About the Author
I am author, storyteller, poet - property of one cat, perpetual insomniac, and resident of the New England coast of the United States! In my spare time I bemoan the state 
of the economy, read anything I can get my hands on, and continue my erstwhile pursuit of a double major in Philosophy and English literature.

I'm currently writing for Totally Bound publishing, fulfilling my primary dream of authoring my own books after many years of reading. Currently, Amazon is host to my debut novel, book one of the Eight Kingdoms series. Book two should be out later this year, with plenty more on the horizon, so there's much excitement to be had!

I welcome reviews, comments, critique, suggestions and even just friendly messages with no purpose, so don't be shy!

Sweeter than strawberry, darker than blackberry, better than please…

Son of the wood god, son of a mortal woman, Myrddin has lived a carefree life for sixty years. Now, with his mother dead, the wilderness that has sustained him is an overflowing well of powers he can no longer control. Sent by his father to seek someone who can help him, the one 
Myrddin finds is a nameless stranger, whom he calls Kas.

Kas, so named, is still what his nature demands he be. He is Death, its essence and its king…its master, and its open gate. Since the first death that came into this world, he has been alone, essential and solitary – until Myrddin. For his sake, Kas aids in building the Rite of Spring, and in the process learns love…and loneliness.

Between life and death, want and need, there is just enough space for a new beginning. The question is how it continues – and whether it ends. 

Publisher's Note: This book is linked to the Eight Kingdoms series.

Not one for me
(Updated: March 30, 2016)
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

These reviews, the three-star ones, are the hardest for me to write, and I apologise if it's short.

This book is part of the Eight Kingdoms series, and I have not read them. I wonder if I might have enjoyed it MORE if I had done.

I did LIKE this book. I'm just not sure I GET it, you know?

I liked that Myrddin knew, he just KNEW that Kas was who he was looking for. I liked that Kas did not have the words to express himself correctly. Liked that Myrddin left, and Kas took it upon himself to go find the words he needed. Liked that Kas was clear what he wanted to hear from Myrddin, even though he didn't have the words. Liked that they *sort of* sorted it all out.

I just ...ARGH... don't get it!

I'm sorry. Maybe I should pay better attention to books that come as part of a series or are related to a series.

3 stars

*same worded review will appear on Goodreads,, and Kobo**
