Author's Bio:
I am an Australian author who began writing when I was fifteen or sixteen, originally song lyrics, but then moved onto fanfiction when I was nineteen. Having published over 20 stories online. One of which was nominated for an award. I have also written, directed and starred in two original plays entitled, “No Frills Airlines: Flight 123,” and the sequel, “No frills Airlines: Come Fly with Us.” The latter of which was a musical.
I have studied everything from veterinary nursing, forensic science and dramatic arts but have always known my true calling was writing.
My hobbies include, writing my books and scripts, reading, singing, acting, directing, watching movies, 50’s fashion and playing with my animals. When I am not writing I can be found reading somewhere comfortable with one or both of my ‘furbabies’.

And here's the author's interview....

1. As we always start on the interviews, try to describe your book in one sentence.
A dark and revengeful urban fantasy full of angels and demons.
2. Why a story about angels? What is so fascinating for you that you decided to write about them?
As I was raised Catholic, I became increasingly frustrated as to why there wasn’t many references to angels in the bible, or really, angel lore. There just wasn’t enough out there, so I began to research and that sparked my desire to write a novel based on angels that was rich with its own history and lore.
3. Did you do any research before starting writing?
I only researched a few of the archangels and Rome but the rest of what’s in this book is either pure imagination or based on real memories.
4. You are a new author. Was it hard to write the book? What kept you stable to finish it and not give up? Did you have any support?
No it wasn’t really hard because this was the second book I’ve written. I had lots of support from friends and family, pushing me to finish and get my work out there and achieve my dream.
5. How long did it take to finish it? Did you have "author's block" at some point and if so, what you did to get over it?
I was writing this book, The Chronicles of Blood and Stone simultaneously with The Chronicles of Fire and Ice so it took me about 4- 5 months to finish. A lot faster than the first book. I didn’t really have any writer’s block with this, it came to me pretty fast.
6. Are you reading or writing something else right now?
I am currently writing two books, the third book in the Legend of the Archangel series, and the first book of its sister series, The Garden of Eden, which is YA. I am also plotting out another completely different YA novel.
As for reading, I am currently reading Recalled by Cambria Hebert and Entice by Jessica Shirvington.
7. Have you always wanted to be a writer or it just happened?
I’ve always had a passion for writing, anything creative really, but writing was always what I was best at.
8. How important you find the communication between you and your readers? Do you reply to their messages or read their reviews?
I think communicating with my readers is extremely important. So many authors don’t even talk to their fans. It’s very important to listen to their feedback, because they are what make or break your work.
9. There are many people that want to be authors. What do you suggest them?
First, finish what you are working on.
Second, get people to read your work, friends, family etc and get their opinion.
Third, start making a name for yourself. Join social media sites and start creating a buzz and a following. After all, you can’t sell books to noone.
10. Something special you want to share?
Here’s a little exclusive teaser never before released from my new project, The Aqua Secret. Release date TBA
I broke the surface and looked around. Why had he led me to my father’s militia headquarters? Rush was in a hurry to get here for some reason, and now he stands to the left of the hatch just staring blankly into space.
“Rush?” I push myself up onto the floor and walk over to join him, hoping to see what he sees. “Rush?” I ask again, but still get no reaction. Time for plan B. I decided to try the one thing I had waited years to do. And I prayed to God that he would like it. I stepped in front of him and became his oxygen. I kissed him.
In that one moment our worlds collided and became one. I wasn’t aware yet, but I had awoken something in him. He blinks and then I feel his lips move against mine.
“It worked!” I step back and admire my handwork. He is looking at me with a weird expression.
“Pym.”
“What? Didn’t you expect me to follow you?”
“No, Pym.” The way he says my name makes me shiver. I realize there is fear and genuine concern in his voice. And a little of something else. Then we hear the sound of the safety being released off a gun and now I know what that something is.
It’s a warning.
“Run.”

The Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown, The Mortal instruments by Cassandra Clare, The his dark materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman, the Lord of the rings by J.R.R Tolkien and any Kathy Reichs book
