In Bonds of the Earth

Romance Novel: Second in the Book of the Watchers trilogy

I'm so excited that the second in my fallen angel series, In Bonds of the Earth, is soon to be released! March 2017 is the date!


To my absolute delight I am immortalised on the "Islands of Erotica" in the Map of Literature by artist Martin Vargic. You should so buy this awesome best-seller of a book!

I will be attending Eroticon 2017, on the 4th-5th March 2016 in London.
