In an Alternative Victorian London, England has a new queen--she just happens to be undead.
Dr. Nettie Jones is a new agent for The Society for the Exploration of the Unexplainable, a secret organization protecting England from unnamed sources. Being half-vampire is an added complication.
The Society doesn't yet appreciate Nettie but fate steps in when invaders from a dying planet begin following her the same day Queen Victoria chooses to be turned into a vampire.
Things become dangerously interwoven when Nettie discovers that a supposed accident was in fact an act of betrayal by one of the agents of the Society. The first shot in a larger conspiracy
Nettie and her fellow Society agents must pull together to thwart the alien invaders, fight off the vampire infestation, and rescue the Queen from becoming the longest ruling undead monarch, even if that rescue is against her will.
BIOGRAPHY Marie is a multi-award winning fantasy and science fiction writer with a serious reading addiction. If she wasn't writing about all the people in her head, she'd be lurking about coffee shops annoying total strangers with her stories. So really, writing is a way of saving the masses.
Her first fantasy series, The Lost Ancients, starts with The Glass Gargoyle. Books two, three, four and five: The Obsidian Chimera, The Emerald Dragon, The Sapphire Manticore, and The Golden Basilisk are all available now. The six book series will conclude with The Diamond Sphinx coming out in spring 2019 .
A space opera trilogy, The Asarlai Wars, launched with Warrior Wench, and continued with the Victorious Dead and Defiant Ruin (Oct 2018).
A steampunk adventure, A Curious Invasion has also been released with the second book slated to come out in 2019--The Mayhem of Mermaids.
When not saving the masses from coffee shop shenanigans, Marie likes to visit the UK and keeps hoping someone will give her a nice summer home in the Forest of Dean or in northern Wales.
Marie is also a member of SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) and RWA (Romance Writers of America).
