CECILIA is a Literary Classics Award Winning Book. Insightfully penned, with a plot that sizzles.
A pendant. A knife. A forbidden love.
When the corrupt Senators of Vitus send soldiers to destroy the village of Plockton and enslave the young men, eighteen-year-old Cecilia, the lone survivor, makes the bold decision to rescue her brothers. Armed with little more than her wit and her great ancestor’s Freedom Tree pendant, she sets off along the trail left by the soldiers only to be confronted by the assassin Amalardh, a servant of Vitus sent to kill the bearer of a symbol—the same symbol around her neck.
Pieces of an ancient prophecy are falling into place. Cecilia and Amalardh are bound to a greater fate, one that involves the dying Goddess of Light. A complex love story emerges as Cecilia's fight for the truth leads to a fierce stand off between the Senators and their powerful Army of Vitus.
Dark, dangerous and romantic, Cecilia is the story of a detached assassin and a willful forest-dweller, and their epic journey to save the dying Goddess of Light.
BIOGRAPHY Born in Sydney, Australia, I came to America on a professional work Visa, only to find myself studying theater and dance in Chicago. After moving to Los Angeles, I put aside my Bachelor of Applied Science & MBA to study film & entertainment at UCLA.
Realizing my passion for writing, I began writing screenplays, making the quarterfinals of the American Screenwriters Association Screenwriting Competition, top 200 of Page International, and top fifteen percent of the Nicholl Fellowship.
My debut YA/Fantasy CECILIA has gone on to win the Author Academy Award (MG/YA) and the Literary Classics Award (Gold - YA/ Adventure & Silver - YA/Fantasy).
I love snow skiing and snorkeling, and live in LA with my husband and three cats.
