A bad day spins out of control when Cadence finds herself in the middle of the Tulgy Wood with a grinning cat who can vanish at will and a renown Wonderland hero in need of a companion to the Red Queen’s court.
What happens when the hero who saved Wonderland from the destruction of the famed Jabberwock needs to find a worthy paramour before the Red Queen picks one for him? Devrel, the last of the Cheshire cats, has the perfect solution. He’ll just pluck one from the human world and gift her to him for his un-birthday.
Realizing her friends were playing a joke on her, Cadence is heading home when she sees the cat smiling at her. Next thing she knows, she’s in Wonderland and in the arms of a handsome man who thinks she’s slightly unhinged upon meeting her. Intrigued by Gareth, Cadence makes an offer to act as his companion in exchange for his protection as they journey from the Tulgy Wood to the Red Kingdomâ€”a simple solution which endangers both of their hearts as the castle looms in the distance.

I am told to talk about myself, though I have never been good at that. Back in school, when we had to stand awkwardly in front of the entire class and do this, I mumbled out the requirements and quickly dropped back into the desk chair and slunk down low, hoping to remain unnoticed. Growing up with social anxiety, putting myself out there in front of large crowds was not something I wanted to do.
Canâ€™t really stay in my comfort zone anymore. As an author, I have to put myself out there to get noticed, get my books noticed, and persuade readers to take a chance on my work. I have to do the opposite: get noticed. So, that may be part of the reason I decided to write about satyrs (not a new subgenre of paranormal romance, just not a road often traveled)
So, since I am supposed to talk about myself and introduce myself to you wonderful readers, I am going to do a list of ten random things about me.
- In high school, my friends and I learned the Elder Futhark (runes) to communicate in notes in case they got confiscated. The teacher wouldnâ€™t be able to read it aloud.
- I can recite Lewis Carrollâ€™s â€œJabberwockyâ€ by memory.
- Iâ€™ve been writing since I was twelve years old.
- I believe in the Loch Ness Monster
- My favorite animals are leopards and walruses
- I canâ€™t choose between Chris Hemsworthâ€™s Thor and Tom Hiddlestonâ€™s Loki. I love them both!
- Of my satyr characters, Calix is my favorite. (Even though I shouldnâ€™t pick favorites. The others get resentful!)
- I canâ€™t put on eyeliner to save my life.
- I saw The Phantom of the Opera 5 times in theaters.
- I can play chess but not checkers (so weird, right?)
So thatâ€™s me in a random little nutshell! I hope you check out my Cursed Satyroi series and my newest short story, â€œThe Vanishing,â€ which is actually not a satyr story, but based on Lewis Carrollâ€™s Wonderland books.
The hero was the boy that killed the Jabberwock in the poem, and he is in need of a paramour lest he be set up by the Red Queen and have no choice in the woman he marries. The Mad Hatter and the last of the Cheshire cats also make appearances. I had so much fun writing it!
