously, I’m a total biological freak. Meeting him was the catalyst for my life tail-spinning into a new world—a world where things of legend are real.

The one positive about this whole situation is the friends I have made. Good friends. But they too have secrets … big secrets. They’re not exactly your average individuals. Turns out demons aren’t the only paranormal creatures out there.

I also need to mention a Vampire Ministry, evil stab-worthy demons, and troubled spirits stranded on the spectral plane. As a consequence, life for my friends and me has become a tad problematic.

You’d be surprised how often supernatural beings are the source behind the headline news in mortal newspapers. And it is our job to sort it out…

Things for my paranormal friends and me are about to get very interesting.


The Younglings: Fire & Magic (Book Two)

Protecting innocents in the mortal world is not a job to be taken lightly, and life for the Keepers is spiralling back to Crazyville. The Supernatural Council has their back, but it’s chaos out there.

Stranded spirits, rogue vampires and demons are bad enough, and now merciless witch hunters are stalking Millie.

Eve’s angelic blood is like a siren call—one a tenacious vampire tracker cannot ignore.
Are things for the Keepers about to turn messy?

It’s hard to know who’s the good guy and who’s the enemy. Monsters don’t always have claws or fangs, and they’re not always in the shadows. Sometimes they hide in plain sight.
Can the Keepers protect their own?

“This is such a hilarious and well-paced YA read that introduces us beautifully into a new series. It is absolutely packed with demons, angels, ghosts, witches, and more, all wrapped up in teen angst, misfits and school life.”

“If you’re a Twilight or City of Bones fan, this is for you.”

“I also loved the grannies! What a fabulous team of guardians they had watching over them!”

“If you are a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Supernatural this is perfect reading material to satisfy your paranormal obsession.”

“Quinn is so well written, funny, frustrating and loveable.”

About the Author

“I live with my husband, son, three cats, chickens and two dogs in the beautiful hills of Yorkshire. I love crystals, Reiki and angels. I’m a little bit obsessed with witchcraft too, but don’t tell anybody (my high priestess can be a bit grumpy 😉)  I lead a pretty uneventful life, but as an introvert, that suits me fine. Friends and family are my focus, as well as my fur babies.

I’ve always been an avid reader. There’s nothing better than snuggling down with a glass of wine and a good book and visiting faraway lands. Out of everything I read, and I read a lot, I have a weakness for the freedom that fantasy offers.  I especially love YA fantasy. Reading and writing are synergistic for me. I can’t do one without the other.
