Enter the fabulous, jewelled world of the Born and find fantasy, adventure and romance. The author says of this exciting new series: "I am excited to introduce the reader to the Born world. The Penhollow Chronicles features the Penhollows, a family from two of the Born races; the Soul Born and the Light Born. I hope to introduce the readers to characters that they will love, hate, laugh and cry with. Throughout the series, the readers will be introduced not only to new characters, races and powers, but they will also be re-introduced to characters they already know. With elements of suspense, romance and horror, my goal is to peak the readers interest and keep them waiting for the next story."

Her life becomes a whirlwind after meeting Merrik Gates, an enticing rock star she cannot seem to resist. Plagued by nightmares since childhood of demons with flaming eyes, she'll soon find herself in a battle for her very life.
