About Me



Let's see, my name is Emily. I'm 22 and love all things fantasy. Faeries, elves, mermaids, vampires, and nymphs are my favorite mythical beings. I've read too many urban fantasy novels to count, and I'm on my way to publish my very first book!

You can find updates on my upcoming book Believe at this site:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Believe/550205254989616




I am currently working on three different novels:
Elfish, Blue Crest, & Believe


Elfish - (YA Epic Fantasy) Takes place in the world of Elfin where a determined high elf struggles to make the most of the cruel life that fate has given her with the help of some unlikely friends.

Blue Crest - (New Adult Urban Fantasy) This book is about a reluctant Siren who lives a dual life of both land and sea. She's half Mermaid and half Nymph, which prompts her to question where her loyalties lie.

Believe - (YA Paranormal Romance) This story is about a seventeen year old girl who sees terrifying, mystical creatures that others cannot. She's forced to ignore the strange, glowing, ethereal beings to have a chance at a normal life. Her sanity is constantly questioned when she meets an absurdly handsome stranger who takes a sudden interest in her.

have you heard of something called 'sword art online'? It's an anime/novel series that I think you'd very much enjoy, especially in the second major arc where it gets into fairies and magic and stuffs
