It’s November 2022 and I just published my first novel.

That novel is The Castle — Diary of a Lost Woman. It’s a modern gothic story of myth and misadventure.

Where to buy

The book is available worldwide as a paperback or on kindle. My Australian friends can use Amazon AU to buy The Castle. Other locations are on:

I’ll see if I can get the paperback into a local bricks and mortar store too. If so, I’ll update this page when I do.

What to expect

In this gothic tale of myth and misadventure, adventurous Anna Harker and her sensible friend Catalina Dalca are lured to a remote Romanian mountain range.

After a mysterious email that hints at Anna’s connections to the fictional vampire hunter, Jonathon Harker, Anna is enchanted and enthralled.

Anna’s desires put herself, her friend and her sanity in danger. Together, can they survive the myths, terrors and delights of this weird and ancient castle?
