The Terrible Gift — out now!

The Terrible Gift, book one in the Empath Found Trilogy is out now on Kindle Unlimited and paperback! Check it out on Amazon here or on Goodreads here.

“Something weird was happening to me that was completely separate from my usual, everyday weirdness. I felt like there was a magnet buried deep in my sternum and the opposing magnet was this beautiful man. I had a strong urge to go to him and climb him like a tree.”

Here’s the blurb:


Fi has always known there’s something not quite right about herself.


Not quite human.


For as long as she can remember, Fi has been sensitive to other people’s emotions. So sensitive, she works a night job as a cleaner to avoid being overwhelmed by all of their feelings.


After a night on the town goes wrong, Fi comes to the attention of the Academy of Avalon. The obscenely beautiful jerk of a man who comes to collect her confirms her suspicions — Fi isn’t human at all.


But all is not as it seems in Avalon. Magic is dying, those who have it are hunted, and at least one person really doesn’t want Fi there.


Fi also has to figure out how to deal with the insane magnetic pull she feels to some of the most gorgeous and magically powerful males at the Academy. What’s a little boy drama on top of an identity crisis?


The Terrible Gift is book one of the Empath Found trilogy. It’s a fated-mates-with-a-twist, medium burn reverse harem. Suitable for readers 18+




A note from the author…

The Terrible Gift is my first book and it’s been an amazingly fulfilling passion project to work on. The story had been rattling around in my head for a while and I decided to put pen to paper more as a challenge to myself than as an attempt to write a book. It quickly morphed into 66,000 words and we’re only a third of the way through Fi’s story.


Thank you to my lovely husband for supporting my writing journey and to each and every one of you who took a chance on reading it.
