The Missing Shield

Discover a unique epic adventure of grim intrigues and boiling darkness, secret romance and deadly magic.

With a story that will draw the reader into a new original world of deep discovery and perilous possibilities, The Missing Shield consists of eleven episodes, which together form the first volume in The Veil Keepers Quest: a series wherein the hunt for the shards of an ancient astrolabe must be completed and the artefact assembled before the new millennium dawns to curse the future.  

In this race, the very nature of life itself stands in jeopardy. Across the worlds, not all is what it seems. Enemies old and new rise up and prepare to do battle for the ultimate prize; a friendly face and the title of ‘ally’ no longer equal trust nor respect, and if the mad gods triumph, the chaos which live in their minds will once more be unleashed across the nine realms.

Now, as the price of success grows steep, who will stand and who will falter?

So this is the place where I tell you a bit about myself, but where does an old girl begin? Dreamer, closet-philosopher, fantasy geek, linguist, animal-lover- not-vegetarian (sorry), mother, wife, teacher, archaeologist, administrator and shop-assistant – yes, I can undeniably be accused of having put my hands, and mind, to a little bit of everything over the last two decades. However, it wasn’t until the muse of inspiration struck me over the head with the marvellous idea that I should pick up a childhood hobby of mine, that I finally hunkered down to write some epic fantasy. (And more about that if you flip to the About page).

I am in love with the idea that the ancient library of Alexandria was not destroyed but merely moved so that one day the wonders within might be re-discovered, but in the meantime, I tend to keep both feet on the ground where they belong. I adore cats, horses, coffee, wine, fast cars, ice hockey, family life and harbour a strangely fey fascination with fighter planes. These days I live in the UK, near the Steel City. I believe in kindness and karma. Tomorrow will be different from today, so let your dreams fly, even if you can’t.

Fear nothing; respect everything!
