A fairy-tale infused historical novel for adults set in the late 18 th century, moving between Imperial China and France during the ‘Terror’ of the French Revolution, and inspired by the true story of a quest for a blood-red rose.

The novel will draw upon ‘The Blue Rose,’ a fairy tale set in China about a quest for an impossible rose.

About Me

I’m an award-winning and internationally published author of more than 20 books for both adults and children. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, and when I’m not reading, I’m talking about reading and writing. You could safely call me a bibliomaniac.

I only ever read for my own selfish pleasure, so I read what I want when I want, and I only review books that I have absolutely loved. If you read my blog regularly, you’ll get a sense of the kind of books I like – usually books filled with history, mystery, romance and magic (just like the ones I write).
